Dana Priest - Troubling

This article on Dana Priest of the Washington Post came out on May 9th, 2006, but it details her curious ties and troubling connections. To from the article:

"She is married to William Goodfellow, a far-left political activist and current executive director of the Center for International Policy (CIP), who has been at the vanguard of many of the most rabid attacks on Bush Administration policy.

....In 2002, Goodfellow joined forces with Fenton communications—a “progressive” PR firm whose client list includes CIP, IPS,, the Heinz family foundation, the Ford Foundation, George Soros’ Open Society Institute, and an assorted host of left-leaning environmental and “human rights” groups—to fight George Bush’s “lies” and “rush to war.”

With Fenton’s help, CIP initiated the Iraq Policy Information Project (IPIP), a group of diplomats and academics opposed to the Bush administration’s Iraq policy. Among IPIP’s star speakers was former Ambassador Joseph Wilson, who became famous for writing a New York Times column attacking the rationale for the war in Iraq and whose wife, Valerie Plame, was exposed publicly as a CIA employee. It would turn out that Plame helped arrange her husband’s mission to Africa, supposedly to investigate an Iraq-uranium link, resulting in the Times piece. Both would later surface as contributors to the Kerry campaign. (Recently, the newsletter containing photographs of Priest, Wilson and Goodman at a meeting was mysteriously removed from the CIP website.)"

There is more, but reading this, should bring to mind names like Joe Wilson (who incidently get his gigs via Goodfellow), Ray McGovern, Larry C. Johnson, VIPS, among others.

I knew someone would get sloppy.....

Calling Mr. Fitzgerald?


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 …
