Who was the mole who released this information to the press on a classified memo concerning the hijacking of Airliners before 9-11? The mole can be traced to the office of Rep Alcee L. Hastings (D-23FL). Remember FoxNews Reported today House Democrats had seen the same memo that President Bush did last August. Rep Alcee L. Hasting happens to sit on the committee for select intelligence as well as the committee for International Relations the same committee that Cynthia McKinney happens to sit remember she railed on public radio that President Bush knew the attacks 9-11 where going to take place but did not stop them. Someone if not Hastings leaked this to CBS to make Bush look foolish

They can't get over the fact Bush still won the election.

Isn't Hastings the convicted Felon Judge from Florida?
Don't they know their accusations will blow back up in their faces? Lest we forget the 8 years that got us where we are today..

Makes sense. You can never trust a impeached federal judge.

May be a Federal Crime involved. Janet Rhino's FBI would never look into anyting so politically correct as trying to harm a conservative. But if this involved inappropriate release of intelligence information, maybe John Aschroft will have different directives. Anyone read closely enough the newly passed anti-terrorism laws to know if there were a possible crime here?

I think you've got something there. And you've got access to a broadcast forum, don't you? Why don't you call Sean or O' and see if one of them is ready to have you on again?
I hope the American people will make these Democrap b@$t@rds pay come November.
Rep Alcee L. Hastings
STATE REP. ALCEE L. HASTINGS (D-FL): From the 1998 Almanac of American Politics: "He was impeached by the House of Representatives by a vote of 426-3 in 1988 and convicted and removed from office by the Senate by a vote of 69-26. The impeachment arose from allegations that Hastings conspired with a friend to accept $150,000 for giving two convicted swindlers a break in sentencing. Hastings was acquitted in a criminal trial in 1983, but the friend was convicted. In the House, the case for impeachment was made by John Conyers, senior member of the Congressional Black Caucus. Removed from the bench, Hastings was unapologetic."
Never mind, could not be him

Hastings has been attacking President Bush each chance he has been given since the election. This is his doing plainn and simply.
The clown has already been impeached as a federal judge. How cool if he could also be thrown out of the House. What next?
Hey ya, True!
Yea I say their biggest problem is that Bush won the election! I look at the red/blue Bush beat Gore map every day - it is on my frig... And they are so worried about the elections to come. You are CORRECT sir! 100% correct! They can't win on the issues, so they attack! Like a bunch of whiney two year olds! Hope all is well with you!

Time to FREEP Chris Matthews of MSNBC. MSNBC is beginning to stand for "More Sh*t, Nothing But Communism."

He was impeached, but I don't think he was convicted in a criminal court.

You look marvelous..........
Freepers this was a set up and Democrats always send members of CBC out to do their dirty work because they know The CBC can scream racism when someone questions them. Gephardt and Daschle are behind this as well.

You've nailed it. Good work.
The fact that Alcee Hastings sits on the committee for Select Intelligence (in his case, VERY select), tells us all we need to know about the state of our nation!

Was a crime committed? This current breed of RATS isn't long on History -- but, Bobby Kennedy had Jimmy Hoffa prosecuted for being in possession of stolen documents from the Senate Select Committee known as the McClellan Committee. Just ask Ted Kennedy, he'll confirm it, or someone in his office will. Or check out Bobby Kennedy's THE ENEMY WITHIN -- RFK details how he set Hoffa up with the documents just so he could have Hoffa arrested.

Imus suggested this a.m. that perhaps CBS was the first to air the leak as the administration was giving them a lot of grief over the Pearl video. Your reasoning makes sense. Good work!

Dang if this isn't the most plausible analysis to date. Good for you!
I thought the same thing to when I heard it had been leaked to CBS. I also think the attack today by the RATS smells very strongly of Hillary Clinton herself.
Not only that, but what about the fact that Clinton had Osama handed to him on a silver platter from Sudan, and Clinton REFUSED!!! How do the dems justify that??
This isn't about who knew what or when they knew it. It's about our President's popularity and the war's popularity. If they can't bring down Bush's numbers, then they'll connect him negatively to the war. It's a clever move, but like Rush said today - it won't work. People already know Clinton had the opportunity to get Osama and didn't.
Did you notice that Dashel wasn't at the presentation today for former President and Mrs. Reagan? They said he was at a memorial at Arlington. My thoughts were he couldn't face Bush; and Bush didn't want to be in the same room with him. I didn't see Gephardt.

