"I can not tell the entire contents of the conversation as much of it was off the record, but as a result of it, I am going to hold off further speculation until the end of the day on Friday, May 19, or until, how shall I put it, events obviously dictate otherwise."

Right.

We will see.

Jim E.

TM: "Does this mean I get to share credit with Leopold for his 'scoop'?"

Given that you and Leopold likely have the same exact high level sources on this story, I would say "yes" in answer to your question. You earned the scoop as much as he did! (As in, guessing which Wed or Friday you think something will happen.)

Patton

Jason Leopold has been indicted for public indecency and criminal ignorance in East Los Angeles County at 3:00 O'clock today.
Jeralyn Merritt witnessed the entire Mylee' and has been put under a gag order.

He was given 20.4 hours to clear his desk of all new scoops and prosecutor Scooter Deville presented his lawyer with a double super secret sealed indictment at his cats vets office.

I have this on good authority from at least two close to human sources and one mumbling bag lady that sleeps in the alley.

The indictment is to be unsealed, de-containerized and detailed at a press conference later on.
If this turns out to be untrue at some point I will out my sources, unless those sources give me more detailed reasons why they were right to be my sources the first time.

My sources won't talk to anyone else so don't expect this to hit the media soon, you will need to come back here for updates.

More to follow.

And, NO, do not e-mail me asking if I have pictures of a gagged Jeralyn Merritt...sickos.

Lurker

Here is one interesting post over at TruthOut:

"Fitzgerald Will Indict Eventually
Even if this story has some facts wrong, or the timeline is off... Rove will be indicted.

I was in Chicago when a truck driver was involved in accident that killed a family in a mini-van. An investigation by the local prosecutor into the truck driver revealed no paperwork on the guy from the State License Bureau. A deposition with the truck driver produced evidence he walked into the license bureau with cash at the instruction of his boss and he was issued a commerical drivers license without taking the state test.

The local prosecutor called Fitzgerald who said "I'll take care of it"

And result? 22 felony conviction for GOP Gov Ryan. All the wags said Ryan could never be touched. When he was indicted... All the wags said he would never be convicted.

1. Fitzgerald has never once in his career seated a Grand Jury and presented evidence into the record with indicting.
2. Karl Rove has been identified as "Official A" in the Libby indictment... In every case Fitzgerald has done this, "Offical A" was charged.

Fact of the matter is... Despite whatever Leopold has said on this... In my eyes, Rove is already convicted, because...

Fitzgerald has never missed a conviction on an indictment either."

PeterUK

Has no one worked flexible hours?

Mickey

Leoplold, Waas, Larry are old CIA guys? It's a retired CIA guy leaking?

Kate

From the posting on Talk Left I would have to guess if Rove:

1) was a Chicago truck driver who killed a family;
2) was a corrupt Illinois governor convicted on 22 counts
3) was a busy government official who forgot a two minute telephone call from the nuisance Cooper

Will the real Karl please stand up?

BurbankErnie

I have heard from unimpeachable sources in Texas that not only will the case against Libby be thrown out, but Fitz, Wilson, R. Beers, and the entire Circus of Clowns who have ever mentioned Outing CIA Gangster Plame wil be indicted for Stupidity, BDS, Lying to the Country, and drawing a paycheck whilst a Liberal.
John F'n Kerry was unavailable for comment, but Sean (I am playing Richard Clarke in a Movie) Penn appealed to the United Nations, presumably following character in the movie "The Interpeter". The World Peace organization(UN)has sanctioned the U.S., and will immediately add Iran to the Security Council.
Unimpeachable sources I tell you. All this will happen on Friday, 05/19/06. Super Cerial!

Oh, stop - I predicted a May 19 indictment as well
I re-read your link. I don't see where you predicted a May 19th indictment. I saw where you said there was a 70% chance of indictment, but with no date. Did I miss it, or wasn't it there?

