Condi gets to go on the hot seat about Iraq

Oh yeah! It was her job to get the intelligence in the run up to Iraq right, and as we know now, she blew it, or even better, let it get fudged. One committee issued a subpoena for Condi, another gave immunity to Gonzales aide, Regent University graduate Monica Goodling.

In rapid succession, congressional committees Wednesday ramped up their investigations of the Bush administration by approving a subpoena for Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and granting immunity to a former key aide to Attorney General Alberto Gonzales.

By 21-10, the House oversight committee voted to issue a subpoena to Rice to compel her story on the Bush administration’s claim, now discredited, that Iraq was seeking uranium from Africa.

…Moments earlier in the committee chamber next door, the House Judiciary Committee voted 32-6 to grant immunity to Monica Goodling, Gonzales’ White House liaison, for her testimony on why the administration fired eight federal prosecutors. The panel also unanimously approved – but did not issue – a subpoena to compel her to appear.

Let’s see, will Condi come down with a case of faulty memory, like Gonzo?
