NSA - Andrea's Magical Mystery Tour -2

Making the buzz at a lefty blog near you, this report by - hrrupmpt..."America's Blog" states that a transcript of a Andrea Michelle interview with James Risen that 'supposedly' went like this:

"Mitchell: Do you have any information about reporters being swept up in this net?

Risen: No, I don't. It's not clear to
me. That's one of the questions we'll have to look into the future. Were there abuses of this program or not? I don't know the answer to that

Mitchell: You don't have any information, for instance, that a very prominent journalist, Christiane Amanpour, might have been eavesdropped upon?

Risen: No, no I hadn't heard that."


The transcript has apparently been changed. Although reading it, I don't see the shock and awe others are seeing. First, Andrea (who's known for forming questions out of the air) throws out a question that Risen says he never heard of. Case closed.

Except for the "Bats in the Belfry" conspiracy buffs out there.

Now 'supposedly' NBC is looking into the question. Then again, they may be sending Andrea for a psychiatric eval to help her recall her "Plame Memory".

UPDATE: Then again (my cellphone bill is going to be huge) ...what IF the Gov tapped Amanpour AFTER obtaining a warrant? I mean, IF true who said this tapping was "warrantless"? Another question to mull. Who is to say (and I'm not going to confirm -although there is a hint), if Amanpour wasn't into something she ought not should have been? You know? Sometimes those "quiet little teas" make you privy to things we all really should know about.

After all who said that in the War on Terror we could absolutely trust our media? Perhaps the person to ask is Amanpour herself. Come on - where have you been?

UPDATE: Per CNN's Wolf Blitzer show, the an agency official looked into the matter for CNN and found no basis in the story. Quote" "They are just as puzzled by Andrea Mitchell's statement as we are". UPDATE**Further denial on CNN site here.

UPDATE II: Tom McGuire: "Let me help - even though Ms. Amanpour was not "targetted", as per the NSA denial, she may well have been caught up in the surveillance *IF* she received a call *from* a phone that was being monitored for AL Qaeda connections. And IIRC, that might include public phone booths in Kabul - that is where calls to two of the 9/11 terrorists originated, if memory serves. Presumably, other public phone booths are surveilled as well."

Much as I can find out, and I have been asking, this more than likely a "tale" Andrea heard at one of those Washington Life Parties she's known to frequent - quite frequently. There is NADA on Amanpour on anyone's calendar at the NSA.

Tracked with Michelle Malkin

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…
