"THE FBI'S REVIEW OF WMD FORGERIES LOOK LIKE A SHAM"
By Josh Marshall of The Hill found via Buzz Flash
It’s been known since just before the outbreak of the war, almost two and a half years ago, that the prime “evidence” at the center of administration claims about an Iraq nuclear program was the work of forgers. This was announced by the International Atomic Energy Agency on the eve of the war, and in reaction Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D-W.Va.) called for an FBI investigation into the origins of the forgeries themselves.
Ironically, though, that right-minded request became an excuse for not getting to the bottom of the mystery.

The civilians would prove Ric Shinseki wrong no matter what it cost, and they would do everything in their power to punish him and everyone who liked him and supported him. Rumsfeld's deputy, Paul Wolfowitz, publicly rebuked Shinseki, saying his estimate was "wildly off the mark." They also made him a lame duck by leaking the name of his proposed successor more than a year before he was to retire.
When Army Secretary Tom White spoke up on behalf of Shinseki he was fired.

PROSECUTOR FITZGERALD TO BE FIRED BY BUSH, INC.?
This is a somewhat confusing piece because a former Senator of Illinois, Peter Fitzgerald, has the same last name as the now famous federal prosecutor Fitzgerald, also of Illinois, who apparently goes after corrupted officials be they Republicans or Democrats. (You go guy!) After the S.C. paper posting, there is a piece from Josh Marshall on this. LS
