Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

No Left Turns

None dare call it diplomacy

Bill Bennett raises the appropriate questions regarding Senator Jay Rockefeller’s 2002 tour the the Middle East, when he apparently told the Saudis, Jordanians, and Syrians that President Bush "had already made up his mind to go to war against Iraq." Here’s Bennett:

This is not a prewar intelligence mistake, it is a prewar intelligence giveaway.


Syria is not only on the list of state sponsors of terrorism and the country many speculate is where Hussein has secreted weapons, it is also the country from which terrorists are flowing into Iraq to fight our troops and allies. Jordan and Saudi Arabia have had, over the years, conflicted loyalties. What was Senator Rockefeller doing? What was he thinking? And all this before President Bush even made a public speech about Iraq — to the U.N. or anyone else.

There’s more, all of it worth reading. And Senator Rockefeller has some explaining to do.

Hat tip: Power Line.
