Gitmo Secure, Qurans OK, Newsweek's Isokoff off to the races again.

Exclusive: A Sharp New Look at 'Material Witness' Arrests

Mr. Isokoff been a little busy. After getting his ass hung out to dry on the fake Quran story, his next 'exclusive' is about 70 "material witnesses" picked up by the FBI in the wake of 9/11 who were "victims" of a "little-known legal tactic". The Material Witness Rule.

Citing a report to be issued this week from Human Rights Watch and the ACLU, he writes:

"A report to be released this week by two civil-liberties groups finds nearly 90 percent of these suspects were never linked to any terrorism acts, resulting in prosecutors and FBI agents issuing at least 13 apologies for wrongful arrest."

....Human Rights Watch and the American Civil Liberties Union say they have assembled the most comprehensive look yet at the practice—and conclude it may have produced the most civil-liberties abuses of any post-9/11 policy. Out of the 70 "material witness" arrests the groups were able to document, only seven suspects ended up charged with terror-related crimes."

Ok, you've lost me here already Mike. Both those organizations are decidedly leftist and anti-US, anti-Israel - therefore anything they've come up with is suspect in my book.

The 'horror stories' of the sweeps conducted by the FBI in the months after 9/11 are old news. Sure there were wrongful incarcerations. But people weren't picked up for "no reason" or because they were "muslim". Give the FBI a break you dweeb, in all the hsyteria after 9/11 ONLY 70 being picked up (although they may have been more), is an astounding show of professionalism and restraint.

This isn't an "exclusive" it's a 'hit piece" another cheap shot at the administration for which Isokoff prides himself on.

Calling Mr. Fitzgerald?


As I told you about in this post yesterday as a source confirmed to me that the Justice Department has launched a probe into the NSA leak. Mr. Risen, you are in trouble - prepare your defense. I told you so.

The White House will be announcing the probe at about 12:30pm. My source tells me that this probe will most likely result in another prosecutor being assigned as of course Fitzgerald is still busy/dizzy on the Plame/Game No-Leak. Additionally, other probes into other recent leaks such as the CIA 'prisons'leak is in the works as well. As I said, this is the NEW Bush - on the attack - it's no more Mr. Nice Guy!

About time! Also covering Michelle Malkin

Newsbusters Busts the MSM on Bush Event

Newsbusters, the blog of Brent Bozell's Media Research Center, exposes the MSM attempt to spin President Bush's meeting with troops into a 'staged event'.

Truth is that the event was not staged, the troops were telling their real feelings: that they support the war and our President.

I guess they might have this story mixed up with the "planted question" to Sec. Rumsfeld back in December 2004.

Yet, that wasn't the case here, Soldiers when asked, will tell you the truth.

Just like in this picture, they tell it like it is!

Michelle Malkin has links to other reactions. Also Blogs for Bush.

UPDATE I: Michelle has a further reponse from one of the soldiers in the video. Here's an excerpt:

"First of all, we were told that we would be speaking with the President of the United States, our Commander-in-Chief, President Bush, so I believe that it would have been totally irresponsible for us NOT to prepare some ideas, facts or comments that we wanted to share …
