Of Course The CIA Was Plotting To Kill bin Laden.

With Speaker Pelosi caught in the web of her own deceit over what the CIA told her about “torture,” and the Obama administration in the middle of its latest 180-degree reversal over CIA interrogators (Attorney General Holder is now considering prosecutions despite Obama’s promise of no prosecutions), Democrats have trumped up a charge that the CIA, on the orders of Vice President Dick Cheney, failed to notify Congress that it was contemplating — not implementing, but essentially brainstorming about — plans to kill or capture top al-Qaeda figures.

This is their most ludicrous gambit in a long time — and that’s saying something. Given their eight years of complaints about President Bush’s failure to kill or capture Osama bin Laden, and given President Clinton’s indignant insistence (against the weight of the evidence) that he absolutely wanted the CIA to kill bin Laden, one is moved to ask: What did Democrats think the CIA was doing for the last eight years?

And if Democrats did not believe the CIA was considering plans to kill or capture bin Laden, why weren’t they screaming from the rafters about such a lapse?

Of course the CIA has been trying to figure out how to take out top al-Qaeda leaders. One assumes — one hopes — they are also brainstorming about wiping out the Taliban, overthrowing the Iranian regime, undermining Kim Jong Il’s nuclear program, disrupting Syrian support of Hezbollah, and tackling all manner of threats to the United States. But there is no law that requires, or could practically require, the CIA to brief Congress every time some agency component considers the feasibility of some security initiative.

This all about providing cover for Nasty Pelosi. Leon Panetta threw her ass under the bus when she lied about water boarding briefings she received. Now all of a sudden he shows up with a note he found under the pencil tray in the center drawer of his CIA desk. Seems as if Cheney slipped it to Tenet during a meeting on 9-12-01.The content being; G.W. Said "We have been in touch with the leaders of Congress and with world leaders to assure them that we will do whatever is necessary to protect America and Americans". Can we launch some cruise missiles on their ass? I want to kill as many of these m**f**ers as possible!