[Bother - I fixed the link. I had made an earlier prediction of an indictment someday, and added a date in a subsequent post, which is now double-linked in this post]

Bill in AZ

This would be cruel and unusual punishment, but if Karl Rove has any kind of sense of humor he will leave the office on Friday in between a couple of policemen - then stop and thumb his nose at the gaggle of moonbat MSM reporters (er... that's redundant) before going home. Lib heads will explode the world over.

I don't give a f*** if Leopold is right!


As long as Darth is indicted.
As to who gets the credit for breaking the story or who deserves the credit or doesn't get the credit or whose credibility is temporarily affected or unaffected or permanently affected or whose hair gets messed up or who has to put on fresh eyeliner or has to get a new prom date after it's all over or who loses his press badge and magnifying glass or what six MSM companies look like f***king idiots when it's all said and done or which details are slightly mixed up or totally effed to hell or all dead on I DO NOT GIVE A F***. As long as Rove is indicted. (And sooner would be better than later.)

BillinAZ
I like how you think.
Is this how it works on the lefty blogs?
Leopold's story is full of calumny and slander and he pulls a n Emily Litella on us with a "never mind"?It reminds me of the song:
The Joker Went Wild
And He Couldn't Smile
Because He Had Lost Everything Worthwhile
That about sums it up for this Jason character.

Cecil Turner

I re-read your link. I don't see where you predicted a May 19th indictment. I saw where you said there was a 70% chance of indictment, but with no date. Did I miss it, or wasn't it there?

He gave the wrong link. It's in the same one as the "(earlier discussion and mockery here)" link:

All that said, I am personally predicting (with 70% probability) a Rove indictment for this Friday, May 19, with a second guess of Wednesday, May 24.

vanderleun

You know, if this doesn't work out turthout may have launched a new Net meme, "That's Our Bullshit and We're Sticking to It."

Sue

Shoot fire, we should all just pick a day of the week we think Fitz will indict and then someone from JOM can claim a scoop.

maryrose

I'm predicting no Rove indictment but Fitz letting things dangle because it suits his purposes.

BumperStickerist

Maybe Leopold is talking about bicycle shop business hours.

24 of those hours could stretch into, like, July.

MayBee

I keep wondering how wrong he can be and still be right. If you read the Salon story, this is what he did then too. A few more days and he'll have a little more information...ad infinitum.

It is a horrible reflection on Wilson and Larry JJ Johnson that they are a part of this. I hope someone that matters is taking note.

Jeralyn needs her Oprah/James Frey moment with him. His story has not held up, no matter what happens from this point forward.

It is about moving goalposts, but the goalposts are actually rorschach inkblots that look like goalposts OR they look like Rove being frogmarched.

ordi

I'm predicting Rove indictment on June 31st! :-) It is as accurate as Leo"tard".

maryrose

ordi:
I agree with your date though the 12th of never is more accurate.

PeterUK

I predict that Rove will return to the mother ship and a Rovian battlecruiser will vapourise the Bay Area,there will be no singing and dancing.

maryrose

Beam me up Scotty!

Neo

That must be 24 banker's hours

MayBee

I predict a Rove indictment, if and/or when it occurs, will occur in a period of time that is encapsulated within a 24-hour period of time. Futhermore, it will happen within 24-business hours of a Wednesday. Rove will then have 24-business hours to get his affairs in order, so the actual indictment will come at some period of time AFTER he has gotten his affairs in order, which will be sometime between now and 2008.
So.

topsecretk9

I just remembered something...(because of Specter) but Raw Story and Chris Matthew's said last Thursday news crews were staked out at the CHouse for Friday...

Jason changed the story to have Fitz stopping by the CHouse around 11:30 and then dashing over to Patton Boggs for the marathon session. (or some close variation of this - can't bear to re-read)

UM...news crews. Were they all taking a lunch break when Fitz dashed out? Wasn't the point of them being there to witness Fitz at the courthouse? ... Wouldn't the media be reporting Fitz was at the courthouse -- because that is why their news crews were there?

