A Rare Occasion

It's an extraordinarily rare occasion when I find myself in agreement with Republican leadership, but that's where I find myself today. Yesterday Hastert and Frist were trying to muddy the leak investigation waters by playacting outrage over the leaking of classified information regarding the secret prisons being run in our name in the former Soviet Union.

Were they concerned with the underlying fact there, that we're running secret prisons in the former Soviet Union, for crissakes? No, but they were PO'd to high hell (or at least that's the stance they decided to take) that word about it got out. So they called for an investigation. Good.

Let's investigate just what in God's name is going on with this secret prison system the CIA is running. Why the need for secret prisons, may I ask? What exactly are you hiding there? Whatever it is, I'm sure it falls squarely within the boundaries of the law. We don't torture, don't ya know.

And Trent Lott. My, my, my. Revenge is a dish best served cold, isn't it Trent? Unfortunately for the best laid plans of these two mice-men, Trent seems to know where the leak originated. Seems the subject came up during Dick "Dick" Cheney's closed door meeting with Republican senators last week and then made its way to the Post.

Cheney, of course, was there trying to strong-arm the GOP senators into into supporting his desperately desired CIA exemption from the anti-torture amendment (hmm....what is it, again, that 2 plus 2 equals? Oh yeah. Wholly un-American and immoral activities sanctioned by the Vice President and his minions). "We have met the enemy," Lott told CNN's Ed Henry, "and it is us."

No kidding.
