FINDING MEMO – There it is:



What is truth, asked Pontius Pilate once, a long time ago. Well, this is one version of it, from the Republican members of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. The Democrat members have theirs, and hopefully it will be declassified and released soon too. Having read the much discussed and anticipated document it seems it has been talked up too much by both the right, as a treasure trove of damning revelations, and by the left, as an armageddon for the intelligence and investigative agencies. It’s neither, though after having spent weeks arguing how damaging it would be to publish the memo, the Democrats and the media cannot credibly downplay it as nothing much now. The story is murky and the saga continues.