Update on the Rove Indictment Story
By Marc Ash (Truthout editor)

Wed May 17th, 2006

For the past few days, we have endured non-stop attacks on our credibility, and we have fought hard to defend our reputation. In addition, we have worked around the clock to provide additional information to our readership. People want to know more about this, and our job is to keep them informed. We take that responsibility seriously.

Here's what we now know: I spoke personally yesterday with both Rove's spokesman Mark Corallo and Rove's attorney Robert Luskin. Both men categorically denied all key points of our recent reporting on this issue. Both said, "Rove is not a target," "Rove did not inform the White House late last week that he would be indicted," and "Rove has not been indicted." Further, both Corallo and Luskin denied Leopold's account of events at the offices of Patton Boggs, the law firm that represents Karl Rove. They specifically stated again that no such meeting ever occurred, that Fitzgerald was not there, that Rove was not there, and that a major meeting did not take place. Both men were unequivocal on that point.

We can now report, however, that we have additional, independent sources that refute those denials by Corallo and Luskin. While we had only our own sources to work with in the beginning, additional sources have now come forward and offered corroboration to us.

We have been contacted by at least three reporters from mainstream media - network level organizations - who shared with us off-the-record confirmation and moral support. When we asked why they were not going public with this information, in each case they expressed frustration with superiors who would not allow it.

GoofOut Linky

Will Pitt of GoofOut posted the above at the DUmp...he also said this


When the documents come out
they will have dates on the top.

Those dates will be Friday May 12, 2006.

Just as we said.


jerry

FWIW I predicted May 18th, and I'm prepared to have fun regardless.

Specter

Gotta hand it to Karl. I mean he planted the indictment story with Joe so Joe could give it to Larry and Larry to Jason. I can hear it now...Karl says, "Joe? This is Joel Loria - I'm outside the Patton Boggs offices and it is 2:30 AM - hey listen - Fitz just came out. He's been in there in a locked down 4th floor since 11:30 this morning. He was singing and dancing and said something like '24-hour affair'. Not sure what he meant by that unless...."

The man is a genius....

clarice

Wouldn't the media be reporting Fitz was at the courthouse ? More evidence of the media being in Rove's pocket..

windansea

a source is a source of course of course

I hereby name Jason Mr Ed

Lurker

Ha! Somebody said at TO that Fitz has not denied the story.

Well, he hasn't confirmed it either.

How is this different from Tony Snow saying we will not confirm nor deny?

topsecretk9

At this point, the only source the truthnot people can rely on is someone IN FITZ's OFFICE with direct knowledge. That's it.

A friend of Karl - for them - is not reliable. A Rove attorney leaking is technically not reliable -- for them.

So either FITZ has a very leaky office all this long, long Jason reporting time OR it's BS.

Specter

lurker,

I wonder if that is because nobody asked him....Fitz I mean. Give the man a photo-op...reminds me of "If You Give A Mouse A Cookie"

clarice

Well, perhaps someone ought to email the info to Fitz with a warning that he's sprung a leak..

MayBee

The fact that he falsely identified himself as a London reporter seems not to bother any of his supporters, does it?

Specter

I got yelled at when I pointed that out....LOL

Neo

I predict that if TM starts no more threads that this thread could last until Karl Rove as died an old man at home in his bed, having never seen the inside of a jail cell.

Jason Leopold will join OJ in the search for his ex-wife's killer.

Lurker

Clarice, what a great idea!

Wonder how Fitz feels about his leaky department. Will he start an investigation among his own employees and indict his own people?

As for the false identification, they've already forgotten that. Specter, why don't you...remind them and again and again?

Kate

TS-I never saw the source referred to as a in Fitz office. I thought it was sources close to the case. Is this what they're saying now.

