national security ahead of politics.

Wow, are the heavens changing? Friday, Scooter get indicted (yea hoo), by the most dangerous looking prosecuter we've ever seen, and he's still hot on the trail of others in the administration. And today Give 'em hell Harry, kicks crybaby Frist's ass and forces the Senate to take action on the most pressing issue of the day, the lies that lead to the Iraq War. I'm all giddy, it's almost fightening.

(From Americablog)
U.S. Senators reached an agreement to monitor a congressional investigation into the Bush administration's use of intelligence about Iraq after Democrats forced an unusual closed session on the Senate floor to draw attention to the issue.
The closed session began about 2:15 p.m. today Washington time when Democratic Minority Leader Harry Reid invoked a rule forcing the session, which required the chamber to be cleared of visitors and cameras to be turned off. It ended about 4:35 p.m. with Majority Leader Bill Frist announcing the creation of a six- member task force to monitor progress of the probe.

Reid said Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Pat Roberts promised more than a year ago to conduct an investigation into whether the Bush administration misused intelligence before the Iraq war.
Democrats: We put national security ahead of politics.
