Beyond disappointment.

I am beyond disappointed. This is a travesty. They rejected a proposal to investigate BushCo's illegal and unconstitutional wiretapping
``This committee is basically under control of the White House,'' Rockefeller told reporters after the two-hour meeting today in Washington. ``It's an unprecedented bout of political pressure from the White House.''
Basically, they are making a subcommittee to create oversight (read rubberstamp) of BushCo's illegal and unconstitutional wiretapping.

Update:
According to the Contra Costa Times, four Republican Senators (Mike DeWine of Ohio, Chuck Hagel of Nebraska, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Olympia Snowe of Maine) are circulating legislation that would restrict BushCo's ability to wiretap American citizens without court approval.
