Shorter Rockefeller: 'Bush Is Lying'

Senator Rockefeller issued a formal statement this afternoon along with the now-public copy of his 2003 hand written letter to Cheney.

Here is what the ranking senator on the Senate Intelligence Committee says today about the Executive Branch program to spy on Americans at home:
"For the last few days, I have witnessed the President, the Vice President, the Secretary of State, and the Attorney General repeatedly misrepresent the facts.

"The record needs to be set clear that the Administration never afforded members briefed on the program an opportunity to either approve or disapprove the NSA program. The limited members who were told of the program were prohibited by the Administration from sharing any information about it with our colleagues, including other members of the Intelligence Committees."
