Courage Under Fire

You probably won't get this easily in the news unless you watch C-SPAN late, but you may have previously heard about several military officers who had worked in a special unit in an intelligence agency before 911. They had blown the whistle saying info was available on the key bad guy prior to 911 - which could have prevented the whole thing. But by telling the truth, their lives have been made miserable by intel bureaucrats, with trumped up UCMJ charges to shut them up - until some members of Congress stepped in today. This one is about to hit the fan, but I'm glad someone is sticking up for these guys who risked a lot to tell the truth.

That someone is Rep. Curt Weldon (R) PA who is risking his own skin with the administration because it's the right thing to do. We'll see what happens.

UPDATE: Click here for Rep. Weldon's remarks in the House yesterday.
