Saturday Drive By: Frist Threatens to Molest Intelligence Committee

Bill Frist appears to be trying to block the Senate Intelligence Committee's investigation of the NSA spy program.

From Glen Greenwald at Unclaimed Territory:
With the March 7 vote looming on Sen. Rockefeller’s motion for the Committee to finally hold hearings to investigate the scope and nature of the Administration’s NSA warrantless eavesdropping on American citizens -- and with several Committee Republicans indicating their intent to vote for hearings -- Majority Leader Bill Frist threatened the Committee yesterday and warned it not to hold any hearings.

Read the whole thing at Glen's site. This appears to be a story the MSM hasn’t picked up yet.
