Cheney Directly Involved In Leak Scandal

Like I said in my last post, Fitzgerald's investigation may go to the top:



From The New York Times:

A lawyer who knows Mr. Libby’s account said the administration efforts to limit the damage from Mr. Wilson’s criticism extended as high as Mr. Cheney. This lawyer and others who spoke about the case asked that they not be identified because of grand jury secrecy rules.

On July 12, 2003, four days after his initial conversation with Ms. Miller, Mr. Libby consulted with Mr. Cheney about how to handle inquiries from journalists about the vice president’s role in sending Mr. Wilson to Africa in early 2002 to investigate reports that Iraq was trying acquire nuclear material there for its weapons program, the person said.

Thought there was a reason the investigation was running silent.
Again hes not only outed her as an agent, but also everyone she has ever come into contact with.

Bugger it haul his ass infront of a senate committee.

You know, for the longest time we said don't bother impeaching Bush because there are other bastards to replace him. If you think about it though, this investigation might be thorough enough that they can chuck them all out at once. They all probably took part in the cover up, after all!

It shouldn't be any surprises. The disgusting that is that so many of the Nixon administration ended up back in power to start with.

Snave (the fucker!) tells me that Chris Matthews was saying he thinks there will be some fairly high-level heads rolling during the next week or ten days. Snave even said there is an excellent commentary at

I can't access it, because I am incorporeal at this time. If it's a good link, please let me know! Thanks.

Thanks, Donald. It was a good article.

I'm on pins & needles waiting for the upcoming indictments. As Dubya would say, "Bring em on!"

That picture of Cheney makes it look like he is constipated and sitting on the can. Either that, or he is vainly attempting to stave off an attack of Irritable Bowel.
