The days of Condi dismissing the oversight committee are numbered. By my count, there are about 18 left…
Congressman Waxman let it be known today that ignoring him would not make him go away.
On 12 March, 2007, Congressman Waxman reopened an investigation into the
specious allegations of lies about yellowcake Uranium and aluminum centrifuge tubes. At that time, the Congressman sent a letter to Secretary of State Rice that should have made it clear he wants answers (even if she was distracted by thoughts of shoeshopping).
Since 2003,I have written 16 letters to you, either in your capacity as National Security Advisor or Secretary of State.
According to Committee records, you have satisfactorily
responded to only five of those l6 letters. Those five were co-signed by Republicans.
Under the Bush Administration, several agencies followed a policy of not responding to minority party requests.
Although I do not agree with this policy, I presume that you were also following it when you decided not to respond to my requests for information.
I am now renewing my requests as the chairman of the chief oversight committee in the U.S. House of Representatives.
(She blew off that March 12 letter as well.)
So the Congressman sent another along today, and attached a copy of the March 12 letter, and told her she is expected to appear before the committee on 18 April. (.pdf warning)
