    Talking US government on the brink of internal civil war

    by Joe in DC - 2/12/2006 09:24:00 PM

    From AMERICAblog:

    The news hasn't been very good for the Bush crew these past few weeks. We just learned that while Bush and Cheney are decrying leakers, Scooter fingered Cheney as the key leaker in the CIA leak scandal. You know you're having a bad week when even Brownie looks good compared to the rest of the Bush administration. Now, the "accidental" shooting in Texas. There are more tough times ahead for Team Bush/Cheney, according to Newsweek. More Republicans are turning on Bush and Cheney over the domestic spying scandal:

    This coming week is not going to be any better. The Senate intelligence committee is likely to vote to open an investigation into the NSA's wiretapping program, according to senior congressional aides who declined to be identified discussing sensitive matters. The chairman of the committee, Sen. Pat Roberts of Kansas, will probably follow the White House line and try to keep a lid on the hearings. But three Republicans—Chuck Hagel of Nebraska, Olympia Snowe of Maine and Mike DeWine of Ohio—are expected to join with the Democrats on the committee to vote to demand more information about the secret eavesdropping program from the White House and intelligence agencies.

    But the White House isn't taking this lightly. Cheney's playing tough guy with the Hill. He's rolled them before and he'll roll them again:

    The White House is likely to be defiant. Cheney's chief aide and counsel, David Addington, has advised his bosses that even if the intelligence committee votes to subpoena secret documents from the executive branch, the demand will not be upheld by the courts. Cheney's attitude seems to be: bring it on.

    And, if you bring it on, face the consequences. That's the message Cheney gave this weekend down in Texas. It was vintage Tony Soprano.
    I am from the American CIA and I have a radio in my head. I am going to kill you.

    I think people were stunned by how abruptly W turned on Michael
    "You're doin' a good job there, Brownie" Brown -- it looked like an
    utter failure of command at the top, and Bush tried to pin the blame
    on Brown, and now Brown's methodically proving that he did
    exactly what he was supposed to do (i.e., wait until the
    emergency was over).
