Round and round

The New York Times > National > White House Has Tightly Restricted Oversight of C.I.A. Detentions:
The White House is maintaining extraordinary restrictions on information about the detention of high-level terror suspects, permitting only a small number of members of Congress to be briefed on how and where the prisoners are being held and interrogated, senior government officials say.

Some Democratic members of Congress say the restrictions are impeding effective oversight of the secret program, which is run by the Central Intelligence Agency and is believed to involve the detention of about three dozen senior Qaeda leaders at secret sites around the world.

My Senator is responsible for oversight of the intelligence activities which have resulted in deaths and loss of my good name as an American. He needs to make a fuss in these secret meetings and in Congress.
