Sec. State Rice served over a pile of Yellowcake

Sec. of State Condoleezza Rice is being served with a light garnish of schradenfreude and a fine sauce of accountability.

And I'll end my career as a joke writer now.

The Washington Post is reporting that the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, Rep. Waxman's committee, has authorized a subpoena to be issued for the Sec. of State to delve even deeper into the origination of the claims that Saddam Hussein was seeking to import yellowcake uranium from Africa to Iraq. [h/t Mr. M of Comments from Left Field]

We know from Josh Marshall and Laura Rosen's excellent reporting that the documentation that supported the claim were absurd forgeries that were laundered through the Italian intelligence agency SISMI. We know that pretty much any intelligence professional who was not blind stinking drunk saw that these documents were cheap forgeries within the first thirty seconds. We know quite a bit and Ms. Rice as National Security Adviser should have known about this too.... The questioning should be interesting. Do you think Sec. Rice's memory will be better or worse than Attorney General Gonzales' memory.
