It's All Good...

and bad.

Is cover-up worse than crime in CIA leak trial?

CIA Leak Players

PROSECUTOR

Patrick Fitzgerald made a name for himself as one of the leading prosecutors on terrorism and national security issues while in the U.S. attorney‘s office in New York. He was nominated to be U.S. attorney in Chicago in 2001; two years later, he was put in charge of the CIA leak case.

With the full authority of the attorney general, Fitzgerald spent more than two years investigating the leak of a CIA officer‘s name. He interviewed Bush, pored over classified documents and persuaded a judge to send a reporter to jail for not cooperating.

After all that, the veteran prosecutor did not bring a leak charge. Instead, he accused Libby of lying to the FBI and a federal grand jury.

But to those who know Fitzgerald, it was not a surprise.

"He‘s somebody who believes in doing the right thing and who believes in government," said Andrew McCarthy, a former colleague from Fitzgerald‘s days as a New York prosecutor.

That attitude, along with a relentless work ethic, has won Fitzgerald praise from law enforcement colleagues and the begrudging respect of defense lawyers — even those who say he can be overzealous.

"I disagree with Pat on a lot of the core essentials in life, but when it comes to his work as a prosecutor, I generally respect Pat," said New York lawyer Stanley Cohen. "Pat‘s whole position is he really believes in the system. If it‘s gonna work, the rules have to apply."

Fitzgerald does not fit the mold of a typical Washington special prosecutor. He ran his investigation on a tight budget and has said very little publicly about the case, saying prosecutors should "charge someone or be quiet."

Born in Brooklyn to Irish immigrants, the 46-year-old prosecutor has an everyman quality about him in the courtroom. He does not swagger or play for the sound bite. If he does crack a joke to lighten the mood, friends say it is usually at his own expense.

Fitzgerald drew criticism from journalism group for demanding the grand jury testimony of reporters. His demands prompted a federal judge to send Judith Miller, then working for The New York Times, to jail for 85 days for refusing to testify about her conversations with Libby. Fitzgerald threatened to repeat that tactic in an unrelated Chicago-based investigation into who told Miller and Times reporter Philip Shenon about an Islamic charity investigation. <

"Spam?" ewwwwww.

Four years to bring this to trial? It should be great. Looking foward to seeing "the system work," and curious as to whether any potential witnesses in the past four years were silenced in any way.

Good luck, Mr. 'USS Krispy Kreme Fitzgerald.' It may take more than "the luck of the Irish," but you can believe you've got a huge "Peanut Gallery" out here cheering you on.

Good Morning All,

Interesting on Judge Walton's background.

Are you going to get a last minute phone call with a plea to deal? Or have they convinced him they can pull off this caper too? haha Criminal Justice 101 says its a no go...

Enjoy your Sunday, JB's:-)

I hope Andrew C. McCarthy is just an old colleague of Fitzgerald and not an old friend whose views he shares. Have you ever looked up the archive of McCarthy's articles on NRO? He sounds like a charter member of PNAC and Opus Dei.

I think this trial will proceed along the narrow lines Fitzgerald has laid out, and Libby's conviction on perjury and obstruction of justice is the best we can hope for at this point.

This one's for Fitzie & JBs...

The one and only Fitz is here to stay,
And he's someone to fear to your dismay,
More of a mystery than Eliot Ness,
He sweeps Chicago of its filthy mess.
Now newspapers are doin’ the backspin
As it’s time for this trial to begin.
With poor Little Scooter and Cheney, too,
Our Fitz will lay out the truth before you.
Cheney's men aching to beat a rap sheet
Will spew their lies to ultimate defeat.
Justice Bloggers got pedals to the floor,
As Fitz brings the crooks to their knees once more!

Go Fitzie & Team!!! You're the greatest!

"We knew nothing about what was going on in Iraq," a CIA official recalled. "We were way behind the eight ball. We had to look under every rock." Wilson, too, occasionally flew overseas to monitor operations. She also went to Jordan to work with Jordanian intelligence officials who had intercepted a shipment of aluminum tubes heading to Iraq that CIA analysts were claiming--wrongly--were for a nuclear weapons program. (The analysts rolled over the government's top nuclear experts, who had concluded the tubes were not destined for a nuclear program.)

The JTFI found nothing. The few scientists it managed to reach insisted Saddam had no WMD programs. Task force officers sent reports detailing the denials into the CIA bureaucracy.

The Australian-I say sue Micheal Ledeen too! NGOs to sue US over WMD claims
The lawsuit by the collective will be filed at either French or Belgian courts, Kadi added.

In January 2003, US President George W. Bush accused Saddam of having bought uranium from Niger to make weapons of mass destruction.

The Niger collective said in a statement that investigations by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), world media and US officials, all concluded that it was a "false accusation" against Niger.

That false information was used by Bush "to invade Iraq," said the collective's statement, which also called for support from Niger's President Mamadou Tandja, who back in 2003 said the US allegations were "harming Niger's image".

WASHINGTON (AP) - Vice President Dick Cheney said Sunday the Pentagon and CIA are not violating people's rights by examining the banking and credit records of hundreds of Americans and others suspected of terrorism or espionage in the United States.

National security letters permit the executive branch to seek records about people in terrorism and spy investigations without a judge's approval or grand jury subpoena.

The problem most Americans probably think about Cheney and Bush is if they think they or their families or companies are exempt from the same practices.

Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening folks!

It's Sunday!

And what the article left out is that when Fitz was giving the CIA Leak case and given the position of the Special Prosecutor to investigate who leak Plame's name that Fitz later into the investigation decided to change his invesitgation from who leaked Valerie Wilson's name to a WH conspirarcy by creating a timeline. Jason Leopold was the only reporter that wrote an article on how Fitz created a timeline for the case.

