Show us the tape!

Via Drudge:

"ABCNEWS executives have not viewed the video footage that was being taped when anchorman Bob Woodruff was injured by an explosive in Iraq, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned.

Anchorman Woodruff and his cameraman Doug Hogt were in the hatch of a military vehicle taping footage last weekend when a bomb went off, seriously injuring both news veterans.

The war diary turned nightmare has remained in the original camera, a well-placed ABC source explained Thursday morning.

ABC executives made the controversial decision not to remove the tape from the camera.

"It is not first, second, or third thing on anyone's mind," said the insider.

The camera will be hand-carried and delivered to ABCNEWS headquarters in New York later on Thursday, from Washington, a source claims. "No one has seen what is on the tape. No one."

On whether ABCNEWS will air the footage: "It will be treated with the same standard and editorial judgment as any war footage."


Bullcrap!

Show us the footage.


ABC News and other MSM outlets had no problem airing Al Jazerr footage of other roadside bombings (over and over and over again), they shouldn't have any problem now.


What's the big freaking secret? And besides, why is this guy and his camera sidekick being treated as though the Pope had been shot?

I mean, I feel for the guy, and hope he and his partner fully recover. But come on people, he's not the first, won't be the last, and he's definely not the "best" that have been injured.

You want to know why they're holding back? My take? They can't get any anti-war traction out of this.

How's that? The key from the the NY Times story.

"They had been part of a four-member news team accompanying units of the Fourth Infantry Division and had initially been traveling in an American Army armored Humvee. But before the attack, they switched to the more lightly armored — and therefore more vulnerable — Iraqi vehicle, the network reported."

Point? They can't blame this on the US Military.

They switched to ride in an Iraq (Russian made MTLB), which is a freaking beer can on tracks. So the MSM can't blame this on the "Crappy Humvee Army" theory" that they have harped on since last year, but instead it was ole Bob - one of their own - who made a bonehead move and unfortunately for him and his camera man, they got capped for it.

Sorry for the harshness folks, but in war dumb decisions get you hurt or worse. Lesson learned.

Let's see the tape!

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…
