Quote du Jour

Peter Hoekstra, Republican chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, in a recently leaked letter to President Bush written in May:

I have learned of some alleged intelligence community activities about which our committee has not been briefed. If these allegations are true, they may represent a breach of responsibility by the administration, a violation of the law, and, just as importantly, a direct affront to me and the members of this committee who have so ardently supported efforts to collect information on our enemies.

Bully for Hoekstra, who has been an administration lapdog.

But the letter raises a disturbing question:
Is there a secret program or programs out there to which he is referring that we don't know about?
You can bet on it.
