We’ve been distracted for a while by hurricane Katrina, and the spectacular failure of government officials from Chertoff on down to protect the American people.
But don’t put anything past Bush and his dirty little cronies. Under the cover of darkness provided by this catastrophe–while the mainstream media pat themselves on the back for refusing to uncritically parrot the administration’s lies THIS time–Congressional Republicans have killed the investigation into the Valerie Plame leak and the Downing Street Memos. Again.
That’s right, they’re actually using the shadow cast by their latest shocking failure to cover their sorry asses for their previous shocking failure–which, lest we forget, is still raging away in Iraq.
