There's indictments and about-to-be indictments in the news today.
Here are some examples:
and Saddam Hussein are both in the news for being indicted today.
and...there's the DeLay, Abramoff mishegas.
and there's the guy who was just arrested in a somewhat bizarre terror-threat hoax regarding Boston.
And, what day would be complete without speculation about Fitzgerald's investigation? Yesterday, I was giddy with delight when I read that the actual president (Dick Cheney) was now a focus of the investigation. The afore-linked Washington Post article brings up the same discussion of Cheney's office and the CIA that Seymour Hersh was covering years ago. It says:
Before the war, [Cheney] traveled to CIA headquarters for briefings, an unusual move that some critics interpreted as an effort to pressure intelligence officials into supporting his view of the evidence. After the war, when critics started questioning whether the White House relied on faulty information to justify war, Cheney and Libby were central to the effort to defend the intelligence and discredit the naysayers in Congress and elsewhere.
There are some excellent Dkos diaries today and one of them includes a comment linking to this BBC story of whitehouse knowledge of Wilson's report discrediting the Niger uranium sale.
John Nichols, it's time for a beat-the-headlines revised and updated paperback, don't you think?
As the headline on "After Downing Street" revels in Plame, Plame, Plame, people are speculating about a snitch? on the Whitehouse staff. Even the true-believers at Free Republic are nervous now. At least one bright light on their comment board has commented,
The only thing that even worries me at all about this article is this short segment from it: "They have got a senior cooperating witness - someone who is giving them all of that," a source who has been questioned in the leak probe told the Daily News yesterday. That implies to me that someone may have 'flipped' or 'turned'. If something like that really has happened, then all I can say is we need to buckle in, because we're in for quite a ride. Witchhunt or not, this whole deal has the ability to even further distract the President and his staff from their agenda. I'm a realist, and I truly feel that little good can come of this probe. Remember we've got the MSM working against us on this, too. I'm getting sick and tired of us getting flanked on all sides and not at least fighting back. Rolling over is going go get us nothing but out of power - and that sucks.

Yes, yes, it's a good morning indeed.
Courtroom 302, which has been my bedtime reading this week, has a section on "good facts" and "bad facts." Which ones will predominate when these trials begin?
Please remember that indictment is not the same as conviction, but nonetheless, I feel the edge coming off my appetite for justice.
