Do the people that write these things believe we are such dimwits that capitalizing a meaningless adjective and noun will convince us they really have a plan? Apparently.
This might have been the prelude for, minimally, some explanation why the Speaker doesn't not believe that an impeachment inquiry would help end the war. But this announcement of "non-impeachment" isn't the prelude to anything -- no suggestion how the Democratic majority that Pelosi leads DOES intend to end the war. They aren't even trying -- they just continue to whine about George W. Bush.
Instead the letter jumps immediately to "Congressional Oversight".
I would have been more impressed by this suggestion if I didn't know that in the last few days Pelosi (and her comrade in capitulation Rahm Emanuel of the DCCC) had stopped Rep. John Conyers from issuing subpoenas to stonewalling Bushies, Josh Bolten and Harriet Miers. The "leadership" apparently fears any confrontation with the White House "at this time." Without persistent legal pressure, there will be no oversight. Bush appointees will continue to lie to and thumb their noses at the "overseers."
Apparently there's something in the inside the Beltway air that leads to lying to people. I like better what we are hearing from Pelosi's neighboring Congressperson to the north, Rep. Lynn Woolsey. She has another idea.
Madame Speaker isn't going to like that suggestion. I imagine Woolsey, a genuine war opponent and co-chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, got some heat on that one.
