I thought it was odd that he brought it up too. I'm trying to remember various exchanges from that hearing given this news and what I keep coming back to is Rockefeller's last statement, which followed Roberts odd comment. I don't listen to him enough but he sounded very emotional in talking about his belief in the law. Negroponte followed that with a last sentence saying that all of the panel members take an oath and they take it seriously.
If it's common knowledge among them that Rockefeller is the guy, that makes that last exchange pretty dramatic. Didn't Rockefeller also ask if the program was covert?
His comments followed Rockefeller's .. but I can't remember exactly what
Hey OXENinFLA .... I can't seem to find the transcript of this Senate Intel Hearing ... do you know where I can find it???
I thought I had recorded over the hearing that I taped .. but I still had the end of it
Roberts comments came after DiFi's questioning
Roberts kept talking about the committee and (9/11) investigations under previous leadership and independent staff .. which I believe would be Rockefeller
Also .. after Roberts tried to end the hearing .. Rockefeller chimmed in and wanted to respond .. and in the middle of Rockefellers lecture about following the law because the law is the law .. Roberts left the hearing before jay finished talking
Didn't Rockefeller also ask if the program was covert?
Yes he did .. he asked if it was a covert action as defined by the National Security Act
Negroponte answered no and then Rockeller said that was what they were told by the Justice Department yesterday
