    My friend Rick Leventhal, one of our best correspondents here at FOX News Channel, has a great story today about The New York Times, and he asks the question at the end: When are we going to hear an explanation from The Times? So far he hasn't got one. Here's the story: The Times evidently knew it was printing phony information in a recent story, but waiting a week to print a correction. In fact, it appears to have scheduled a correction for a week later and the only possible explanation is that reprinting the incorrect story would cost too...

    So let me get this straight: Scooter Libby is going to jail for not remembering who he told what. He didn't lie, evidently. He didn't remember right, and that is a federal crime, of course, if you happen to be speaking to a FBI agent when your memory fails. But at the same time, the same Justice Department has taken the case of a high government official who lied, who stole classified documents, who destroyed those documents, and he's walking around free as a bird. They won't even ask him to take a lie detector test to determine if he...
  • Why Bush Justice rolled over for Sandy Berger

    As I watched these events unfold two years ago, I presumed that the Bush DOJ chose not to exploit these stories for reasons of national security. Although seemingly unrelated, both of these stories lead to the same larger secret, a secret that Berger risked his career to conceal, a secret that if revealed had the potential to destabilize the nation during a time of war. As I have since learned, however, the Bush White House is not fully in control of its own Justice Department and FBI. In truth, the decision to protect Berger may have more to do with...
  • Lawmakers Want Polygraph of Berger Over Stolen 9/11 Documents

    Fox News ^ | 1-22-07 | FOX News' Molly Hooper and The Associated Press contributed to this report.
    WASHINGTON — The Justice Department should administer a polygraph test to former National Security Adviser Sandy Berger to find out what documents he took from the National Archives in 2002 and 2003, Rep. Tom Davis wrote in a letter to Attorney General Alberto Gonzales dated Monday. Davis, ranking Republican on the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, is leading a group of 18 lawmakers who say the Justice Department has been "remarkably incurious" about Berger's decision to remove documents relating to the Sept. 11 commission's inquiry into his role in helping prevent terror attacks during the Clinton administration.
  • Rockefeller 'Troubled' by Negroponte's Switch to State Department

    A top Democrat said Thursday he was "troubled" by the timing of the news that National Intelligence Director John Negroponte will assume the number two post at the State Department. Sen. John Rockefeller (D-W.Va.), vice chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said it was unacceptable for top two posts in the intelligence community to be vacant at the same time. He cited the departure last May of Gen. Michael Hayden, Negroponte's then deputy, who left to head up the CIA.

    Fox News Corp. ^ | 11-3-06 | John Gibson's My Word
    This is exquisitely rich. Today The New York Times is accusing the Bush administration of an illegal leak of secret information, which may endanger American lives. Wow. No sense of irony over there at The Times. They can leak the NSA secret wiretapping program, they can leak the Treasury Department's secret program of following terrorist money, they can leak secret memos on the progress of the war, but none of that, evidently, seems to Times editors to endanger Americans. But this latest so-called leak by the Bushies does. And worse, the so-called leak is — get this — an Iraqi...
  • Proof the Mainstream Media Is Left Wing

    Fox News Corp. ^ | 11-1-06 | John Gibson's 'My Word'
    I have long thought the mainstream media is decidedly left wing. Now there's proof. The Center for Media and Public Affairs did an accounting of the network newscasts from September 5 thru October 22 and found an overwhelming liberal bias. On the "Big Three" network newscasts, the audit showed a clear jihad against the Republican Party. Only 12 percent of election stories that aired on NBC, ABC, or CBS could be regarded as remotely "favorable" to Republicans. In contrast, as The Washington Times put it this morning, "Democrats basked in glory." The study showed that 77 percent of news accounts...

    In a world where leading Western experts have consigned Osama bin Laden and al Qaeda to near-irrelevant status, the gangly Saudi is on the verge of seeing the forces he leads and inspires knock off their third infidel government. Not bad for a guy running from rock to rock and cave to cave.

    The following is a partial transcript of the Oct. 1, 2006, edition of "FOX News Sunday With Chris Wallace": "FOX NEWS SUNDAY" HOST CHRIS WALLACE: Bill Clinton said a lot of things in our interview last week. How much of it was true? Well, we've assembled a panel of experts to discuss just that: Daniel Benjamin, a counterterrorism expert for the Clinton National Security Council; Michael Scheuer, who ran the CIA unit that hunted Usama bin Laden; and Lawrence Wright, author of a behind-the-scenes new book on the run-up to 9/11 called "The Looming Tower." We should note we invited...

    In all the hollering Bill Clinton started when he showed his roughneck followers how to fight dirty in his interview with Chris Wallace, there has been some conspicuous trifling with the facts by FOBs, friends of Bill, including one from his best friend — his wife — who already has a campaign chair for her presidential campaign when she hasn't even announced she is actually running. Look at a couple quotes, and you decide.

    On Tuesday morning, it looked like U.S. Rep. Katherine Harris was going to miss Thursday's rally in Orlando with President Bush and Republican gubernatorial nominee Charlie Crist. Harris' schedule showed her participating in votes in Washington on Thursday for a series of House votes on immigration bills and then attending a River City Republican Club function in Atlantic Beach, near Jacksonville, around the same time as the evening rally.

    FOREIGN SECRETARY STRAW: Good morning, ladies and gentlemen. It has been a very great pleasure to welcome to London Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice on her first official visit as the United States Secretary of State. And Condoleezza Rice has had a very good discussion this morning with the British Prime Minister, Tony Blair, and we too have had a very good bilateral discussion. And both the Prime Minister and I opened by congratulating Secretary Rice on her appointment and her endorsement by the Senate. In those confirmation hearings before the United States Senate, Secretary Rice said, and I quote,...

    WASHINGTON — Bucking the trend to break down walls between law enforcement agencies, the U.S. Capitol Police (search) has asked to be able to decline information requests from the executive branch. The Capitol Police insist this power is important to protect sensitive information from Freedom of Information Act (search) requests. The executive branch is subject to FOIA requests, but the legislative branch, of which the Capitol Police is a part, is not.

    PRIME Minister Ariel Sharon has lashed out at a world court ruling against Israel's West Bank barrier after Palestinian militants carried out their first deadly attack inside Israel in months. ........ "It is not without reason that the Palestinians are fighting against construction of the fence. They are well aware that completion of the fence will make it very difficult for them to continue with their acts of murder." ........ The Palestinians meanwhile decided to hold off pushing for a UN resolution against the barrier until after November's US presidential elections. "We decided that it was not wise now to...

    "She talks in a way that I think would make Howard Stern blush," says Christopher Andersen, the author of "American Evita," a Hill bio from publisher William Morrow that appears in bookstores today. Hillary Rodham Clinton may have grown up in middle-class suburban Chicago, and graduated Wellesley and Yale Law School, but she swears like a sailor and can slice up enemies with her sharp tongue. Neither Hillary nor Bill Clinton cooperated on the project. That's no surprise, since the portrait Andersen paints of the former first lady — and, he suggests, presidential wannabe — is not pretty.
