Did I call it or what?

Congress plans to scrutinize Plame-related issues :
The chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence could hold hearings on the use of espionage cover soon after the U.S. Congress returns from its August recess, said Roberts spokeswoman Sarah Little.

Little said the Senate committee would also review the probe of special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald, who has been investigating the Plame case for nearly two years.
Let me get this straight. Congress sat on its hands for 2 years. Now, when it seems crystal clear that not only did Rove and Libby leak the fact that Valerie Plame was a CIA agent, but it also appears that they perjured themselves in the process of the investigation, does the Republican controlled Congress engage in its constitutional obligation of oversight.

However, rather than look into whether certain administration officials indeed broke the law, or at the very least, exercised some pretty damn poor judgement, clearly in violation of the non-disclosure agreement that they all signed -- all for the sake of sliming someone who spoke the truth about the lies that the administration used to goad the country into a protracted war for which we have no viable exit strategy -- they are going to look into the probe itself? Roberts had promised us that they would look into how the administration used the flawed intellegence it received after the elections (how conveeenient), but that never happened. Yet, we have time for this probe?


Did I not tell you that Fitzgerald would be the target of the Rove smear-machine now that he seems to be getting too close to the truth? Well, here it comes, courtesy of the Senate Rethuglicans.
