Daily Kos: BUSH Kept Intelligence from Congress

on Oct 5,2001,
W pulled security clearance from 92 of 100 senators.
thus the US senate didn't have access to all the
intelligence with which to make a determination
to go to war.

Simply put, Bush Limited Access and Disclosures of Classified Information to only 8 Members of Congress per a policy memo [last blockquote below] written and signed on October 5, 2001.

Therefore, Congress could not possibly have had access to the same intelligence information that the White House had! Period. Exclamation Point!

I was toolin' around the internet, and came across a blog post by Faiz on 7/26/05 over at Think Progress 10/5/01: Bush Pulls Security Clearances From 92 Senators

Faiz' blog is terrific, and focuses on the hypocrisy of Bush and the security clearance of Karl Rove, but is just as relevant to what Congress had access to where intelligence information was concerned.
