Clinton Dodges On Cheney's Request

More

Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) asked Secretary of State Hillary Clinton today what she thought of Dick Cheney's request that memos detailing torture-begotten intel be released. She evaded a direct answer as Rohrabacher's questioning time expired--"I believe that we oughtta get to the bottom of this entire matter. I think it's in the best interest of our country, and that is what the president believes, and that's why he has taken the actions he did" (i.e., last week's memo releases), she said. Not that Clinton would have the final say over whether said documents get released, but her response left the door open, as far as what her own opinions are. Clinton said she does not consider Cheney a "reliable source of information," so it's unclear how open she is to entertaining anything he might request, but it's an interesting proposition to consider.
