Briefly Noted

U.S. Intelligence Questioned

"I think it's legitimate for me to question all of our intelligence information, because I never learned anything from those briefings that I hadn't learned in the newspapers. If they don't know anything more than they're telling us, what's the use of having an intelligence agency, and why bother to brief us?" —Iowa Republican senator Charles Grassley, February 4, 2004
