Specter: I don't know. I don't have any basis for knowing because I don't know what the program does.

Isn't that great. Wouldn't he like to know what the program does? To Specter-not knowing what the administration is doing is obviously just fine with him.

That's odd coming from the man behind the "Magic bullet theory." You remember-the one he put forth to explain what happened to JFK during the Warren Commission. One would figure he would like to do a little more investigating on this issue with a past like that.
