    Excerpt:
    CIA director Leon Panetta, in an article published Sunday, said Democrats must recognize that the "reality" of 9/11 is what drove the crimes of the Bush bastards after 9-11, which somehow should justify not looking into suspected crimes. He added, in an apparent warning to the House Intelligence Committee, that "focusing on the past" could hurt the CIA’s core mission amid a climate of recriminations over its practices. "I’ve become increasingly concerned that the focus on the past, especially in Congress, threatens to distract the CIA from its crucial core missions: intelligence collection, analysis and covert action," Panetta opined in the Washington Whore Post. "In our democracy, effective congressional oversight of intelligence is important, but it depends as much on consensus as it does on secrecy," he continued. "We need broad agreement between the executive and legislative branches on what our intelligence organizations do and why. For much of our history, we have had that. Over the past eight years, on specific issues - including the detention and interrogation of terrorists - the consensus deteriorated. That contributed to an atmosphere of declining trust, growing frustration and more frequent leaks of properly classified information.

    Fuck them.
    Would you rather hear the truth than allow the CIA to cover-up their many crimes?

    "People had different perspectives about when Congress needed to be briefed."

    Isn't that like Willie Sutton saying,
    "People have different perspectives about whose money the bank is holding."

    Jay, you know I love ya. But do you honestly think any high-ranking member of the Bush Administration is ever going to be prosecuted for anything of importance? The Dems rolled over and played dead for these guys and they know it. They're not going to let anybody look too deeply into how much they let Bush and Co. get away with while they were busy looking for their collective balls.
