Investigation Fever--Catch It!

The Democrats are already planning some good works, says the NYT. They're going to block Republican efforts to kill the Office of the Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction, the agency charged with assessing the progress of the reconstruction efforts in Iraq, and with identifying corruption associated with those efforts. The findings of this agency have, of course, been consistently less positive than the claims of the administration.

Gosh, what a concept--if we hand over billions of dollars to giant mega-corporations, we should check to see whether they're using it correctly.

Levin's going to assess military contracting in Iraq, Rockefeller's set to investigate the secret prisons...and, of course, Waxman's going to be rolling up his sleeves, too.

You know, it's hard to believe these words are coming out of my keyboard, but: God bless the Democrats.

They really do suck a lot less than those other guys, don't they?

Can it be that the lack of posting on this thread means that everyone agrees that Congress should investigate whose pockets all these billions wound up in?

Personally, for both political and good government reasons, I think this is the first task for a Democratic Congress.
