RUSH: There was an event on Capitol Hill yesterday, just give you an idea. Do you know how many hearings, by the way, the Congress, House and Senate combined have had on oil and energy this year? Do you know how many hearings there have been with the Big Oil execs and without, just exploratory hearings? They’ve had 40 hearings on oil and energy, and has anything happened? Yes, the price has continued to go up. Do you know how many hearings they have had on whether or not the United States tortures detainees? They’ve had over 60 in the House and Senate combined, over 60 House and Senate hearing, and there was another one yesterday. It was the Constitution civil rights and civil liberties subcommittee of the House Judiciary Committee. Massachusetts representative Bill Delahunt was questioning David Addington. David Addington is chief of staff, former counsel to Vice President Cheney. Addington, a very private guy, does not show up in public. He was forced to show up at this hearing. They asked him the typical stupid questions, and he just stuck it to these guys by not bending over forwards and grabbing the ankles like Republicans usually do or anybody else does when they face a congressional committee. This did not sit well with Bill Delahunt, who said this.

DELAHUNT: Oh, I can understand why he [the president] doesn’t talk about it.

ADDINGTON: But you gotta communicate with Al-Qaeda. If you do — I can’t talk to you. Al-Qaeda may watch C-SPAN.

DELAHUNT: Right. Well, I’m — I’m sure they are watching, and I’m glad they finally have a chance to — to see you, Mr. Addington, give —

ADDINGTON: I’m sure you’re pleased.

RUSH: You need me to translate this for you? Delahunt said, ‘Oh, I can understand why the president doesn’t talk about it.’ Addington, ‘you gotta communicate with Al-Qaeda. If you do, I can’t talk to you, Al-Qaeda may watch C-SPAN.’ I can’t tell you what we’re doing about Al-Qaeda. Not here. Delahunt says, ‘Yeah, well, I’m sure Al-Qaeda is watching, and I’m glad they finally have a chance to see you, Mr. Addington.’ A number of people have inferred from this that Delahunt would not be disappointed if Al-Qaeda took Addington out now that they know who he is. Delahunt has said, ‘I didn’t say ‘they.’ I didn’t say finally they had a chance to see you, I said finally I’ve had a chance to see you.’ Okay, let’s see if that’s what he said. Let’s listen to this again, now.

DELAHUNT: Oh, I can understand why he [the president] doesn’t talk about it.

ADDINGTON: But you gotta communicate with Al-Qaeda. If you do — I can’t talk to you. Al-Qaeda may watch C-SPAN.

DELAHUNT: Right. Well, I’m — I’m sure they are watching, and I’m glad they finally have a chance to — to see you, Mr. Addington, give —

ADDINGTON: I’m sure you’re pleased.

RUSH: Did you hear him say, I? No, he said they, twice. And these, ladies and gentlemen, your modern-day liberal Democrats in the Democrat Party.
