It's official. They are calling for Cheney to be investigated.


Senators: Cheney Should Be Probed In Leak

"WASHINGTON - Special Counsel Patrick Fitzgerald should investigate Vice President Dick Cheney and others in the CIA leak probe if they authorized an aide to give secret information to reporters, Democratic and Republican senators said Sunday.

Sen. Jack Reed (news, bio, voting record), D-R.I., called the leak of intelligence information "inappropriate" if it is true that unnamed "superiors" instructed Cheney's former chief of staff, I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, to divulge the material on Iraq.

Sen. George Allen (news, bio, voting record), R-Va., said a full investigation is necessary.

"I don't think anybody should be releasing classified information, period, whether in the Congress, executive branch or some underling in some bureaucracy," said Allen, who appeared with Reed on "Fox News Sunday."

According to court documents disclosed last week, Libby told a federal grand jury that he disclosed in July 2003 the contents of a classified National Intelligence Estimate as part of the Bush administration's defense of intelligence used to justify invading Iraq.

Sounds like another kangaroo court tactic, much like the saddam trial and NSA hearing. Just another distraction to redirect peoples interests, where they ought not be.

I can see it being long and d r a w n out.

If the DemocRATS can win back congress, Cheney might be in for a bumpy ride. 'Course, if they got too close to the truth, on the record and all, al-CIAda would probably stage a massive attack.

And Cheney would suddenly be off the hook and the radar. Gotta prutek Amurka, 'N all.

Well, as it was stated earlier, this "investigation" is most likely a diversionary tactic. Be that as it may, the one thing that really seems to tug at me is the fact that Cheney will get off clean of any crime whatsoever. I have heard numerous cases almost exactly identical with this one and the the shooter being punished by jail time for over a year.

Nothing will be revealed from this investigation. Even if it was revealed that Cheney conspired with satan himself to out Plame and discredit her husband; people just don't care. So why reveal anything.

It's up for grabs as to whether people are cynical, busy, or just more concerned with what the new TV season will offer. To see how much folks care about politics or politicians; check out how many people vote. There's your answer.

However if Cheney had of gotten a hummer or soiled a blue dress with this scandal; this investigation would have everybody's attention and he might even face impeachment. We got our priorities right in this country!! Nasty is Nasty!

Too much inside baseball, almost as much as Abermoff. Majority of americans have no clue who Valerie plame is, or what it is about, nor do they really know what Abermoff did. People rather talk about simpler things and scenarios like they see in thier soap operas, like accidently shooting a friend on a hunting trip, or infidelity with an intern.

I just wish George Bush would live up to his word by firing anyone in the white house who is involved in this:

Sept 29th Press briefing

Q Scott, has anyone -- has the President tried to find out who outed the CIA agent? And has he fired anyone in the White House yet?

MR. McCLELLAN: Well, Helen, that's assuming a lot of things. First of all, that is not the way this White House operates. The President expects everyone in his administration to adhere to the highest standards of conduct. No one would be authorized to do such a thing. Secondly, there -- I've seen the anonymous media reports, and if I could find out who "anonymous" was, it would make my life a whole lot easier. But --


McCLELLAN: The president has set high standards, the highest of standards for people in his administration. He's made it very clear to people in his administration that he expects them to adhere to the highest standards of conduct. If anyone in this administration was involved in it, they would no longer be in this administration.


Q: You continue to talk about the severity of this and if anyone has any information they should go forward to the Justice Department. But can you tell us, since it's so severe, would someone or a group of persons, lose their job in the White House?

McCLELLAN: At a minimum.

After a statement made on Sept 30th 2003

Q Yesterday we were told that Karl Rove had no role in it --


Q -- have you talked to Karl and do you have confidence in him --

THE PRESIDENT: Listen, I know of nobody -- I don't know of anybody in my administration who leaked classified information. If somebody did leak classified information, I'd like to know it, and we'll take the appropriate action.

Hate to think we stopped a flip-flopper from getting into office to keep the current flip-flopper there, or waffler

The current administration has proven itself to say and do anything to keep people happy, and will change previous statements with their rather conviniant memory lapses when ever it suits them. What we need is a strong leader that says what he means and follow through with the words he has said.