Alcee Hastings, an impeached Florida judge.
Cynthia McKinney, who believes the "mother wheel" in space is coming to get her some day.
What do they both have in common? Both are members of the Congressional Black Caucus.
I posted on another thread that McKinney was the "trial balloon" for the "Bush knew" theory, and that anyone who tried refuting her would be called a racist.
Now your analysis which reveals that Hastings and McKinney serve on the same committee, and she could've been fed, or had access to, some internal memo.
Gotta tell ya, you're brilliant. Good job!
There was another post this morning about Gephart blasting Bush for prior knowledge of 9/11.A reporter pointed out that House democrats were briefed,too.Gephart changed his tack.This will be in the news for a couple of days and fade away just like Enron......I hope. The dems have shown us that they will do anything to discredit the Administration.
Gephardt couldn't be present, according to his flunkies, because he had to attend to a "flood in St.Louis"......what that short, lite-headed RAT did to help the "flood" in St. Louis is beyond me......
I wondered who it was. I am shocked to hear that it would be a bitter Liberal from FLA....I mean that is way out of left field.
CBS is still harking on it.
No I did not know Daschle was not present.
Sorry, but I think it was Lieberman. Lieberman heads a committee that is looking into 9/ll. The WH released info to him that they had regarding 9/ll. The WH just released this info and right away Dan Rather got it. Hastings is not in the senate and it is the senate that is doing the investigating.

FELONS ARE NOT ALLOWED TO VOTE... WHY ARE THEY ALLOWED TO HOLD OFFICE?
Hastings was a corrupt local official so he decided that made him qualified for the Beltway. I am not from S. Florida but I believe there was more than one criminal count. I think this was before FR but you could probably do a search here or google for a bio or news stuff on him.
It's my guess that the dems had a pow wow a month ago and this plan was set in Motion about three weeks ago. Each dem had a part to play as this has been ongoing since the McKinney accusations. That was extreme by design so that their "concern" would not seem so political as her accusations. The leaker was probably told when to leak on cue. They think strategy MEANS a big buildup but they forgot that there is NO SUBSTANCE HERE. We are in a real war and they are still at war re: the Algor in Fla.
By the way, Georgia and Florida congresscritters probably see each other a lot. Are McKinney and Hastings in the same body?
Lieberman is too easy of a target to figurre it out. It was Hastings because if Hastings is exposed what could the Republicans do about it? Run someone against Hastings!!! Just think here for a minute when it comes down to sling mud at Republicans President The CBC is always employed by Democrats to do it because they can use race as a cover something Joe Lieberman can't do and he was backing off today. Does not make sense to leak this and back off on it. Hastings is the mole because he can use his skin color as a cover.
The bigger question is who else knew of the President's plan to take on and take out Osama and Co.? There is evidence that the attacks were moved up. Were any of the intellegence committees briefed on the President's plan? We know that a few Dems are hard wired into radical Islamic groups. Dissemination of information like this among those groups could have worked its way to one or more of the participants and could have changed the time table for the attack.

McKinney's Donors all have terrorist ties.
Why wouldn't Hastings have released it sooner then. It just hits me as odd that after the WH released the memos to the senate is when this story broke. I have not heard that the House was having an investigation only the senate.

One of the congresscritters announced that TD was at a VFW event or something like that. Oh, yeah, that was Harry Reid from November. He sounded like he knew the Reagans.
Damn straight!!! Another elected criminal!!! grrrrrrrr

I demand that McKinney be removed from the intelligence committee or any other committee receiving confidential security briefings. She is funded by terrorists groups and if the Democrats do not take her off these committees - she and they are responsible for any future terrorist attacks on us.

I may be wrong , but if I'm correct he would be the only person to be impeached serving in two different branches of government. He would be the "Frank Robinson" of political corruption.
What is interesting to me about this "revelation" is the timing as it took the Air Force One "photo" off the front page and deep sixed it over nite. Let's see what "crisis" breaks tomorrow.
The House Ethic Committee was recently taking up the complaint that The AARLC and other groupd made against McKinney concerning her on air rant about Bush know something about 9-11. It seem to be a up and shut case until this. One of the members who received our press release demanding McKinney's removal was Hastings I found out.

And why shouldn't this memo be released? Do you prefer that the government keep embarassing information secret? IMHO most classified material is so designated to cover up government malefeasance or emabarassement.
