Senate Democrats Sit Out National Security Debate

The Washington Times reports:

As Republicans patch up their differences over how to handle the terrorism suspects held at U.S. Naval Base Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, they are turning their sights on Democrats in time for the November elections.

Senate Majority Whip Mitch McConnell on Friday took issue with Minority Leader Harry Reid over his comments earlier in the week that Democrats were "on the sidelines watching the catfights" among Republicans on terrorism legislation.

"The minority leader indicated that they were sitting on the sidelines during our internal discussion about how best to craft this proposal," the Kentucky Republican told reporters gathered in his office. "I don't think sitting on the sidelines in the war on terror is a good idea. We have to have as much bipartisan cooperation as possible."

Don't hold your breath.
