Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.

ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.

  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

Public Integrity Champion, Jill Simpson, has called for President Obama to appoint a Special Prosecutor, and for the U.S. Senate to convene an investigation of "Endgame," the top secret purveyor of access to computers and cellphones and guidance on how to exploit their vulnerabilities.  

Published Last Thursday by FreePress.org as its top featured article, Simpson writes:

It is time for President Obama to appoint a special prosecutor to determine if the NSA and CIA have outsourced criminal activities to private “hacker groups” such as Endgame since the DOJ has a clear conflict of interest as an employer of Endgame.  It is also time for Congress to investigate whether government contractors such as Endgame who are tied to the intelligence community are selling computer exploits against foreign and domestic targets to the highest bidder.
Intro

You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

Jill Simpson achieved fame in 2007 by exposing in the New York Times and Time Magazine, on 60 Minutes, and in sworn testimony before the House Judiciary Committee, Karl Rove's instigation of the federal prosecution of former Alabama Governor Don Siegelman.  The exposure cost Rove his White House job and Simpson Rove's animosity ever since.  On June 20, 2012 Rove launched into an attack upon Simpson on the Greta van Susteren Fox News Show in response to question about Obama Campaign Counsel's letter that day asserting that Rove's Crossroads Grassroots Political Strategies was not a legitimate charitable organization.

That and another gratuitous attack by Rove at a news gathering at the Republican National Convention prompted Simpson to conduct a tour of the entire Rove "Electronic Empire of Fraud" with lethal effect upon Rove's grand strategy to elect Mitt Romney to the White House in 2012.  See Simpson's press conference appearances in NYC of October 22, 2012 and at the National Press Club on October 24, 2012 at:
