Democrats come to life in Senate

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) took the Senate into closed session today throwing Republicans into a tizzy.

Reid and the Senate Democrats are demanding that the Senate Intelligence Committee complete Phase Two of the Senate Select Committee on Inteligence report on the intelligence failure on Iraqi weapons of mass destruction.

Last year, Intelligence Committee chairman Pat Roberts (R-KS) said the report would be completed after the November election. Then this past March, Roberts changed his tune and said that "it would be a monumental waste of time to replow this ground any further."

The intelligence failures on Iraq deserve to be investigated, and so far the Republican leadership in Congress has done little more than act as apologists for the White House and its screwups. Thanks to Reid's move today, an agreement has been reached to complete the report.
