I Just Happened To Be Passing By...

"The presence of Fitzgerald in the area also suggested something major."
Ryan judge huddles with lawyers
AP - "Former Illinois Gov. George Ryan's lawyers huddled with the judge and prosecutors in his corruption trial for three hours Tuesday morning and left court with the topic of the discussion still a mystery."

This has been a bizarre day for sure. First, Ryan leaves the court with a discussion that is mysterious. I think it is the presence of you that got that man scared. Then, you have Skilling in his "I have no recollection" testimony today at the Enron Trial. Now, you have the Gerbil that wins overall the Muzzle award. Let's not forget his "I leaked NIE to show the American people the truth" speech yesterday. The more bizarre these cases with these criminals the more they will fumble and seal their fate!

INTELLIGENCE AUTHORIZATION ACT FOR FISCAL YEAR 2007

Hi all, just found this, scanned it and found this passage in the Minority View Section at the very END of the document. How much more law breaking and violation of civil rights is needed for such concerns to make it to the top section?

We strongly support intercepting the communications of Al Qaeda into and out of the United States. This capability is vital. However, we have become deeply concerned that the Executive Branch is engaging in two violations of law with respect to the NSA program.

First, in failing to brief the entire Committee on the operational details of the Program, the President is violating the National Security Act--which requires that the President shall keep the Committee `currently and fully' informed of all intelligence activities of the United States. Failure to brief the full Committee compromises our oversight and is a violation of law.

Second, eavesdropping on U.S. persons must fully comply with Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA). Nobody has yet persuaded us why FISA, as currently drafted, cannot cover the entire Program. The law is unambiguous--all eavesdropping on Americans in America must comply with FISA.

Fitz,

Why is it that this administraton can ignore the law and not be prosecuted?

If you or I broke the law, we would expect to be indicted. I know that the administration has control of DOJ, but still there are lots of US Attorneys that are honest and capable people.

Is DOJ just washing its hands and waiting for Congress to act?

Waterflake,

Great article you found! I hear you regarding the violation of civil rights. But, when you are the Gerbil and your Daddy paid for everything that you own especially 3 failed business and steal the Presidental elections not once but twice, King Gerbil feels that he can do anything that he wants. But an old saying: a rat sooner or later has to come back to the rat hole. That is what happening to Bush. Yes, we will pay a huge price for this moron President to get elected and reelected and for lie that he told to the American people. But, what goes around come around. Bush prides himself in legacy. He will never have a legacy that he wanted by the time that he is kicked out of office. Pay back is you know what. And his involvement in the leak case will make him a disgraceful President worldly. Bush better hope that the Saudias don't end relationships financially with the Bush family. Daddy Bush may have a heart attack!

Fitz:
You're making them ALL very nervous! Soon they will all be wearing disguises, hoping that you won't recognize them. Bush will be wearing a "The Scarecrow" disguise and Cheney will be disguised as "The Joker"

Grandmanuk,
SPB...Bush will have a legacy - the most hated president in US history.


Not only US history world majority didn't like him from day one. When I'm at the airport, whether it's Athens, London or Frankfurt and he is on one of the TV screens people around look as if the wanne puke and start openenly swearing and discussing.

Also before the second election, most folks I know were sure he had no chance
(people said, it's not the Americans fault when they elected him first time but now they have a chance to set it straight. ...well)

But he did make it and for a couple of days we were in a sort of collective disbeliving state of shock.

Prosecutor in CIA Leak Case Corrects Part of Court Filing

Wednesday, April 12, 2006; A08

The federal prosecutor overseeing the indictment of Vice President Cheney's former chief of staff, I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, yesterday corrected an assertion in an earlier court filing that Libby had misrepresented the significance placed by the CIA on allegations that Iraq attempted to buy uranium from Niger.

Last week, Special Counsel Patrick J. Fitzgerald wrote that, in conversation with former New York Times reporter Judith Miller, Libby described the uranium story as a "key judgment" of the CIA's 2002 National Intelligence Estimate on Iraq, a term of art indicating there was consensus within the intelligence community on that issue. In fact, the alleged effort to buy uranium was not among the estimate's key judgments and was listed further back in the 96-page, classified document.

In a letter to U.S. District Judge Reggie B. Walton, Fitzgerald wrote yesterday that he wanted to "correct" the sentence that dealt with the issue in a filing he submitted last Wednesday. That sentence said Libby "was to tell Miller, among other things, that a key judgment of the NIE held that Iraq was 'vigorously trying to procure' uranium."

Instead, the sentence should have conveyed that Libby was to tell Miller some of the key judgments of the NIE "and that the NIE stated that Iraq was 'vigorously trying to procure' uranium."

Libby is not charged with misportraying or leaking classified information. He was indicted last year for allegedly lying to the FBI and a grand jury about what he said to reporters. The indictment came as part of Fitzgerald's investigation into who leaked to the media the name of covert CIA operative Valerie Plame, whose husband became a public critic of the Bush administration's case for the Iraq war.

Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening Folks!

Happy Wednesday!

I had read late last night Lady Gray powerful comments on the blog. Very well said, Lady Gray. You keep rockin!

Waterflake,

I know that many of the international people were shocked when that Gerbil got reelected back into the Oval again. You all were expected Kerry to get into office. But, the Gerbil and his mastermind, Rove, knew actually how to get Bush back in to office: religion and faith. After 9/11, this country was in an emotional turmoil from the attack. People at that time were looking for faith in this country. So, the architect, Rove, decided to use a blueprint of faith and religion to lure the people in those red states (or mostly religous states) to vote for Bush. And also, with the backing of the Faith-based church. Smart plan as Rove thought and it worked. But, now those same red states that voted for Bush are turning on him big time. Bush had made so many promises to the churches in money and power that he can't live up to those promises that he said to them back in 2004. So, yes, a majority of American people were duped to believing the beans from the President back in 2004. But, the only thing positive out of this is that the international people do like the American people and feel that we are the victims from a corrupted Administration but the international people just hate Bush plain and simple!

waterflake....sorry, had a busy day. The reason he is still in the job of president is because the
"model of democracy" got the maker of the voting machines (Republican)
to hack the system to make him the
person occupying the oval office.
The day is coming that we will all
know that the election (democracy
in action all out there in the mid-east) was rigged. I voted in a district in the state of Michigan for a representative that got EXACTLY the same number of votes that at least five other republican
candidates got in their respective districts - 18,181 votes. OK you know how absolutely PI**SED I am about this as it is personal. The
American public is awakening to their responsibility! Hopefully, it's not too late.
