    NEW YORK Denis Collins, the juror in the Libby/CIA leak case who delivered a post-verdict commentary for the press, spent about a decade at The Washington Post. Today, after a night on cable TV shows, he re-appears with a massive recounting of his experience at the Huffington Post blog. His story is billed as "INSIDE THE JURY ROOM: WHAT THE JURY THOUGHT, DAY BY DAY, WITNESS BY WITNESS, AT THE SCOOTER LIBBY TRIAL" by Denis Collins, Juror #9. It calls it "unedited" impressions, memories and facts. Other jurors' names are changed. The New York Times today reports that he is...

    Here's a fun contest: Can you our readers find any example of denunciations of Richard Armitage's leak of Valerie Plame's name by a) Democratic officeholders or b) MSM columnists or c) left-wing bloggers? I did some Google searching this evening and came up pretty much blank. So here's the paradox: We hear on the one hand that this leak represents a cloud over the vice presidency - a scandal - a threat to national security - possible grounds for impeachment. And then on the other hand: not one word of condemnation of the person who actually did the leaking! Here...

    WASHINGTON (AP) - Former White House press secretary Ari Fleischer leaked the identity of a CIA operative to Washington Post reporter Walter Pincus during a 2003 phone call, Pincus testified Monday as the first defense witness in the CIA leak trial. Pincus was one of the first reporters to learn the identity of Valerie Plame, the wife of former ambassador and prominent Iraq war critic Joseph Wilson. Pincus said he learned her identity July 12, 2003 but did not immediately write about it. Plame was outed by syndicated columnist Robert Novak two days later. Pincus testified on behalf of Vice...

    Listening to the full Woodward tape of Under Secretary of State Richard Armitage leaking the news about Plame must be giving Fitzgerald nightmares. CNN has posted the full tape played at the trial and it is astounding. The part that got me was when Armitage said “His wife named him”, and Woodward asks, “Why doesn’t this get out?”. Then Armitage says, on June 13th 2003, basically what Andrea Mitchell would say months later when she was talking off the cuff on CNBC. Armitage laughingly says “Everyone knows”. In the words of Mitchell. MURRAY And the second question is: Do we...

    WASHINGTON - Three prominent journalists testified Monday that Bush administration officials volunteered leaks about a CIA operative, as I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby's attorneys sought to suggest he was not responsible for exposing her. The jury in Libby's perjury trial heard a 66-second snippet of one of the deep background interviews given to Washington Post editor Bob Woodward for use in one of his books. They also saw a parade of Pulitzer-prize winning journalists discuss who did and did not leak the information that set off a scandal and ultimately brought Libby to trial. Woodward, who never wrote about Plame, and...

    In a 2004 interview, former President Ford said he wouldn't have gone to war in Iraq. Ford told Bob Woodward of The Washington Post that he "very strongly" disagreed with President Bush's reasoning. Ford asked that the interview be held until after his death. Ford was also critical of Vice President Cheney -- his White House chief of staff -- and then-Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, who also served as Ford's chief of staff and later was his secretary of defense. The former president said the two "made a big mistake" in pushing weapons of mass destruction as a justification for...

    For the last couple of years, Bob Woodward, the renowned Washington Post investigative journalist who became famous for breaking the Watergate scandal, has been in a bad mood. You see, when he attended those liberal cocktail parties on New York's Upper East side there were people who didn't think Woodward's liberal credentials were still in good standing after his two books on George W. Bush. Woodward presented Bush in what some say was a positive light and this kind of thing doesn't set well with the Manhattan crowd who sees the president as the incarnation of the anti-Christ. Well, perhaps...

    [SNIP] Mr. Woodward has been that amazing thing, the boring fabulist. The Bush White House has spent the past five years thinking they could manage him. Talk about a state of denial. Now he has thwarted me. I bought "State of Denial" thinking I might have a merry time bashing it and a satisfying time defending the innocent injured. But it is a good book. It may be a great one. It is serious, densely, even exhaustively, reported, and a real contribution to history in that it gives history what it most requires, first-person testimony.

    The Yin Yang symbol from Chinese Philosophy represents opposing natural forces. Yang, literally translated, means the sun or sunny. Yin, being the natural opposition is thought to be the moon, darkness or shade. Sir Isaac Newton’s Third Law of Motion: - To every action there is an equal but opposite reaction - is an extremely pure definition of the Yin Yang symbol. While natural balance, God’s fulcrum if you will, is accepted by the mortal mind even when the opposing forces have complex dependencies like “morality” and are thusly, vague. Chinese philosophers commonly apply Yin Yang symbolism vaguely, including, among...

    Bob Woodward’s “State of Denial” got scooped on what was presented on national TV as the book’s most sensational revelation—that enemy attacks in Iraq have been escalating. The Government Accountability Office and the Department of Defense beat Woodward to reporting this information, and reported it in greater detail. The government’s open reporting on the increasing number of enemy attacks also refutes the charge Woodward made in collaboration with Mike Wallace on CBS’s “60 Minutes” on Sunday that the administration kept this “trend” secret to deceive people about how bad the war is going. Woodward writes about a May 24, 2006...