Lurker

Hey, Specter, I see you posting there. You should've said something like maybe Fitz was on the phone with Jason, no,...Joel Lorie?

topsecretk9

The fact that he falsely identified himself as a London reporter seems not to bother any of his supporters, does it?

Gee, no kidding...I know I keep making the Ben Demenche(sp) comparison, but I can't help it. The really mean spirited personal attacks and the silly moral high-ground the left took slicing and dicing Ben and despite Jason's past of vastly larger journalistic sins and present sleaziness practice they still let him linger with great hopes AND move the goal posts!

Not all, I should say...but you are right Maybee...no one has had the balls to call falsely presenting oneself out for what it is - fraudulent and unseemly tactics

Sue

Someone at TO made an excellent point, if you can believe someone at TO made an excellent point (besides our very own Specter). If Rove was indicted last Friday and is still in the WH making speeches, it will be a political nightmare for Bush.

Specter

fixed lurker

topsecretk9

Kate,

that is my own reasoning. I don't even know what they are calling other than a flipping fleet and layer upon layer of sources at this point...but no one else in the media can seem to get to ANY of them.

I'm am just saying...for them to be standing by the story -- at this point...the source is leaking from Fitz's office or BS.

MayBee

TS-
I wouldn't expect Truth Out to care, but has Jeralyn even called out Jason on that?

Specter

Here is what Marc Ash said:

In fact, the building was staked out by at least two major network news crews.

He was referring to the Patton Boggs offices and not the CH.

Neo

best quote of the week
After reportly taking his cat to the vet around the time that Jason Leopold claims this hard-boiled session with Fitz was taking place.

The cat’s fine, thanks. Her stool sample shows no evidence of harmful parasites, which is one of the big differences between my cat’s stools and this case.

Bob Luskin

Rick Ballard

Sue,

If it was a double secret indictment no one will ever know anyway so the speeches would be OK.

I think the double secret angle is Leo the Lyin' Hearted's best bet at this point. Couple it with a secret plea agreement involving a secret sentence of three years as a Republican strategist and all bases are covered.

Kate

TS-thanks. Leopold always uses "sources close to the investigation." That could be anybody or nobody. I don't think Fitz' office leaks much, I suspect a low level leak to Waas and a PR leak to the Times.

clarice

HEH! Glad you're back, Rick!

topsecretk9

---I'm am just saying...for them to be standing by the story -- at this point...the source is leaking from Fitz's office or BS.---

meant to say

for them to be standing by the story -- at this point---the source is leaking from Fitz's office or the notion of a fleet of sources or that they keep adding sources is BS (obviously the *story* by lying sources would be BS) -- as in they are digging a deeper hole by lying that they are adding actual people


does that make sense?

topsecretk9

---He was referring to the Patton Boggs offices and not the CH.---

I am pretty sure Raw Story and Matthew said there were stakeouts at courthouse, FWIW

So if they were also at Patton Boggs, then...um...they sure missed a WHOLE LOT

MayBee

If you let yourself believe that Larry Johnson and Joe Wilson are just making stuff up, it can blow your whole world view. I suspect that's why some are so invested in this story.

ps. It is great to see Rick here.

Sue

OT...

...I've been trying to work out a conspiracy theory of my own.

In 2002, Joe Wilson started JC Wilson International. A company, according to what I've been able to determine, that provides the same services that BERG provides. BERG is Larry Johnson's company. Both companies provide the same services that a company called BERI, SA provide, McCarthy's old employer. Just as the plumbers in a town know who their competition is, I figure Larry and Joe knew each other. I haven't decided how McCarthy fits in, but I suspect a fit somewhere. More on her if I conspire something later.

