Interacting With Young Minds...

at Northern Illinois University was a pleasure. I especially enjoyed sharing the message with law students that once they pay off their student loans public service can be a higher calling with intangible rewards money just can't buy.

Fitz Reveals Little In Public Appearance

Very good, and how cool is that to be a law student and get a talk from the world's best prosecutor? Talk about inspiring.

If you come to OSU, can you make some room for bloggers? (do you want to come-I may be able to arrange it;-)

Just make sure those indictments come down first-so we can ask about them!

Fitz:

Hopefully, there will be many young law students that will follow your lead. Bringing truth and justice to America.

Fitz, you are a shining example for those young minds! :)

Fitz,

Great to hear you talking to the young people. They truly are the hope of the world.

And they need to see the positive examples for public service rather than the awful things they see about the political arena.

I read Christy's article about your speech at college. Let me know if you ever come to Southern California to talk I have about a thousand questions I know not about any pending cases. Your one of the great expamles of what the legal system represents. With your help we know there are others who fight for Justice.

Now, if only, Patrick, that you can give a talk about professionalism to the White House! Maybe, they can learn something. Very good article and from Firedoglake. Of, course, the law students and professors were going to attempt to ask questions of the CIA Leak case. I wasn't surprised. The old saying: Lead by an example and the rest will follow. Well ,you are showing a very good example of integrity as an attorney and as a person for future law students to follow your footsteps!

Great work Fitzgerald!

I'm that age too and would love to see you speak at some of our colleges out here, Utah that is.

I have always wanted to know what its like to try criminal cases.

It must be very hard but rewarding work. I do whatever I can to clean up corruption, and I stand by and turn lawbreakers into whoever I can think of!

But I don't know the first thing about how a trial works, and that speech was teriffic very informative!

Now we just need this trial to be over with, the Grand Jury needs to work hard and all indictments released. Then you and everyone can wrap the case up.

I wonder if some of these neocons are going to have to be dragged out, because I learned from my friend in Florida they don't respond to anyones rules.

The ICC had to come in and drag them out of office in Gitmo, the DHS etc, because they had gone totally insane and wouldn't leave.

Dangerous fanatics the neocons are, what when many of them grew up in Israel!

All,

More from the lastest article Jason Leopold. Very interesting points:

Jason Leopold:
Bush and Cheney Discussed
Plame Prior to Leak

"In early June 2003, Vice President Dick Cheney met with President Bush and told him that CIA officer Valerie Plame Wilson was the wife of Iraq war critic Joseph Wilson and that she was responsible for sending him on a fact-finding mission to Niger to check out reports about Iraq's attempt to purchase uranium from the African country, according to current and former White House officials and attorneys close to the investigation to determine who revealed Plame-Wilson's undercover status to the media."

Now, what is interesting are the players in the meeting: "Other White House officials who also attended the meeting with Cheney and President Bush included former White House Chief of Staff Andrew Card, then-National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice, her former deputy Stephen Hadley, and Deputy White House Chief of Staff Karl Rove." Condi,mmmmm?

There's more: "The attorneys and officials close to the case said over the weekend that the hastily arranged meeting was called by Cheney to "brief the president" on Wilson's increasing public criticism about the White House's use of the Niger intelligence and the negative impact it would eventually have on the administration's credibility if the public and Congress found out it was true, the sources said."

Let's not forget, Bob Woodward's role in this case:"Woodward told Libby shortly after he received the information about the NIE that he would not be writing a story about it for the Post but that he would use the still classified information for the book he was writing at the time, Plan of Attack.
Woodward would not return calls for comment nor would Libby's attorneys Ted Wells and William Jeffress." All about his book and Woodward knew that this was classified information!

Finally, Libby's relationship to Judy Miller:" Libby told Cheney that he had a good relationship with New York Times reporter Judith Miller and that he intended to share the NIE with her. Libby met with Miller on July 8, 2003 and disclosed the portion of the NIE that dealt with Iraq and Niger to her."
Good relationship, huh? Little soldier, don't you mean good bed partners??? Happy reading!

Pay off student loans? Based on a few recent grads I've talked to, that won't be anytime soon.

Someone's got to pay for this war. Based on Bush priorities, it's students, poor people and those in disaster areas.

Blogger Jackie said...

