Yet Another Dick

Oh yeah. Go watch this pathetic video over at Crooks & Liars. Dick Durbin (D-IL) is bleating on the Senate floor about how frustrated, frustrated he was during the runup to the war because he couldn't tell the American people how they were being misled. You see, as a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, the poor dear was sworn to secrecy and so he couldn't whistleblow tell the public that the other Dick was lying all over the Sunday morning press shows.

Fuck that. You should have done it, even if you were going to have to serve some time in prison, which I highly doubt would have been the result. You see, Senator, when mayhem and death are on the line, you do the right thing. Sorry, your whiny CYA speech didn't do it for me, sir.

This is what passes for "leadership" these days.

Update: Someday I'm going to work up a post on this whole "secrecy" thing and back up an assertion that it is inherently corrupting and only marginally useful in the business of government. National Security Act? That scam is the worse thing ever to have happened to the republic.