When Larry Johnson came out in defense of Joe and Valerie, he came out early with lots of facts about their personal life. As an aside, when I questioned Larry on his site, he immediately deleted my question, something he only did when I was guessing too close for comfort, IMO. He left up most of my really snarky comments. I suspect the trip to Niger was discussed by Joe and Larry and Larry remembered it when VIPS needed something to ratchet up the Bush lied meme. If I were a reporter in Washington, that is the story I would be working on. How well Larry knew Joe. There is a story there...

topsecretk9

Maybee

No comment or frown on that...we'll have to wait for JGoldstein to allow it, I am afraid.

That was a little harsh only for effect.

HerbieWilkers

Well Dave insisted that I try to find out what was going on in the Left-o-sphere with the Leopold thing. So I dropped what I was doing and logged online.

I found Larry Johnson easily enough but he's not saying anything.

Then I looked high and low looking for anyone on the left that would acknowledge that Leopold was full of it. Didn't find anyone like that but I did meet a new friend and got some squirrel hunting tips.

I decided to head over to Daily Kos but I got lost on the way. Thankfully I found a sign that pointed me in the right general direction. Turned out they weren't saying anything either.

I cruised over to TalkLeft. Jeralyn's sticking by Leopold but there are signs of desperation and unrest.

I went over to TruthOut. They're looking kind of desperate and freaky but it seemed to me like Specter had the situation well in hand.

Generally speaking, about the only thing I learned for sure is they're all really upset by some guy named Bush.

Finally I arrived back home and boy was I glad. Cruising around on the lefty websites is enough to make you howl and howl some more. Exhausted, I crashed for the night.

I told Dave next time he can do his own dumpster diving.

clarice

Funny isn't it? The two big leaks this week--USA Today's NSA story and Leopold's Rove story--both proved false. On the first, I believe it was a sting. On the second, with a guy like JL I can't be sure.

topsecretk9

If you let yourself believe that Larry Johnson and Joe Wilson are just making stuff up, it can blow your whole world view.

truthTHAT.org

I asked once, gonna do it again...howz come no one is asking Wilson about his sources?

obvious, but still.

Rick Ballard

TS,

There is a distinct (in my mind, anyway) possiblity that Munchausen is the source and that he (Munchie) was pawn3d.

Who wouldn't want to set up Munchie?

Thanks, Clarice and MayBee.

Specter

Herbie,

Take your NBC suit next time. I got an extra at the cleaner's if you need one. Be sure to button up tight though....

maryrose

TS:
In a roundabout convoluted way-yes.

windansea

what I find amazing is I haven't seen anyone accuse TruthOut editors of the 800 lb gorilla lurking in the corner

I think they hired and published leopold's trash in a cynical ploy for more traffic

anyone know how to cite a graphic on truthout's webhits before and after their Rove Indictment story last friday?

Sue

All has been explained by a poster at TO. 24 business hours would be at the end of business today. Rove's indictment will be tomorrow, or sometime thereafter. Someday.

MayBee

Woah, Herbie. That last shot is NSFW.

Cecil Turner

DW,
that was hi-frickin'-larious. (I especially liked the squirrel-hunting tips . . . but I bet you initially wanted to use that one for looking high.) Nicely done.

MayBee

There is a distinct (in my mind, anyway) possiblity that Munchausen is the source and that he (Munchie) was pawn3d.

Do you think pwn3d? Sometimes I think he is the source of the Nile. Anyway, it's all making me wonder about that Grossman article Leopold wrote.

Also, Wilson met some guy from Kos (teacher ken) in a bar on Saturday night and just started blabbling about all of this to him. Wilson is not a discreet man.

topsecretk9

Herbie...Dave needs to get you a treat after all that mystery solving.

windansea

Herbie...let's dog it out

there are a few sane posters at the dump

Okay, so an indicted Rove continues to work at the White House?!!I can't believe this had never occurred to me.There is no possible way!!!

It Rove were indicted, he would have resigned instantly

***

Leopolds sources have the WMDs.
They will reveal them in 78 business vacation weeks calculated at 3 weeks/year.

The third lacrosse player is one of the sources, and he has passed a lie detector test.

