Some interesting tidbits from FDL's new thread:

"...here are three things Libby was trying to exclude but won't be excluded:

A portion talking about Hadley in the WH, and he's telling Libby and Cheney they have to declassify the NIE and Libby and Cheney don't say anything to Hadley about already leaking the NIE.

A portion where Libby was questioning the CIA's intelligence–a lot of this is about Tenet falling on his sword.

And finally, a passage from both Cathie Martin's and Libby's testimony, in which it seemed like Martin was being blamed for leaking. She felt like Libby didn't stand up to defend her as not being the one who leaked.

Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening folks!

TGIM!

I combed the blog early this morning and some Anon dork said that my name should be in the potential witness list. LOL! If I were on that list, this case would have never come to court. In fact, more the major players would have been exposed..

Let's hope that the impartial 12 jurors and 4 alternates are picked very soon and the opening statements can start this week.

"All of the cheerleaders for this impending military action need to think, at least for one moment about the following: what will China - and Russia - do if Iran is attacked?"

Haven't you been thinking about that too? Has any of Congress spoken up? Are the neocons , the media, PACs still manipulating Americans & Congress again and everyone will say "we didn't know"?

Well, Fitz and team has gotren more aggressive than ever since Libby team was trying to scurry away jurors who were against the Bush Admainistation's stance on the war in which this is not what this case is about. It gotten very ridiculous with excusing jurors from theit opinions about Bush, Cheney, Iraq, etc. So, I am hoping for impartial jurors to make the final cut.

"It looks like SPB put his tights back on this morning, and he's ready to kick evil-doers butt!"

Yup, indeed.. ;-)

Well now it's show time at the Apollo aka Court room. I read some of the comments about jurors on FDL. Interesting group but I do believe when it comes to memory some still look at it as everyday problem. When the Fitz team break it down to a thinking mans lie this group will understand Libby lied with thought and persistence. I liked the lady who said she doesn't watch TV now that she has a baby. Now she works and has conversations with people so her lack of news isn't all gone to the baby bottle. When some people have security clearances this should be interesting as they learn what some dishonest officials do with their clearances. I wonder why Tony Snow still can't get a clearance? Well sit back and watch and listen as there will be more information in this case then Libby lying for his boss. I do respect Wells for his efforts in dealing with a proven guilty client and doing his best to fit the circle in the square. It can't be done but it's a challenge.

I just read the prior posting of the article from American Thinker. The problem with that newspaper is that they really think that they are thinkers. Man, the person who wrote that article has "stinkin thinkin."

What Fitzgerald or any person's personal life preference is his choice and no one else's business. I thought that was really cheap shot by the writer to mention about Fitz's so called life being a workaholic and married to his job. And what does that has to do with his job and career? And to say that Fitz has some personal grudge against Rich, the man that was pardoned by Clinton and had Libby as an attorney? I don't see anywhere in that article of the amount fof client fee that Libby got from Rich (which Libby denied): 2 million dollars! I think that writer is puuting the cart before the horse when it come to about Fitz's works.. It is a bit annoying. I welcome criticism but certainly not ignorance!

I am truly disappointed in WSJ. But, then again, newspapers' integrity can be brought and paid for. Someone mentioned WSJ and National Journal are two peas in a pod. Let's not forget that Murray Waas is a writer for National Journal too. He does great pieces about the CIA Leak case And he is the opposite of Bryon York. But, not all WSJ and National Journal journalists are asswipes..

American Thinker just has nothing better else to do but write garbage about some personal grudge crapola and judge a book by its cover.

LOL Jackie!

I agree with you that Wells is doing a good job so far.

"She also mentioned that she was once an intern at the National Journalism Center and then an intern at The Washington Times, the conservative newspaper owned by Sun Myung Moon's Unification Church. There were no queries from the judge and lawyers about these connections. Yet might she be a conservative harboring pro-administration inclinations? Though the National Journalism Center has a bland name, it is a rightwing outfit that trains young conservative journalists and finds them jobs. Not all of its graduates are ideologically minded. But the group was launched in part by the American Conservative Union. It has received funding from the Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation and the John M. Olin Foundation, leading conservative foundations."Jurors ought not be blackballed for their political views. But if a National Journalism Center graduate makes it on to the jury, the Libby legal team would have reason to be pleased. Fitzgerald might want to ask her a few more questions."

Jackie,

You made a valid point about Mr. Wells. I think many people are looking at the fact that Libby is guilty and a bad guy and then associate that with his lawyers. Wells, who is a partner for Paul
Weiss, Rifkind, Whatron and Garrison LLP in NY, is a good lawyer and doing his best with a lameduck case and defense. Wells has an impressive resume for high profile cases and top corporation cases. Since Scooter has a weak case, the only thing that Wells and the other attorneys can do for Scooter is to create a reasonable doubt and hope that at least 1 juror will believe Libby.

Update:


The magic number of needed jurors is 36, so that the Government can have 8 peremptory challenges and the defense 12. This will leave 16 jurors, 12 regulars and 4 alternates.

The jury pool has been directed to return at 3:00 pm.

Hi JBers -

I'm glad to hear that the jury selection process moved along this morning. I have to admit that I'm much more excited to hear the opening statements in this trial than I am to hear what President Bush has to say tomorrow.

I liked this from James Joyner's post today:

Prosecutors and the courts should certainly make every reasonable effort to avoid compromising reporter-source confidentiality. In cases where the issue is illegal leaks of classified information to the press, however, the press is obviously going to have to testify. Reporters have an important role in our society and should be protected; they are, however, members of society first.

Joyner - Outside the Beltway Jan 22

Gray day here today.

Hmmm. Interesting pool of jurors:

WASHINGTON - Jurors in the CIA leak trial will be drawn from a pool that includes two men with advanced degrees from MIT, several retirees, an art historian, an opera singer and a number of people who have strong opinions about the Bush administration's war policies.

Hey,

Biloxi's tights are fitting very well..You better worry about Scooter's diaper to see if it cuts off circulation...

Not worried about Libby's diaper. Let Wells and his defense team worry about that.

Do you think that Wells changes his diaper, or do you think that his wife does that nasty little duty?

"Do you think that Wells changes his diaper, or do you think that his wife does that nasty little duty?"

Ha Ha! LOL! You are too much.. It's probably Wells and the rest of the team that clean, wipe, and pat Scotter's ass. After all, little Irve is paying them big bucks. And since Wells is an partner the law firm, let's just say that Wells can look for a nice retirement fund in the Cayman Islands. And you notice that you don't hear one word from Libby's wife. Since the shagging of Irve and Judy and maybe other women Irve has created the "Apprentice" act, I don't think Ms. Libby wants to put her hands anywhere near Irve's diaper! LOL!
