Libby’s Trial Crafted to Protect Bush-Cheney Gang (tags)
Instead of going after the cabal that lied the country into the Iraqi War, Special Counsel, Patrick J. Fitzgerald, focused on only one defendant, Irving “Scooter” Libby. He also made sure no conspiracy count was utilized in the indictment against him. V.P. Dick Cheney will not testify at Libby’s trial. Fitzgerald, who has close ties to Rudy Giuliani, will continue to make sure that nothing comes out to hurt the interests of the Bush-Cheney Gang.
HOT BREAKING NEWS: Poison Gate Update Now Linked to Plame Gate (tags)
Alexander Litvinenko, the poisoned Russian spy, has now been directly linked to the Chechnya-Mudjahadeen which of course is allied with Al Qaeda. It can now be reported that the U.S. FBI has tied Litvinenko to the sale of nuclear material to the government of Israel through Zurich, Switzerland. The bagman for all this is none other than Marc Rich. Litvinenko, with ties to Chechnya and elements of the Russian Israeli Organized Crime Teams was an important individual. His death is not to be dismissed. It can now be reported that Litvinenko was...
HOT HOT INTEL: Plame-Gate Won't Go Away (tags)
Mark Grossman former Under-Secretary of State under Colin Powell, takes center stage in the Valerie Plame leak case. Yes Extortion-Friendly U.S. Media. The case has not gone away. It can now be reported that another FBI sting has been underway for sometime linking Grossman and his relationship with noted Iran-Contra Arms Dealer Riarif Durrani (a Pakistani Intelligence Officer), to the events surrounding the outing of Valerie Plame and her covered status.
BREAKING: The Big Media Lie Exposed Again: Woodward Gate #3 (tags)
Sources close to the the US Justice Dept. confirm Richard Armitage only passed the name of covered CIA Agent Valerie Plame to a noted journalist.
Armitage is the Leaker, not the Story: Black Ops and War Lies (tags)
The corporate media have focused on the outing of Plame but are ignoring the real story: why was the administration so focused and intent upon destroying Plame and her ambassador husband? The answer leads to a dark crime of lies and black ops aimed at promoting a pointless war in Iraq at all costs.
BREAKING INTEL: WOODWARDGATE #1 AND #2 (tags)
Bob Novak on NBC Meet The Press fingers Bob Woodward as Valerie Plame leaker. Without mentioning Woodward's name Novak says Colin Powell called Richard Armitage about the leak story at which point Armitage became distressed. AND Summation: The Bush Clinton Box Gang is desperately out to protect their media asset Bob Book & Snake Woodward of the Washington Post.

Digging Deeper: Why No Conspiracy Count for Libby? (tags)
The pre-Iraqi War intelligence was “fixed around the policy,” according to the Downing St. Memos. The perjury case of Irving “Scooter” Libby, Dick Cheney’s gofer, is only one small piece of the scheme to lie the country into war. Special Counsel Fitzgerald failed to use a conspiracy count against Libby, but he didn’t hesitate to do so in the Khaled Dumeisi case. Why the double standard? The Congress must get to the bottom of this cover-up.
Judith Miller's Strange Voluntary 85-Day Lock-Up (tags)
She went into jail a hero of sorts but it turns out she knew she didn’t have to go. She’d been free all along to reveal her source and her conversations with him. So why did Judith Miller want to be behind bars so bad?
Karl Rove Getting Leaked On--By Grand Jury (tags)
President Bush now says he will fire for convictions, not mere leaks. The consensus of lawyers is that Karl Rove will be indicted in the Valerie Plame outing case -- and not for what you think. Special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald appears to have a slam-dunk case under Title 18, Sec. 641, USC (which is NOT about outing a covert agent) just as the DOJ did for leaker Jonathan Randel, who got a year in prison. Karl Rove was abandoned by both of his parents -- the man he called Dad left home, Rove found out "Dad" wasn't his father after all (his aunt and uncle "outed" this at the dinner table), and his mother committed suicide.

Whose ass is Judith Miller protecting: Her source's or her own? (tags)
Is Judith Miller, now in jail on a contempt charge for refusing to name her sources in the Valerie Plame outing case, a muckraking journalistic hero, or was she a journalistic poseur who was helping the White House slime whistleblower Joe Wilson? --------------
REVEALED--KARL ROVE'S SECRET JAIL DEFENSE (tags)
He blew CIA agent Valerie Plame's cover. Here's how he's going to cover that: HE WILL SAY: "ALL I TOLD REPORTERS IS THAT JOE WILSON'S WIFE RECOMMENDED HIM" (to check on the phony Saddam-Nigeria-uranium connection). We are at war, declared by the president. Karl Rove, if he makes the above admission, caused the deaths of CIA operatives and compromised their expressed mission in the defense of the nation in that war. That would make him not just a felon but liable to prosecution for T-R-E-A-S-O-N (imagine Tammy Wynette or Aretha Franklin singing that out).
Bush Fires Rove! (tags)
It is a federal crime to disclose the identity of an undercover CIA agent. “The White House's credibility is at issue here, and I believe very clearly Karl Rove ought to be fired,” said Massachusetts Senator John Kerry.
Leaked name of CIA officer has Bush seeking legal advice (tags)
Abney couldn't explain why Bush had talked to an outside attorney, but it is a violation of federal law to reveal the name of a CIA operative.
The Treasonous Lies of Bob Novak and Karl Rove (tags)
I watched "Meet the Press" on Sunday (Oct 5), a show that more accurately should be called the "Tim Russert Kiss-ass Hour" (or TRKA - which, appropriately, sounds like the title of one of the more knuckle-dragging species of college fraternities). The show's sole purpose for being is to allow Bush administration officials and other darlings of the rightwing to drop by for coffee-and-camera time each Sunday morning and present their slanted version of the latest outrage they have committed on America while Russert smiles, nods and simpers.
Not a Leak, Treason (tags)
Spin is All, and in the Plame Affair Bush still has the upper hand since reporters allow him to characterize this as "leaking classified information," like the specs for a bolt on an F-15 fighter.
The Intimidation of Ambassador Wilson and Ms. Plame and 76 Days. (tags)
Considering it was the corporate media that published Bob Novak's column that outed Ms. Plame as a "CIA operative" in order to punish and intimidate her husband, Ambassador Joseph C. Wilson for not playing ball with the Bush regime, how can anybody expect the corporate media to now report objectively about a conspiracy the corporate media participated in.
The Most Insidious of Traitors (tags)
The Bush administration pushed very hard the idea that America is in danger from WMDs being placed into the hands of terrorists. This was one of the central arguments behind the war in Iraq. Yet in order to protect Bush's political standing, a couple of "administration officials" blew Valerie Plame, and by proxy her network, completely out of the water in an attempt to shut her husband up. In short, in order to protect Bush from the ramifications of using fake evidence to support his war, this White House destroyed an intelligence network that was protecting us from the threat posed by chemical, biological, and nuclear weapons.
