    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...
  • Woodward adds twist to CIA leak case ~ Armitage tape at CNN reveals truth of Plame exposure

    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...

    You've got to hand it to Mortuary Bob. Nobody interviews the newly dead like he does. He doesn't always interview his subjects after they die. Sometimes, like the late Bill Casey, they're merely in a coma. John Belushi was somewhere between La-La Land and oblivion. Mortuary Bob's shovel is always showing up in unexpected places, and sometimes the mud on his boots leaves marks on the carpet. Nevertheless, he has grown sleek and rich dispensing nuggets -- little muddy clods, actually -- from the great beyond. He can coax usually inarticulate subjects to speak in whole sentences, arranged in neat...
  • Ford Was Against Going to War in Iraq (Woodward Couldn't Wait To Spew)

    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...

    All his usual formalities of perfidy were observed with scrupulous technique. -Winston Churchill on Hitler’s Invasion of Russia Washington offers numerous opportunities for high officials bent on undermining the Will of Congress, as well as the Chief Executive and his explicit, lawful directives. Richard Armitage, as we now know, ignored an express Presidential Directive in the Plame investigation when he failed to notify the White House that he was the source of the leak to Bob Novak.

    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...

    John Kerry Presses for Foreign Relations Committee Hearings on Iraq Revelations in “State of Denial” Washington -- In light of recent revelations about the Bush Administration’s conduct of the Iraq War revealed in journalist Bob Woodward’s book State of Denial, Senator John Kerry today asked Senator Richard Lugar, Chair of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, to hold hearings as soon as possible on the Administration’s decision-making and responses to key intelligence. Kerry specifically asked Lugar to investigate misleading Administration statements about the current state of sectarian violence, false statements about projected levels of violence in the future, ignoring requests for...

    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 attacks of 9/11, and especially the post-Saddam Iraqi insurgencies, could have been avoided - if only that pig-headed, disengaged, overly optimistic President Bush would have listened to . . . (fill in name here). That's the message of any number of critics and new books seeking to skewer the Republican White House, just as the mid-term elections draw near. 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....

    Here's an interesting scene from Bob Woodward's new book. 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....
