I haven't actually read the bill (or the entire article), but I believe the House Democrats are fighting to expand the number of folks who get to receive sensitive intelligence information on CIA covert activities to include left-wing bloggers at HuffingGlue Post. Maybe not, but it's not like the House Democrats actually read the documents they vote on, so where's the crime?
Obama vowed Wednesday to veto the pending Intelligence Authorization Bill if it contains language expanding the briefings beyond the so-called Gang of Eight — the Democratic and Republican leaders of both houses of Congress and heads and ranking members of the two intelligence committees....and O's teleprompter, of course.
The White House said giving all intelligence committee members access to the CIA's covert dealings "would run afoul of tradition by restricting an important established means by which the president protects the most sensitive intelligence activities that are carried out in the national security interests."
"...afoul of tradition". Obama should know.
Do you agree with Nancy Pelosi that the CIA should stop lying to congress and that these briefings should be televised and hosted by Keith Olbermann?
