Rocky Times For The OSP

Remember the White Office For Special Plans? It's the group that brought us the flaming turd that is the Iraq war and all of its glory. Well, the Pentagon's Inspector General has released a report declaring that the OSP's manipulation of the pre-war intelligence was "inappropriate, but legal."

Not so fast says Senate Inelligence Committee Chairman Jay Rockefeller who released this brief statement. From TPM Muckraker:

“The IG has concluded that this office was engaged in intelligence activities. The Senate Intelligence Committee was never informed of these activities. Whether these actions were authorized or not, it appears that they were not in compliance with the law.

“In the coming days, I will carefully review all aspects of the report and will consult with Vice Chairman Bond to determine whether any additional action by the Senate Intelligence Committee is warranted.”

Careful review indeed! I can't wait to see these jackasses go before the committee for questioning. Should be a hoot though they would be wise to take a cue from Dave Chappelle and plead the fizzifth.
