The dying NSA story and the Hillary Factor

Sorry Kos Kids, you can stick a fork in the NSA story. It's dead.

On To Meet the Press roundtable today, Roger Simon said in reference to the NSA 'scandal':

"One more point on that. Unlike past administrations, notably the Nixon administration, there’s no evidence that the Bush administration has used this warrantless surveillance for political purposes. When the president says, ‘I’m doing this to protect the United States of America, there’s no evidence that he is in any way prevaricating. And that is why, I think, so many people are saying, as Kelly pointed out, ‘Well, I don’t talk to al-Qaeda every night, so let them tap my phones all they want to.’ And as long as this remains a genuine attempt to prevent another terrorist attack on the United States, I think the president is going to skate on this."

Well before one can "skate", you would have to say something wrong has been done. There is no evidence of that either. But while the MSM and their constituents on the moonbatty left continue to see visions of 72, the NSA issue is for all intents and purposes a dead issue. If for no other reason that 2008 and who is running for President.

The fact is that the last President who used warrentless wiretapping for much more than just political purposes was not President Nixon, but President Clinton.

Now with Hillary Clinton the decided "front runner", yet aquiring a recent case of "hoof in mouth" disease, she can ill afford to have this story on the front burner for long. The last thing she needs is people talking about those darn FBI files again. You know that the MSM for the most part lives and breathes with anticipation of a a Hillary Clinton Inauguration.

Subsequently, you can begin to kiss this story bye-bye.

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.

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 …
