More highlights from Rep. Pete Hoekstra (R-MI) address [1] on FISA at Heritage today:

As President Bush has been trying to focus the country on the threat from radical jihadists, Senate and House Democrats demonstrated they had a different focus when they mandated in the 2008 Intelligence Authorization that U.S. intelligence agencies craft an intelligence assessment of climate change. Before the President’s Day recess, the House Intelligence Committee sent staff to the CIA to see how it is analyzing the environment. Given the Democratic leadership’s lack of focus on the threat from radical jihadists, is it really a surprise they are pressing the CIA to study global warming?
