Fitz,

I went to give a big briefing one time and discovered I had the pants from one navy pin striped suit on and the coat from another.

Luckily they were close enough that no one noticed.

But it certainly brought home the comment that my wife had whenever I got a new suit - "Oh no, not another dark pin stripe suit!! You need to get some variety in your wardrobe!!"

Have a great day and don't worry about the color of your socks.

And this administration thinks that we
should just "trust us" with the NSA spying? They're divulging NSE's to advance a political agenda and they truly want us to believe they aren't using the spying to go after anyone that displeases or threatens THEM. We
are truly not that nuts.

The National Opinion Research Center at the University of Chicago, sponsored by a consortium of major U.S. news organizations, conducted a Florida Ballot Project comprehensive review of all ballots uncounted (by machine) in the Florida 2000 presidential election, both undervotes and overvotes, with the main research aim being to report how different ballot layouts correlate with voter mistakes.

The recount also showed that the only way that Al Gore could have tallied more votes is by using counting methods that were never requested, and which included "overvotes" — spoiled ballots in which more than one candidate is selected for one office. These overvoted ballots are viewed as irretrievably spoiled by all responsible election officials, but the recount attempt to discern "voter intent" by examining them anyway. These results would also only be valid if the media representatives viewed the ballots in the same manner as the voting officials would have.

grandmanuk, are you just making a conjecture or do you have any evidence to what you are accusing the Administration of doing? I was just rebuked this morning for being basically a "kool aide" drinker for the Republican party and not relying on facts, but using the propaganda from the GOP. Well, I haven't read of one incident where a private citizen has been abused by the NSA policy of eavesdropping on know Terrorist in or outside of this country. Personally I would call for the neglect of duty of the President if he didn't authorize the NSA to monitor known Terrorist. Please enlighten us as to the examples you are privy to where an innocent citizen has been abused by this policy.

Bush authorized leak of Iraq intelligence estimate, indicted ex-Cheney aide says

RAW STORY
Published: Thursday April 6, 2006

A former White House aide under indictment for obstructing a leak probe, I. Lewis Libby, testified to a grand jury that he gave information from a closely-guarded "National Intelligence Estimate" on Iraq to a New York Times reporter in 2003 with the specific permission of President Bush, according to a new court filing from the special prosecutor in the case, THE NEW YORK SUN reports Thursday.

Libby Says Bush Authorized Leaks
By Murray Waas, National Journal

Thursday, April 6, 2006

Vice President Dick Cheney's former chief of staff has testified that President Bush authorized him to disclose the contents of a highly classified intelligence assessment to the media to defend the Bush administration's decision to go to war with Iraq, according to papers filed in federal court on Tuesday by Patrick J. Fitzgerald, the special prosecutor in the CIA leak case.

I don't think anyone will notice Fitz if you have a different pair of socks. As long as your pants cover the socks and you don't tell anyone at your office!

Folks,

Yes I heard about the little soldier was given permission by the Gerbil to leak the CIA name.

Excerpts from Thinkprogress.org:

"Libby claims he first "rebuffed" Vice President Cheney's suggestion to release the information because it was confidential. But, according to the New York Sun, "Cheney specifically got permission for the release directly from Mr. Bush." The prosecution filing said, "Defendant testified that the vice president later advised him that the president had authorized defendant to disclose the relevant portions of the NIE [National Intelligence Estimate containing Plame's identity]."

This case surely is interesting. First, the little soldier says Chaney authorized him to leak the name and now it is Bush. But, then the NY Sun says that Cheney got permission from Bush. This is sounding like Albert and Costello, "who's on first" theme? The little soldier is playing the blame game again!

Before his indictment, I. Lewis Libby testified to the grand jury investigating the CIA leak that Cheney told him to pass on information and that it was Bush who authorized the disclosure, the court papers say. According to the documents, the authorization led to the July 8, 2003, conversation between Libby and New York Times reporter Judith Miller.

There was no indication in the filing that either Bush or Cheney authorized Libby to disclose Valerie Plame's CIA identity.

But the disclosure in documents filed Wednesday means that the president and the vice president put Libby in play as a secret provider of information to reporters about prewar intelligence on Iraq.

