FNC reported that Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid invoked a little-used rule to put the Senate into closed session to talk about information on the intelligence used to justify the Iraq invasion of 2003. Both Bill Frist and Trent Lott were on, harrumphing that this was Reid’s stunt and a great affront to them personally.
Reid is not likely to have done this without some new information. We have had an unconfirmed report — I repeat, unconfirmed, not second-sourced or even explained — that something has been found in Iraq that dispels previous misconceptions. Whatever that means. Stay tuned. Reid has chosen to go ugly early. And there may be lots to come. Stay tuned.
