The day of reckoning for Mr. Bush et al is fast approaching. Senator Patrick J. Leahy of Vermont, set to chair the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee when the new Congress convenes in January, has made it clear that the questions being asked by the people of our nation regarding Iraq, torture of detainees, secret prisons and voter fraud, among others, will require some answers beyond those the condescending, evasive, and unchecked executive branch has so far been willing to provide.
Senator Leahy has also made it clear that he would rather not have to issue subpoenas to get the information the congress will be seeking, but that he will put them under oath if the administration refuses to cooperate.
