Patrick Fitzgerald: Hey, you remember how I treated "Scooter" Libby?

...I shouldn't be treated that way...

Patrick Fitzgerald, liberals' favorite US Attorney, is mad that publisher HarperCollins plans to publish a book detailing some instances where Fitzgerald may have committed abuses of power. Fitzgerald alleges that at in least three instances, Peter Lance, the author of the book, Triple Cross, defamed him. The book's main focus is on Osama bin Laden's master spy, Ali Mohammed, who was able to outflank US intelligence throughout the 1980s and 90s, and to this day, lives under a veil of secrecy.

What Peter Lance discusses is how Fitzgerald may have discounted information that would have led law enforcement and government officials to discover an Al Qaeda cell in New York (well, there went the oft repeated line from liberals that "9/11 is Bush/Cheney's fault"). From what I have read, Lance does not specifically blame Fitzgerald, or anyone else for 9/11, he seems to be only focusing on the incompetence of the FBI. Able Danger was a classified planning effort designed to deal with terrorism, specifically Al Qaeda. In December 2006, an investigation by the US Senate Select Intelligence Committee determined that Able Danger did not identify any of the 9/11 hijackers prior to 9/11, but many believe that this determination, much like the 9/11 Commission's conclusions, were a whitewash.

Four of the five members of the Able Danger team stated that they were able to identify Mohammed Atta as a terrorist affiliated with Al Qaeda well before 9/11, but the bureaucracy and Jamie Gorelick's "wall," designed to prevent information sharing between law enforcement and the CIA, prevented this information from being released to the proper officials. The "wall" was later removed by liberals' most hated piece of legislation, the Patriot Act.

It should be common knowledge that Fitzgerald has been known to dabble in the game of politics, as evidenced by his "investigation" of Plame-gate. He knew who "leaked" Plame's identity, but wanted to indict some top officials in the Bush Administration. I am seeing a pattern here, ever since Mario Lavandeira (Perez Hilton) bitched about being punched in the face by will.i.am's band manager, that there seems to be a little too much whining going on with public officials. If Fitzgerald failed to do his job by indicting a known terrorist, he should be man enough to admit it. His 20 month long attempt to suppress this book is shameful.

Some are seeing HarperCollins' publishing as retribution by NewsCorp for Fitzie's relentless prosecution of the Bushites...you know nothing can keep a good moonbat down

Have a great day...
