This Seems Stupid
"Republicans Limit Probe of Iraq Intelligence"
. Geez, maybe we should probe Republican intelligence, which also seems to be limited.
Have the hearings, get the headlines out of the way. The cover-up, if any, is always worse than the crime. So far, the Administration is, arguably, guilty of being too zealous in pursuit of American security. Hey, we can get over it - I would rather they over-react to a threat than under-react to it, and my keen political radar tells me that I am not alone in this view.
But if the newsies smell "cover-up", this issue will never go away, and justifiable decisions will acquire the aroma of scandal.
I cannot square this with my "Karl Rove is a genius until proven otherwise" thesis.
