Although the Robb-Silberman report didn’t get into the question of Bush administration officials’ statements RE: Iraq’s supposed WMD, the Senate Intelligence Committee is supposed to be looking into the question.
Supposed to be. Apparently, there’s a bit of controversy about the matter, which I wrote about “here”:http://www.armscontrol.org/act/2005_04/Iraq.asp. And a reader kindly pointed me to a “TNR editorial”:http://www.tnr.com/doc.mhtml?i=20050418&s=editorial041805 calling out Senator Pat Roberts (R-KS) (_right_) for trying to scotch the whole investigation.
One example of Roberts-as-shill: He issued a “31 March press release stating”:http://intelligence.senate.gov/050331.htm that it “would be a monumental waste of time to replow this ground any further.”
In other related news: the House Intel Committee ended its investigation quite a while ago without telling anyone.
Solid. Obviously the wrong month to quit sniffing glue…
