Quote of the Day

''How secure can we really be with the final analysis and key judgments?''

Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, casting doubt on the National Intelligence Estimate report that Iran ended it's nuclear weapons program in 2003.

First thought: the fact that she feels secure taking Bush's and Cheney's assertions on Iran seriously after they were dead wrong on Iraq should give her constituents pause. Second thought: Ros-Lehtinen didn't seem to bothered by the cherry-picked intell coming from the defunct Office of Special Plans. The intelligence agency was created by Donald Rumsfeld and Douglas Feith and reported directly to Dick Cheney's office.

Ros-Lehtinen voted to declare Iraq the central front on terror and to give Bush the authorization for war. She voted against giving President Clinton the power to invade Kosovo. She decides foreign policy on petty partisanship. Ros-Lehtinen is utterly unserious and should be treated as such.
