Blast 'em Burn 'em Turn 'em To Toast...

C.R.E.W. fires back with extreme prejudice....

LIE: The email messages between Rep. Foley and a former page have been in CREW’s possession as far back as April.

FACT: CREW received the emails on July 21, 2006 and promptly sent them to the FBI, and no one else, that same day. CREW did not discuss the email messages or their content with anyone else. The only call CREW’s Executive Director Melanie Sloan made regarding the matter was to the Washington FBI agent to whom she sent the emails to confirm receipt of the messages.

LIE: CREW provided the FBI with incomplete information and heavily redacted emails. CREW refused to disclose the page’s name and contact information to the FBI.

FACT: The emails Ms. Sloan sent to the FBI were not edited or redacted in any way. The page’s full name and email address were in the emails, as was the name and email address of the Congressional staffer to whom the page was sending the emails.

LIE: The FBI investigation into Rep. Foley was hampered because CREW refused to comply with the agency’s request for additional information.

FACT: After CREW sent the emails to the FBI, CREW’s only subsequent contact with the Bureau was one telephone call from the special agent to whom CREW had sent the material confirming that the emails were from Rep. Foley. CREW had no further contact with the

According to several government officials, the FBI sent the emails to three squads: a public corruptions squad, a criminal squad and a cyber-squad. After reviewing the matter, the FBI determined that there wasn't enough evidence at the time to suggest any criminal activity and did not move forward with an investigation.

LIE: Fox News’ Sean Hannity said on October 5, 2006 that CREW had “been bragging about [the emails] on its website as early as July 21st.”

FACT: CREW first posted the emails to www.citizensforethics.org on September 29, 2006, one day after ABC News reported them.

LIE: CREW has been working with ABC on the Foley story and was reporter Brian Ross’ source for the emails.

FACT: Ross told The New York Times he received the emails from Republicans. CREW was not involved in the broadcasting of his story. In fact, Ross didn’t even know that CREW had the emails until after he broke the story.

LIE: Rep. Mark Foley resigned from Congress after CREW posted some of his email exchanges with a former page.

FACT: Brian Ross has reported that Foley resigned hours after ABC questioned him about the sexually explicit internet messages.

LIE: The blog Stop Sex Predators is owned and operated by CREW.

FACT: CREW does not own, operate, or have any connection or involvement with the Stop Sex Predators blog. CREW first heard of the blog in media reports after the Foley scandal broke.

LIE: One of CREW’s funders, George Soros, was behind the Foley scandal and has been directing CREW’s involvement in the case.

FACT: George Soros had no knowledge that CREW had the Foley emails, nor does he have any input over CREW's day to day activities. CREW has not discussed the emails with any donors or Democratic operatives, strategists or staffers. All CREW did was send the messages to the FBI. After ABC broke the story, CREW posted the messages to its website.

LIE: Rep. Jack Kingston (R-GA) called CREW a “partisan 527 organization” on the October 8, 2006 edition of Fox News Sunday.

FACT: CREW is a nonpartisan and nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization.

LIE: Melanie Sloan of CREW is dating very special prosecutor Patrick J. Fitzgerald.

FACT: No comment

Fitz!

The Republicans just can't handle that one of their own turned them in. As Brian Ross of ABC said, the information came from a Republican.
The Sad Pathetic Republicans are scrambling for answers, and the only answer is to blame Clinton and the Democrats. John McCain is blaming the Clinton Administration for North Korea and every Republican Senator or Republican Strategist that goes on any talk show blames the Democrats even though they don't have a shred of evidence.

I would argue that the Republican party thinks they have been swift-boated by the Dems. From what I've read it was a Repub staffer that notified ABC news.

So, how does it feel, GOP????...and
I have another issue. How is extremely bad behavior and a cover-up blamed on the Dems? It seems obvious that the GOP enabled this pedophile to continue his bad behavior! The fact that the Democratic member of the Ethics board was never informed, but the
Republican election committe chair was? Yeah, right!

Grrr. They showed this nice lady on tv, she seems to be the only one trying to get something done. (no offense, Mr. Fitz & team--we understand what you battle.)

Hannity's a damn joke and only flaky freaks must listen to him. FOX news and their mixed up labeling with the democrats & republicans just shows what pedophile enablers they are themselves. Probably should be investigated for filth they are hiding. Bill?

Any parent that has ever seen a sicko look at their child with 'that look' will never forget it. The parent will learn to hone their 'red flag' awareness and teach their children to recognize the warnings themselves---no matter who the perp might be.

Thank you, Melanie Sloan- This mom trusts you 100%.

