"WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Democrats on Monday demanded that the Senate interview key government officials and exercise subpoena power while examining how the Bush administration used prewar Iraq intelligence in the run-up to the 2003 invasion.Using the administration's treachery for political gain? Okay, if that's the way you want it.
As a bipartisan task force prepared for a week-long series of meetings on the intelligence question, Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid said the administration should be prepared to turn over important documents to the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence.
'Now that the Republicans have agreed to conduct an investigation, the next step is making sure the right questions are answered,' said the Nevada Democrat.
But Republicans accuse their Democratic adversaries of using the Iraq war for political gain by suggesting that President George W. Bush and other administration officials may have misused intelligence to make their case for war."
If the Republicans want to decriminalize politics, they should stop commiting crimes while in office. Otherwise, they should be prepared for the consequences.
