That Was Fast

Dave from Garfield Ridge just noted:

"You know what the most delicious thing about this stunt will be? When members of Congress start leaking the details out of this closed, presumably classified session.
Given how this brouhaha exists solely because of the Plame leak kefluffle, there should be wonderful irony in that."

Well he certainly didn't have to wait very long. From DailyKos:

"Update: Just got word that the Senate Republicans caved. From Reid's office:
'For more than two years we have been seeking this investigation. Finally thru the course of this closed session we were able to get the attention of the majority and lock in (with a timeline) the commitment of the senate intelligence committee to investigate how intelligence was manipulated and manufactured with. Its an investigation we desperately need.'"

That was even faster than I expected. I'm sure the irony is totally lost on my senior Senator.
