The Republicans have turned the House Committee on Governments Reform into the House Unathletic Activities Committee. They wasted nine billable hours on St. Patrick’s Day trying to find out whether steroid-using baseball players would be fined or suspended. That time and money could much better have been spent on government reform of the policies that enabled the Bush administration to kidnap an innocent Canadian citizen at Kennedy Airport and fly him at taxpayer expense to Syria, where he was handed over to Syrian operatives who tortured him for nearly a year. And that is just one of hundreds of cases of similar violations of human rights by our government. Congressional injection inspection is just a distration from real government reform.
