Woe is Lil Dicky Durbin

He knew dat dayy wazzint gittin duh rite info but he cooodint tell nobudddy:

The Senate's No. 2 Democrat says he knew that the American public was being misled into the Iraq war but remained silent because he was sworn to secrecy as a member of the intelligence committee.

"The information we had in the intelligence committee was not the same information being given to the American people. I couldn't believe it," Majority Whip Richard J. Durbin, Illinois Democrat, said Wednesday when talking on the Senate floor about the run-up to the Iraq war in 2002.

"I was angry about it. [But] frankly, I couldn't do much about it because, in the intelligence committee, we are sworn to secrecy. We can't walk outside the door and say the statement made yesterday by the White House is in direct contradiction to classified information that is being given to this Congress."

If what he says were true, what would be the point of Congressional oversight? If he can't go to the Committee chair and bring this to light (at the time five years ago), then our nation is truly broken. My concern is that HE VOTED FOR THE INVASION OF AFGHANISTAN AND IRAQ. If he knew it was A LIE, then why did he vote for it??? Has he no integrity?

Methinks he is being "less than truthful".

Little Dicky Durbin also compared our soldiers to Gulag guards and Gestapo. Was that "calssified" or could he release that info?

I'm feeling another letter coming on, Myra. I need to calm down first.

Your readers are smart - they bring up good points.
