    I'm not suggesting that Nancy Pelosi needs to be privy to every conversation that takes place in the Situation Room...but if it goes beyond just conversation and a program or policy is actually started, then congressional leaders should be notified.
    We can have a good debate about what makes the best policy, but to the best of my knowledge there was no statutory requirement that Congress be notified about this operation at this stage.

    This is why I asked you to provide the actual language that imposes these obligations. I think that if you read it, you'll find that it's not as clear cut as you think.

    It cost around $1m over 8 years. In what alternate universe can the government actually run anything on $125k a year?

    To me, that is irrefutable proof that absolutely nothing ever happened with this beyond a few people brainstorming and making slick powerpoints.

    I am not a Cheney fan but the klling of Al Qaeda or cOMMUNISTS or Chavez is a great goal to pursue.

    And the problem is? If they scored a few kills, then I'm even more impressed. The cats they killed probablt deserved to die, anyway.

    Wouldn't it be a hoot if this CIA op bagged UBL, but they couldn't say anything, because of the program's sensitive nature? The Libbos would have to eat **** for years over that one

    Really I just googled that and nothing not from Fox,CNN MSNBC,BBC.nor any of the Major Print News Outlets.

    Even if they have done this so what they haven't broke any Federal Laws just as long as they didn't kill an Elected Foreign Official then its falls under what the CIA does.

    Oh yes! It MUST be incompetence. Cuz, you know, it's so easy to maintain long term clandestine operations against a hostile, decentralized force of extremists. Piece of cake! Barack Obama could work this out on the back of a napkin.

    And it MUST be Bush/Cheney's fault because we know they are both personally responsible for the operational aspects of clandestine missions. I'm of the opinion that the Vice President should take point on every assassination raid we conduct.
