Rockefeller, Durbin To Take Polygraphs! [The REAL "Culture of Corruption"...!]
Strata-Sphere.com ^ | 4/22/2006 | A.J. Strata

Posted on 04/22/2006 10:48:05 AM PDT by KentTrappedInLiberalSeattle

Mac Ranger has been listening in on the internal investigation regarding the leaks of the criticial Terrorist Surveillance Program run by the NSA and the CIA programs to transfer suspected terrorists into US custody. The focus is coming down on two heavy weight Democrat Senators: Rockefeller and Durbin.

This source expands on the Washington Post story and confirms some of Mac Rangers information that these two US Senators (and their staff) may be facing polygraph tests.

During the Bush Administration, a nexus of politicians, government workers and members of the news media have worked overtime in leaking classified information. From the secret terrorist prisons to the National Security Agency’s super-secret surveillance program, intelligence officials and the Bush Administration have had to watch their counterterrorism efforts neutralized for political reasons.

Special agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation recently interviewed dozens of employees at the CIA, the NSA and other intelligence agencies as part of an intense and wide-reaching investigation. Many employees who possess security clearances at the CIA, FBI, the Justice Department and other agencies received letters from the Justice Department forbidding them from discussing even unclassified intelligence programs.

But people such as former deputy-undersecretary of Defense Jed Babbin don’t think the Justice Department investigators and prosecutors have the guts to indict a US senator. Babbin said it would cause a battle royal on the Hill, if not a constitutional crisis.

He did say however, that any senator or Congressional staffer that holds a security clearance can be asked at any time to take a polygraph. The individual can of course refuse to take the test, but failure to do so is reason to remove that person’s security clearance. Babbin further said that Senators Rockefeller, Durbin, and Wyden, and some on their staffs will soon be requested to take polygraphs.

Senators and their staff may refuse, but they will also lose their clearances and are still exposed to criminal prosecution. And if the word leaks out these people did refuse it is over for the Democrats. The Democrat staffers will not hold a united front here - they aren’t paid enough, are treated like garbage and are not idealogues. The squeeling must be intense right now as the rats jump ship. And I think this will expose a rift in the Democrats between the honest statesman and the do-anything-to-win pols.

But it’s not only the Bush Administration that is frustrated with all the leaks and news stories. Recently Congresswoman Jane Harman (D-CA) said straight out that the New York Times, which ran a frontpage story on the top secret NSA spy program, should be prosecuted for their actions.

Some news stories have pointed fingers at Senator Jay Rockefeller (D-WV), co-chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, as a possible leaker. Others cited sources that pointed to senate staffers. Still others believe that liberal politicians in both parties are secretly leaking information to the news media for political reasons.

If I was a Democrat I would not want to be on the wrong side of Jane Harmon. She exemplifies credibility and seriousness about national security. I end in noting the credentials of this author:

Jim Kouri, CPP is currently fifth vice-president of the National Association of Chiefs of Police.

This is why all the Bush & Condi leak stories have been coming down the pike. An preemptive attempt at moral relativism by the Dem treasonists.

"This is why all the Bush & Condi leak stories have been coming down the pike."

It has been called a Leak. It was declassifed by the President or Vice President per authority.

Thus, no LEAK, except as you point out, by the "moral relativists"!

Oath Required By The Constitution And By Law To Be Taken By Senators:

"I, A__ B__, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God."

(5 U.S.C. 3331.)

No one is immune from investigation and possible prosecution for leaking any material critical for the national defense. That includes intelligence services and information obtained by whatever means from intelligence services.

Yes, this must include members of the administration and members of the opposition...

Why would it be a constitutional crisis to indict senators? I suppose Justice could insist on the senate disciplining its own on an or else basis. But I see no reason to think that they would be immune from prosecution. The idea that the justice department is purely political is a slur on all of the career professionals from both parties who work there.

I would object to the statement that "The Democrat staffers will not hold a united front here - they aren’t paid enough, are treated like garbage and are not idealogues." Didn't Chuck the Schmuck's staffer, that Weiner girl take a bullet for Lt. Gov of Maryland's illegal credit check? They march in lock-step and they're very idealogical.

The New York Times says of Mary O. McCarthy
"SHE BE under criminal investigation

Will the Times say of Rockefeller, "HE BE under criminal investigation"?

Ditto. There is a steady exchange of staffers and special interest poobahs going on all the time.

LOL. I guess the Times caught on to their mistake...They've changed the article, and corrected the phrase "she be under criminal investigation" to read

she may be under criminal investigation.

Thank you for acknowledging my post and now we wait for the MSM to catch up, then the feeding frenzy will begin.

Anyone know the line up for the TV talking heads tomorrow? That may our first clue.

We looked for movement, launches, logistics in all those tedious hours, days and years. Our jobs, our youth and our indoctrination to the ways of the world.

Tactics prove strategy.Pussy footing around doesn't benefit the success of the Republic . Strong methods are required or this country will belong to the Clinton mob and it's faithful following..But though there are signs lately that Justice is moving and the administration is responding to an ever increasing internal betrayal and dissent, it's pace is being overwhelmed by the slanderous media.

The Bush administration has two year left to act...and act on lingering seditious crimes that have occurred to undermine the direction of the country.

Just a rant.

I think that GW and his people have been acting on this for a long time.

Now was the time to pull out that joker in showdown poker. The rest of the cards are in GW's hands.
