Robert Novak describes how the Democrats have latched onto Director of National Intelligence, Admiral Mike McConnell, as their scapegoat for their political failure to stop the administration's demand for reform of our wiretapping laws. There is some debate of what McConnell said to the Democrats when he met alone with them in discussing a Democratic plan. They said he supported it and then reneged on his agreement under pressure. McConnell denies this and says that now he won't go to any meeting alone with Democrats unless there is a Republican there to serve as a witness to what was actually said.
What a sad state of affairs when, what is supposed to be a nonpartisan office, is now subject to the slings and arrows of partisan attacks.
General Petraeus will be next. Count on it.
