From Jason's article:

It's not just a few clouds of smoke emanating from an oil refinery or a power plant that got Bodman's old company, Boston-based Cabot Corporation, those accolades.

It was the 54,000 tons of toxic emissions that his company's refineries released into the air in the Lone Star state in 1997 alone that made Cabot the fourth-largest source of toxic emissions in Texas.

Cabot is the world's largest producer of industrial carbon black, a byproduct of the oil refinery process.

Bodman personally contributed $1,000 to Bush's 2000 presidential campaign and $20,000 to Republican committees in the 1999-2000 election.

Bodman is the wealthiest member of the Bush administration. His net worth is estimated to be between $42 million and $164 million, the bulk of it in Cabot stock, deferred compensation and other benefits.

Perhaps they should cut their salaries. Why do they want to destroy their children's or grandchildren's planet?

Is it me or does the MSM do magic brush work on Scooter's face or did he have some work done on his face? It is obvious the way they photographed Judy Miller was to make her look unattractive and nuts.

Maybe Scooter found time to remember to get a face lift or something or the MSM wants him seen in his best light?

What do you see as the outcome of all this deception? Can we be redeemed in the eyes of the world? Are we powerless now with this cabal in charge?

If we attack Iran, it will have to be "tactical" nuclear bombs because we simply don't have the military manpower...iot seems as if they are laying the "groudwork" for this...I'm frightened...really...I know the people of our country are good, and the majority have spoken, but I feel we are being ignored and the power structure in charge will do what it can while the going's hot for them ...ie ..oil...well it all ties in with Libby, with Cheney, with war profiteering...with...

Yet, hours after the report was released, Energy Secretary Samuel Bodman said the Bush administration would continue to oppose mandatory reductions in greenhouse gases in the form of CO2 caps. Mandatory caps could financially ruin some of the energy companies responsible for polluting the air, he said.


That would be so Sad.

US military tells Jack Bauer: Cut out the torture scenes ... or else!

What is amazing is that the Gerbil Administration are fans of the T.V. 24 and that the producer of the show showed 24 to the troops in Baghdad and got nothing but praise. The U.S. miliary condemns the show yet the toture on that show is nothing compare to the real torture at Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo Bay. the show never used dogs, sleep deprivation, electrical wires, hoods, and pyramid of naked Iraqi detainees, and so on. This tell you that a fictional CTU (Counter Terrorism Unit) can do a better job in our country than the Pentagon and DHS!

I heard this on the news during the night which was not said on the morning news.

Notice Bush doesn't speak of this in his press conference.

http://www.earthtimes.org/articles/
show/30455.html

Tehran - A bomb exploded on Wednesday in Zahedan in south-eastern Iran, killing at least 18 people, ISNA news agency reported.

The bomb was planted in a car and went off in the early morning hours in a street in Zahedan just after a bus belonging the paramilitary revolutionary guards passed by.

It was not immediately clear whether the victims were revolutionary guards or ordinary citizens.

A guard spokesman told ISNA that one suspect has already been arrested but gave no further details.

Night news said it was possible al-Qaeda.

If Iran is using weapons against our troops then they should be in trouble but at this point, I don't trust Bush/Darth at all. Nor do I trust Israel's "leadership" anymore either. I didn't say the people of Israel, but their ruling party. Our "allies" had more to gain from 9/11 than anyone it would seem along with certain war-mongers and profiteers.

Bush won't talk about of "any of it" per Plame or pardons. "ANY OF IT" ...PHTTT.

"Thomas Kontogiannis, was also charged. The Kontogiannis connection is particularly dangerous to the Bush Regime since Cunningham had brokered a presidential pardon for him (a pardon Kontogiannis claims he paid $400,000 for). Only Bush can grant a presidential pardon and no one has dared to ask him to return the $400,000."

No wonder the system has stayed so corrupt for so many decades with the current pardon system in place.

Perhaps a impartial grand jury should hear a recap of the evidence that landed the crook in prison and why the Presidents wants a pardon. Final word, the people.

Judge Walton is certainly getting P.O. with the defense. And he makes a valid point. Check out this exchange:

Cline: You're correct that it's a substitute

Walton: I just don't buy that counselor. If you want an admission from the govt, you should have said, we want you to enter into this whether or not he testifies. You can't suggest he's going to testify, then hear Libby's testimony without hearing from him [voice raising]

Cline: We believe govt was on notice. We relied on being able to use this. Wells read it in opening.
Walton: During the entire course of hearings, it was my absolute understanding that Libby was going to testify. The basis for my rulings was predicated on him testifying.
Cline: The question is, where are we,
Walton: To the extent that that statement puts before Libby's testimony, that was a substitute for Libby's testimony because of classified info. How can you substitute anything.
Cline: you don't get to question an admission.

Walton: if the Appeals court wants to tell me, I think we turn this whole process into a game, This is supposed to be about finding the truth. When we play games with the process–there are already too many games as there are.

Dear god, is this our country?!?

