Silvestre Reyes in 2002

Found on TNR's The Plank: Silvestre Reyes during the October 2002 debate over Iraq:
Every one of us understands that we are a nation of laws, that we lead the world by example, that we have a great respect for process and to protect the rights of everyone. That is why, Mr. Speaker, I reluctantly today rise in opposition against this resolution, because I think that the president has not made a case as to why Iraq and why attack Saddam Hussein. As a member of the Intelligence Committee I have asked consistently the questions to those that have come before us with information, I've said -- I've asked the question of what is the connection between 9/11 and Iraq and Saddam Hussein? None. What is the connection between Iraq and Saddam Hussein and Al Qaeda? Very little, if any.
There were smart guys back then. Reyes is one person I've suggested to be a VP for Obama - Representative from Texas, Hispanic, decorated veteran, head of the House Intelligence Committee.

Talking Points Memo Agrees With Me

Talking Points Memo: by Joshua Micah Marshall December 1, 2006 10:50 AM:
Back in the 1980s, when I was a teenager, and then when I was home from college, I used to listen to a Sunday night radio show called Religion on the Line.... The host of the show was Dennis Prager. Prager was always the most self-satisfied voice on the panel. And always a bit pretentious. But for those of you who know Prager now as hate-ranting whack-job that he's become, I can only say that back then he was or seemed far more sane.
