Pelosi is scum and Reyes is her exited little lapdog.

When the people in El Paso finally realize what a crooked Mexican politician he is, it will be too late. You will all whine and cry, but you have been buying his bull and eating his scraps for most of the twenty years I have lived here. The only place in America Reyes would not be an embarrassment to his district is El f'ing Paso!

I DARE CONGRESSMAN REYES TO RUN HIS INVESTIGAION. The CIA did not significantly change it's postions during the transition from the Clinton Administration to the Bush Administration including the Director of Central Intelligence remaining in his position. I believe this is nothing but Leon Panetta (sp?) being politically pressured to cover Nancy Pelosi from having to answer for her CIA Lied to me foible.

Most of the intelligence used leading up to the Iraqi invasion was developed during the Clinton Administration.

This STINKS to high heaven, Congressman Reyes represent your District and stop going to bat for the Party in Washington when it is bad for your home.
Cap and Trade for example is going to be VERY BAD for El Paso County and Far West Texas, are you all ready for your Electric Bill to go up by half or more, well Congressman Reyes voted for the bill.
Solar will be great for El Paso, when it is cheap enoug to use. I don't care how much sun we get, when it costs more to make electricity from solar than what El Paso Electric currently uses it isn't time. El PAso is one of the poorest regions in the country, but apparenly our Congress,an thinks we have cash laying around to pay a surcharge to Washington when we pay for our utlities. You represent TX-16 not the Washigton Democrats, EVEN CIRO VOTED AGAINST IT.

CIA, CAP and TRADE, how will Congressman Reyes vote on Healthcare? You think a single payer plan is best? Wait until you need a specialist, or a expensive treatment. I hope you aren't in a hurry.
COngress Reyes represted himself a an indenpendent thinker who would do his best for the El Paso are when he beat Rick Ledesma, instead he's the Speakers' lapdog has been every since he arrived and it sickens me!

Stand up Congressman, to quote Sen. John Kerry, "speak truth to power".

As Chairman of the Intelligence Committee Reyes is an idiot, he will through the CIA under the bus for his Political ambitions and his Democratic Party. The Obama Administration has polarizing the CIA since the Demigod took office. If we cannot trust the battlefield intelligence and the intelligence provided by the field agents then this Nation is in a world of hurt. The Office of Strategic Services (OSS) was a United States intelligence agency formed during World War II. It was the wartime intelligence agency, and it was the predecessor of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA); was instrumental in our victory the Axis Powers, but in our Politically Correct world, we lost the ability to get the INTEL need to secure this Nation. It does not matter how we get the INTEL from the bag guys as long as it supports combat operations. Waterboarding is nothing to the methods being used on our POWs, they mutilate our guys. In the field the word is do not capture, kill; because Obama will put them back in the battlefield

Challenging the CIA is the worst thing you can do. This is politcs to distract the country of what is going on. Pelosi just blocked the Audit the Fed Bill, which would give trasparency to the Fed? Why? We got CAP AND TRADE and National Health Care to worry about. While this story is important, don't lose sight of what is really going on

He's such an idiot. He just goes along with whoever he thinks has more pull and power. He's not a leader, he's a coward and follower. I can't believe people vote for him.

However it was quite okay for Bush to admit that he had received "bad information" from the CIA regarding the WMD's That have yet to be found in Iraq.

Bush 1 was director of the CIA prior to his election and could probably tell line for line how to lie to the incumbent administration to make them look ignorant.
I for one do not doubt the truth is that Torture was used at Guantanamo and other SECRET CIA prisons. They admitted there were more places than just Gitmo but only the ones in Germany were given locations. The CIA is a group of agents who lie and scheme to get information about our enemies and our allies. It is not in their character to tell the truth.

So you stand here to refute the old "Bush lied, people died" libel?

Just so you know, the facts that there were stockpiles of WMDs in Iraq and a thriving WMD research and development program were considered settled matters prior to the invasion. Even the UN inspectors generally presumed that what they knew about, and were inspecting and inventorying, was only the beginning.

During the first year or two after the invasion, interrogations of one of the scientists produced an admission that they had actually developed an elaborate system of hoax WMD capabilities (falsified progress reports, faked demonstrations, and dummy stockpiles)to deceive Saddam Hussein himself regarding the lack of progress in their actual programs.

Thought you might like to know...
