Congress Lied To, But Will It Investigate?

“These notifications have led me to conclude that this committee has been misled, has not been provided full and complete notifications, and (in at least one case) was affirmatively lied to.”

So writes U.S. Representative Silvestre Reyes, chair of the House Intelligence Committee. He’s referring to the CIA, the agency that never lies, according to its director, Leon Panetta.

Reyes also says that he’s considering an investigation. So, finally Congressman Reyes understands that the Bush Administration used the intelligence agencies as a political tool, and lied about illegal spying against Americans? After all this time, he’s considering an investigation?

When Representative Reyes is done considering what he’s going to do when the President of the United States intentionally deceives Congress, he can finally sign up as a cosponsor for the legislation that would establish a national commission to investigate all the abuses of power by George W. Bush: H.R. 104.

    All facets of the government lie constantly. To think they wouldn’t lie to each other is the height of ignorance.

    Didn’t Panetta say they lied too?

    1. Rowan says:

      Well, yes, REPORTEDLY. But in public, Panetta says, no, no lies ever ever.

    The corrupted system is revealing itself daily: Obama as a closet right-winger, the Republicans still nuts, and the Democrats all over the place on every issue. Fat chance getting any progressive legislation (like REAL health care) done.
