Would You Like Some Cheese With That Whine?: Democrats now seem to be upset that the FBI dared to do something right and that the Bush administration had the audacity to mention it…
“Several Democratic lawmakers yesterday questioned whether the Bush administration was trying to deflect criticism of the FBI by revealing the capture of a “dirty bomb” suspect one month after his arrest.
“…Asked whether she was suspicious about the timing of the announcement, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, California Democrat, said she will look into “rumors” that the government has a weak case against al Muhajir.
“I’m very concerned about rumors that there might not be much to it,” said Mrs. Feinstein, a member of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence. “I want to check it out.”
Sen. Christopher J. Dodd, Connecticut Democrat, said the administration is waging too much of its war on terrorism in secret.
“I wonder if they have anybody else,” Mr. Dodd said. “Everything is secret. They’ve got to hold people in secret. We’ve got to have secret meetings about homeland security. I’m getting concerned that this [announcement of a suspect] is a little hype here.”
Does anyone else find it ironic that we have Christopher Dodd simultaneously complaining that things are being done in “secret” and then one sentence later calling it “hype” when information is released? Furthermore, do the Democrats not understand the image they’re presenting here? They come off in this article as partisan crybabies who seem irritated that the FBI caught a terrorist because it might interfere with the non-stop b*tchfest about pre-9/11 intelligence that they’re engaged in. If that’s how they want to portray themselves, it’s fine with me. I’m hoping that the Republicans can win the Senate back in November and every little bit helps…
