Freedom of Information Act Blog Fest

UPDATE: This post wasn't going up until tomorrow - hit the save, instead of the "saved as draft". However Patch at The Pamphleteercaught me napping, as I told you to file with the FBI (NOT!).... File your request for Wilson docs with the CIA.

Thanks Patch!

Looks like the judge in the Libby case doesn't want to play fair

"A federal judge refused on Friday to give I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby access to a wide range of information from several government agencies, saying he would not allow the former White House aide's trial in the CIA leak case to become a debate over the war in Iraq.

"You want to try the legitimacy of us going to war," U.S. District Judge Reggie B. Walton told lawyers for Vice President Cheney's former chief of staff. "I don't see how that will help us determine whether Mr. Libby lied when he talked to the FBI and went before the grand jury."

"Lawyers for Libby wanted Walton to force Fitzgerald to turn over documents from the White House, CIA and State Department about a trip that Plame's husband, former U.S. Ambassador Joseph Wilson, took at the CIA's request in early 2002 to Niger in Africa.

The CIA sent Wilson to determine whether there was any truth to reports that Saddam Hussein's government had tried to buy yellowcake uranium from Niger to make a nuclear weapon. Wilson discounted the reports. Nevertheless, the allegation wound up in President Bush's 2003 State of the Union address."

So this brings up an interesting point. Here's the plan, pass it around. All bloggers or citizens interested in finding out just who, where, when and how about Joe Wilson's jaunt to Niger in 2002, go to the CIA and file the Federal Freedom of Information Act form online. Yes, it will cost a bit (details on the site) to get the documents, but if you file as "media" there is no charge for the first 100 pages. Yes, we ARE the media.

I've had a request in for a few months now and they are definitely stonewalling (even after I asked for help). No problem, I can wait. But the more the merrier.

Get typing people!

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

Sniper Attack Las Vegas Music Festival

Police are hunting for the female companion of a lone gunman who killed at least 20 people, including two off-duty police officers, and injured more than 100 injured in Las Vegas on Sunday night.
Officers believe Marilou Danley, who they described as a middle-aged Asian woman, has more information on the man who attacked the Route 91 Harvest Festival on Sunday night before being killed.
That man was named by 9 News as Stephen Paddock, a 64-year-old man from Mesquite, Nevada, who was known to local law enforcement.
Police were reported to be searching his house in the early hours of Monday morning, though there was no indication of a motive.
The Strip was completely shut down after the man, described by police as 'a local' opened fire from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay resort and casino.