****

I am ashamed that people would print lies and call it journalism and I'm ashamed that a lot of good Democrats, who only want to see justice served in this matter, are getting so excited only to be let down.

Rove is not going to be indicted this week. If he is, I will eat my hat.

****

You're living in a fantasy world, Pitt....
It's Judith Miller all over again.

I suppose you found the WMDs, too.

****

"Rove's spokesman Mark Corallo and Rove's attorney Robert Luskin.... categorically denied all key points of our recent reporting on this issue. Both said, "Rove is not a target," "Rove did not inform the White House late last week that he would be indicted," and "Rove has not been indicted." Further, both Corallo and Luskin denied Leopold's account of events at the offices of Patton Boggs, the law firm that represents Karl Rove. They specifically stated again that no such meeting ever occurred, that Fitzgerald was not there, that Rove was not there, and that a major meeting did not take place. Both men were unequivocal on that point."

I'll go with that for now. So far they've been consistent.

****

So? What's The Hold Up?
If the story is accurate, then why no news yet? If rove was indicted on Friday, and Fitzgerald gave him 24 "Business" Hours, then how come 3 days have now passed with no word from Fitz?

How come rove gets to give his speeches, go to Capitol Hill, and do all the evil stuff he does, if he's already in deep trouble? I would think Fitzgerald would want to keep him from acting completely innocent at this point, if in fact he wasn't.

****

Gee, That Sounds Familiar....
No, really, I have proof, but its top super duper secret

Dubya called. He wants his excuse back.

****

There's still hope for humanity Herbie...it's slim though

Lurker

Er, Jim E. said earlier in this thread the following:

"Given that you and Leopold likely have the same exact high level sources on this story, I would say "yes" in answer to your question. You earned the scoop as much as he did! (As in, guessing which Wed or Friday you think something will happen.)"

So Tom and Loopold having the same exact high level sources and Tom having predictions????

Tom's not telling us!

Lurker

Oh, a TO poster said the following:

"24 business hours = 3 days
24 business hours equals 8 hours on regular M-F workdays. From last Friday, Rove had until end of business (5 p.m.?) Wednesday before his 24 business hours were up. Given that, I didn't expect anything before Thursday, the 18th."

Somebody's math is off....

windansea

do all the evil stuff he does

heh! this poster is so cuddly...

Syl

The fact that he falsely identified himself as a London reporter seems not to bother any of his supporters, does it?

Nor the fact that somebody pretending to be a London reporter should have at least a smidgen of a British accent.

Not only sleazy but dumb.

MayBee

You know my favorite Leopold moment? A few weeks ago, he posted here (and on another blog- where was that?) saying horrible things about clarice and Patrick R. Sullivan.

In each of those posts, he included a link to his book.

I find that hilarious. It is also pretty telling ("once again," he said in an interview this week, "the story has become about ME.")

Lurker

Not only sleazy and dumb but he will do it again.

Hayden's interrogation will most likely be the top news for tomorrow WRT NSA phone data base and Terrorist Surveillance program.

Austin Bay has a great post about the war against Iraq being OVER! Belmont Club says the same thing so make that 3 bloggers to declare the war is over.

MayBee

"24 business hours = 3 days
24 business hours equals 8 hours on regular M-F workdays. From last Friday, Rove had until end of business (5 p.m.?) Wednesday before his 24 business hours were up. Given that, I didn't expect anything before Thursday, the 18th."

Reminds me of my sister's shoe size story:

"My foot is a size 8, but an 8.5 is so comfortable I buy a 9"

maryrose

Perhaps Leopold is not the sharpest knife in the drawer.

Kate

I think Fitz will want to delay his indictment of Rove until next week at the earliest. He knows we'll all be counting the number of hours/days.

Good for TUM to have a backup date for next week.

Kate

TUM=TM. Rule 1: Never post right before bed.

