8. Ken Starr used to live a few blocks from me.
He had 24/7 protection - I think US Marshals. They had a trailer parked in front of his house, and used to play baseketball in the back yard when he wasn't home. I can't believe Fitz doesn't get the same.

9. Fitzgerald and Iraq
I just read that he believes Iraq and Al Quaida were in cahoots. What's the deal there? Can he be trusted?

11. Took me forever to find what I had read
This scares the crap out of me. WHO is this guy?


"On February 17, 1998, President Clinton, speaking at the Pentagon, warned of the "reckless acts of outlaw nations and an unholy axis of terrorists, drug traffickers and organized international criminals." These "predators of the twenty-first century," he said, these enemies of America, "will be all the more lethal if we allow them to build arsenals of nuclear, chemical and biological weapons and missiles to deliver them. We simply cannot allow that to happen. There is no more clear example of this threat than Saddam Hussein's Iraq."

Later that spring, the Clinton Justice Department prepared an indictment of Osama bin Laden. The relevant passage, prominently placed in the fourth paragraph, reads:


Al Qaeda reached an understanding with the government of Iraq that al Qaeda would not work against that government and that on particular projects, specifically including weapons development, al Qaeda would work cooperatively with the government of Iraq.

Patrick Fitzgerald, a U.S. attorney involved in the preparation of the indictment, testified before the 9/11 Commission. He said the intelligence behind that assertion came from Jamal al Fadl, a former high-ranking al Qaeda terrorist who before the 9/11 attacks gave the U.S intelligence community its first intimate look at al Qaeda. According to Fitzgerald, al Fadl told his interrogators that bin Laden associate Mamdouh Mahmud Salim (Abu Hajer al Iraqi) "tried to reach a sort of agreement where they wouldn't work against each other--sort of the enemy of my enemy is my friend--and that there were indications that within Sudan when al Qaeda was there,

which al Qaeda left in the summer of '96, or the spring of '96, there were efforts to work on jointly acquiring weapons."

13. Think Progress
I found the reference on "Think Progress" and put the quote in Google. I am disabled and spend WAY too much time on the Internet.

16. Irrelevant
to lying to Congress, defrauding the people, document forgeries, and outing NOC's and CIA front companies.
