    Let me be clear. It is my recollection that:


    -- The chairs and the ranking minority members of the House and Senate intelligence committees, known as the Gang of Four, were briefed that the CIA was holding and interrogating high-value terrorists.


    -- We understood what the CIA was doing.


    -- We gave the CIA our bipartisan support.


    -- We gave the CIA funding to carry out its activities.


    -- On a bipartisan basis, we asked if the CIA needed more support from Congress to carry out its mission against al-Qaeda.

    I do not recall a single objection from my colleagues."

    Porter J. Goss
    Director of the CIA from September 2004 to May 2006 and was chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence from 1997 to 2004.

    Get over it. Its either a pack of lying SOBs we have in congress or an alzheimer's pandemic is is in full swing in the capitol. Which is more likely?
    Thank you

    There are several questions I've asked you that you have not responded to. I'm sure you have simply been very busy.

    Thanks.

    How funny that you think that you can keep running in circles asking me questions when you won't even do me the same courtesy.....your response is waiting. But I don't expect the OBVIOUS to actually have an effect on you.

    Obviously it is the former rather than the latter. But let's also not forget that the purposes of this willful denial is purely political and that this has been a recurring theme with Democrats since their decision to vote FOR the War in Iraq.

    Ahhhh, so this is just how frustrated you are with all the testimony being given showing how illegal Cheney's torture program was. First you come out swearing at people and now you've retreated to the old juvenile "Oh yeah, wanna bet?"
