General Petraeus and I had a very informative half-hour discussion yesterday, which included the assessment of the situation in Iraq that he will share with other House Members today. I appreciated his report and his responses to my questions on security and political issues in Iraq. We share a conviction that the war in Iraq will not be resolved militarily, and I look forward to future reports from him on the effects of President Bush’s escalation plan. ( my emphasis )

Having postponed debate on the subpoena for former White House Chief of Staff Andrew Card regarding the leaking of covert CIA Agent Valerie Plame’s identity pending negotiations with White House Counsel Fred Fielding, and having cancelled the subpoena vote for documents regarding White House dealings with MZM in light of new White House responsiveness, the Oversight Committee today approved three subpoenas. Two were for emails and documents from the RNC regarding White House records and improper political use of federal agencies and one was for testimony from Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice regarding the claim that Iraq was seeking uranium from Niger. Both subpoenas come after repeated formal requests to which the RNC has been largely unresponsive and to which Secretary Rice has been completely unresponsive.

   Maybe the house should consider sending in the military and dragging Condi Rice out by her ankles!
