4. Oh, THANK YOU for putting that video up!
Being at work, I would have completely missed it.

I'm not surprised that Abrams believes all that he said. His daddy is one of the most famous defense lawyers anywhere, and he's a lawyer, too.

But I am amazed that he said it on his program, and so forcefully, too.

Wow.

13. Dan Abrams should get a medal of freedom with Oak Leaf Clusters for this
Sibel Edmonds, Colleen Rowley, the Phoenix FBI guy, and now countless other whistleblowers (whose careers are 'at risk' for speaking out as a last resort--since all channels of internal accountability are blocked), need the protection of the public's knowledge.

The light of day is truly the best disinfectant. Shame on the Bush administration's pogrom on whistleblowers. Shame shame shame !

8. Wowza!!! I am sitting here in shock.
Dan Abrams?

Between this little clip and Keith Olbermann I may have to start watching MSNBC again.

My honor to kick and recommend.

12. I'm sorry - but this really pisses me off.
Abrams is a republican shill.

He voted for bsh -
he constantly dissed Kerry during the campaign.

I used to watch him until 2004 when he constantly praised bsh, and
insulted John Kerry.

So fck you Abrams.
You voted for this administration.
You got exactly what you deserve. And because of assholes like you,
I have to live with the results of your stupidity.

16. well wow! I had missed that!
I am astonished that Edmond's name was brought up. It's too bad that 90% of the audience will scratch their heads and say "who?". It is very encouraging to see this. I hope he doesn't get a trip to the woodshed for his trouble.

17. We should all call in to congratulate him on this effort!
The more the press is "backed up" by us in the public when they take risks like this and "cover the uncoverable", hopefully the more they'll know that they will get support for taking risks in the future.

I wonder if he had read Sibel's op-ed this morning which absolutely NAILS Porter Goss.

18. Every Democratic member of the intel committees House/Senate needs to see
this video. They should use it on the campaign trail. Re-take the House and Senate in '06 and in '08 we'll have it back FOR THE PEOPLE AND THE CONSTITUTION !

20. Good catch, Liveoaktx
I didn't see that one - very powerful.

Sometimes Abrams seems to only cover fluff (missing persons) to death - so I rarely tune in. I am very glad that you did, and captured this.
