Here's CNN's take on the Downing street memo. Most instructive is this quote:
"After the minutes of the meeting became public, 89 Democratic members of Congress sent a letter to Bush asking for an explanation. The memo "raises troubling new questions regarding the legal justifications for the war, as well as the integrity of your administration," the letter said."
It's difficult to find an analogy for the pathetic bleatings of these Democrats. I think it's somewhat like having a number of lukewarm German opposition politicians during World War II finding out about an additional concentration camp through a secret memo and writing a letter to Hitler saying "This memo raises troubling new questions regarding the legal justifications for the war, as well as the integrity of your administration." (And before anyone flips out at me for using a World War II analogy, I needed a conflict that we all agreed was wrong. Iraq II is not morally equivalent to the Nazi catastrophe.)
Troubling new questions? This memo tells us NOTHING we didn't already know. Spineless Democrats can pretend to be shocked and appalled to help appease their own tortured consciences. The House voted 296-133 approving the war--that's 70%. Where were they then?
