There ain't no danger we can go to far
We start believing now that we can be who we are.

Now I think I’m missing something here. So from whom did Libby hear that Novak would write a story on Wilson’s wife and what’s the implication?

October 2005 Indictment Page 8
21. On or about July 10 or July 11, 2003, LIBBY spoke to a senior official in the White
House (“Official A”) who advised LIBBY of a conversation Official A had earlier that week with columnist Robert Novak in which Wilson’s wife was discussed as a CIA employee involved in Wilson’s trip. LIBBY was advised by Official A that Novak would be writing a story about Wilson’s wife.


http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/11640658/
The affidavit states, "Mr. Libby indisputably knows at least one of Mr. Novak's sources: [redacted] Mr. Libby testified in the grand jury that Rove told Libby that Novak was publishing a column about Wilson's wife before it was ever published."

Happy Friday everybody! Congrats to Fitz on another award for the mantle. This is courtesy of Will Durst.

The 13th Annual "Thank God For These Liquid Squeezebags Because I'm a Comic" Awards
Handing out the hardware for the year's best and worst performances

As you have probably figured out by the alarming lack of hairspray, stretch limousines and $30,000 designer gowns available in your area, awards season is upon us, and while we don't have any red carpets to roll out we do promise that Joan Rivers will have as much to do with this column as Dick Cheney has to do with the truth.
Yes, its that time of the year again when vast groups of entertainment professionals pat themselves on the back to the point where they run the risk of spraining a delicate wrist or two. Millions of people ostensibly watch these oozing moody egos toss cast golden plated statuettes at each other in order to live vicariously through them, but we all know its really to ridicule fashion choices. And here at Worst of Durst Comedy Ltd., having never spied a bandwagon we weren't willing to jump on, it is giddy with self congratulation that we settle in for the most serious and consequential of all the awards ceremonies: the Will Durst "Thank God For These Liquid Squeezebags Because I'm a Comic" Awards.

Set yourself down in a comfortable chair and relax folks. We got your back. And be assured, not a single Brokeback Mountain joke in the bunch.

And speaking of grease, you may want to save some grease for the story about DeLay. What a shame of what he did to the elderly for greed!:

Social Security "fright mail" targeting seniors helped fund GOP leader's trips to UK, Asia

A think tank which raised money by targeting elderly Americans with Social Security scare letters paid for more than $130,000 in travel expenses for the House Republican leader, his wife and his staff, RAW STORY has learned.
The National Center for Public Policy Research, a highly controversial and little-known conservative think tank which has been sending Social Security "fright mail" for years, paid for two posh trips for House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-TX) in 1996 and 2000, each at the cost of at least $64,000.

And more corruption:

Pentagon Intelligence Agency Reviewed for Corruption
http://www.truthout.org/docs_2006/030306J.shtml
Federal investigators are looking into contracts awarded by the Pentagon's newest and fastest-growing intelligence agency, the Counterintelligence Field Activity, which has spent more than $1 billion, mostly for outsourced services, since its establishment in late 2002, according to administration and congressional sources.
Since we are 8 trillion dollars in debt. Last night, I gure that if Bush completes his term, we will be 10 trilion dollars in debt!

Well, these two arricles are not encouraging news to the Americans. Brace yourself fellow bloggers:

1. Bush is out of touch.:

In India, Bush Urges Americans to Welcome Global Competition

"People do lose jobs as a result of globalization and it's painful for those who lose jobs," Mr. Bush said at meeting with young entrepreneurs at Hyderabad's Indian School of Business, one of the premier schools of its kind in India. Nonetheless, the president said, "globalization provides great opportunities."

2. WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. military will continue to pay Iraqi media to publish reports favorable to American forces following an investigation into the controversial practice, the top U.S. general in

Iraq said on Friday.

Waterflake,

This case is more like cloak abd dagger. I believe that those emails and with Fitz's timeline, we will get the answer. I think that a lot fo the puzzle to this mystery lies with the article from truthout.org a couple of weeks ago where it talked about that secret meeting between Libby, Rove, Hadley, and Cheney. Except for Libby, those three men were the mastermind to expose Ms. Wilson's cover. Niw, we need to know who else was part of this revenge on Mr. Wilson: Andrew Card? Scott McCellan? etc. But, that was good observation from you.

E.

Thanks for sharinf=g the info on Cunningham. I am not surprised that he had a part in the Dubai. Anyone that waspart of Bush's circle of friends are in part of Bush's deals.

