Dear Senator Feinstein:

At last some honesty! I applaud you for questioning the Obama administration's characterization of what happened in Egypt as not a coup. As you said, if walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it must be a duck.

I dont think you are going to get any attention from this President until you challenge him with a potential coup of your own - by asking why he should not be impeached for treason.

I sincerely hope that Steve Jobs was not helped over the edge so as to bring Apple into the list of "cooperating" companies.

I sincerely hope that the Chief Justice was not threatened to allow Obamacare.

If any of these happened, we have experienced a coup of our own. At the very least I think you should haul Jay Carney and Chuck Hagel into the Senate and ask them to explain why the events in Egypt should not be characterized as a coup. You are a Senator, and also the Chair of the Intelligence Committee - it is your right, and your duty, to ask such questions. Having this come from a member of the Democratic party should make it clear that such behaviour is unacceptable, - even if the challenge ultimately goes nowhere.
