Can a USian tell me why this open letter from 88 members of congress to President Bush received little to no news coverage? I only heard about it when it got mentioned in a side-bar on Wikipedia. I tried finding it on Google News and only turned up results in a Cuban publication and Al-Jazeera. In the letter, a bunch of Congressmen challenge Bush on revelations from a recently leaked 2002 memo, as reported in the The Times.

I can understand that maybe these are the most left-wing of those in the US Government, and that they probably write a lot of letters to Bush that don't get answered, but I'd have still expected at least a bit of news coverage. Have I just overlooked it?