Hi all,

Here's a juicy one...p

The republicans are scared of w's next move-I scared some today meself-from non-threatning, truthful words from a Military Families Speak Out member.
But they always try to go for the spin. p will have none of that, nor would the other folks -two retired persons and a Rec Center director.
We are obvious threats, haha-they kept putting us off for a meeting. You see, we are all from different orgs, asking our Senators to do a "town hall meeting" at the place and time of their choosing. They haven't taken any bribes-that we know of.
They have new security measures built into to their brand new rebuilt lobby.

God love 'em, since I don't, their attempts to condescend to us will not prevail. We put pressure on those who need to be standing for America.

We told them they really need to get behind the people on these issues...

Top CIA Official Under Investigation (no 3)

March 3, 2006 — A stunning investigation of bribery and corruption in Congress has spread to the CIA, ABC News has learned.

The CIA Inspector General has opened an investigation into the spy agency's executive director, Kyle "Dusty" Foggo, and his connections to two defense contractors accused of bribing a member of Congress and Pentagon officials.

Any predictions on when we will see some more action before Cheney shoots someone else?

The CIA leak case is starting to unraveled. Woodward has a second source besides Libby?

Did Bob Woodward Record Key Plame Case Conversation?

By E&P Staff

Published: March 02, 2006 9:05 PM ET
NEW YORK A filing Thursday at U.S. District Court in the Plame/ CIA leak case suggests that Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward may have tape recorded his fateful conversaton with the so-called "second source"--besides Lewis "Scooter" Libby-- that is now a key part of the case.

Woodward suddenly revealed late last year that he had talked with Libby as well as another unnamed government official about CIA operative Valerie Plame, the wife of former Ambassador Joe Wilson. Earlier, columnist Robert Novak had also said he had an unnamed second source.

Journalistic integrity demands that this email received from Karl Schwarz be published since he was named without his approval.
From: Karl W B Schwarz kwbschwarz2@snet.net
Date: Feb 15, 2006 10:52 AM
Subject: Stew is a liar, so is Tom
To: Lenny Bloom cloak.dagger@gmail.com

Hello Lenny
It has been brought to my attention and I listened this morning to what Stew Webb said about me on your show.

Fact, Israeli Seed Partners was part of the Round 1 financing of Chiaro Networks, Richardson, TX. As of Round 2 and 3 they were long gone.

Fact, that was about three years before I even heard of Chiaro and all we did was evaluate their technology, not exactly being in bed with Mossad or Israeli Seed Capital. The Chiaro routers are the best available and huge capacity, 1.5 petabits per second.

Fact, neither Chiaro nor myself have a damned thing to do with FoxCom, Abramoff or spying on the US Congress. FoxCom is a wireless company, neither Chiaro nor myself have ever been involved in wireless in any way.

That DOT has never existed, does not exist and is a complete fabrication by Stew. It is a complete and total lie.

If you are going to play connect-a-dot with idiots, try staying on the truth and make them provide hard documentation to their allegations. They cannot for it does not exist.

Stew is going to be sued along with the others. They have been doing this since Jan 1 when I started outing Gore and I will continue to out him. On March 1 the world will see GHWB, Clinton, Gore and GWB for what they really are, war criminals.

My attorney are already preparing the lawsuit for defamation, slander and libel since they are using voice and print to repeat their lies.

sincerely

Karl


Let there be peace!

Karl Schwarz is a spook, I don't trust him.

He needs to go on the radio show and say that and defend his reputation there. Stew Webb sometimes gets some facts wrong. He should go on there and discuss this instead of slandering, work this issue out.

If he's lying, Schwarz needs to pay.

Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening folks!

Happy Saturday!

Here is what is happening today in Biloxi news:

1. Bush is punishing anyone that opposes him:

FOCUS | Bush Punishes Representative Who Opposes Dubai Port Deal
http://www.truthout.org/docs_2006/030406X.shtml
Representative Peter T. King's prominent opposition to a proposal to allow a Dubai company to take over some terminal operations at American ports may have earned him some punishment from the Bush administration: He has been grounded.

2. I am glad that there is an investigation into Pat Tillman, ex-NFL player who was killed in Afghanistan:

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The Pentagon has directed the Army to open a criminal investigation into the death of former NFL star Pat Tillman, CNN learned on Saturday.

http://www.cnn.com/2006/US/03/04/tillman/index.html

3. My favorite article. Someone finally blasted Condi Rice: Spike Lee, a well known director:

From NY Daily News:

Firebrand director Spike Lee has found an unlikely new target for his latest spray: the secretary of state.
Says Lee: "I dislike Condoleezza Rice more than [President] Bush. The thing about it is that she's gotten a free ride from black people."

