Because this is what ‘oversight’ looks and sounds like:
January 29, 2007
The Honorable Condoleezza Rice
Secretary of State
Department of State
2201 C Street, NW
Washington, DC 20520
Dear Secretary Rice:
During your appearance before a Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing on January 11, 2007, I asked you a question pertaining to the administration’s policy regarding possible military action against Iran. I asked, “Is it the position of this administration that it possesses the authority to take unilateral action against Iran, in the absence of a direct threat, without congressional approval?”
At that time you were loath to discuss questions of presidential authority, but you committed to provide a written answer. Since I have not yet received a reply, the purpose of this letter is to reiterate my interest in your response.
This is, basically, a “yes” or “no” question regarding an urgent matter affecting our nation’s foreign policy. Remarks made by members of this administration strongly suggest that the administration wrongly believes that the 2002 joint resolution authorizing use of force in Iraq can be applied in other instances, such as in the case of Iran. I, as well as the American people, would benefit by fully understanding the administration’s unequivocal response.
I would appreciate your expeditious reply and look forward to discussing this issue with you in the near future.
United States Senator
Yeah, yes of fukin’ no Senators. This is it the ‘Final Conflict’ is about to begin and you are all going to be judged on one thing and one thing only:
Did you stand up to George W. Bush’s illegal seizure of power under his ludricous theory of fascist dictatorship in America the unitary executive.
This might be your last chance to earn their respect.
And if you’d like to let Condi-lies-a-lot know that you’d like her to answer Senator Webb’s question? Well…here’s where you can do that…..
