Republican Senators to probe U.S. claims of Iraq MWD’s
“Contending that the credibility of the Bush administration may be at risk, the chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee said Sunday that his panel will investigate the United States’ failure to find evidence of chemical and biological weapons in Iraq.
Sen. John W. Warner (R-Va.), in an interview with the Los Angeles Times, stressed that he remains “of the opinion there has been no deception by the administration.” However, he added, “the situation is becoming one where the credibility of the administration and Congress is being challenged.”
Warner said increasing concern that the intelligence on Iraq was manipulated or flawed warrants an investigation of “the credibility of the information provided by both the CIA and the Defense Intelligence Agency.”
He is requesting that the hearings be conducted jointly with the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence. He said that he had discussed the matter with Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.), chairman of the intelligence panel, and that Roberts was “receptive to the idea.”
When Republican Senators are questioning Bush, along with major print media, asking just where are the MWD’s, then you know there is an internal war in D.C. It looks like some/many in the power elite are asking serious questions about Bush’s credibility – and that can only be good.
Would it be too much to ask that Democratic Senators do the same? What is wrong with them? Why aren’t they SCREAMING about this stuff?