That's a good point Kit. With college cost so high and little high paying jobs for those grads it will be hard to repay loans. Bush has even taken away the Pell grants. Fitz things have changed in the Education Dept. Some college cost is as much as buying a house. We Americans need to rethink what's happening with education.

Just exactly how did Judith Miller win that Pulitzer anyhow?
Libby and Miller in bed is a real disgusting image!

Blogger Special Prosecutor Biloxi said...

According to articles about Miller, Miller is known for sleeping with her sources. Surely, the little soldier and Ms, Miller certainly were not having bible studies together! Yes, it is sick thought with those two. But, that is the name of the game to get what you want. Ms. Miller certainly lost her integrity as a reporter!

Blogger Special Prosecutor Biloxi said...

BTW: In early 2002, Miller got a Pulitzer Prize for Explanatory Reporting profiling "the global terrorism network and the threats it posed." And Ms. Miller surely didn't get the Pulitzer prize for shagging Libby!

I wonder how her career is going now that Fitzgerald has exposed her as the phony she is?

Also has anyone heard what happened to Viveka Novak?

2:02 PM  
Anonymous Anonymous said...

Yes just what DID happen on the Times Vivecka Novak?

I think she finally flipped on her boss.

Its time for some Rove, Hadley indictments and conspiracy charge...

Conspiracy to commit pre-meditated murder, as that is what it amounts to when you deliberately/accidentally out the CIA.

But you can't say that in court- not strong enough and these guys are stupid. What you can say, is conspiracy.

Yes SPB that is disgusting, the little soldier certainly never got out much.

Hes way way out far past the melly when you consider the sick things he did, or that book by little soldier!

Blogger Special Prosecutor Biloxi said...

I certainly won't comments on the little soldier's bizarre book: The Apprentice. But, it shows you looks are deceiving! Someone ask Vivca Novak and Judt Miller whereabouts?

1. Ms. Novak took a leave of absence from Time magazine toward the end of 2005. She probable laying low for a while.

2. And Dear Judy: Here is her website:
http://www.judithmiller.org/
She writes for The Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press

Biloxi speaking of which Little Soldier's friend Ken Lay is being grilled to pieces at the ENRON trial!!!


http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20060410/ap_on_bi_ge/enron_trial

""It's almost inconceivable now what happened," he said.

Earlier, prosecutor John Hueston continued pressing former general counsel Jim Derrick on Monday to highlight Enron's cursory response to August 2001 memos from Sherron Watkins, then an Enron vice president, who warned Lay about possibly shady accounting related to financial structures backed by the company's stock. The note, which won Watkins fame when released by Congress the next year, came days after Skilling unexpectedly resigned as chief executive officer.

The crumbling structures were unwound in the third quarter, forcing Enron to report hundreds of millions of dollars in losses.

Last week, Derrick in part served as a lead-in to Skilling. Through him, Skilling's lawyers sought to counter prosecution testimony that he failed to approve deals Enron conducted with partnerships run by former Chief Financial Officer Andrew Fastow, as required. Derrick testified that Enron's board approved procedures that required the review and approval of former Chief Accounting Officer Richard Causey and former Chief Risk Officer Rick Buy, but not Skilling.

Fastow testified earlier in the trial that he used the partnerships, with Skilling's knowledge, in part to help Enron manufacture earnings.

Lay and Skilling are accused of repeatedly lying to investors and employees about Enron's financial health when they allegedly knew fraudulent accounting propped up weak business ventures. The two men say there was no fraud at Enron other than that committed by Fastow and a few others, who skimmed millions from secret schemes, and that bad publicity coupled with lost market confidence drove the company to seek bankruptcy protection in December 2001.

Skilling is charged with 28 counts of fraud, conspiracy, insider trading and lying to auditors, while Lay faces six counts of fraud and conspiracy.

Skilling, 52, has maintained his innocence of any wrongdoing since the initial, explosive aftermath of Enron's swift flameout.

In lengthy testimony with
Securities and Exchange Commission shortly after the bankruptcy filing, and two contentious appearances at congressional hearings in February 2002, Skilling said he knew of no accounting tricks to hide debt or inflate profits. He also insisted he believed Enron was financially strong when he abruptly resigned in mid-August 2001, citing personal reasons. "

Skilling and Lay are toast, and so is the soldier.