As far as Libby, Fitz looked at all the players involved in a WH conspiracy plot to discredit Wilson. Libby just happened to give a different compelling story to the investigators and GJ and committed perjury.

But what Fitz created in his leg work in the CIA Leak case a future investigation into a WH conspiracy since the case never was on a WH conspiracy. But, of course, all of the major players including Libby are not off the hook yet..

Yes, Fitz is a practical joker. But Fitz doesn't always gets the last laugh.

"Out West, where you vacation, the aspens will already be turning. They turn in clusters, because their roots connect them."

Several prominent current and former Bush Administration figures are emeritus members of ASG, including Condoleeza Rice, Dick Cheney, Paul Wolfowitz and Richard Armitage. It's an odd turn of phrase, one that seems to insinuate that to give evidence against Libby might implicate some of these other "aspens".

Good afternoon. Busy night last night.

Did he weaken the case by choosing to to prosecute Libby rather than Armitage as Andy Sullivan implies? I think the Libby case will stand on its own merits once the prosecution lays out the facts and the issues, minus the spin. It is not up to the spinmeisters, it is ultimately up to the Grand Jury.

With the number of websites that have popped up, the information that is being revealed on blogs, the Books and DVDs on all subjects that are being published and widely distributed --- it is obvious that 2007 is the Year in which THE shit hits THE fan.

the mere fact that secrets from the oval office were even discussed with an outsider like miller makes the act treasonous and criminal..feeling smug about being in the know of such matters of great importance and dallying with a grand jury to cover for one who has lied to a grand jury should not go unpunished...they have conspired to dupe the people they were entrusted to serve..

Did anyone read NY times article re: NSA letters ?

NSA letters.

Domestic application .

If Cheney or any of them up at the Pentagon want to know anything about anyone , they issue a letter .

They don't send the letter to the person they are interested in . They send it to their ops and the ops dig up everything they can and wiretap those persons.

When they don't find anything , they harass the person or persons they issue they letters on.

If the persons survives , someone kills the agents. Probably the same ones who issued the letters.

Who they do not investigate are their friends who repeatedly bankrupt companies and steal from the shareholders.

I may be mistaken, but those sound like the words of a person who married and procreated, talking about someone who chose not to marry and procreate.

As my mother said to me one time,
"You don't know what life is all about."


("Thanks a lot.......")

Dance in the bathroom before you give your opening statement so you loosen up.



That's fabulous advice, teak.

That sounds like something I would have said.

Why, Nell Stumpff, my dear, sweet, Georgia landlord you have a $25,000 investment for me: 1/2 a cabin in Wyoming? What a kind offer. How very sweet of you. What's the weather like in Wyoming? Anything like San Diego?

(Next you'll have me investing in Haliburton or Bechtel? Or Three Mile Island?)

Take a look at this...speak of him just today- but as yet UNCONFIRMED...Breaking News: Michael Ledeen Is Dead

Exclusive: Must credit Jon Swift
According to a confidential source, Michael Ledeen, Pajamas Media's supreme pundit, is dead. Apparently he was not well for some time. I have not been able to get any independent confirmation of what my source is telling me, but I have decided to go ahead with this story anyway because, after all, that is what Ledeen would have wanted me to do.

G'Night, best to you tomorrow Fitz- don't let the Cheney bugs bite;-)

Here's a quote I can really relate to.

"I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It's when you know you're licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what."
Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird, 1960

Playing with prosecutors

From NY Times.

The Bush administration has appointed an extreme political partisan as the new United States attorney for Arkansas.

Normally, the Senate would have vetted him, and quite possibly blocked his appointment. But the White House took advantage of a little-noticed provision of the Patriot Act, which allows it to do an end run around the Senate.

It is particularly dangerous to put United States attorneys’ offices in the hands of political operatives because federal prosecutors have extraordinary power to issue subpoenas and bring criminal charges. The Senate should fix the law and investigate whether such offices in Arkansas and elsewhere are being politicized.

H. E. Bud Cummins, the respected United States attorney in Little Rock, recently left office. He has been replaced on an interim basis by J. Timothy Griffin, who has a thin legal record but a résumé that includes working for Karl Rove and heading up opposition research for the Republican National Committee.

Senator Mark Pryor, Democrat of Arkansas, wanted to raise concerns about Mr. Griffin’s appointment as part of the confirmation process. But he couldn’t because there was no confirmation process.

Mr. Pryor, Senator Dianne Feinstein, Democrat of California, and Senator Patrick Leahy, Democrat of Vermont, have accused the Bush administration of “pushing out U.S. attorneys from across the country under the cloak of secrecy and then appointing indefinite replacements without Senate confirmation.”

The San Diego Union-Tribune has reported that San Diego’s United States attorney was asked to resign, and that even some of her opponents “said the supposed reasons she is being forced out are perplexing.”

There could be unsavory political reasons for putting a party operative in charge of federal criminal investigations in Little Rock, which has been home to two possible presidential candidates, Hillary Clinton and former Gov. Mike Huckabee. But it is not necessary to leap to extravagant conclusions.

United States attorneys are so powerful that their impartiality must be beyond question. One way to ensure that is to require them to submit to questions from the Senate, and face a confirmation vote.

Senators Feinstein, Leahy and Pryor have a bill to change the method for selecting interim United States attorneys back to what it once was: the federal district court in the jurisdiction would make the appointment. Congress should pass that bill, and take a hard look at how vacancies are being filled.

There might not be fire where the senators see smoke. But Congress should not take any chances.

Jury selection is likely to last two or three days. Experts say that despite the publicity surrounding the case, U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton will be able to seat a jury with relative ease.
