Trent Lott: Keystone Cops
This morning, Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-TN) and House Speaker J. Dennis Hastert (R-IL) wrote a letter to intelligence committee chairmen about the recent leak of information to the Washington Post about secret CIA detention centers in Europe.
As was reported earlier, Lott told Ed Henry that he thinks it was republicans that leaked it. Frist said that he didn't sign the letter earlier, but it looks like he did now. This saga is like one of those old silent movies. The likely scenario will be that the republicans will say they are so principled that they will investigate even their own on this one. Time for the keystone cops to go to a couple of ethics classes too.
