Not A Reporter...

Ex- CIA Robert Grenier Testimony, One
I was employed at CIA prior to that–for 27 years.

Started on January 14, 1979.

2002-2004, where were you working:

Starting in 2002 Iraq Mission Manager.

A new position created by Tenet, I was asked to be point person on Iraq. I was asked to coordinate what CIA was doing.

Did this include attending Deputies Committee Meetings.

Don't want to go into a long discussion of policy making process. Deputies Committee primary part of policy-making. Key security agencies are included. I would typically go as the "plus one." Where were these Deputy Committee meetings held–in the Situation Room.

Do you know Scooter Libby?

Yes. The very first time I saw him was at a Deputies Committee meeting in July 2001. Started seeing him on regular basis in 2002.

Those meetings were held quite frequently. The number of meetings over a given week evolved, at least two or three times a week. He was in meetings on Iraq, those meetings were held 2-3 times a week.

Their relationship was that of business acquaintance.

When he came out to the CIA when he came out with VP for "briefings."

June 11 phone message that Scooter Libby called.

I wouldn't have recalled the message. But I recall I got a message at my office.

1-900-456-9000 was Libby's number.

The message is up, he identifies the writing of his secretary.

That was the first time this had ever happened that he got a call from Libby. <

Good Morning Fitz and the JBs..

So...Libby's throwing Rove under the Bus eh ?

Awww..I thought smurf was gonna go down alone! LOLMAO*)

That Gilligan defense has no chance whatsoever.

Poor Fitz must be bored off his scull and waiting to pull his ace card and send gloom through the halls of the WH!!

I love looking through Jason Leopolds crystal ball!

It's cool!

It could very likely be a smokescreen by Wells; as there will be plenty of smoke and mirrors by the defense.

But then we will have to see as the trial progresses...

Hi GEF!

Back to work here... :(

And to think that the overwhelm over National Security issues Irve had to interupt Granier's DCI meeting and be pulled away to talk about Wilson. And what did Irve have his plate on that day?

Yes he is looking for all the witnesses to be liars and all have memory lost. As he can refer to all people losing memory. But this case is giving more damage to the White House appointees being stupid dumb and not qualified for their jobs. That can only point to why this invasion was a failure and how deep the cover up was. These people walk about Washington like their intelligent only to hear how stupid they are. Now to the fact that Libby lied well that doesn't change. As the Defense continues to make journalist liars and WH staff it will only leave Americans not trusting government or media.

I like Libby's phone number which probably translates into 1-900-WMD-LIES and costs only $1 trillion dollars per call/war.

Hi, GEF:

You have to excuse me. I will be popping in and out of the blog because I am multi-tasking today: working on crapola, updating my blog as much as I can, and keeping up with the soap opera trial: As the Scooter X turns...

How are you doing today?

Not likely. Remember what happened when the head GOPs got scared during the Mark Foley Scandal. They were throwing each other under the bus then and the finger pointing got to humorous levels..

It's clear these guys have no backbone when it comes to admitting their evildoings..

Those Chickenhawks have jellyfish spines...

Just tough talk..

More gloom for the Gerbil...

WASHINGTON - The Democratic-controlled Senate Foreign Relations Committee dismissed President Bush's plans to increase troops strength in Iraq on Wednesday as "not in the national interest," an unusual wartime repudiation of the commander in chief.

LMAO @ this from FDL:

"Interruption! Grenier lost his glasses. Everyone is running around the courtroom looking for his glasses. Someone found them. Jeffress says "It's a trick, I do that to all the witnesses." Everyone is still milling around. Fitz and Wells checking in. Fitz says, "would everyone check their papers." Fitz on his knees looking. "What is that laying right on the desk?""

Stay off your knees, Fitzie!

Hi GEF and all
Now Webb overshadowed the Bush speech. The best line of the evening:
Webb: If Bush Doesn’t Take The ‘Right Kind Of Action…We Will Be Showing Him The Way’ »

That is how last was seen by the World.

Wells better have something better then saying all witnesses have memory lost.

The American people are tired of watching a liar(gerbil) in action and welcomed the distraction of someone telling the truth(Webb).

Let's show gerbil the way!

Best good luck with Tweezer man. Maybe, you were one of the memory experts crossed off the list.

GEF:

Yes, I saw a little of the Gerbil's dog doo speech. As Jackie said, Webb's speech overshadows the Gerbil. I was more interesting in Webb than the Gerbil's bullshit and bla blah blah speech. It's still S.O.S. to me...But, I just found that McCain feel asleep during the SOTU address. Father time needs to take some serious No-Doz if he plans to run for office.

From FDL:

F (Fitz)- Have you looked at that document. Are there 3 questions or statements indicated on that document. Do you remember some of that indepdendent of the document. Turn it over so it's not a distraction? Describe the two you remember.

S (Schmall)- The first one was a visit by Tom Cruise and Penelope Cruise.

S (Schmall)- Mr Libby told me about it–he was excited about it I was excited about it. Tom Cruise was there to talk to Libby about how Germany treats Scientologists.

No wonder Connie looked so sad she has been replace with another woman. Well it was a good run for her with the Gerbil. Now she has to look for another man. Maybe so other rich dude will like her dancing around like Tina Turner. Laura still has the last laugh as she has her rich Texan. I wondered by Connie and Bush had no contact at the Union speech. Usually he's all over her but not this time.

excerpt

"Just as Harken was selling itself its own subsidiary in Hawaii, it set up another corporation on another island. Harken Bahrain Oil company registered in the Cayman Islands in September 1989. The Caymans, like Bermuda, are a convenient offshore address for U.S. companies that want to do business at home but prefer not to pay U.S. taxes. After the furor over tax-dodging corporations broke, Bush made this ringing statement in August 2002: “We ought to look at people who are trying to avoid U.S. taxes as a problem.”

"Harken was not Enron, but it was certainly Enron in the making. What Bush took out of Harken was also twenty times as much as Bill and Hillary Clinton lost in a crummy Arkansas real estate deal that cost American taxpayers seventy million dollars to investigate."

"Capitalism is a marvelous system for creating wealth. On the other hand, unregulated capitalism creates hideous social injustice and promptly destroys itself with greed."

No wonder Residents are bought and paid for, campaign pots have to have 100 million to start out. Unless America puts her foot down, we will keep getting raped by our so called "leaders".

Just for the record, Fitz' dignity was not compromised in the least by helping the man look for his glasses.

Hi, GEF. Good to see you.

Lots of faulty memories in that Bush Administration, eh? Stay focused, Jury! Am looking forward to Christy's report from her perspective inside the courtroom.

In the meanwhile, here's some reading if you haven't had a chance to make the rounds:

All 43 “no” votes on the motion to end debate were cast by Republicans. Five Republicans joined 47 Democrats and two independents in voting “yes.” They were Norm Coleman of Minnesota, Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania, John W. Warner of Virginia and Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins, both of Maine. (Senator Sam Brownback, Republican of Kansas, and Senators Tom Carper of Delaware and Tim Johnson of South Dakota, both Democrats, did not vote.)

WASHINGTON--Sen. Sam Brownback and his family plan to withdraw hundreds of thousands of dollars from investments in companies that do business with Sudan. The Kansas Republican is encouraging others to do the same.

Brownback didn't vote because he's running for Prez. He has said in emails replies NO to the increase. He also told Kansans to pull their money out of Sudan like his family did with their hundreds of thousands. Kinda hard on minimum wage, Senator Sam. (He married the money too)
