Same old song and dance

My man Dave Johnson:

Following the 1995 bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, Republicans responded by validating the bombers' complaints. They launched hearings blaming the government for the fire at the Waco Davidian cult compound and the shootings at Ruby Ridge.

They're at it again. . .

I don't think it would be a good idea for the Repubs to piss off the Agency any more than they already have with the Plame affair. Being that Prosecutor Fitzgerald has been tight-lipped (by law) and secretive, the Agency might be sending evidence of Rove's (and the rest of their) misdeeds to him under the table. Don't forget, CIA had to eat a lot of crow after Wilson's exposure of Chimpy's bullshit. 'Intelligence failures' I think the term was. If the Repubs are gonna blame the Agency for the Plame incident, expect a lot of closet doors to be opened before it's over.
