Specter angry about getting snubbed by Cheney.


In a three-page letter to Cheney, Specter complained about the Vice President’s unwillingness to cooperate on NSA eavesdropping oversight. “I was surprised, to say the least, that you sought to influence, really determine, the action of the Committee without calling me first. … This was especially perplexing since we both attended the Republican Senators caucus lunch yesterday and I walked directly in front of you on at least two occasions en route from the buffet to my table.”
