82. Could it be that Karl Rove left the White House to handle this from OUTSIDE . . . ??????
Edited on Sat Aug-25-07 11:33 PM by defendandprotect
If I were investigating what has gone on, I'd be following ole Karl Rove around for the next months.

The name of their game is stealing by cheating and they are much more ambitious, IMO, than any of us have ever dreamed.

INTENSE SECRECY is necessary to all of this.

And they want retroactive approval for what they've done because they can't keep the lid on without it.

I didn't get very far along in looking at what the mystery poster has posted -- btw, does someone know the identity? -- however, this is the point I'm making . . . they had to communicate and rapidly with each other -- how many? I think this makes it clear:

18. excerpt only --
The speed with which the Military Commissions Act updates were coordinated after copying and pasting the UCMJ clauses suggests that there was an on-line collaborative tool which contractors, legal counsel, and other personnel were able to quickly update, make changes, leave comments, and produce a final MCA. Whether the final language was Constitution remains a legal mater outside this discussion.


18. It is not appropriate to focus only on E-mails. To date, it does not appear Congress has the independent means to specifically target, detect, and sample on-line collaborative tools and data sharing platforms unless Congress receives a copy of the e-mail authorization for that particular platform. We recommend Congress request for all e-mail approvals for any online platform; and that all codes related to the access of these platforms be independently reviewed by a special master and sealed.

19. We are concerned that the Congress appears to be narrowly focusing on e-mails, without necessarily considering the non-email methods for WH, EOP, and outside counsel to have "non discussions". How the online collaboration relates to e-mails, links, URLs, decisions, timing of meetings, or subsequent actions/patterns/decisions remains to be understood. Ralston's changed comment does not in any way exclude the possibility this has occurred and qualifies as a "non discussion." UNQUOTE

What are the "non-email methods" . . . ??????? ??????????????????????????????????????????
for "non discussions" --- ???? ???????????????????????????????

Obviously, some part of the Pentagon is after Bush -- but another part may be aiding him --
if that's so, Cheney will be deeply involved and perhaps doing his own thinking???
Planning ????
