Two years into CIA leak probe, no charges
WASHINGTON (AP) - A prosecutor's hunt for Bush administration leakers of classified information has produced no indictments after almost two years, and legal experts say it's very possible the only person jailed will be a reporter who never wrote a story.


In pursuit of the officials who revealed a CIA officer's identity to reporters, special counsel Patrick Fitzgerald has gone to the highest reaches of the White House, interviewing President Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney and their closest aides, including deputy White House chief of staff Karl Rove.

Rove's name resurfaced in the past week, with his lawyer saying that Time magazine reporter Matthew Cooper spoke to him in the days before the name of CIA undercover operative Valerie Plame was first revealed by columnist Robert Novak. The Bush White House has denied since the issue first came up in 2003 that Rove was involved.

The outcome of Fitzgerald's investigation could depend on what Cooper tells prosecutors, who already have the Time reporter's notes and e-mails identifying a source.

1. It's because Rove's nose is firmly lodged in in Bush's colon.
That's it, plain and simple.

The BFEE...Bush Family Evil Empire...is NOT "tinfoil hat" bullshit.

It's REAL, it's CORRUPT, it's a world in which "right" and "wrong" and "good" and "evil" have NO MEANING.

It's a world in which drug addicts and alcoholics and adulterers and wife beaters can be put on a MOTHERF**KING PEDESTAL and WORSHIPED as GODS.

FUCK them all.

FUCK George H.W. "Pappy" Bush.

FUCK Barbara Bush.

and FUCK every single ONE of their WORTHLESS, hell spawn offspring.

Bush "dynasty" my ASS.

2. It's not a dynasty... it's a cabal of ghouls, perverts, and human slime.
It's not that I dislike them ... it's that they're despicable, corrupt, lying wastes of oxygen.

3. Wow, what a surprise. MSM trying to innoculate Rove
Woodward was on Fresh Air trying to do the same. This time I don't think it will work. Stay tuned...

4. Spin. Don't believe it.
From the few court filings we are allowed to see, Fitzgerald is on to something and the judges he has been before are pretty impressed.

This is going to be huge when it breaks, but he wants to get it right, which is what he should be doing.

Fitzgerald is not fooling around. He's known to be deliberate and thorough and aggressive.

9. If no one is indicted
Fitzgerald is a total failure as a prosecutor.

13. What's up with Kenny Lay, anyway?
How is the DeLay investigation going?
Do we know what happened in Florida in 2000 and Ohio in 2004?
Have we found Bin Laden or Mullah Omar?
How about the 9/11 attack? Any convictions yet?
Anybody in jail besides the dead guys?
Is there some sort of pattern here?

14. Well well well ... my local newspaper comments at last...
So, the mainstream local paper in my area finally decides to carry a story about Plamegate...I wonder if its because our little ol' community newspaper has been doing so all along? (And doing it in a way that is distinguishable from RW whoring, I might add).
