Where's the Outrage?
Eleanor Clift writes in Newsweek online edition:
"Republican lapdogs on Capitol Hill rushed to cash in on 'Rathergate.' Rep. Chris Cox, chairman of the Homeland Security Committee, urged the House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Telecommunications to investigate CBS's use of potentially falsified documents. This is a party that launches investigations into Janet Jackson's wardrobe malfunction—and now this—while ignoring the intelligence lapses that led the country into an unnecessary war in Iraq, and covering for Bush when he exaggerates the progress in that nation’s development. The National Intelligence Estimate prepared for the president in late July, and reported Thursday by The New York Times, describes Iraq in far more pessimistic terms than Bush does on the campaign trail, with civil war a likely outcome.
The White House kept the report under wraps for two months, yet where is the outrage?"
The outrage is right here, right here. And the outrage will continue to be reported here through November 2.
