AP sources: House lays groundwork for CIA probe - Yahoo! News No where in this article does it state that the former head of the CIA has categorically DENIED Vice President Cheney ever ordered the CIA to hide the program from Congress. Nor does it adequately address the known facts that the program never progressed far enough to require notification of the Congress. It does mention in passing that this is nothing more than a smoker screed designed by the Democrats to cover Pelosi's ass but only strributes that to a single Republican. The Democrats will launch investigations designed to accomplish one thing, discredit Republicans and I suspect they will back fire unless the press does dishonest crap like this.
