PAT ROBERTS, PARTISAN HACK….Is Pat Roberts, the weaselly chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, really going to deep six the second half of his committee’s investigation of the Iraq war? You know, the part about the administration’s manipulation of prewar intelligence? The part that might be a wee bit embarrassing for Roberts’ fellow Republicans during an election year?

Apparently the answer is yes, and he’s doing it via the most transparently political hackery it’s possible to imagine. Greg Sargent has the details. (And further confirmation here.)
