Today, Representative Henry Waxman (D-CA.), Chairman of the Oversight and Govt Reform Committee, approved of a subpoena for Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice regarding the claim that Iraq was seeking uranium from Niger and the Republican National Committee (RNC) to provide answers to basic questions about the use of RNC e-mail accounts by White House officials. Things are really getting interesting now!
“The Administrationâ€™s claim that Iraq could pose a nuclear threat was at the center of its case for war. Indeed this assertion was key to the decisions of many Members of Congress, including myself, to support the resolution authorizing the use of force in Iraq. It therefore raised enormously serious questions when Congress and the public learned that there were flaws, not just minor ones but serious flaws, with the intelligence underpinning the Administrationâ€™s nuclear case.â€
