    •  Was that the 108th? (5+ / 0-)

      If so, I'm guessing they would have been Tom Daschle, Bill Frist, Jay Rockefeller, Pat Roberts, Nancy Pelosi, Denny Hastert, Jane Harman and Porter Goss?

    •  Harry Reid's the only democrat (5+ / 0-)

      who isn't listed, I think...unless the briefing took place before Daschle's loss in 2004, in which case shouldn't Reid still have been brought up to speed?

      The eight would be Chair and ranking member of the Senate and House Intelligence Committees, and the Majority and Minority leaders of the Senate and Speaker and minority leaders of the House.

      At the time, Rockefeller and Harman were the ranking minority members of the committees, and Pelosi was minority leader.

      This leaves Frist and Hastert as the senate majority leader and Speaker, with Pat Roberts as the Senate committee chair, and Porter Goss (through Sept. 23, 2004) and Pete Hoekstra (until the beginning of this year) as House chair as the potential briefees.

      If its the 2005 memos being talked about, the five are Reid, plus Republicans Frist, Hastert, Roberts, and Hoekstra.
