  •  They have classified briefings (12+ / 0-)

    on issues like this. The most recent one of which, as we know, McCain skipped in order to throw a tantrum instead. But I am quite sure there were other briefings previous to that--when something that dramatic happens they keep lawmakers in the loop. BUT, classified briefings are not meant to be public, usually for good reasons. These people (McCain, Issa) are ABUSING their positions. I wonder if Issa could be arrested? I am pretty horrified.

    I love it that Obama's channeling Harry Truman: "I don't give 'em hell; I just tell the truth and they think it's hell!"

    •  It's very cynical, what they're doing... (6+ / 0-)

      and all the while waving the flag around, yelling patriot! patriot!

      You'd think that by the time a man got to be McCain's age, he'd be able to comport himself with a little more dignity.