People say, 'She's so successful' and 'Look at her position as a black woman.' She is a black woman who grew up in Birmingham, Ala., and said that she never experienced a day of racism in her life," Lee tells the April issue of Stuff magazine.
"Condi, stop smoking that crack!"
"I know you love your Ferragamo shoes, but come on. While people were drowning in New Orleans, she was going up and down Madison Ave. buying Ferragamo shoes. Then she went to see 'Spamalot.'"
And there you have it from Spike Lee!

4. Bush increases the deficit:

WASHINGTON, March 3 — President Bush's budget would increase the federal deficit by $35 billion this year and by more than $1.2 trillion over the next decade, the Congressional Budget Office reported on Friday

Good morning everybody,

US launches drive to plug leaks

Can anyone tell me why this article feels wrong? More like hypocrisy, I’m sure nobody went to the top dogs and told them to stop leaking information to the press, right?

I agree that classified information needs to be protected but I’m afraid this is more like a public witch hunt and an attempt to intimidate whistleblowers rather than a serious effort to sort out security issues.

waterflake....'ya think?

Blogger waterflake said...

Grandmanuk...I would love to hear other opinions as I said, the article makes me feel uneasy and I try to figure why!

For now I think it's a delicate subject, but just imagine. You work in an agency and you know the whole administration is corrupt, who do you turn to? Your superiors, their superiors, another agency? I think people faced with such a situation justifiably get a bit paranoid and unfortunately there aren’t many prosecutors, like Mr. Fitzgerald, out there willing to pick such fights. I guess in such a case, to many, the press seems like their best option.

If it’s just about passing on info to make some bucks, feel important or get famous, I say bust them and bust them good! But find a way to encourage honest people to come forward and talk to the appropriate authorities if they notice someone within doing unethical things, without having to fear reprisal.

anon at 6:50 and waterflake....I do
not have first hand knowledge of this, but second-hand. Whistleblowers are not given the protection that they should have.
The knowledge I have is not current, but applicable in any event. Political appointees in any
administration move in, make decisions (good or bad) and make believe they are important. What
happens in most cases is that they
cause caos, low morale and depression in many cases. If you are stuck in a job under a politcal
appointee making bad or even worse
decisions, you don't have a lot of back-up. Oops, then there's a new
administration...new learning curve, new mistakes, new low morale
(does it sound like a sewer loup?).
Career personnel are not given the
credibility that often should follow with years of government service. Throw the possibility of
unlawful behavior and....there you
have it...another quagmire!

I think leaking amongst low level staff is rare and could be compared to a mutiny it's only gonne happen if the commanding officers are incompetent, inhuman and not treating their 'man' right.

Leaking amongst top players is simply power play and more disdainfully because it's done for personal benefit.

Bush declares war on freedom of the press -- Using many of the questionable surveillance and monitoring techniques that brought both questions and criticism to his administration, President George W.

Check this out-nothing more than a witch hunt...why aren't Dubya and Gonzo lie detecting the leakers of the Plame incident? Why are they allowed to run illegal spy programs , yet go after those who tell about their illegal activities? Where is the DOJ on this stuff? Do we still have laws that matter? Or can Dubya and Gonzo keep on the tyranny track without being stopped?
Senators Rockefeller and Durbin May Take Polygraph Tests

During the Bush Administration, a nexus of politicians, government workers and members of the news media have worked overtime in leaking classified information. From the secret terrorist prisons to the National Security Agency's super-secret surveillance program, intelligence officials and the Bush Administration have had to watch their counterterrorism efforts neutralized for political reasons.

Special agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation recently interviewed dozens of employees at the CIA, the NSA and other intelligence agencies as part of an intense and wide-reaching investigation. Many employees who possess security clearances at the CIA, FBI, the Justice Department and other agencies received letters from the Justice Department forbidding them from discussing even unclassified intelligence programs.

US plans to 'fight the net' revealed

By Adam Brookes
BBC Pentagon correspondent


A newly declassified document gives a fascinating glimpse into the US military's plans for "information operations" - from psychological operations, to attacks on hostile computer networks.


The document says information is "critical to military success"

Bloggers beware.

As the world turns networked, the Pentagon is calculating the military opportunities that computer networks, wireless technologies and the modern media offer.

From influencing public opinion through new media to designing "computer network attack" weapons, the US military is learning to fight an electronic war.

The declassified document is called "Information Operations Roadmap". It was obtained by the National Security Archive at George Washington University using the Freedom of Information Act.

Officials in the Pentagon wrote it in 2003. The Secretary of Defense, Donald Rumsfeld, signed it.
