This is Pelosi on CNN

This is a bit from Kyra Phillips interview with Nancy Pelosi on CNN:

"I want to ask you, as you stand here and continue to criticize the administration and criticize the director of FEMA, I do want to tell you the White House coming forward today, Scott McClellan coming forward today, basically disputing your accounts of your meeting with the president. I'm looking at it here. It's saying that you said you urged the president to replaced the embattled FEMA director because of the poor emergency response to Hurricane Katrina, but McClellan says that that's not what you discussed with the president. You were discussing other things with the president, and that things are being twisted here a bit."

PELOSI: Oh, that's absolutely not true. Uh, Mr. McClellan wasn't there, so he couldn't possibly know. What happened was I said to the president, "Mr. President we can begin to help these, uh, victims of Katrina (sniff) become whole again. The first thing you can do is to uh, replace Michael Brown as the head of FEMA." To which the president said, "Why would I do that?" And I said, "Because of what happened last week and the failure of FEMA to be the real link between the federal government and the people in need in our country, the social compact." To which the president said, "What didn't go right last week?" That's what happened in the meeting. I stand by that. If the president thinks everything went right last week, and he wants to keep Michael Brown there, then I think that's going to be a cost to the American people in lives and livelihood.

PHILLIPS: And I think it's unfair that FEMA is just singled out. There are so many people responsible --

PELOSI: Right.

PHILLIPS: -- for what has happened in the state of Louisiana.

PELOSI: That is true and I'm sorry that you think it's unfair but I don't. I think it's unfair that people lost their family members, their lives, their livelihood, their homes, their opportunity, uh, and FEMA, uh, uh, is -- did a poor job. It had no chance, it was.

PHILLIPS: But what about all those warnings --

PELOSI: May I please respond?

PHILLIPS: What about all the warnings from the Army Corps of Engineers years ago --

PELOSI: No!

PHILLIPS: -- saying there's a problem with these levees, there's a problem with these cities?

PELOSI: Myra, Myra, Myra...

PHILLIPS: It's Kyra.

PELOSI: If you want to make a case for the White House --

PHILLIPS: It's Kyra.

PELOSI: -- you should go on their payroll.

PHILLIPS: I'm not making a case for the White House by all means, believe me."


It's amazing isn't it, when Democrats are asked real questions - isn't it.

AJ over at the Strata-Sphere has a hilarious example of when the public throws that reporter bias right back. Hilarious!

Calling Mr. Fitzgerald?

**UPDATED AND BUMPED****

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

UPDATE II: Looks like I owe my source big time as yet another tip comes true as the Washington Post is on the target list as well for the CIA Prison leak.

Is the lid about to be blown off Able Danger?

Those who have been wishing for a full blown Able Danger investigation are about to get their wish. The "gate" has been unlocked.

9/11 Iraqi Connection

With Democrats calling for yet more investigations into pre-war intelligence, and Republicans like myself pushing back to help their 'sudden amnesia”, the growing stories of Able Danger and even China Gate, are beginning to make news.

The three main theories about why Able Danger hasn't gotten out of the "blog stage", are 1) To hide Clinton era responsibility for stopping the 9/11 attacks, and/or 2) To hide the truth behind China-Gate, or 3) The facts show that there in fact was a direct link between Iraq and 9/11.

Taking either one you can see why the Clinton worshipping MSM for the most part hasn't touched the story. Of the later point, Democrats, the MSM and even some of our investigations state that there was no 'direct' link between Iraq and 9/11. Say otherwise and the MSM will slice and di…

Able Danger - Pulling Back the Covers of the real Clinton Legacy

First, let's dispense with the bull crap. The meeting between Mohammed Atta and Iraqi Intelligence officer Al-Ani, on April 8th, 2001 happened.

Yet, just don't mention it to the MSM, becaue since May of 2002, the MSM declared an all out assault on the story. A meeting incidently, that the Czech government has to this date stood by.

Let's review a little history:

October 13, 2001: Story of the meeting is leaked from somewhere in the Czech foreign service.

yet.....

October 20, 2001: Ny Times, John Tagliabue writes a story citing other Czech officials said the meeting never took place.

so.....

October 26, 2001: Czech Minister of the Interior, Stanislav Gross has a press conference not only confirming the orginal report but giving further details of Atta's other trip to Prague in June 2000.

then.....

October 27, 2001: The NY Times "recants" the October 20th denial.

The story continues it's oddessy of 'back and forth' until May 1st, 2002, when Walter P…