Theodore Roosevelt once said, “Unless a man is honest, we have no right to keep him in public life.” That sentiment is as true today as it was in Roosevelt’s time.

We are fortunate to live in a country where public corruption is the exception, rather than the rule. But we must never relax our efforts against those who betray the public trust.

Public corruption, unfortunately, will never be totally eradicated. But the will of the American people to fight it, so as to preserve our freedoms and protect our democracy, is strong. And the FBI stands committed to working with the citizens of this great country, this great city, and our partners in law enforcement to ensure that public servants serve the public good.

Mueller's words.

A reporter asked the White House press secretary today if there's anything the president thinks he should have done differently with respect to North Korea. "Oh, my goodness," Snow responded. "It's a silly question."

Is Tony Snow serious with that answer? Is he on drugs? What an idiot!!

BAGHDAD, Iraq - A fire broke out at an ammunition depot at a U.S. base in southern Baghdad on Tuesday night, setting off a series of explosions from detonating tank and artillery shells that shook buildings miles away. The U.S. military said there were no immediate reports of casualties.

It was not clear whether the depot at Forward Operating Base Falcon was hit by an attack. The cause of the fire was not immediately known, said Lt. Col, Christopher C. Garver, a military spokesman.

Explosions from detonating tank and artillery ordnance and small-arms ammunition stored at the site went off for hours afterward.

Large flames and smoke rose from the region, and flashes from the blasts and showers of sparks were visible on the horizon visible several miles away in central Baghdad, where the force of the blasts could be felt. The blasts came at time sporadically, at times in rapid succession, lasting into the night. Helicopters were seen in the night sky flying over the area.

The blaze broke out in an ammunition holding area, where material is kept temporarily before distribution to the units at Falcon, said Lt. Col. Jonathan Withington, a spokesman at the base. He said more than three battalions are located at the base but he would not give a specific number of troops.

Sex-pot Couric said nothing on the news.

On the October 9 edition of MSNBC's Scarborough Country, MSNBC political analyst Pat Buchanan, during a discussion about the scandal surrounding former Rep. Mark Foley (R-FL), accused a number of gay staffers and lawmakers associated with the scandal -- including Kirk Fordham, former chief of staff to both Rep. Tom Reynolds (R-NY) and Foley -- of being "this little mafia in there [that] looked upon the pages, I guess, as their -- sort of their personal preserve."

Buchanan added that "it stinks to high heaven what was done. And it stinks to high heaven that it was not exposed."

Fordham has stated that he informed House Speaker J. Dennis Hastert's (R-IL) office of Foley's interaction with underage congressional pages years ago, and another congressional staffer has come forward to corroborate Fordham's account.

(I think I am gonna puke! Their own personal preserve? OMG!! Sick bastards!!)

And you have to ask that question from a press secretary has been simply clueless from the get-go and still waiting on his security clearance card?

And where is GEF? Is he still helping out his new girlfriend, the runaway bride with her bills? Sorry GEF. But, you have to keep her in her lifestyle that she is accustomed to.

Buchanan has from the start of this scandal used it for gay bashing. Every appearance by him gets around eventually to bringing his personal morals into this.

Last week Maureen Dowd told Don Imus how Pat and his brothers used to terrorize her brothers back in their childhood DC neighborhood...some real bad bully meaness. Gonzaga High kids were toughies from my memories then and to be usually best to avoided on the sidewalks.

Pat was also arrested at the age of 17 for knocking out a DC cop cold with one punch. :)

He's kinda "punchy" upstairs imo.

According to White House officials and commission members, Mr. Baker has been talking to President Bush and his national security adviser, Stephen J. Hadley, on a regular basis. Those colleagues say he is unlikely to issue suggestions that the president has not tacitly approved in advance.

“He’s a very loyal Republican, and you won’t see him go against Bush,” said a colleague of Mr. Baker, who asked not to be identified because the study group is keeping a low profile before it formally issues recommendations. “But he feels that the yearning for some responsible way out which would not damage American interests is palpable, and the frustration level is exceedingly high.”

At 76, Mr. Baker still enjoys a reputation as one of Washington’s craftiest bureaucratic operators and as a trusted adviser of the Bush family, which has enlisted his help for some of its deepest crises, including the second President Bush’s effort to win the vote recount in Florida after the 2000 presidential election. Mr. Baker served as White House chief of staff, as well as secretary of state under the first President Bush.

Baker? Oh, there is no conflict of interest there now, no matter how well this bastard tries to hide it. Got oil, Jim? Another one that should have been busted.
