Well this is interesting. The AP is reporting that Harry Reid has forced a closed session to discuss the intelligence that led to the Iraq War.
Democrats Force Closed Meeting on Iraq
WASHINGTON - Democrats forced the Republican-controlled Senate into an unusual closed session Tuesday, demanding answers about intelligence that led to the Iraq war. Republicans derided the move as a political stunt.

In a speech on the Senate floor, Democratic leader Harry Reid said the American people and U.S. troops deserved to know the details of how the United States became engaged in the war, particularly in light of the indictment of I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, Vice President Dick Cheney's chief of staff.

Reid demanded the Senate go into closed session. With a second by Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., the public was ordered out of the chamber, the lights were dimmed, senators filed to their seats on the floor and the doors were closed. No vote is required in such circumstances.
The lights were dimmed?? Oooh, how romantic. Or maybe, ewwwww, how icky. Is it a senatorial orgy? God we hope not. And sleep well with that image dancing through your head tonight... just think of Enzi in a thong.

'Scuse me, I think I just threw up in my mouth a little bit.

UPDATE: C&L has the video. The Kossacks have more, including Reid's full statement. ThinkProgress is also offering updates, as usual. Good to see the Senate Dems finally showing some spine. Where ya been?
