Roberts May Delay Senate Investigation...Again

Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.) is considering delaying a Senate investigation into the Bush Administration's handling of pre-war intelligence until after the midterm elections.

Where have we heard this story before?

Oh, right. It was in February 2004 when Roberts first delayed the investigation until after the elections that year.

This is unbelievable.

Diogenes' lantern not working again, Seth?

I recently came across this law review article (yes, I'm that desperate to avoid work) on why oversight doesn't work and what to do about it. Food for thought.

Interesting law review article. I didn't make it through all 77 pages, but the idea of political parties undermining a separation of powers seems right on.

I guess it's somewhat ironic that the reason Dems want the investigation to go forward stems, at least in part, from their desire to use it for political gain for the party.

And that just bolsters even more the argument in the law review article--even when the separation of powers "works," it really doesn't.
