And I'm sure we're going to be seeing Condi Rice testify under oath real soon about all of this, right? And we'll be seeing perjury charges, too, right?
Also, isn't it odd how quickly things become not very important to national security when it suits these people? Why not reveal who leaked Valerie Plame's identity? Why not release the Energy Meeting minutes? Why not release all the minutes of the meetings that Clarke has been talking about that are in dispute, that could settle all of this?

'Mr. Clarke has told two entirely different stories under oath,' Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist said in a speech on the Senate floor.
The Tennessee Republican said he hopes Clarke's testimony in July 2002 before the House and Senate intelligence committees can be declassified. Then, he said, it can be compared with the account the former aide provided in his nationally televised appearance Wednesday before the bipartisan commission investigating the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks."
