The sharks are circling:
Former CIA Director Stansfield Turner publicly calls Cheney “a VP for Torture.” — “We have crossed the line into dangerous territory. I think it is just reprehensible.”
The White House criticizes Rep. John Murtha, a decorated retired Marine Colonel who has called for troop withdrawal…. Yeah, chickenhawks who got deferments and never served can really make a good case by going after Bronze Star winners….
Republican Senator Chuck Hagel accuses the Administration of ‘dividing the country’ by attacking Iraq war critics. “To question your government is not unpatriotic — to not question your government is unpatriotic,” Hagel said, arguing that 58,000 troops died in Vietnam because of silence by political leaders. “America owes its men and women in uniform a policy worthy of their sacrifices.”
Special Prosecutor Fitzgerald calls for a new Grand Jury in the CIA leak case. More indictments could be forthcoming.
Is it just me, or is there a distinctly Watergate-ian feel about all of this?
One can only hope.