Changes ordered to Pentagon database
By LOLITA C. BALDOR
Apr 6, 2006

As many as 260 reports in a classified Defense Department database on suspicious people or activities were improperly collected or kept there, the Pentagon said Wednesday in a review that also found the system to be a valuable tool in terrorism investigations.
The review was ordered last December after reports that the database collected information on anti-war groups and U.S. citizens prompting members of Congress and others to raise questions about possible domestic spying.

Pentagon spokesman Bryan Whitman said there are about 13,000 entries in the database, and that less than 2 percent either were wrongly added or were not purged later when they were determined not to be real threats.

Pentagon officials wouldn't discuss details of the classified database, including what specifically the improper entries contained.

Deputy Defense Secretary Gordon England, in a memo dated March 30 and released Wednesday, called the program productive and said it "has detected international terrorist interest in specific military bases and has led to and supported counterterrorism investigations."

England also noted, however, that the system should only be used to report information about "possible international terrorist activity." And he said that to insure the program is working properly, he ordered an annual review of the system, and set up a working group to examine how well Pentagon agencies are coordinating their collection and use of the data.

Known as TALON or the Threat and Local Observation Notice the system was developed by the Air Force in the aftermath of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks as a way to collect information about possible terrorist threats.

The TALON reports collected by a wide array of Defense Department agencies including law enforcement, intelligence, counterintelligence and security are then compiled in a large database and analyzed by an obscure Pentagon agency, the Counterintelligence Field Activity. CIFA is a three-year old outfit whose size and budget are classified as secret.

The review, said Whitman, "confirmed that the TALON reporting system is important and that it should be used to report information regarding possible international terrorist activity."

Whitman said some people using the database may have considered it a way to collect more general threat information, rather than data on "suspicious activity linked to possible international terrorists."

Whitman said Defense Department personnel who use the database also have gone through a refresher course on what should or should not be included. And, he said, there are new requirements that supervisors must review all the reports before they are submitted to the Counterintelligence Field Activity for entry into the database. Then CIFA must also review them before entering them in the database.

The database was first reported by NBC, which said it included nearly four dozen anti-war meetings or protests, including some that have taken place far from any military installation or recruitment center.

Rumsfeld Challenges Rice on 'Tactical Errors' in Iraq

"Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld said he did not know what Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice was talking about when she said last week that the United States had made thousands of "tactical errors" in handling the war in Iraq, a statement she later said was meant figuratively."

Here is Rummy's answer about Condi:

"Hennen asked Rumsfeld: "Do you agree with that? Have we made thousands of tactical errors? And does that concern you?"
Rumsfeld replied: "I don't know what she was talking about, to be perfectly honest."

More about what Libby said:

But the documents indicate Bush and Cheney set up Libby as a secret source to reporters about prewar intelligence on Iraq.

The papers from Special Counsel Patrick Fitzgerald say Libby had the conversation in which the C-I-A agent's name was leaked after Cheney told him Bush gave the go-ahead "to disclose certain information" from an intelligence report.

Presently, America doesn't have a patriot running the show. Rather, we have a president in name only who, for defending false precepts to go to war, would hurt his country by compromising national security.

The timeline for the leak is particularly interesting, motive-wise.

A unified country is what we need now. Republicans either act to give the House and Senate the teeth to impeach, or lose their seat-at the very least.

In the alternative, Bush might be forced to resign, like the Tricky One.

Workers accused of fudging ’04 recount
Prosecutor says Cuyahoga skirted rules

"After the 2004 presidential election, Cuyahoga County election workers secretly skirted rules designed to make sure all votes were counted correctly, a special prosecutor charges.
While there is no evidence of vote fraud, the prosecutor said their efforts were aimed at avoiding an expensive - and very public - hand recount of all votes cast. Three top county elections officials have been indicted, and Erie County Prosecutor Kevin Baxter says more indictments are possible. "

From a Huffpost blogger:


"If there's a leak out of my administration, I want to know who it is," Bush told reporters at an impromptu news conference during a fund-raising stop in Chicago, Illinois. "If the person has violated law, that person will be taken care of." - G. W. Bush

"I want to know the truth," the president continued. "Leaks of classified information are bad things."


How, oh how will the press secretary spin this one? Expect the "not guilty until proven" spin. So Nixonesque.

The people at the top broke the law including Bush, thats what matters. Cheney will be indicted at the end of the Grand Jury review and that will come as some "shock" then it will all be over, and Bush will be in the hotseat again.
