Memory Pills Needed for Rockefeller Says Roberts

Just as he was coming off the Senate floor from appropriations votes, I caught up with Chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Sen. Pat Roberts (R.-Kans). I asked him if anything prohibited members that were briefed on the NSA wiretapping policies from speaking with each other about their concerns. He said, "of members that were briefed, no." Then, he thought carefully and added, "We’ve contacted the pharmaceutical companies–they have memory pills for seniors and we’re trying to get a memory pill for those who attended the briefings because they’re having some amnesia and sort of a selective memory loss. There was always time for questions, always time for any point of view and Senator Rockefeller was always in the end result very supportive.”
