Rockefeller rips lack of WMDs
Closer to home, it seems Democrats are, one by one, starting to locate their backbones. The latest is WV's Sen. Rockefller -- the ranking Democrat on the Senate intelligence committee.
Sen. Jay Rockefeller of West Virginia challenged comments by Bush administration officials that the weapons were well-hidden and may not be located soon.Also, Rockefeller, working with committee chair Pat Roberts (Kansas GOPer) are pushing the FBI and CIA to investigate the forged documents Bush used as evidence Saddam was building a nuclear program.
Rockefeller said either intelligence agencies hadn't detected the forgery, or they suspected the documents were forged, but may have faced political pressures to rethink that view.Posted May 29, 2003 03:46 PM | Comments (80)
