  •  LOL. Guckert would be proud. (none)
    I like Eberle 'cuz the article links conservative news outlets, mentions Talon specifically and the CIA was pissed about classified info floating out there.  

    So, FBI investigates "private citizen".  Could be Clifford May, too.  

    Speaking of Guckert, he stopped posting about this case in Sept.  Not a word about it in all of Sep and Oct, when things heated up for Rove.  

    He had been defending Rove in Jul & Aug.  Then, nothing.  Not so funny anymore, eh Jeff?

    •  OR ... Private Citizen Richard Clarke (none)
      NSC, Counter-terrorism czar, as blunt as Joe Wilson and the WH and CIA by would both, by this point, have the (final?) draft of his book, slated for Mar/04 publication.

      Right after 9/11, Clarke had been asked to look harder for a 9/11-Saddam connection and he made that famous crack about it making more sense to invade Mexico than Iraq.

      If I were Ashcroft, I'd certainly run for the fucking hills recuse knowing all this stuff would come out (a) during the election campaign and/or (b) soon thereafter.

      •  You could be right. (none)
        I'm sure he'd have a lot of tales to tell.

        My thinking is something pushed this forward big-time in Dec03 and that something was outraged CIA lifers.  Talk about adding insult to injury: Bushco outed a NOC and to cover themselves they leak more classified info, not only to MSM, but pure hack outfits.

        I think it was the CIA outrage and sourcing that led Justice to look at the political operative side of Rove's operation.  The fact that the visit was unannounced seems important to me: they do that when they want to catch somebody off guard, somebody who'd never think the FBI would be knocking on their door.

        Clarke's history would indicate a potentially cooperative witness, no need for surprise visits there.
