The Letter’s in the Mail?

A couple of weeks ago, Sen. Jim Webb (D. Va) asked Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice if it was the administration’s position that President Bush had the power to take military action against Iran without permission from Congress. She demurred, promising a written answer once she was able to gain “a rather more clear understanding of what we are actually talking about.”

Apparently getting tired of checking his mailbox for her promised response, Sen. Webb has written a letter to Secretary Rice to nudge her along.

I do like that man’s backbone.

Thanks to Waldo Jaquith for bringing this to light.
