The Windbag from Massachusetts wins hands down today. John Hinderaker at Power Line nails him:
The Democrats evidently aren’t happy with the release of the “key judgments” of the National Intelligence Estimate on global terrorism, because now they’ve demanded that the White House release the entire report.
That will get them what they’re looking for, i.e., headlines like this one: “White House refuses to release full NIE.” The Democrats knew, obviously, that the administration can’t release the entire document without both endangering agents and compromising the ability of intelligence analysts to write candid assessments without worrying that their work product will wind up in the newspaper. But for now, at least, they can change the subject.
Ted Kennedy weighed in with the most surreal attack:
“The American people deserve the full story, not those parts of it that the Bush administration selects,” said Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, D-Mass.
That would be hilarious, if it were not so contemptible. When Democrats in the bureaucracy illegally leaked misleading portions of the NIE’s “key judgments” in hopes of influencing the election, that was fine with Kennedy. But when the administration declassified the entire “judgments” section so that the American people can read it all and judge for themselves, now Kennedy complains that the voters aren’t getting “the full story.” Absolutely outrageous, but typical of the Democrats’ ever more hysterical campaign.
