My money is on the little soldier filing a motion for dismissal because of the new information concerning the President involvement in the leak case and being the person who leaked the NIE. But, the knucklehead needs re-read his actual charges. Duh??

Have a good evening. Signing off!

Fitz,

The little soldier is filing dismissal as SPB said. Judge Walton is going have a serious headache on these motions going nowhere. Case Law stands when charge with a criminal defense you must be tried the court system/peers until GW changes the law I guarentee you that your phone will ring and Lubby will ask for plea bargain.

No Bluewild their still sleep back just us West coast people. I wonder what Fitz will put on here tomorrow as he filed an amendment Wednesday. Libby is blaming everybody for everything now. Maybe he should go back to the old plan of lost memory. Have a nice night I'll be back in the morning.
Oh is anybody else confused with the letter thing. I just hope I get big letters if not I always have to do it again.

So the key juzgement of the NIE leaked was the identity of Valerie Wilson Plame,isn't it?

I am reporting about this and other matters in spanish, as my country mass media is reporting it as manipulated as in the USA.

Another question.. are the abramoff/franklin/aipac spying and Leakgate related?

i guess they do, but i would like to hear you thoughs.

April 13 (Bloomberg) -- A former top administration official said President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney authorized him to discuss with reporters intelligence on Iraq's weapons program and didn't authorize leaking a CIA agent's name.

Former Cheney chief of staff I. Lewis ``Scooter'' Libby, in documents filed late last night in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, said Bush and Cheney only authorized him to disclose once-classified details from a National Intelligence Estimate paper that they believed supported the president's claims that Iraq was attempting to buy nuclear material in Niger.

So what's the bottom line here?...Judith Miller brought her crystal ball to breakfast? That's how
she got the name, written on her notes
from that meeting?

And if someone was passing out crystall balls, does this mean that Novak (Robert) was given one as well?

SPB...am I missing something here?

Libby's lawyers: Prosecutors withholding information

Thursday, April 13, 2006; Posted: 8:51 a.m. EDT (12:51 GMT)

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Attorneys for I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, the indicted former aide to Vice President Dick Cheney, are accusing federal
prosecutors of withholding information needed to provide their client with a thorough defense.

In documents filed Wednesday, Libby's attorneys said prosecutors can't "have it both ways" by claiming that issues in the perjury case pertain only to Libby while broadening the case by offering details about the disclosure of parts of the classified National Intelligence Estimate.

Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening Folks!

Happy Thursday!

Teak: Wanted to let you know that Waterflake had posted my lastest article on her website. She also wrriten a wonderful article about the CIA case and the timeline. So, check it out!

Grandmunk:

Don't worry about the little soldier's new filing. He is just trying to filing a dismissal of his case since he spilled the beans on the Gerbil. Libby thinks that because the focus is shifted to the President in leaking NIE information, Libby feels that he is exonorated from being the actual leaker in this case. From Washington Post: "But the lawyers asserted that White House documents outlining what Libby was to say in conversations with reporters did not mention Plame's name. They said this supports Libby's contention that he did not participate in a campaign to damage Wilson by disclosing Plame's CIA employment or in a coverup of the episode." The little soldier is now claiming that Bush and Cheney did not authorized him to leak Plame's identity and he wasn't a participant in this WH conspiracy. You have to go back and understand what Libby is charged with. Libby is just trying to outsmart Fitzgerald. Remember, Libby is a lawyer too. No matter how you cut the cake in this case, Libby and The Gerbil and company were involved indirectly and/or directly in a WH conspiracy to discredit Joe Wilson in leaking his wife's identity, giving classified information to the reporter, leaking an active covert's name, giving false information to the American people on WMD, invading another country on false pretenses, etc. I should say the entire Administration should be charged with the murders of all of the soldiers and beheading of the reporters because they are responsible for put them in harms way on false pretenses!

Congressman accused of using staff to baby-sit

Wednesday, April 12, 2006; Posted: 10:07 p.m. EDT (02:07 GMT)

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Two former staff members of U.S. Rep. John Conyers Jr., D-Michigan, say the longtime Detroit congressman made them baby-sit his children, run errands and work on political campaigns while they were on his congressional payroll.

Sydney Rooks, whom Conyers hired as a legal adviser in his Detroit office, recalls the lawmaker brought his two young sons into her office several times, saying, "Rooks, they're your responsibility for right now. I'll be back later."

ran's hard-line President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad vowed Thursday that Iran won't back away from uranium enrichment and said the world must treat Iran as a nuclear power. the comments were made as Mohamed ElBaradei, head of the International Atomic Energy Agency, arrived in Tehran for talks aimed at defusing tensions over Iran's nuclear program.

"Our answer to those who are angry about Iran achieving the full nuclear fuel cycle is just one phrase. We say: Be angry at us and die of this anger," the official Islamic Republic News Agency quoted Ahmadinejad as saying.

April 12 (Bloomberg) -- Iran, defying United Nations Security Council demands to halt its nuclear program, may be capable of making a nuclear bomb within 16 days, a U.S. State Department official said.

Iran will move to ``industrial scale'' uranium enrichment involving 54,000 centrifuges at its Natanz plant, the Associated Press quoted deputy nuclear chief Mohammad Saeedi as telling state-run television today.

``Using those 50,000 centrifuges they could produce enough highly enriched uranium for a nuclear weapon in 16 days,'' Stephen Rademaker, U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for International Security and Nonproliferation, told reporters today in Moscow.

Rumsfeld Rebuked By Retired Generals
Ex-Iraq Commander Calls for Resignation

By Thomas E. Ricks
Washington Post Staff Writer
Thursday, April 13, 2006; A01



The retired commander of key forces in Iraq called yesterday for Donald H. Rumsfeld to step down, joining several other former top military commanders who have harshly criticized the defense secretary's authoritarian style for making the military's job more difficult.

