Frist Disbands Senate Intel Committee Over Memogate
NewsMax ^ | 11/8/03 | Limbacher

Posted on 11/08/2003 8:29:55 AM PST by Tumbleweed_Connection

Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist has temporarily disbanded the Senate Intelligence Committee until committee Democrats reveal the identity of the author of a memo outlining a their plan to politicize intelligence data in a bid undermine President Bush's reelection.

"The Senate Select Committee on Intelligence has been harmed by a blatant partisan attack," the Tennessee Republican said in a floor speech yesterday, concluding that the memo had rendered the committee "incapable of meeting its responsibilities to the United States Senate and to the American people."

"Those responsible for this memo appear to be more focused on winning the White House than they are on winning the war against terror," Frist complained before adding, "There will be no more pulling along and no more useful collaboration on partisan schemes."

Committee Chairman Pat Roberts echoed Frist's decision to shut his committee down, saying, "Unless and until this reprehensible attack plan and strategy to derail the committee's important work is properly addressed, I am afraid that it will be impossible to return to business as usual in the committee."

A committee meeting scheduled for yesterday was canceled, and none has been scheduled for next week, a senior committee staff member told the Washington Post.

Frist also demanded that Democrats implicated in the Memogate scandal deliver "a personal apology" to Sen. Roberts.

Though retiring Georgia Democratic Sen. Zell Miller has called the memo, first leaked to radio host Sean Hannity on Tuesday, "perhaps treasonous," other Democrats circled the wagons on Friday.

Nevada Sen. Harry Reid complained on the Senate floor that the memo had been "pilfered" by Republicans then leaked to the media, saying that act was just as offensive as anything revealed by the controversial document.

Frist needs to disband this committee and fire the current staff members of the committee. All that has happened so far is they've cancelled one meeting. Big deal.

In fact, I think Newsmax may be inventing the term "disband" here. Let's see if any of the other media use the same term.

Dick Durbin is far more demonic than you may realize. In order to negate the republican version of the Partial Birth Abortion Infanticide ban recently, Deadly Dicky pushed his alternate bill that would 'ban all abortion after (I think) the fifth month of pregnancy, except for the life and health of the mother'. Since demonic Dickhead knows and plans for the 'health of the mother' clause to be wide enough to accomodate any excuse the serial killer abortionists wishes to cite, it became evident that Durbin was doing more than trying to stall or obstruct passage, he was trying to find a new way to guarantee that the slaughter continue unabated by deceiving the voting public! THAT is the definition of a ghoul, IMHO.

Good grief! Is this a committee or a coven? And these lefties are in charge of our military secrets!

Yours is the most on point comment I've yet read regarding this sedition by the anti-american demonrats. Please send that to Hannity at his website, the nation needs to hear it expressed so precisely.

You asked, "I wonder what changed their minds?" ... (to make a big deal out of this memo). My guess is Sean told some Pubby just who sent the copy, and it was a patriotic dem staffer (yes, there are some, and they must be suffering terribly as the clintonization/McAwfulism to their party pushs it further into the sewer of sedition) who couldn't let the democrat treachery go unexposed! Being a dem source makes the democrat outrage and bluster of 'stolen' all the more damning to the fools on the "D" side.

Why have the Dems misplayed this so badly? It could be because the Memo goes straight back to HRC, and she has forbade Rockefeller from serving up her hack who wrote the Memo in the first place. Just maybe.

Or it could just be arrogance and presumption. They may have figured that they've gotten away with so much other crap, thanks to help from their allies in the media and the Republican's refusal to call them on anything, that they would get away with this one to if they just hunkered down and waited for it to blow over.

This time, however, the Republicans appear to have finally had enough.

Well, while Sean Hannity (nice scoop) and a few top Republicans may know who leaked the Memo, I sure don't.

But I can tell that if I were Senator John Edwards, that I would have done it. Edwards is retiring from the Senate and gunning for the Democratic Party Presidential nomination.

What better way to distinguish yourself from the other Democratic Party candidates than by revealing their complicity in sedition while showing your own patriotism. Edwards lurches to the Right, wins the Democratic primaries in the South, and is suddenly positioned as Mr. Ethical in time for the Boston convention next year.

Edwards then joins Zell Miller as the conservative conscence of the Democratic Party.

But that's just me.

Edwards is a trial lawyer. Seeing the ethical way to the Democratic Presidential nomination is *far* outside his worldview.

So write this up as an opportunity not taken by him. Since he probably didn't leak this Memo, he's no doubt blown his best chance to make the history books. In fact, I wouldn't rule out that he had a hand in writing it, regardless of what Crokerfeller says.

You got that right, Lady! The hatred for clinton caused conservatives to dig deeper and expose his treason. Hatred of our President Bush casues the dems to desperately choose ANY LIE they think will have wings, to try and destroy the administration (and if that means the nation with it, they will gladly take it to get back into power for their liberal / scoialist agenda). All Americans are expendable, to the democrats in their quest to rule. They've proven it once again with this degenerate plan for sedition.

Nita Nupress said: "...Watergate was never about national security."

I disagree here.

