Good thinking, Dave. Makes the process less confusing and more efficient working from one side!

Just to remind you that Sandy Berger has yet to be sentenced. The hearing is in September.

With a big T branded on their forehead, if they survive the fun and games like keelhauling and walking the plank, we will be able to recognize them on the street and on Sunday TV Screaming Head shows.

"The Rats knew this was coming since Dec 2004. The current Rove stuff is their way of insulating themselves against a very serious leak charge, by making a big deal about a very minor leak charge,"

You are probably right on target with your comments above.

Despite your mistrust of the source, these Senators did reveal highly classified information (in order to scuttle the program) and they ARE under investigation.

I wonder if the Democrats simply became complacent about believing that Republicans would never stoop to their own tactics. They convinced themselves that they could undermine national security, leak top secrets, and steal national archives with impunity, while simultaneously accusing Republicans of outing spies and lying about intelligence.

Damn shame and SERIES!! The RATS are playing to kill while the pubs are shooting spitballs at the RATS....how discouraging! They should have disgraced Durbin and Rockefeller on the senate floor sometime ago. But for the life of me I don't understand why our side always let's the rats get away with out paying the price. They depend on us, the voter, to do their dirty job for them!! I'm sick of it! GROW A FREAKIN SPINE, that's why we elected you!! :(

We should start looking for "what ever they are accusing us of doing" as the criteria for what's up with them.....It's part of a mental disorder....transference....Goes right along with denial=lying.

It's the usual strategy .. "everybody does it - what's the big deal". They're hoping that the public will be outraged enough over Rove that when it turns out the dems did worse .. the public will yawn.

So the release of the NAME of a WELL-KNOWN in the open CIA AGENT is a cataclysmic event but revealing details about TOP SECRET black ops is relagated to being reported by NEWSMAX??

All the while the MSM calls for the head of KARL ROVE and prepares it's followers of doom and gloom for the end of western civilisation!

If this weren't Newsmax I'd be happier about it. NewsMax always misinterprets articles and press releases and publishes them as inflammatory news articles.


Really?

If you look for some of the articles on Plame, you'll see a few people did bring up the comparison. They not only outed the planes as CIA, the people's photographs were shown.
I'll try and find it.

I will glady ready them if you find them...

strange, isn't it that the Media and other dems aren't demanding those that outed that CIA secret, be fired, or impeached or whatever?

I read in the Hill website last night that the Ethics Committee is supposed to release its findings regarding Sen. Shelby's alledged leaking of classified info, in 2001!!!!

At that rate of speed, none of these idiots that have done anything will ever have to pay consequences...but let a rumor about any one in the Bush Administration, and you would think they gave the combination to a lock that houses the "red phone"!!!!

It NUTS I tell ya, NUTS!

And don't forget Senator Leahy's leak that caused the death of a CIA operative.

These senators need to PAY...liberally..if the leaking of this sophisticated black-ops operation may cause us to lose HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS in investment, as the article states, then WHY CAN't WE HOLD THESE SENATORS RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS? Make them surrender their salaries to the American people until the debt is paid! lol NO PENSIONS.....DISMISSAL....and a great deal of SHAME is what they deserve.

I have done an exhaustive search .. using their names every which way .. I can find no other item stating this investigation. Hopefully, the story will flesh out soon if it's true and be made public. Would DOJ make public their investigations? I would think they would .. but maybe I'm wrong.

So, not having read all the posts on this thread . .. it's a leak from Babbin, who contributes to The American Spectator.

TAS contributing editor Jed Babbin served as a deputy undersecretary of defense in the George H.W. Bush administration. He writes the "Loose Canons" column for TAS Online and often appears as a talking warhead on television and radio. He is the author of Inside the Asylum: Why the UN and Old Europe are Worse Than You Think.

From Lilek's Screedblog-
You may recall the story. The xx ran big piece on a charter airline the CIA was using to transport suspects. This isn’t just outing a covert operative; it was outing a covert operation. In the case of Wilson / Plame, we had an attempt to point out how two opponents of the adminstration were trying to thwart the foreign policy of the US government via the pages of the NYT and Vanity Fair; in the case of the airline, we had an attempt to peel back the Tupperware lid of secrecy of an anti-terrorist organization in order to ruin – I’m sorry, let the people know what they needed to know about the operation. Did anyone wonder whether the families of the people in that charter airline might be harmed in anyway? Did anyone wonder whether this information might compromise attempts to interrogate suspects? Did anyone ask what the devil was served by running this story?

Imagine the war was prosecuted by a Democratic administration; imagine a GOP operative blowing the charter airline’s cover to make a point about billing irregularies. Imagine the GOP operative slipping photos of the planes on the tarmac, tailfin numbers visible, to the press.


-------

If you search about "CIA" and "planes" you'll get lots of stories. Unfortunately alot of them are lefty sites pointing out how evil the CIA and Bushco are.

The (original) story is more than a week old.

It's unusual that there has been no more about it anywhere.

Maybe someone knows more about it?

You KNOW the MSM will have to be dragged kicking and screaming .. I'm just wondering how substanitive this Babbin's info is .. he says they don't know if they're going to pursue it yet .. that means someone in DOJ is leaking to him. Jeeeesh ... all our agencies have some pretty loose lips .. where's their oath to confidentiality and secrecy anymore? The whole town is awash with leakers, except for the White House ... it's truly a snake pit and swamp.

Next we'll be hearing about the bad apples at DOJ .. along with the CIA and FBI .. all these disgruntled, prissy, pouting civil servants who are way past their prime and devotion to their country. What a sad state of affairs.
