Just when I though Senator Rockefeller would lay low, he opens his trap and more studid things flow forward. During today's hearings with National Intelligence Director John Negroponte, Senator Blabber-Mouth:

"Sen. Jay Rockefeller of West Virginia, the senior Democrat on the panel, told Negroponte it was unacceptable that the White House refused to share information on its warrantless eavesdropping program with anyone except for the chairman and ranking Democrat on the intelligence committee.

“What is unique about this one particular program among all the sensitive programs that justifies keeping this committee in the dark?” he asked.

It was a reference to the National Security Agency’s much-discussed monitoring program. Approved by President Bush, it has allowed the agency to monitor — without warrants — the communications of people inside the country whose calls or e-mails may be linked to al-Qaida.

Up to now, only eight members of Congress have been officially apprised of its existence. Warrantless eavesdropping on U.S. citizens has raised an outcry from Democrats and some Republicans who question whether Bush overstepped his authority.

The Senate Judiciary Committee will examine the program’s legal basis at a Monday hearing featuring testimony from U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales. "

Well Senator. Why should we be telling you anything. You'll just pick up the phone and blab it to the MSM or Syria, Iran....whomever, so long as your "plan" keeps cooking.
