The Bushies must be breathing a huge sigh of relief.
The current upshot of the Senate Intelligence Committee memo flap is that
The Senate majority leader, Bill Frist, has suspended the committee's work until Democrats disavowed the memo, named its author and apologized to [Intelligence Committee Chairman Pat] Roberts. The panel, Dr. Frist said, had been "harmed by a blatant partisan attack."According to Senator Carl Levin of Michigan. the Democrats on the committee "have little inclination to do so."
Thus, the report, which the Bushies never wanted completed in the first place, shows every sign of being aborted.
By the way, making lightweight Pat Roberts chairman of a committee having to do with "intelligence" seems to me the height of irony.