As I recall over sixty people, many of them holding the highest posts in our land, were convicted of felonies involving government sponsorship of burglary and obstruction of justice. One of the mechanisms used to deflect the FBI away from investigating fully was the suggestion that a CIA mission would be compromised by interrogations.

Protection of the integrity of our domestic institutions is as vital to national security as the defeat of foreign enemies.

One of the burglaries was committed to discredit those who sought to reveal government secrets involving the VietNam war.

<< This would be an interesting trade...Frist agrees to drop the matter of the memo, and reconvening the senate intelligence comittee and in return we get the judges we want! >>

I gotta better idea.

We put in prison those power-lusting un-and-anti-American bastards -- our enemies -- whose vacant minds are but the noxious-weed-infected vacant lots that envy, hated, raged and delusionally fantasized the subject memo into existance -- one J Rockefellow first among them -- and replace them all with capital R Republicans.

AND, seperately and additionally get the judges we need to restore Our Beloved FRaternal Republic.

This and other similar issues are, in 2003, so immediately topics for general discussion in every corner of Our Nation -- and around the world we so dominate -- that the "DemocRATS" seven and a half decades long effective ownership, operation and control of the levers of feral-gummint power -- and of the United States Congress -- will not stand.

This and every other recently made public instance and example of their time-of-war treasons and treacheries will but hasten their deserved demise and speed up their one-way trip into History's garbage can.

As the 2004 Election Year is about to demonstrate.

Bring the bastards on!

It's long past due for the Republicans to take the gloves off. "Turning the other cheek" and "taking the high road" allows the scum to proliferate.

Thank you...THANK YOU.

I have said for years the Republican party does all their moves like gentlemen in a card game, and the Demorats fight like back alley thugs. We get beat over and over again because we just don't stand up and take off the gloves. Sometimes we look downright Pu$$ywhipped over that method of behavior. Good for Bill Frist.

Are you perhaps under estimating the number of dumbed-down democrat blind partisanship voters? Those poor suckers cannot and will not see what is beofre the nation and the world proving democrat party treacherous sedition! Any voting block that will robotically support a political party because that party promises them the rite of infanticide should not be underestimated for their destructiveness to a Republic. If they will empower the democrats for their promises of continued infanticide, they will sacrifice anything to serve their ghouls.

Zell is the only one (to my knowledge) who's had the guts to use the appropriate language here, but Frist's action sure is a pleasant surprise. Frankly, I didn't think he had it in him.

Perhaps Frist found the courage when he saw Zell Miller had the convictions to call it like it is.
Seeing someone stand up when something is dead wrong sometimes helps others see that they can also stand up and be counted.

I have been told more than once in my life that I seem to sometimes have the guts to say something to the powers that be that everyone else is thinking but is too scared to say out loud. I will continue to speak out. I would rather speak out and be wrong sometimes than to stand silent with the right thoughts unsaid.

There is a huge voting bloc in the soldiers and their families. Every soldier waiting to be deployed soon will hear about this one way or another and understand that the dirty dems don't care about their welfare. It is all about the dirty dems getting back in power. They have tried one scheme after another to no avail,and the more they fail,the more desperate they become. This is not a Rockefeller scheme,everone knows he is dumber than dirt. We need to look at Slick Hillary, Slick Willie metrosexual,Terry McAuful,Reid,Levin,and the former white house aide in the defense dept that worked for slick hillary. I will bet money that this is a democrat staffer that is patriotic and felt compelled to do this. Maybe someone from Indiana like Evan Bayh's aide.

The gall of this man saying this! There is no shame whatsoever in this party anymore!

I don't buy the stated notion that a "staffer" wrote this either without direction from several higher ups, including Rocky and none other than Hillary Clinton as this has her stinky pantsuit all over it.

That certainly took some balls. But the end I really don't think we have anything to fear from an investigation into pre-war intelligence. But the Republicans sure are acting like there is. Perhaps they bought into the spin on Kay report.

It's certainly unseemly for the Dems to be explicity using their seats on the Intel commitee for partisan purposes. But the best way to counteract that is to demand a fair and complete investigation, no?

There's a link to an FR thread in #67.

As much as it pains me to do so, here's another link about it -- to the Washington Compost. But don't give them a hit unless you REALLY have to!

Seized Intelligence Files Spur U.S. Investigations

By Steve Coll
Washington Post Staff Writer
Monday, November 3, 2003; Page A15

BAGHDAD, Nov. 2 -- The CIA has seized an extensive cache of files from the former Iraqi Intelligence Service that is spurring U.S. investigations of weapons procurement networks and agents of influence who took money from the government of Saddam Hussein, according to U.S. officials familiar with the records.

(snip)

The officials declined to name individuals who they believe received funds or to name the home countries of the alleged recipients. One official said the recipients held high-ranking positions and worked both in Arab countries and in other regions. A second official said the payments were the subjects of "active investigations" by U.S. government agencies.

The recipients of the Iraqi funds were described by U.S. officials not as formal intelligence agents, but as prominent personalities and political figures who accepted money from Iraq as they defended Hussein publicly or pressed his causes.
