Treasongate is not over.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald said in court filings that the ongoing CIA leak investigation will involve proceedings before a new grand jury, a possible sign he could seek new charges in the case.

In filings obtained by Reuters on Friday, Fitzgerald said "the investigation is continuing" and that "the investigation will involve proceedings before a different grand jury than the grand jury which returned the indictment" against Vice President
Dick Cheney's chief of staff, Lewis "Scooter" Libby.

Do you realize that there are now THREE DIFFERENT administration officials who leaked Valerie Plame's employment status? There's Libby, Rove, and now, whoever told Woodward.

Can there be any DOUBT that there was a conspiracy to leak this info to the press? Are we to believe that three administration officials did the exact same illegal coincidentally?

And is there any doubt that the Bush administration tried to turn the American Press into something resembling Pravda under the Soviet Union, and was aided and abetted by the press itself?

Hello Carl?
Is this your blog-site? (I tried some time ago to access it, but failed.)
Just want you to know that I, too, have listened in utter amazement to the corporate media "question" as to whether "or not" the Plame Leak was a conspiracy! Good heavens! And is Santa Claus still there at the North Pole?
Happy Thanksgiving to you and Francesca. Fun and food--what could be a better holiday!