" Before he was caught and sent to jail, former Congressman Randy "Duke" Cunningham was entertained by prostitutes hired by a defense contractor, according to a new federal indictment against a man he has accused of bribing him with gifts of money, meals and favors.

On Aug. 15 and 16, 2003, Cunningham was in the company of prostitutes in his private quarters of the Hapuna Suite at Hawaii's Hapuna Beach Prince hotel, the document states.

Cunningham had traveled to Hawaii with Brent Wilkes, owner of ADCS Inc., which flourished by receiving millions of dollars worth of government contracts, thanks to Cunningham's interventions. Cunningham has pleaded guilty and is now serving time in prison. He described a co-conspirator, whom prosecutors identified as Wilkes, as one of his key bribers in his plea agreement.

Around 5 p.m. on the 15th, Wilkes told one of his employees on the trip to hire two prostitutes for the evening, according to the document, filed today. He gave the employee $600 to pay for two hours' work from each prostitute, according to the indictment.

Six hours later, two prostitutes arrived accompanied by their "driver," the indictment states. The indictment places quotation marks around "driver." The employee escorted the two prostitutes up to the Hapuna Suite, the document says.

Click Here for Full Blotter Coverage.

Fifteen minutes later, Wilkes and Cunningham each escorted a prostitute to separate rooms; less than an hour later, Wilkes gave one of the prostitutes a $500 "tip" for the "services," according to the indictment.

The next night, Wilkes arranged to have that prostitute return but asked for a different prostitute to come and accompany Cunningham, the indictment states. The switch was at Cunningham's request, the prosecutors write.

Again, the indictment alleges Wilkes arranged for his employee to pay the prostitutes' "driver" $600. Again, Wilkes tipped the prostitute he was with $500 for the services, prosecutors say.

Though Wilkes' alleged involvement in the Cunningham scandal has been reported for over two years, this is the first time he has been indicted in connection to the fiasco.

The indictment appears to have been written carefully so as not to disclose the names, gender or other identifying characteristics of the prostitutes. Wilkes is scheduled to be arraigned at 9:30 a.m tomorrow."

An excerpt

The main purpose of Fitzgerald's investigation, as writer Nora Ephron gamely conceded this week, was to nail either Karl Rove or Cheney. "We all had some hope that in the end Karl Rove would end up on the hook," Ephron wrote, apparently speaking for her Huffington Post constituency. "We even dared to dream of bringing down the big Kahuna, Dick Cheney. But the smoking gun never really materialized," she admitted. But the trial must go on.

So what do we get for our cool $ 2 million? A parade of journalistic demi-celebrities, who, like Libby, all seem to be suffering from judicially induced memory loss. Here is The New York Times account of NBC capo Tim Russert 's testimony: "Mr. Russert could not remember the exact details of his telephone exchange with Mr. Libby, like the time of day . . . . Mr. Russert said that he could not rule out discussing Ms. Wilson [Plame] with Mr. Libby, but had no recollection of it."

The Times' own Anna Wintour look-alike, former reporter Judy Miller , likewise suffered brain freeze on the stand: "Ms. Miller acknowledged a weak memory and seemed not entirely certain of the notes she made after meeting with Mr. Libby. Ms. Miller admitted that she heard about Ms. Wilson from sources other than Mr. Libby but she could not remember who those people were," the paper reported.

So in the end, Fitzgerald has served up an Anna-Nicole-Smith-before-the-Supreme-Court moment: molto flashbulbs, little jurisprudence. Gossip reigns supreme. Who knew Bob Woodward's interview subjects allow him to tape-record? Brave fellows, or unwise. We learn that Washington Post staffers take their kids to the National Zoo on weekends, as if they were normal humans.

Deliberations should start on Wednesday. Like I said, very fast trial. Even Waterflake emailed and told me that the trial was very quick.

Forgot to mention: the GJ audio testimony of Libby has his defense in the grave. And I notice that the defense tried to add this evidence:

Jeffress: When I was cross-examining Grenier, I failed to proffer Grenier email that shows he knew of Plame before Libby asked about it.

Cline: I'd like to proffer the particular MIB items, that we proffered and this item.

Walton: in reference to GJ testimony, I've given the limiting instruction that there's no claim that Libby disclosed info illegally. I think that's an appropriate instruction. I do believe it was a unique enough situation that it was of such a nature that the jury could conclude that it was an event he would not forget.


LOL! Defense simply not getting it. The jurors are only to view beyond the reasonable doubt from the GJ testimony tapes that Libby's testimony to GJ and the testimonies of the witnesses from the timeline of the events in which Libby leaked to reporters that Libby is guilty of perjury or innocent, had a faulty memory, and didn't intentionally lie.

And I heard the defense want a day to do his closing arguments. But, they said that thinking that they had an airtight case. Fitz stated that he needed half of the day. So, I assume that the defense will give their closing argument part of the day and the prosecution will have the redt of the day for their closing arguments. I am assuming that deliberations will start next Wednesday. I will be very interested in what the defense's closing argument since they left holes in swiss cheese in the opening statement. And I read on FDL that Cline will be given the closing statement and not Wells. If Wells gives the closing statement, he will look an idiot since we all remembered what he said in his opening that Libby was a scapegoat for Rove...

