NSA - Cometh the leaker - and he's ......Nuts! - II

Well, just like clockwork, new Hardball talking nutcase Russ "tiny" Tice is out again and is heading to Congress:

"Russ Tice, an NSA intelligence analyst fired last January in the wake of revelations about the agency’s warrantless eavesdropping program, is finally getting his chance to tell what he says are even more explosive secrets to Congress.

Rice said that the Senate Armed Services Committee has invited him to testify sometime next week about “very sensitive programs and operations at NSA and DoD (Department of Defense) that likely have violated the law and the constitution.”

The ultra-secret NSA operations are called special access programs, or SAPs.

“The exact day next week has not been set,” Tice said. “Looks like it may be Tuesday or Friday in the Hart Senate Office Building’s Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility (SCIF) secure conference room.”

An Armed Services Committee staffer could not be reached for comment at deadline.

Tice, an intelligence analyst at NSA and, before that, the Defense Intelligence Agency, said he “conducted technical intelligence missions in these SAPs.”

Tice said what he intends to tell the committee “will include the involvement of Gen. Michael Hayden, who was the director of NSA at the time.”

Hayden is facing hearings on his nomination to be director of the CIA amid a new rash of disclosures about the NSA’s warrantless electronic surveillance programs.

Tice previously said he had met with staffers from the House and Senate Intelligence committees, but had feared disclosing details of still-secret NSA SAPs that he opposes because the staffers did not have high enough security clearances to hear them."


Tisk,.....digruntled no?

"In a letter last January an NSA official assured Tice, a self-described whistle-blower, that “you unequivocally have every right to petition Congress for a redress of grievances. This right is guaranteed to you by the First Amendment of the United States Constitution.”

But Tice, branded “paranoid” by agency doctors before he was stripped of his security clearance five months ago, making him unemployable by any intelligence agency, was warned by NSA that that he had to first provide the agency and its parent, the Department of Defense, with the information he intended to disclose and the names of people he wanted to talk to."


You'll remember that this story told us that leaky DOJ lawyers were denied clearances thus killing the probe into the NSA by Rep. Maurice Hinchey, D-N.Y?

Interestingly enough just WHO do you think has been feeding info to people like, oh, Leslie Cauley?

Like since the beginning? Who is Mr. Tipster?

Three guesses - first two don't count.

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 …
