Rocke-Treason-Gate II

Usually when someone resigns they write a letter explaining the reasons for their resignation.

Except when you are Judge James Robertson:

"U.S. District Judge James Robertson, one of 11 members of the secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, sent a letter to Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. late Monday notifying him of his resignation without providing an explanation."

Now according to the WAPO, two "sources" say:

"Two associates familiar with his decision said yesterday that Robertson privately expressed deep concern that the warrantless surveillance program authorized by the president in 2001 was legally questionable and may have tainted the FISA court's work.

Robertson, who was appointed to the federal bench in Washington by President Bill Clinton in 1994 and was later selected by then-Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist to serve on the FISA court, declined to comment when reached at his office late yesterday."


To which the WAPO makes the jump that he must have resigned in protest. To which I say, "Bull Crap!"

Folks, the WAPO, and the rest of the MSM would like to think that we are all morons that hang on their every word of "explaination" and "insight". But not I, you're Mac Ranger, who says, "Who in the hell are you jiving with this kosmik debri?"

If Judge Robertson was so 'passionate' about his beliefs, he could have so stated his reasons himself. He wouldn't need the Washington Post to explain them to us through two 'anonymous sources'.

Judge Robertson resigned for one reason. He leaked the story to the NY Times along with Senator Jay Rockefeller. He resigned (fell on the sword) to divert the obvious questions about elsewhere. They won't.

How's that for a "jump"?

Proof? Well, we could start with the letter he wrote to Chief Justice John Roberts, I believe it falls under the FOIA. Perhaps someone could get a copy?

In anycase, the call remains, that in light of these unanswered questions that Senator Jay Rockefeller possibly, and on several occassions has been suspected of leaking, and/or conspiracy with our enemies should at least, in light of the accusations, step down from the Senate Intelligence Committee in the interest of National Security until a full investigation into his activities from 2002-present are completed.

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…

NY Times: 9/11 Commission's Staff Rejected Report on Early Identification of Chief Hijacker

Ok, I've been on the phone now for...oh, about three days, to some old chums in Tampa, checking this story out, asking questions,...etc. So far what I've heard is that IF this story is true, then those who are really in the know in the Intel world are feeling like a bunch of little red-hair step-childred.

Ed. Morissey is ready to hang the 911 Commission out to dry......mmm,

Ed, not so fast my friend.

Again, I am amazed at the vercacity the NY Times and AP is getting on this story, and from the same conservative bloggers who are normally parsing every "dot and tittle" the Times puts out. Who would think?...

Yeah, there is a lot of "anger" because of "Gorelick" fever where the blogshere and conservative media rightfully called attention to her conflict of interest while serving on the commission. But we can't let the "gotc…