And I remembered quite clearly when Wells made that claimed. I disagree with David. Libby had a story to tell but on the grand jury 8 hour audio testimony that was played to jury with Libby's voice.


Now the defense has already said that they will start the appeal process if Libby is convicted. Doesn't sound like the defense is that confident that their client will be found innocent. And I wonder how many of the MSM will spin that prosecution has a strong case.

What's with the jury and the Valentine's Day shirts? I heard everyone wore one except for one person who was a cranky puss.

Heard this on Keith Olbermann.

Better yet, tell them to kick it up several notches, impeachmentS, indictments, slammer-time.

"I look at this way, if Libby were innocent he would have been called to the stand. Same is true with Cheney. I believe they are both guilty and Fitz would have fried them! hehe"

S-Q:

Not necessarily. In the case of O.J. Simpson, Simpson didn't take the stand and the prosecution couldn't find Simpson guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. That was stated by the late Johnnie Cochran. In addition, Robert Blake who was accused of murdering his wife didn't take stand either. And the prosecution in that case couldn't find Blake guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.

In the case of Libby, IMHO, Libby didn't take stand because many of their motions were denied by Walton such as the gj jury audio tape testimony of Libby, the cross-examination again of Russert, testimony of reporter Andrea Mitchell, the partial video press confernce of Scotty McClellan and so on. The defense were banking on their opening argument that the jurors would hear the story of Libby and that Libby was a scapegoat. Because a majority of Fitz's witnesses gave strong testimonies of Libby's state of mind based on the timeline and the hearing the gj audio, Defense knew that they couldn't put Libby or Cheney on the stand at all. If the gj audio weren't played, they may have put Cheney and Libby on the stand. Those gj audio were the strongest evidence for Fitz to show the involvement of Cheney and Bush. In one of their recent filings, the defense wanted more witnesses who worked with Libby to prove his state of mind and that not having certain classified documents for the defense would violate Libby's 5th and 6th amendments. The defense knew by their last witness, John Hannah, with his testimony crossexamined by Fitz, that they couldn't put Libby on the stand. Their last resort was trying to get Russert back on the stand. When that didn't happen, they were finished. But, the defense's mistake was to have Fitz and his team and Walton to go thru 2 1/2 months of fighting over classified info for Libby and repeated in filings said that Libby will take the stand.

But, the defense will have a hard time giving their close arguments when they left holes in their opening arguments that:

1. The jurors will hear Libby's story

2. Libby was an scapegoat for Rove

3. Libby is known for having a faulty memory and he didn't intentionally lie

P.S. Someone actually found that diamond in a dumpster! Can you believe that? Now, everyone will want to go dumpster diving!



I'm a dumpster diver from way back, but I never found anything as fancy as that diamond!

Best thing I ever found was a collection of original Wizard of Oz books.

(And I didn't even have to dive for those, they were sitting on the
"take me if you can use me" pile next to the dump.)

SPB:

Yes, those were two other high profile cases and you're correct, the defendants weren't called to the stand.

Innocent until proven guilty...however, IMHO, I suspect both of those characters probably did it! But, the evidence just wasn't there!

In Libby's case though, you've made some very valid points! Yes, those Jurors have to be thinking about why they were told Libby would testify and possibly Cheney... and then they didn't... Hmmm...

"... Cunningham had brokered a presidential pardon for him (a pardon Kontogiannis claims he paid $400,000 for)"


Is that for real, I wonder?

That hardly sounds like America, does it?

Walton: if the Appeals court wants to tell me, I think we turn this whole process into a game, This is supposed to be about finding the truth. When we play games with the process–there are already too many games as there are.



YAY, Judge Walton!!!!!!!

According to today's Times, Libby's decision not to take the stand or call Vice President Dick Cheney to the trial "could be viewed as a sign that Libby's lawyers are confident the prosecution has failed to make its case."


Oh Good Lord, add this one to the compilation.

Judge Walton:

I do believe it was a unique enough situation that it was of such a nature that the jury could conclude that it was an event he would not forget.

"Defense attorneys misled the court into thinking that former White House aide I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby would testify in his CIA leak trial, a federal judge said Wednesday"

"Innocent until proven guilty..."

That is part of the justice system. Yes, we all know Libby is guilty. However, the jurors have to prove beyond the reasonable doubt whether Libby is innocent or guilty. But the jurors will be supplied all transcripts of testimony in the trial. We all want to make sure that Libby's case is a fair trial whether he is innocent or guilty from the juror's persepctive.The jurors have to weight the evidence. So, I have to think like a prosecutor not as a person who "feels" that Libby is guilty. Fitz is letting the evidence that he brought in this case to prove Libby committed perjury. We all need to follow the justice system.
