For those of us who won't jump through Wash Pist hoops on principle, can you please hightlight what Roberts is saying? Or is he busy building bridges?

"Democrats have been calling for an expansion of the committee's review to include the "use" of intelligence by Bush administration policymakers.
While this sounds reasonable on the surface, it conceals a more nefarious intent. A memo written by the committee's Democratic staff, revealed in the press last week, makes clear that the minority's goal is to prejudge and use the committee's review and what the memo describes as "vague notions regarding the use of intelligence" to "castigate" the Republican members of the committee and conduct a partisan attack on the president. I will not allow this to happen. "
Here's a little snippet that gets to the point.

Building Bridges...?? This appears a very explicit and scathing statement.
Roberts is finally establishing his position as committee chairman and laying the foundation for the future.
I expect a full investigation into "Memogate"... and I think we can be assured this treasonous act by the "RAT" party will have play in the upcoming 2004 election.
The RATS are in deep trouble with those that count... the electorate.
THIS IS NOT GOING AWAY!

What principle keeps you from reading unpleasant, partisan, opposing, disturbing points of view? Do you want to remain ignorant?
The stated purposes of the committee are
We are evaluating the quantity and quality of intelligence as well as the reasonableness of the judgments reached by the intelligence community...We are also focusing on whether anyone was pressured to tailor or change his or her analysis to conform to a specific policy goal...Finally, we intend to conclude whether the intelligence community's judgments were correct, after David Kay completes his search for weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.
Roberts feels the Democrats want to extend the investigation to question how the Administration used the intelligence it got...which he feels is improper and partisan.