Lurker

Rick Moran's post

Read the last paragraph:

"Whenever it happens (and I hate to inform my partisan friends but Fitzy doesn’t investigate for three years and only indict little Scooter – he needs a much larger scalp to place on his lodgepole), you can be sure that our Jason will be strutting like a peacock and crowing like a cock about how accurate he was in his reporting…even if everyone on the planet knows full well what a sorry excuse for a “reporter” he truly is."

So Fitz is looking for something big to fry?

Fresh Air

Tom--

With all due respect, you own this story, why do you risk damage to your reputation by engaging in the sordid and stupid business of prognostication?

IMO, Rove will not be indicted. My opinion is worth less than yours, but only a tad less. So stick to the analysis and let buttheads like Leopold make their outrageous predictions. Later we can grill their bellies in hell--or Sausalito.

Sara (Squiggler)

Shoot fire, we should all just pick a day of the week we think Fitz will indict and then someone from JOM can claim a scoop.

I do not think Rove will be indicted, however, I believe that more indictments are in the work as follows: Wilson, Scary Larry, Grossman, 5 as yet unnamed co-conspirators a la Libby case, and for good measure and to be sure all bases are covered, a post mortem indictment of J.Edgar Hoover.

richard mcenroe

Umm... Did Jason actually specify a year?

ordi

Windansea,

We have been contacted by at least three reporters from mainstream media - network level organizations - who shared with us off-the-record confirmation and moral support.
What are the odds these are the three reporters?

Reporter #1)Chris Matthews
Reporter #2)David Shuster
Reporter #3)Keith Oberman

Gary Maxwell

Yeah next we will be told the MSM is conspiring with the Bush Admin ( cuz they are just right wing shills ) to withhold this info from the public. And make Leopold look bad, ( Jason is it always about you?)

clarice

They're already saying that.

ordi

Here is my prediction:

If/when Fitz closes shop WITHOUT an indictment of Rove, the left will be saying it is a WH cover-up and the MSM is withholding info from the public that would allow the KosKids and Leo"tard" to prove it.

Gary Maxwell

What my parody worhty of Scappleface is legititmate lefty talking point. They are beyond ridicule.

Sir Humphreys is a Leopold sceptic..recites his prior history..notes how much he made on Tradesports betting against those Rove will be indicted bettors until Tradesports yanked the trades and offers this test:

OJ's wife's killing was Cowlings, no wonder the case (and the gloves) didn't fit.

Maybe there's a lesson here, libby and Cheney for instance?

Who's hands are smaller?

Clarice,
Oh please, the USAT article isn't false, - BTW, no one in the Congress or the WH has denied it.

It would be more accurate to say that the execs don't want to be sued, vs Qwest, so they're doing a more serious Clinton - and saying they didn't Actually hand over customers records... they just let the NSA Take the customer data!

I'm looking forward to the day when Republicans (conservatives!) get Really Honest about this Administration. I don't think these "leaders" are unconscious, just horribly devoted to their power-lust/dependency/greed. The surrender of the Republican majority to CYA stupidity.

Let's pretend that a BJ is a threat to our security... take the Time Warp Again.

Bell South said they couldn't even find anyone who'd talked to USA Today. I think the paper took "no comment" as confirmation of a bum leak.

It sounds like USAT got the plot more or less right, but the players totally wrong. The long-distance carriers are the more likely participants.

I'm pretty sure it was a sting.

Well, one thing is for sure...Larry sure clamed up after his Wilson blitz.

clarice

I wonder if that was a sting, too? Or if a pack of liars just got caught. I'm beginning to think Leo's "sources close to the investigation" is a receptionist in an office near Luskin's whose a member of MoveOn..But Larry and Wilson's (if there is one) might have stung them for some reason..Maybe their source was deliberately fed false information).

topsecretk9

also...pretty sure Rove had a screamer up with NYT's link on Libby the night before...just saying.

topsecretk9

sure Rove? ahem...Drudge.
