Who leaked the NY tunnel plot?

While we're all glad the plot to bomb NYC's Holland tunnel, the real question is who leaked the eight month old (and not yet completed) investigation to the press?

Per an email tip from a reader, Colonel Randall Larsen, USAF (Ret), who according to his bio: "served for three years as the founding director of the Institute for Homeland Security and two years as the chairman of the Department of Military Strategy and Operations at the National War College", expressed on FNC during an interview this after, who he believed put up the tip:

Senator Chuck Schumer and Senator Hillary Clinton. For what reason? As Larsen put it was a recoup the recent cut of 9/11 funding.

I'm looking for the transcript of that now. That said of course we have no evidence of this, but if proved true it would blockbuster. Neither enjoy any so-called protection under the first admendment and if found guilty of leaking could be censured or removed from office.

Again, I have no word on that, but I am suspcious whenever Schumer gives a pat on the back to our intelligence:

""This is one instance where intelligence was on top of its game and discovered the plot when it was just in the talking phase." Whatever Schumer. You know if Schumer did leak, it wouldn't be the first time he was suspected of that.

One thing I do know from the few people I could talk to today that there was a leak and the FBI had to pull the wire way before the time it had to. This specfic plot was in genesis and months away from any type of completion. Additionally, the bureau is actvily looking for whoever provided the leak to the Times and who is continuing to leak ongoing investigations and programs.

For those morons who desire leaks, know that leaking isn't a game folks. It puts our agents and operatives in harms way and pulling the plug before it's time to do so can jepardize the convictions of those we catch. Additionally many investigations are tied to others and when you cut one tie, you may lose the others.

AJ Strata covered this well, and it looks like this by the American Spector was right on that dislosure of the SWIFT program has had similiar effects on other such cases.

Put it this way. Some of the field agents I've talked to are taking this "personal", that's not good news for the leakers when they catch them. Not good news at all.

UPDATE: Michelle Malkin on more bad news for the Times.

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

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…

Able Danger - Pulling Back the Covers of the real Clinton Legacy

First, let's dispense with the bull crap. The meeting between Mohammed Atta and Iraqi Intelligence officer Al-Ani, on April 8th, 2001 happened.

Yet, just don't mention it to the MSM, becaue since May of 2002, the MSM declared an all out assault on the story. A meeting incidently, that the Czech government has to this date stood by.

Let's review a little history:

October 13, 2001: Story of the meeting is leaked from somewhere in the Czech foreign service.

yet.....

October 20, 2001: Ny Times, John Tagliabue writes a story citing other Czech officials said the meeting never took place.

so.....

October 26, 2001: Czech Minister of the Interior, Stanislav Gross has a press conference not only confirming the orginal report but giving further details of Atta's other trip to Prague in June 2000.

then.....

October 27, 2001: The NY Times "recants" the October 20th denial.

The story continues it's oddessy of 'back and forth' until May 1st, 2002, when Walter P…
