The friends of America's enemies are on the move. Patrick Leahy, the leftwing looney from the People's Republic of Vermont can't wait to subvert the war effort even more than he has up until now. He is warning of tougher oversight of the war on terrorism and, as the incoming chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, he is creating a new subcommitte. This one is to focus on legislation dealing with issues such as torture and detainee treatment. Democratic Whip Dick "The Turban" Durbin of Illinois will be the chair. The man who compared our soldiers to the Gestapo, the KGB and the Khmer Rouge is the Donk's idea of a fine unbiased overseer of our military's treatment of captured killers.
Meanwhile, Senator Bill Nelson, Democrat Florida, a member of the Armed Services and Foreign Relations committees, met with Assad of Syria even though the State Department said that it disapproved of his trip. The Donk's continue to display their absolute inability to show a united front in wartime.
Nelson was named to the Senate Intelligence Committee this week and said he was on a fact-finding mission to the region. Would you like to know what fact he discovered? Assad "clearly indicated a willingness to cooperate" in controlling the border with Iraq, he told reporters. Nelson reported this startling revelation to embassy officials and plans to brief other committee members as well. This guy should team up with Silvestre Reyes and they can become the "Dumb and Dumber" duo of DC.
