I got this tweet from Sen. Jim DeMint (R) S.C. about an hour ago:

Very troubling. Appears State Dept was not forthcoming with Congress on missile defense talks with Russia.

And he referenced this article in the Washington Times:

Disclosure of the report to The Washington Times comes as Russian President Dmitry Medvedev on Tuesday pressed for a new anti-ballistic missile treaty, warning that a failure to reach an agreement would trigger a new strategic arms race.

The four-page document circulated on Capitol Hill stated that administration officials held four meetings with the Russians and last spring presented a draft Ballistic Missile Defense Cooperation Agreement (BMDCA) to Russian negotiators.

The internal report contradicts congressional testimony by Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates in June denying a missile defense deal was in the works. - Link to story (Washington Times)

Keep your eye on Jim DeMint folks. He's one of the good ones.
