LIBs: Get oversight, but it already existed.

C.I.R. Press Editorial

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- “The declassification was requested by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. The records show that 95 lawmakers participated in at least 30 briefings. Every one of those lawmakers was briefed more than once.

Pelosi, D-Calif., was briefed six times -- four times between October 2001 and June 2002, and twice in 2004.

One source told FOX News that Pelosi's briefings coincide with the time during which the NSA was putting together its terrorist surveillance program. The briefings she attended were on that program alone and not other NSA programs.” -FNC

There you go, you have your blessed oversight; I know you don’t want to admit it but it was there all along. Should I now assume that you will not only hold the President accountable? Of course not. Liberals will use this information to make more insane charges against President Bush. I have a crazy idea if you are in that boat. Oversight does not mean you get to listen to the information and throw the responsibility of doing things about it the other way. Now they know, for certain, if it is so bad they should be ending the program by any means correct? Did they? No. Are they? No.

Note: What good is oversight when you have Pelosi and others receiving the information for years and doing nothing about it? If anything you should hold the members of congress more responsible than the President. If he is one man and they are many, why did they not end something that you seem to believe violates your rights?

I have your answer! It isn’t violating your rights, is not illegal, and is necessary for national security.
