Lott spills the beans, Frist and Hastert have egg on their faces

So here's the deal, according to the Times: "A newspaper report that the Central Intelligence Agency had set up secret American prisons in Europe for the interrogation of terrorism suspects drew calls today for investigations into who leaked that information." Republicans don't want an investigation into who knew what and when before the Iraq War, but of course they're all over this. The not-so-dynamic duo of Bill Frist and Hastert even suggested that such a leak "could have long-term and far-reaching damaging and dangerous consequences".

But then Trent Lott emerged from the shadows and revealed that the leaker was likely a Republican senator.

  • I think, for the first time in a while, ol' Trent is having some fun again. He'll break out singing any time now.

  • Let's hope so. As long as "singing" means ratting out his fellow GOPers.
