(More)Democrat weirdness in the House Intelligence Committee

Here’s more dust in your eyes

Maybe it’s not dust in the eyes, but spaghetti against the wall hoping something believable will stick.

First House Intelligence Committee Chairman Silvestre Reyes, D-Texas, said the CIA outright lied in one case.

“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,” Reyes wrote to Michigan Rep. Peter Hoekstra, the committee’s senior Republican. A copy of his letter was obtained by The Associated Press.

Reyes said in the letter that he is considering opening a full investigation.

The ranking Republican on the House Intelligence Committee said the flap between Democrats and CIA Director Leon Panetta over whether the intelligence agency lied to lawmakers is “bizarre” and shows the Democrats lack leadership.

“[Republicans are] just kind of sitting on the sidelines. We’re trying to focus on national security policy, national security issues, and the Democrats, from my perspective, are looking for some adult supervision. There’s no leadership here at all. … This is very, very bizarre,” Michigan Rep. Peter Hoekstra said on CBS’ “The Early Show” Thursday.
