Wolf Blitzer had on Rep. Peter Hoekstra (R-MI02), Ranking Member on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, and Rep. Jane Harman (D-CA36), of the House Committee on Homeland Security, to discuss the troubling and selective leaking of classified information coming from the White House about Israel's bomb attack in Northern Syria of alleged nuclear facilities, prompting Hoekstra and Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (also a Republican) of a scathing rebuke in the Wall Street Journal (subscription req'd.)

You know when a Republican like Hoekstra is blasting you for leaking information that all is not well in the Republican party...but how pathetic is it that Harman only knew about it from what she read in the media?

Blitzer: Can you tell us, Congressman Hoekstra, if there was evidence that the Syrians were working with North Korea and/or Iran, were actually in the process at that facility of trying to build a nuclear bomb?

Hoekstra: Wolf, I can't get into any of the details that we've been briefed in on. You know, that's why this spot declassification that the administration is going through is so troublesome. They can leak bits and pieces of the program. Those of us who have been briefed on the program, we can't say anything about what we know or when we knew it.

Rats are jumping, Mr. Cheney...
