Playing Politics

PLAYING POLITICS….John Kerry and Ted Kennedy have attached amendments to this year’s intelligence funding bill asking for copies of the White House’s daily intelligence briefing (Kennedy) and more information about secret CIA prisons (Kerry). Pat Roberts has already agreed to these amendments, but intelligence funding is now being held up because someone objects to them.

Who? We don’t know. Some brave but anonymous Republican who’s apparently doing the White House’s bidding but is afraid to say so has put a hold on the bill. Stout fellow. I’m glad to see that for Republicans in the Senate, covering up for the White House is more important than our national security.
