LOL, C'mon Gayle you dropped the ball. Judith Miller is out of jail, she gave up her source, in the fake Plame case. If I remember correctly one of your vehement posts in the past indicted Cheney. So, now that Judith has been given the authority to spill her beans, who was it.... /ccboard/images/graemlins/wink.gif

Chronology: Judith Miller and the C.I.A. Leak Inquiry
Judith Miller, the reporter for The New York Times who was released from jail on Thursday, testified today before a grand jury investigating whether or not the identity of a Central Intelligence Agency operative, Valerie Wilson, was illegally disclosed.



Having read a Defense Intelligence Agency report suggesting that Niger had agreed to sell yellowcake uranium to Iraq, Vice President Dick Cheney asks for the C.I.A.'s analysis. In response to Mr. Cheney's query - and to questions from State and Defense Departments - the C.I.A. convenes a meeting of experts, including Joseph C. Wilson IV, a former ambassador to Gabon. Mr. Wilson's wife, a C.I.A. operative, introduces him at the meeting before stepping out.


Mr. Wilson travels to Niger.

MARCH 5, 2002

Mr. Wilson is interviewed about his trip. He later tells Senate Intelligence Committee investigators that there is nothing to the story of the uranium sales.

JANUARY 28, 2003

President Bush, in the State of the Union speech, declares: "The British government has learned that Saddam Hussein recently sought significant quantities of uranium from Africa."

JUNE 10, 2003

A State Department memorandum, dated June 10, refers to Valerie Wilson as Mr. Wilson's wife. The memorandum explains how Mr. Wilson came to be dispatched on the mission to Niger and his wife's role.

JULY 6, 2003

An Op-Ed article by Mr. Wilson in The New York Times, "What I Didn't Find in Africa," casts doubt on the uranium reference and claims that the administration "twisted" the intelligence on Iraq.

WEEK OF JULY 6, 2003

Stephen J. Hadley, deputy national security adviser, communicates with George J. Tenet, director of central intelligence, discussing how to handle questions about the State of the Union uranium claim. The same week, Karl Rove, Mr. Bush's chief political adviser, and I. Lewis Libby, Mr. Cheney's chief of staff, discuss what Mr. Tenet should say about the uranium claim.

JULY 6, 2003

State Department officials send a copy of the State Department memorandum to the White House for transmission to Colin L. Powell, secretary of state, who is preparing to leave for Africa with Mr. Bush.

JULY 7, 2003

Ari Fleischer, White House spokesman, addresses the Op-Ed article, saying, "there is zero, nada, nothing new here."

Ms. Miller testifies.

<font color="blue"> Palme was outed by Rove and Libby in order to deflect attention from the false claims being made by the Govt. A rumour, a disproven rumour, was presented as fact in order to bolster the Govt,s case for invading Iraq. Thats the real scandal.
If Wilson hadnt spoken out, you would today be saying,"if Saddam didnt have WMD,s ,why would he be trying to obtain uranium from Niger?". </font color>
