PoliBlog: A Rough Draft of my Thoughts

  1. It should be noted that the inquiry into this situation was initiated by Senator John Warner (R-VA). It is nice to see someone on Capitol Hill making some effort at fulfilling their oversight duties.

    Its about time. It is important not to forget that Warner has been one of the biggest apologists for Rumsfeld. Warner calling for independent investigation is an anomaly and is clearly motivated by political realities.

    He was also one of the stronger supporters of the incompetent policies of Paul Bremer and also didn’t seem to mind that Bush lied about the Nigerian uranium fiasco.

    It is inaccurate to present him as some type of independent voice in Congress.

  2. I would argue that I didn’t present him as anything other than the originator of the requested report in question.

    My point was not to extol Warner, per se, but to note that a) at least there is some oversight coming from Congress, anemic though it may be, and, b) that this isn’t the Times or a political enemy of the administration seeking the information.