The latest salvo: "State of Denial," by Bob Woodward of The Washington Post. In it, Woodward depicts an administration locked in a virtual civil war, with Bush either out to lunch, or stubbornly in "denial" about the realities he faces....

It's the summer of 2004 and George Tenet has resigned as CIA chief: [White House chief of staff] Andy Card called [Deputy Secretary of State Richard] Armitage to see if he was interested in taking over the CIA. No, Armitage replied emphatically. "Can I ask the reason? We're disappointed." Armitage replied that he could give the reason but he would prefer not to because it might hurt Cards feelings. Card knew the problem for Armitage was Cheney and Rumsfeld. He nonetheless asked Powell if there was a way to persuade Armitage....

The State Department's disclosure Monday that the pair was briefed within a week after then-National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice was told about the threat on July 10, 2001, raised new questions about what the Bush administration did in response, and about why so many officials have claimed they never received or don't remember the warning.

Black laid out the case, consisting of communications intercepts and other top-secret intelligence showing the increasing likelihood that al-Qaeda would soon attack the United States.

BY VICTORIA TOENSING Friday, September 15, 2006 12:01 a.m. EDT Richard Armitage has finally emerged from the cover-my-backside closet, "apologizing" on CBS for keeping quiet for almost three years about being the original source for Robert Novak's July 14, 2003, column stating that Joe Wilson's wife, Valerie Plame, worked for the CIA and had suggested him for a mission to Niger. He disingenuously blames his silence on Special Counsel Patrick Fitzgerald's non-legally-based request--any witness is free to talk about his testimony--not to discuss the...

    In an article shamelessly ignoring its role in the Wilson hoax and solicitous of the leaker, the New York Times, on a holiday weekend Saturday, mentions that Richard Armitage was the source of the leak of Plame’s identity.* It focuses on whether Fitzgerald was right to continue the prosecution after he knew Novak didn’t learn about Plame from Rove or Libby, the people the paper railed against from the moment Nicholas Kristof megaphoned Ambassador Munchausen’s fabulous tale of his Mission to Niger more three years ago: WASHINGTON, Sept. 1 — An enduring mystery of the C.I.A. leak case has been...

    Professor William Woodward describes the politics of his youth as "middle of the road." Woodward says he grew up a "mainstream" Protestant in a Republican household. He was not, he said, a born protester. When some Vietnam War opponents in his generation burned their draft cards or fled to Canada, Woodward chose instead to join the Peace Corps. Like President Bush, however, Woodward says his eyes were opened on Sept. 11. "After 2001," he said, "I recognized what I thought was a government conspiracy, and so I became more active in upholding the truth and seeking the truth." A tenured...

    It's been a tragic year for ABC's "Evening News Tonight," with the death of Peter Jennings and the wounding of Bob Woodruff while reporting from Iraq, and it's looking to be a sticky, unpleasant summer for Charles Gibson, fresh in his new job as anchor of the evening news broadcast. Last week, his second in his new job, "World News Tonight" hit bottom, posting its worst viewership since the people meter era began nearly 20 years ago, averaging 7.05 million viewers, or nearly 800,000 fewer than No. 1 "NBC Nightly News." That's down 11 percent from the same week last...

    WASHINGTON - A snippet of a conversation between Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward and an unnamed source in mid-June 2003 appears to be a major focus of I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby's defense in the CIA leak case. According to a newly released transcript of last week's motions hearing in U.S. District Court, William Jeffress, one of Libby's attorneys, is focusing on three words — “Everyone knows it.”

    Word out of the Defense Intelligence Agency and law enforcement sources has the FBI and the Department of Justice comparing notes and dates on who in the U.S. Senate received national security briefings on both the overseas terrorist prisons and the NSA overseas terrorist monitoring programs, and when those briefings took place. "The number of Senators who received briefings is not as large as people think," says one law enforcement source. "These were programs with a limited 'Need to Know" list on Capitol Hill." Federal investigators looking into the leaks of both those programs to the press are zeroing in...

    Rockefeller Feeling the Heat? - Friday, February 24, 2006 @ 10:33:34 AM So Sen. Jay Rockefeller sent a letter to Amb. John Negroponte complaining about White House leaks to Bob Woodward. Why would Rockefeller be so uptight? Perhaps because he senses the FBI is locking in some of his loyalists in the NSA and overseas prison leaks? Things are going to be getting interesting for a number of folks on Capitol Hill in the coming days. Posted By: The Washington Prowler

    WASHINGTON (AP) - Lawyers for a former top White House aide charged in the CIA leak investigation said Thursday the prosecutor should surrender a wide range of information about news organizations and their reporters, including The Washington Post's Bob Woodward. Special Counsel Patrick Fitzgerald has failed to disclose information that would enable the vice president's former chief of staff, I. Lewis ``Scooter'' Libby, to properly defend himself, his attorneys argued in papers filed with U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton.
