Who here believes Tom Delay is guilty of misappropriating campaign funds?
May I point out that all of you are a bunch of wacky conspiracy theorists?

2. What is the point of your thread?
You should research the facts before calling people names.

3. My point is that Delay is charged with conspiracy.
So people like you and me and the grand jury who believe he's guilty are conspiracy theorists.

4. seems like the Iraq war lies were a conspiracy too
""Mr. Fitzgerald's pursuit now suggests he might be investigating not a narrow case on the leaking of the agent's name, but perhaps a broader conspiracy."

And then further down there's this: "Lawyers familiar with the investigation believe that at least part of the outcome likely hangs on the inner workings of what has been dubbed the White House Iraq Group. Formed in August 2002, the group, which included Messrs. Rove and Libby, worked on setting strategy for selling the war in Iraq to the public in the months leading up to the March 2003 invasion. The group likely would have played a significant role in responding to Mr. Wilson's claims."

First of all, it did play a big role. That's where the push back came from.

If this description is accurate, it must have many folks at the White House in cold sweats.

If Karl Rove goes down in this investigation it'll be a disaster for the president, both in terms of the damage occasioned by such a high-level White House indictment and, frankly, because he needs the guy like most of us need legs.

But this WHIG thing is a whole 'nother level of hurt.

This group was the organizational team, the core group behind all the shameless crap that went down in the lead up to the Iraq war -- the lies about the cooked up Niger story, everything. If Fitzgerald has lassoed this operation into a criminal conspiracy, the veil of protective secrecy in which the whole operation is still shrouded will be pulled back. Depositions and sworn statements in on-going investigations have a way of doing that. Ask Bill Clinton. Every key person in the White House will be touched by it. And all sorts of ugly tales could spill out."

5. Unless you think Atta acted alone...
Isn't everyone a conspiracy theorist with respect to 9/11?

Of course, maybe Atta acted alone and coerced 18 other guys and KSM and OBL and...the Bush administration into cooperating...

But, by definition, I think those of us who don't think Atta acted alone (or anyone else) are all conspiracy theorists...

It makes one wonder what is the definition of "conspiracy theorists" whereby only those who believe Bush is innocent of all crimes are not CTers.

I take it a conspiracy is one where the government, as a group of two or more high government officials, engages in highly illegal and immoral acts.

Well, certainly that doesn't happen, we can ask the CIA. They'll tell you..
