An Inconvenient Truth

So here’s the big scandal Nancy Pelosi is going to try and use to deflect attention away from… whatever stupid thing it was she said a few weeks back:

The CIA ran a secret program for nearly eight years that aspired to kill top al-Qaeda leaders with specially trained assassins, but the agency declined to tell Congress because the initiative never came close to bringing Osama bin Laden and his deputies into U.S. cross hairs, U.S. intelligence and congressional officials said yesterday.

What’s the fuss? If the CIA reported to Congress every time they failed at something, they wouldn’t have enough time left over to screw up.
