Warrantless Spying, Unwarranted Inquiry

Well, it looks like Rove's threat proved a little too substantial for Senate Republicans:
The Senate Intelligence Committee decided today not to investigate President Bush's domestic surveillance program, at least for the time being.

"I believe that such an investigation is currently unwarranted and would be detrimental to this highly classified program," Senator Pat Roberts, Republican of Kansas and chairman of the panel.
Did Roberts just use the word, unwarranted?

And let's not forget that it was the same said Roberts who whitewashed the senate panel investigation into the Iraq "intelligence failures" by placing all the blame on the CIA, while he also scuttled any further investigation into what the White House's role was in the sordid affair.

Nice work, Pat. Looks like you'll be getting a little chocolate on your pillow tonight. Oh, and bunches of money from the Rove campaign machine.

At this point I think there is really only one question left to ask Roberts: how much more mewling and servile can you possibly get? Are there any craven depths yet unplumbed?
