Now he tells us.....

As debate rages in Washington about pulling out of Iraq there is also an investigation underway by the Democrat-dominated Congress how the US got into the mess in the first place. Now, obviously, politicking is at play here, but slowly, ever so slowly, bits and pieces are emerging about how the White House patently lied about the existence of WMD's in Iraq and a host of other related matters.

Now The Washington Times has this rather startling revelation:

"The Senate's No. 2 Democrat says he knew that the American public was being misled into the Iraq war but remained silent because he was sworn to secrecy as a member of the intelligence committee.

"The information we had in the intelligence committee was not the same information being given to the American people. I couldn't believe it," Majority Whip Richard J. Durbin, Illinois Democrat, said Wednesday when talking on the Senate floor about the run-up to the Iraq war in 2002.

"I was angry about it. [But] frankly, I couldn't do much about it because, in the intelligence committee, we are sworn to secrecy. We can't walk outside the door and say the statement made yesterday by the White House is in direct contradiction to classified information that is being given to this Congress."

"Wake Up"

The message is loud and clear....and as you watch this, remember that it was on Israeli TV - not some anti-semitic or anti-Israel program somewhere in the world.
