  •  Hardly anyone read the NIE before the IWR vote (3+ / 0-)

    even though Bob Graham (Chair of Senate Intel) told Dem Caucus to do so.  I know that our current SoS didn't read it before voting for the IWR, and I doubt that our VP did, either.

    Reality is, there are few in either house who want to really bother.  It's easier to go along w/ the National Security State--no potential challenger will question them for doing so, and, besides, it's hard work when you have to get back on the phone and solicit donations.

    Some men see things as they are and ask why. I dream of things that never were and ask why not?
