Who was the snipe who accidentally cc'd Kristin Breitweiser?
With some major paper and didn't want to give any more media time to the 9/11 nuts? I think I might just have to send her an e-mail.

2. They had another thread on DU about this. I found this information about
the letter writer:
I went looking for some info on Rabinowitz. Part of the RW conspiracyagainst Clinton.
Her picture:



Article about Clinton's attacker Broaddrick:

http://www.wsws.org/articles/1999/feb1999/wsj-f27.shtml
snip...
Of particular significance in the Broaddrick episode is the role of the Wall Street Journal. The Journal was the first establishment news outlet to break the story, publishing a lengthy interview with Broaddrick on its editorial pages on February 19. Editor Robert Bartley and writer Dorothy Rabinowitz made no bones that they were vouching for the truth of Broaddrick's allegations, highlighting in enlarged type their view that "this was an event that took place."

Rabinowitz was chosen to write the interview in an effort to lend credibility to Broaddrick's story. Notwithstanding her right-wing views, Rabinowitz earned a certain stature within journalistic circles for a series of articles she published in the Wall Street Journal and Harper's magazine some years ago exposing high profile cases in which people were convicted and jailed on false charges of child abuse. Ironically, her defense of these frameup victims was based on exposing the allegations against them as consisting of precisely the type of unsubstantiated charges that she is now supporting in Broaddrick's attack on Clinton.

Bartley had to publish the interview on the Journal's editorial pages, which he controls, because the Journal's news editors refused to carry the story. They judged it to be lacking the minimal basis in fact and corroboration required to bring it before the public. Such was the odor of slander given off by the Journal's interview with Broaddrick that three days after its appearance, Bartley felt obliged to publish an editorial protesting the reluctance of other media outlets, including his own paper's news pages, to publicize the rape allegation.

The Journal's role in promoting the Broaddrick story is nothing new. Its editorial pages have supplied the main ideological ammunition for the political destabilization drive that began within weeks of Clinton's taking office in 1993. The Journal led the character assassination campaign against Clinton aide Vincent Foster, which Foster cited in his suicide note as the thing that drove him over the edge. Then the Journal turned around and initiated the "Who Killed Foster?" editorial campaign, implying that Clinton had his long-time friend and political associate bumped off.
