    A Senate Judiciary Committee held a 14 day hearing following Ruby Ridge.  Results?  In part

    The Subcommittee is […] concerned that, as Marshals investigating the Weaver case learned facts that contradicted information they previously had been provided, they did not adequately integrate their updated knowledge into their overall assessment of who Randy Weaver was or what threat he might pose. If the Marshals made any attempt to assess the credibility of the various people who gave them information about Weaver, they never recorded their assessments. Thus, rather than maintaining the Threat Source Profile as a living document, the Marshals added new reports to an ever-expanding file, and their overall assessment never really changed. These problems rendered it difficult for other law enforcement officials to assess the Weaver case accurately without the benefit of first-hand briefings from persons who had continuing involvement with him.
    Once Randy Weaver was identified as a threat, the Feds ignored contradictory information to build a case that he was a dangerous threat.  The CIA let itself be used to justify the Iraq war.  Does anyone think the CIA would be better at threat assessment than the FBI?

    Even Democrats can be asses. Look at Rahm Emanuel.
