Now that the real leaker is known he can smile. Now he only has to get out of the charge of obstruction of justic. And look at the other people in the Administration that lied under oath. Why did President wait to tell the truth that he leaked the information as he has the power to leak at will. Even when its about an active CIA agent working undercover in Iran. Gonzo and others will have to answer why they just didn't answer the questions truthfully. Now I guess we can put this behind us as the President can leak and lie and as he is the law case closed. Move on to something else. Or maybe it was those Dems who did this that sounds more like the truth.

I know Fitz that you are going wipe that stupid smirk from the little soldier's face when you convict him on all charges! BTW, from the photo shot, he looks taller than his attorney! I wonder if they have his size for an orange jumpsuit???

Q:And why is this man smiling?
Answer: His pamper was changed and use the right baby wipes!

And if that what the little soldier is thinking, Kit, there goes the seven figure deal! With the strange, bad writing, and bizarre book that he written, The Apprentice, his book would end up at a 99 cent store. And the title of this future seven figure income book: "Thanks to my love and guidance of memory expert: I outed the President and saved money on Geico?"

Isn't Mr. Fitzgerald supposively making an Speaking engagement at Northern Illinois University at 2 PM today.

This cannot be his blog. He cannot post topics for discussion and being at a speaking engagement at the same time.

This....

...represents an act of treason.

When you take out a protector of the peace-like Valery Plame was-you attack your own country.

That, is what the neocons did. And they did so with a vengence and pre-meditation unparalleled in our country's history.

More in the news:

I know that some of the fellow bloggers will have some pretty choice words about this article about DeLay:

Hill newsletter: DeLay invokes Martin Luther King in retirement announcement

"Quoting Martin Luther King. Jr., DeLay said, “Free at last, free at last. Thank God Almighty, I’m free at last.”

http://www.rawstory.com/news/2006/Hill_newsletter_DeLay_invokes_Martin_Luther_0407.html

Now, I don't know about anyone on this blog, but to quote MLK's famous speech when you get caught being a crook? DeLay needs to go back a re-read MLK's speech and understand what that speech meant and what it stood for!

6 miles Fitz has alot more up his sleeve. This is just the beginning of a very big picture. No lawyer tells everything he/she knows to the press. Thats why this little information came out. Law is strange and its how you play it. Most of the time you never see it coming or people start telling on each other. In this case just look what's been happening since Libby got indicted. Do you really think Bush would have admitted that he leaked the name, no. But fear of jail and lost of friendship as its known everyone for themselves it playing out. Look at Abramoff and DeLay no support from their so called friends and now their saving themselves. It's part of Washington games stick with a winner until he/she becomes a loser. Then don't answer their calls.

And Scotty McFelon was grilled by the DC press pool of shark reporters. From Thinkprogress.org:

VIDEO: McClellan Battered On Presidential Leak »
According to the White House, when the President authorized Scooter Libby to leak the classified National Intelligence Estimate (NIE) to reporters – sometime before July 8, 2003 — it was declassified. But on July 18, 2003, Scott McClellan was asked when the NIE was declassified. McClellan said, “It was officially declassified today.”

And now it is declassified??? BTW, check out the video of the press conference from thinkprogress. org. I will look at it later!

...uhm, I think there's a timing problem with that declassification.

...did it become declassified as it became 'common knowledge' thanks to Libby, Novak, et al ...?

Jackie - thanks for keeping me honest. I sure am hopeful there is more up the PJF teams' sleeves.

God Willing.

I read the transcript of the press briefing....Snotty McFelon was grilled by those reporters...why was he trying so hard to hammer the date July 18, 2003? He seemed almost desperate to drill it in their heads.

Sorry, I'm late to the game on some of this and out of the loop abit on some things.

6 miles,

You are a smart cookie! Yes, McFelon says that the documents were declassified on July 18, 2003. Here is where Scotty has a problem: The little soldier leak out Plame's name prior to July 18th. To answer your question: yes, those documents became declassified
to "common knowledge" as you mentioned. The closer that this case starts to unravel the more the Administration wants certain documents declassified or want more authorizations in spying etc. It seems like a pick and choose with the Administration to what documents are classified and declassified.

Switching gears:

Here is the real question of the day. I will leave it to the fellow bloggers for discussion. Did The Gerbil lie to Fitzgerald? Great article from Robert Perry from Truthout.org. Here are excerpts:

Did Bush Lie to Fitzgerald?
By Robert Parry
Consortium News

"Bush even vowed to fire anyone who leaked classified material. "The President has set high standards, the highest of standards, for people in his administration," White House press secretary Scott McClellan said on Sept. 29, 2003. "If anyone in this administration was involved in it, they would no longer be in this administration."
Yet, Bush never disclosed that he himself had a hand in planting information to discredit former Ambassador Joseph Wilson for accusing the administration of having "twisted" the pre-war intelligence to justify invading Iraq.

Despite Bush's deceptive public pronouncements, the more important legal question is what Bush told Fitzgerald when the President submitted to a 70-minute interview - not under oath - on June 24, 2004.
If Bush misled the prosecutor about authorizing Libby to brief a reporter, then Bush himself could be open to charges of making false statements or obstructing justice, potential felonies and possibly impeachable offenses."

Of course he did. Bush is incapable of telling the truth.

Anon,

I agree! And notice that Daddy Bush ain't around these days. Daddy doesn't want his name, reputation, and legacy ruined from his idiot son. Daddy lays up in his bed with a cigar at night and says to himself: "Why do have an idiot as my son?" and " Damn it! I should have named him Buck when he was born!"

He's smiling because he just read this telling bio showing Dubyas extreme win at all costs attitude...an unverified report says that Barb did this so "you don't say anything stupid".

"Even as an adult, George was so out of control that his mother, then the president's wife, removed her eldest son to the opposite end of the table at a state dinner for the Queen of England. Although sober by then, the First Son had introduced himself to the Queen as "the black sheep of the family."

For those of you who mentioned the timing discrepancy between the leak and McClellan's declassification announcement, there are at least 3 potential Administration strategies to look for:
1) they can redefine "timing"
2) they can redefine "discrepancy"
3) Bush can issue an executive order banning dictionaries

Back to the topic at hand, my caption would be "I'm not happy, I just have gas."
