Reeps are faced with the grimmest of prospects:

Finishing what they started.

Considering how often Reep apologists cite the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence's Report on the U.S. Intelligence Community's Prewar Intelligence Assessments on Iraq, I would think more of them would have read as far as page 2 of the document (pdf page 12):
On February 12, 2004, the Committee unanimously agreed to refine the terms of reference of the Committee's inquiry. In addition to the matters set forth in the joint release of the Chairman and Vice Chairman on June 30, 2003, the Committee agreed to examine additional issues in two phases. Issues annotated as phase one have been addressed in this report. Issues annotated as phase two are currently under review by the Committee. The additional issues are:

  • the collection of intelligence on Iraq from the end of the Gulf War to the commencement of Operation Iraqi Freedom (phase I);

  • whether public statements, reports, and testimony regarding Iraq by U.S. Government officials made between the Gulf War period and the commencement of Operation Iraqi Freedom were substantiated by intelligence information (phase II);

  • the postwar findings about Iraq's weapons of mass destruction and weapons programs and links to terrorism and how they compare with prewar assessments (phase II);

  • prewar intelligence assessments about postwar Iraq (phase II);

  • any intelligence activities relating to Iraq conducted by the Policy Counterterrorism Evaluation Group (PCTEG) and the Office of Special Plans within the office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Policy (phase I and II); and

  • the use by the Intelligence Community of information provided by the Iraqi National Congress (INC) (phase I and II).
See the items in bold? That's what's explicitly not covered in the report that the Reeps are so fond of holding up as an acquittal of the administration.

And now that the Dems are demanding that the Reeps keep their promise to actually look at what they'd like America to believe they already looked at, the Reeps are screaming bloody murder.

What are they trying to hide? Why wouldn't they want this investigation completed?

Lacking an answer to that question, Reeps are once again reduced to playing hide the salami.

I'm talking about the Democrats. By now we've all heard about the closed door session of Congress demanded by Harry Reid. Is there anything else they can do to make themselves look anymore stupid and desperate?

This is the Left on a Hissy Fit. Any Questions?

There are plenty more effective ways of addressing this issue than acting like a two-year-old.

It's a party being run by four year olds.

Grasping at straws to regain some kind of footing after all the political power they have continously lost.

The Democrat minority has hijacked the Senate.

Without warning, Harry Reid invoked Rule 21 and after an immediate second, chased out the press and Senate staffers, locked the doors -- and threw a tanrum over Joe Wilson . . .

In other words, the Democrats just got up at your daughter's wedding to sell term insurance to your guests.
Reeps sure have a lot of -- let's say, interesting? -- euphemisms for "demanding that the Senate do its job."

Yeah, but how many times is enough? Until the Donks get the result they want? How many would that take? Is it envisioned as some sort of endurance test?

No matter how many times you add two plus two, it still comes out four. And no matter how many times pre-war intelligence is investigated, the result is still the same: it was inaccurate but non-politicized.

Nobody lied. Iraq was liberated, and both we and they are better off as a result.

And Harry Reid is still Barney Fife in a non-bow-tied suit.

As pertains to the assertion that the White House politicized intelligence, the number of times it's been investigated appears to be zero. Which is the whole point.

"And Harry Reid is still Barney Fife in a non-bow-tied suit."

Very true.
