Biden Scolds Rice for Ignoring Requests about Bolton

8 May 2005 at 6:27:16 PM

Sen Lugar, the other day, told Rice that she could ignore Biden's requests for information, which didn't sit well with Sen Biden.

Saturday, Sen Biden

scolded Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice on Saturday, saying she ignored Democratic requests for additional information about the nominee.

In a curt letter to Rice, Sen. Joseph Biden, D-Del., reiterated his requests for State Department documents related to charges that Bolton tried to bend or ignore government intelligence findings that did not suit his conservative ideology.

The Senate Foreign Relations Committee is scheduled to vote on his nomination on Thursday. Biden repeated a warning to Rice that Democrats could hold up the vote if they are not satisfied they have investigated Bolton fully.

Biden acknowledged that the State Department sent the GOP-led committee a large number of documents from Bolton's four-year tenure as the department's arms control chief. But the documents answered only requests from the committee's Republican chairman and ignored what Democrats wanted to see, Biden wrote.

"In particular, the unfulfilled portions of the request relate to the nominee's reported efforts, in speeches and testimony, to make statements that went far beyond what the intelligence would support," Biden wrote

The Republicans on the committee have a duty, not to Bush, but to the American people. They need to stop thwarting the investigation into the suitability of Bolton to be UN Ambaassador, only in order to bow down to Bush. Bolton is simply not qualified.
