Jill Carroll Released - But from what? - II

Continuing the Jill Carroll saga. No, this isn't an "apology". Questioning is what I've done for a living for many years. If something smells funny it usually means I've cut one, or a skunk is running about. I know my smell, this smells like a skunk - sue me.

Now a few thoughts....

First, let the self-righteous and correcting bloggers stand down. Contrary to popular opinion, challenging the story is good journalism. In fact some did and still do.

By the way, the Kurtz article, howbeit written before Carroll's retraction, still brings up many interesting questions.

Again, the CVSA analysis I hope to have done in the next few days of the video will give some more insightIn my opinion, and from what I've learned over the last two days those jumping on the "Yay Jill" bandwagon might want to get retractions prepared.

Secondly, I'm perfectly willing to give her the benefit of the doubt, except for the fact that it is confirmed that she did resist intitial contact with military officials (a point she denies). She only cooperated once she was 'convinced' by some ops that resistance was futile. I do find it interesting that her statement came so quickly and so "well done" on the heals of her previous statements. Not that I question the recanting, but the timing is interesting.

I also find it interesting that people would find it 'offensive' that someone would question the political views of Jill. Others that have found that questioning important when dealing with others, While still othersfind it unimportant now. A point I find interesting.

Nevertheless...

Then there is still the subject that if she was being held, then held by whom? As the fact is that three of here captors have been in Iraqi custody since January. Word is that they have an entirely different story of events than what was put out, and that her whereabouts were entirely acknowledged since that time.

So before everyone organizes the parade and stikes up the band, I'm continuing to talk with those who DO know something about the circumstances. I'm here to tell you, at this point all is not as it seems.

More balanced thoughts at Blogs for Bush.

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…

Monday Morning Intelligence with Kool Aid and the NY Times - UPDATE

Followup to previous post.

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…