"I think we need a fresh start" at the top of the Pentagon, retired Army Maj. Gen. John Batiste, who commanded the 1st Infantry Division in Iraq in 2004-2005, said in an interview. "We need leadership up there that respects the military as they expect the military to respect them. And that leadership needs to understand teamwork."

Batiste noted that many of his peers feel the same way. "It speaks volumes that guys like me are speaking out from retirement about the leadership climate in the Department of Defense," he said earlier yesterday on CNN.

Batiste's comments resonate especially within the Army: It is widely known there that he was offered a promotion to three-star rank to return to Iraq and be the No. 2 U.S. military officer there but he declined because he no longer wished to serve under Rumsfeld. Also, before going to Iraq, he worked at the highest level of the Pentagon, serving as the senior military assistant to Paul D. Wolfowitz, then the deputy secretary of defense.

Batiste said he believes that the administration's handling of the Iraq war has violated fundamental military principles, such as unity of command and unity of effort. In other interviews, Batiste has said he thinks the violation of another military principle -- ensuring there are enough forces -- helped create the Abu Ghraib abuse scandal by putting too much responsibility on incompetent officers and undertrained troops.

His comments follow similar recent high-profile attacks on Rumsfeld by three other retired flag officers, amid indications that many of their peers feel the same way.

6 miles and all:

I just read Firedoglake but I read Christy's response to the corrective filing from Fitz which cause a stir with bloggers and the media. Here is an excerpt from Christy:


Libby Case Update — A Correction and A New Filing

"As a result, something as routine as a correction filing from Fitz on the wording on his last Response has caused a huge stir — because the tiniest of details is scrutinized so carefully in the media and on the blogs." A lot of people made a big deal from Fitz's new filing.

"Now, to those of us who have been obsessed with this case since the investigation began, this has some meaning. But I can guarantee you that if you tried to explain the significance of this to someone who hasn’t paid attention to the case, you are simply going to get some eyes glazing over and a "huh?" (I know, I’ve tried, even with legal beagles — unless they are political junkies, they don’t seem to see a huge difference.)" Yup, and she right about that!

"But there is a difference in terms of the significance in the NIE — the key judgments have a higher level of importance than the rest of the document. I think the explanation on this from Eriposte at LeftCoaster lays out the details on this best — so please take a read. The bottom line for me — the political implications are essentially the same for the Administration in terms of public opinion, its a difference of degree of importance placed on the particular piece of evidence, but nothing is changed with regard to the selective declassification and cherry-picking of only those bits which supported the Administration’s position, the secretive leaking to the friendly Judy Miller, and the keeping of critical pieces of information behind a classified wall until 10+ days later." And she is right. Nothing has changed. The evidence is the importance!

Folks,

This leak is turning into a WH conspiracy with all the major players being exposed for the Gerbil's hidden agenda. From Raw Story, Larisa reports:

On Cheney, Rumsfeld order, US outsourcing special ops, intelligence to Iraq terror group, intelligence officials say
Larisa Alexandrovna

"The Pentagon is bypassing official US intelligence channels and turning to a dangerous and unruly cast of characters in order to create strife in Iran in preparation for any possible attack, former and current intelligence officials say."

http://www.rawstory.com/news/2006/US_outsourcing_special_operations_intelligence_gathering_0413.html

As I say, a hidden agenda to attack Iran: oil and money!

Well so much for Rep. Conyers and ethicthical behavior if his ex-staffers are to believed. And...

...And Rep. Alan Mollohan, a West Virginia Democrat, faces accusations of funneling taxpayer money to nonprofit organizations he helped create -- and which support him with campaign contributions.

The Wall Street Journal and the New York Times last week published stories about Mollohan's questionable behavior; and in an editorial this week, the New York Times singled out Mollohan as something of a test case for corruption-fighting Democrats.

The New York Times noted that Mollohan, the ranking Democrat on the House ethics panel, "has emerged as the latest example of the sort of shady dealings that have sent Congress plummeting in the public's estimation."

If Democrats want to claim the mantle of corruption fighters, the newspaper said, "they had better force Representative Mollohan to quit the panel."

SPB--Well done on the article again. Let me know when your next installment is done, please.

It is unbelievable on Larissa's latest article and she is rarely wrong either. Many things goes through one's head, what else has this group,MEK, being used for in Iraq at this time? Cheney and Rumsfeld are just goading Iran into a war...and you are right greed and oil ---it sure is not for democracy. That would begin at home.

Hi Biloxi,

That's an interesing article from rawstory.

So Wolfi had already Iran in mind after marching into Iraq. Another domino strategy than just like Korea and Nam same thing all over again.

And using a renegade terror organisation who will eventually go dark on them? How stupid if they think they could control them!

Teak,

I will let you know when the article. Right row, it is in the works.

Waterflake,

Interesting article? I am telling you more and more damaging information are coming out about the corrupted Gerbil Administration. It is hard to keep up with these crooks. As mention before, The Gerbil had a hidden agenda from the moment that beady eye creature stole and crawled into the Oval office as President 6 years ago. But, each person meaning Rummy, Cheney, Rove, etc. all had hidden agendas of their own but those agendas as well as Bush's agenda served only one purpose: oil, money, and power! Unfortunately, the American people are hit with all of this negative and devastating information about this corrupted Administration all at once!

An excerpt from Raw Story of the leak case:

"In particular, they (Libby's lawyers) say they want to scrutinize former undersecretary of state Marc Grossman, who testified that he told Libby that Wilson's wife worked at the CIA. Libby testified that he remembered no such conversation. The filing also mentions White House political adviser Karl Rove and former White House press secretary Ari Fleischer."
