But Sen. Trent Lott, R-Miss., told reporters the information in the Post story was the same as that given to Republican senators in a closed-door briefing by Vice President Dick Cheney last week. "Every word that was said in there went right to the newspaper," he said, and added, "We can't keep our mouths shut."Trent Lott was quoted somewhere, I believe the Washington Post or CNN, as saying "We can not remain silent. We have met the enemy, and it is us."
I hope to find a link for that somewhere.
