My, my, my, my, my, my, my! It looks like our good friend Anonymous Army (Pitt's arch-nemisis and all round good guy) managed to save Pitt's raving, drunken rant to Skinner. Timing is everything! http://www.dailykos.com/story/2006/5/15/33446/1501.

I saw that. What a great catch. Wonder if Skinster saw it, or if not; I wonder if anyone forwarded it to him. Pitt is a pathetic drunkard.

Wheeee!

That's gonna come back to haunt him. When Truth Out the Window is shown to be full of b.s., I think we can fully expect to see Pitt's tombstoning ceremony.

Classic Drunken Will pitt claiming Joe Wilson is a source for Turthout. The more I think about it, it is very important. If true, Joe Wilson is willing to be loose lipped with any mediocre LW blogger news punk. Just another confirmation for me that JOE WILSON was the one who leaked his wifes identity.

Also, note the ego fully on display.


this must be posted in case it gets scrubbed

Home from the pub Will Pitt lets slip Joe Wilson is Leopold's source......

AnonymousArmy's diary :: ::
The first part is DU owner Skinner's thoughts on Peter Daou's take on Leopold. (link in link)

So Pitt in all his credible glory rips into him...

I think Daou pretty much nails it. Jason Leopold and Truthout have stuck their necks waaaaaaay out there on this one. If they end up being wrong, then they will do it spectacularly and publicly. I cannot imagine that they would stick their necks out this far unless they believed that their story was airtight. But damn, right now they are out there all alone on this one. I find it very hard not to be skeptical. They must be sweating bullets over there at Truthout. They put it all out there. F*cking ballsy. If they're right, they will be right spectacularly and publicly.

When this story pans out, and all the little fish try to swim home, I am going to say "Sorry, you had the chance to stand with an ally, and instead, decided to say 'I find it very hard not to be skeptical.'"

You could have asked. I would have gladly explained the inside sourcing that I cannot reveal publicly. I would have told you. Happily. I would have explained how Joseph Wilson independently verified a half dozen other sources, none of whom are connected. We had a guy **deleted**.

I'd have told you, had you asked, because you are owed that much. But sadly, no. You threw me and Jason and truthout under the bus. Publicly, because you do not have the COURAGE to stand with someone who has stood with you. You couldn't even do it silently.

This was a wheat-from-the-chaff moment, and you failed. You spend a good deal of time talking about standing strong, but you publicly fucked one man who has stood stronger for you more than any other. Name for me please the New York Times and international best-selling book, translated into twelve languages, that thanks you and your site above anything else. First and foremost.

There is one. Only one. Mine. Before my own mother, I thanked you.

Yeah, yeah, we're 'ballsy' if we're right. But you made it 100% clear that you don't think we are. You could have asked. I'd have let you in. But no, you decided to cover your own ass.

You're in the wrong business.

I am disgusted.

You are no better than the cretins who have taken control of your site.

WOW!!! That was the most INCREDIBLE POST I have ever seen Pied Piper Pitt make. Not only was it a big FU to Skinner but Pitt reveals that Joe Wilson was a source for this bogus Karl Rove indictment story. It was quickly deleted from deleted from DUmmieland but not before being copied and pasted on KOS for all posterity:

UNBELIEVABLE!!! Pitt better watch out or Skinner might retaliate by publicly revealing the identity of "Temporary Sockpuppet."

Hmmm, what does, "we had a guy **deleted**" mean? Or, did this poster or Pitt just delete whatever was there initially?

Like I said before, after reading this, I can't help but feel just a little sorry for WillPitt. Even if for some unimaginable reason this Leopold story would turn out to be spot on, and by that I mean all the dates,etc., have to match up with his reporting, Pitt still has left his poo all over the place.

Here's another interesting post from that same KOS thread:

Because it puts Joe Wilson in a potentially compromising situation politically and legally. To me, it looks like Pitt fingered Wilson exclusively as the source for Leopold's articles. I contacted him about this, and he said I could post his answer here since he isn't registered on Kos:

There are a whole crowd of sources here, which is what is maddening about this whole mess. Wilson was in the mix, as he has been, but this information came from elsewhere. I'm not going to go into it any further than that, as I hope you understand. It'll come out in the wash.
