Paul Wolfowitz, according to Reuters, told senators that while the Pentagon was supposed to be iaginative, "it sounds like maybe they got too imaginative." (Gee, ya think?)
Sen. John Warner (R-VA) was quoted as saying it was a plan that "might not be a good idea at this time." After meeting with Warner, Anthony Tether of DARPA declared the terror futures market "finished."
Sen. Pat Roberts of Kansas (R-KS) said "I think they are way off base and somebody should bear that responsibility."
The program came under the auspices of Bush crony John Poindexter, the formerly convicted (technically acquitted) felon of Contragate and "Total Information Awareness" infamy; but Tether said he saw no reason why Poindexter's would be the head to roll.
He's right. By this time next week, the Bush League will probably have found a way to make the whole thing go away, or better yet, blame it on Bill Clinton.
