Congress and intelligence

The headline says Congress has passed an intelligence bill.
It's about time!
Congress has long shown a complete disregard for intelligence. Congress has, in fact, shown no intelligence for many years.
Congress is in desperate need of some intelligence.
Perhaps most of its members might not be accurately described as stupid, but they sure do frequently act as if they are.
I mean, for example, passing bills they haven't read.
Then out in public, asked about a certain measure, they have to say, "Well, golleee, we didn't know that was in there."
Lacking intelligence?
