Know thy enemy

From NewsMax...

Sen. Pat "Leaky" Leahy is leading the push by Senate Democrats to investigate the Bush administration's terrorist surveillance operation, saying over the weekend that the probe should be expanded to include allegations that the National Security Agency gained access to some of the country's main telephone arteries.

"As far as Congressional investigations are concerned," Leahy told the New York Times on Christmas Day, "these new revelations can only multiply and intensify the growing list of questions and concerns about the warrantless surveillance of Americans."

The Vermont Democrat's aggressive posture comes despite his own sorry record on intelligence matters. In 1987, for instance, Leahy he had to resign his post as vice chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee after repeatedly leaking information to the press that compromised U.S. counterterrorism operations and may have killed a key U.S. intelligence asset.

Leahy, apparently, can't decide which side he's on.
