Rocky Mountain High

Just when I though Senator Rockefeller would lay low, he opens his trap and more studid things flow forward. During today's hearings with National Intelligence Director John Negroponte, Senator Blabber-Mouth:

"Sen. Jay Rockefeller of West Virginia, the senior Democrat on the panel, told Negroponte it was unacceptable that the White House refused to share information on its warrantless eavesdropping program with anyone except for the chairman and ranking Democrat on the intelligence committee.

“What is unique about this one particular program among all the sensitive programs that justifies keeping this committee in the dark?” he asked.

It was a reference to the National Security Agency’s much-discussed monitoring program. Approved by President Bush, it has allowed the agency to monitor — without warrants — the communications of people inside the country whose calls or e-mails may be linked to al-Qaida.

Up to now, only eight members of Congress have been officially apprised of its existence. Warrantless eavesdropping on U.S. citizens has raised an outcry from Democrats and some Republicans who question whether Bush overstepped his authority.

The Senate Judiciary Committee will examine the program’s legal basis at a Monday hearing featuring testimony from U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales. "


Well Senator. Why should we be telling you anything. You'll just pick up the phone and blab it to the MSM or Syria, Iran....whomever, so long as your "plan" keeps cooking.

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

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 …
