    On the surface this doesn't feel any different from any other of the countless lies/cover-ups this admin has perpetrated. Congress pays what appears to be only nominal attention, as does the trad media. These things are starting to feel different now, though. Not sure if it's my own optimism coloring how i'm seeing things, but it feels like the attention by the Congress is more genuine, and has more teeth, and that the media is coming around, too. Maybe it's just that they both are finally getting over their collective fear of the Bushies. I'm sure recent displays of spine by Congress and more pronounced petulance by the admin in front of the press helps, as well. Whatever it is, i hope the momentum towards real efforts to hold the admin accountable continue.

      have tried, but, we are a nation of laws (still?) and they need proof.  For years, all the documents that they have requested have been stalled, been redacted by 'white-out' or 'black-out'.  And without sufficient votes in the Senate...there has been no justice.  Yet.
      I've spent many, many hours watching the hearings on Cspan.  We do have great Senate interrogators, such as, Pat Leahy, Ron Wyden, Sheldon Whitehouse, Russ Feingold, Herb Kohl....more.  
      I applaud them all and pray that soon we will be rewarded with the 'truth rising to the top' like 'oil on water'.

        The change i'm feeling is that there seems to be more attention paid to the instances when the vigilant congresscritters are speaking up.

        I still am optimistic we'll get that reward you're talking about.
