America is at war.
We are at war against the network of international terrorists who committed the mass murders of 9/11. We are at war against the survivors of Saddam Hussein's regime, and against the remnants of the Taliban in Afghanistan. Americans have died, and continue to die in this struggle. The leadership of the Democratic Party is also at war. However, their war is against President George W. Bush. And this war is the highest priority of Democratic decision-makers -- even within the traditionally nonpartisan Senate Select Committee on Intelligence. On November 5, 2003, Americans were given an unprecedented look inside the Democrats' war, when Fox News published an astoundingly revealing memorandum from within the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, describing how Democrats on the Committee intend to use their positions, influence, and access to information - not to help win the war on terror, or to protect American citizens - but to undermine the Bush Administration. The memo describes their agreement to launch an "independent investigation" as a means to that end, timed to coincide with the 2004 presidential campaign. The purpose of a real investigation, of course, is to gather information, analyze it, and arrive at a conclusion. But the memo makes it clear that the Democrats on the Intelligence Committee have already reached their conclusions. This "investigation" is a sham, intended purely to support and publicize their political agenda. By signing onto this scheme, the Democratic members of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence have abused their positions, undercut American troops and agents in the field, and violated their oaths of office. This must not stand.
Democrats on the Intelligence Committee have now had more than 100 days to disavow this plan, and have not done so.
