OK

Politics Daily notes that former senator Bob Graham's own notebooks indicate that Pelosi, not the CIA, is in the right here.  

Of course, you would have already known this if you'd been reading Marcy over at FDL.  What's more, you also would know that both Marcy Wheeler and Spencer Ackerman have reported that congressman David Obey (D-WI) has come forward to describe the CIA's briefing timeline errors.

Funny how you don't see this news plastered all over the front pages of the FOX, CNN, or MSNBC websites, isn't it?  (Or getting anywhere near as much play as the GOP-CIA attacks on Speaker Pelosi.)

More after the jump.

Even better: First Marcy Wheeler, then Walter Pincus, write that the CIA's reaction to the release of the torture memos is grounded in the belief that they are being hung out to dry for decisions made by Bush, Cheney and Yoo.  (Of course, the solution for that is not for the CIA employees to continue to protect Bush, Cheney and Yoo, but to be ready, willing, and able to testify against them.)

Fire Dog Lake:  Where you can read tomorrow's TradMed headlines (or what should be their headlines) today!

[UPDATE:  The CIA responds to David Obey by essentially saying that, um, well, we really didn't mean to imply that our briefing timeline was all that authoritative.  But we're not lying!]
