Plame Game - Paging Matt Cooper from under that rock

Clarice Feldman's new article in American Thinker examines the window formed by the reporters involved in the Plame Game. Again, "Blowback", as Libby turns the tables on the them by filing subpeonas for their records, notes, etc.

This is a brillant move by Libby's defense team as we all know that Fitz-Fizz's entire case is based on the fact that Libby's statements don't match those of said reporters thus in Fitz's mind that equals lying.

However, what is really exciting about this is the fact that the subpoenas cover a specific time frame when Joe Wilson was the toast of the MSM world.

Clarice also reminds my readers of my long time suspcions (via tips) that Matt Cooper may very well be up to his DNC credentials in this game.

"Macsmind has been saying for a long time that Cooper is on the hot seat, and I believe him more than ever after reading this pleading. Libby observes that from what we know on the public record Plame was clearly a topic of conversation in Time’s Washington Bureau. (Indeed, I think bureau employee Viveca Novak’s public reports of what she told Luskin, Rove’s lawyer, offer but a hint of the detail she provided, detail that should give Cooper pause to repeat his story on the stand, for I think it obvious that he is in trouble.)

Libby more than suggests this:

It is hard to believe the government’s allegation-that Mr. Libby confirmed this affiliation[of Plame with the CIA]-if not a single employee of Time took a moment to memorialize this fact. This is particularly true given that, according to Mr. Cooper, Mr. Libby’s comment about Ms. Wilson was used to support statements in A War on Wilson? [an article Cooper coauthored with Massimo Calabresi charging the Administration was smearing Wilson by disclosing his wife’s employment.] (p. 30)

Especially since Calabresi called Wilson before the Cooper and Russert talk and afterwards (p. 36.)

It gets even better:

Mr. Cooper, one [internal] email suggests, viewed Mr. Libby’s alleged comments during the call as part of a personal attack on Mr. Wilson rather than as his own notes reflect—a fact based criticism of the merits of Wilson’s claim.

Creative writing as news reporting, I take it."


Yup! Bang of a Summer!

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…
