  •  I think this may (4.00)
    be a much older tradition than we realize, and the CIA has been busy "planting seeds" for many decades.

    What you're seeing here is just sloppiness: they're not covering their tracks as well as they used to.

    These are like Tricky Dick's Dicky Tricks: more of the same

    •  The legal questions (4.00)
      surrounding the Fitzgerald investigation (God, does anyone know what's new with this outside of Abu Gonzales' recusal from oversight?) may turn on source confidentiality, what constitutes a journalist, and taxpayer-funded propaganda.

      Could the jeopardy Judith Miller finds herself in -- apparently unrelated to Plame -- have to do with knowingly reporting false information from sources paid with taxpayer money (which Chalabi certainly was) to advance a political agenda?  

    •  Ummmm... (none)
      weren't we supposed to tell you to get a life if we saw you here? Not that I'm any better.... good thing there's no puter where I work.

      As long as I count the votes, what are you going to do about it? - William Marcy Tweed

    •  yes, it goes back decades (none)
      This probably goes back 100 years.
      Democrats used to do it, too.
      Before the internet, no one was there to catch it.
    •  Sloppliness? (none)
      No as an old federal prosecutor and Watergate fan, this smells like a tricky dick coverup attempt using Gannon to obstruct justice by trying to create a defense for the potential Plame Affair Defendants, claiming that there was no offense because Plame was already outed by others.
