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.
Uh, excuse me...?! I won't click on Wash Post excerpts because I decline to answer their screening questions about my age, gender, ZIP Code and country of residence just to gain access to their website. I don't do it for LA Times or others either. That's why I asked if anybody would care to recap. Call it a quirk of mine, but it's my choice and has nothing to do with avoidance of reading opposing points of view which I do every day here on FR. But not at the expense of jumping through the hoops of media outlets so they can target my email or gain stats on their readership.
As far as ignorant...gee, you're cranky today, huh?
