1. Woodward should go to jail. Period.
That cocksucker deserves nothing less. He's playing dumb now.

3. HE of ALL people should be cut NO slack
He spent most of his adult life being in on a HUGE secret, and knows how secrets are "important" to government.. :grr:

To play COY at this stage is nonsense.. The cats are running all over the place and the bag is almost empty..

the guy's a headline-grabbing slug

Trying to play innocent now shouldn't allow the little shit to get out of anything.

2. One question I have
Is why was Bob Woodward commenting at all about this case when he knew that he was withholding information? It was almost like he was purposefully trying to throw the investigation off track.

4. Exactly.
Obstruction of mother-fucking justice. Charge the son-of-a-bitch and lock him up. This is outrageous!

7. I must admit
to a little cognitive dissonance here. I'm having trouble getting the idea that he's a hero out of my head. Why would someone who helped expose the lies and secrets of one admin particiapte in it with this one? I guess thirty years is a long time... *sigh*

:wtf:

That said, in spite of my perplexment, it sounds like this guy should be looking down the barrel of an indictment.

8. TRULY!!! All this crap about how it was much ado about nothing.
I USED TO respect bob woodward. Now he's the worst of the whores.

I think he WAS trying to throw the investigation off track or at least minimize it for the public's consumption, because he had a really great "in" with this White House and didn't feel like rocking the boat. So, in effect, he became one of them and just tried to keep spinning it. All the downplaying and diminishing of it and scoffing that when it's all said and done, this'll turn out to be very minor.

FUCKER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

11. Espionage act....
if you share classified info...it doesn't matter if you were authorized to have it or not...which Woodward may have done....makes him guilty. He's covering his own ass by saying "no big deal." Oh, the tangled web we weave....

What is Downie saying about Card?

12. Very confusing - Apparently Woodward talked to him (Card)
Edited on Wed Nov-16-05 06:28 PM by marylanddem
and was required to discuss that conversation with the Grand Jury -
But Downie said that Card was not a SOURCE of the Plame information.
That leaves open the possibility that WOODWARD may have initiated the discussion with Card about Plame - there had to have been some discussion of Plame or why else would the Grand Jury be interested?
I think Downie was deliberately confused/confusing on this important point. Which - if Woodward initiated discussion of Plame - would make Woodward look like a rat carrying tales.

13. WP is TAP DANCING - the other 2 'SOURCES' freed them to talk, though Plame
supposedly DIDN'T come up?!? so why are they sources?

they should have reported this when they first learned of it, they didn't need to reveal the source, just the STORY.

so even our nations BIGGEST newspapers are protecting their 'innocent' TRAITOR to AMERICA who put EVERY American MAN, WOMAN & CHILD at serious RISK to this VERY DAY :argh:

thanks for the link :toast:

peace

peace

15. did the 3rd 'SOURCE' bring up Mrs. Plame? must've since the source won't
release the WP from their 'confidentiality' agreement?

how many presstitutes did WOODWARD spread this info to after he learned this info?

now we know where the 'many reporters KNEW about her identity' meme came from... since that was step 1 of their plan to TRY and cover their buts for part 2 the following month to DIRECTLY and on the RECORD inform their agents in the M$M (Novak) to take out Joe Wilson.

these people are EVIL.

peace

16. Cheney IS the Third source who STILL refuses to release the WP after all
the other big fish have ALREADY BEEN exposed (rove, libby, card) who could be HIGH ENOUGH to fear exposer now, Ari Fliesher? i don't think so :evilgrin:

peace
