Rove unraveling ? * The Fog around Kyle Foggo of CIA
While not much can be found in mainstream media, the blogosphere is going wild with reports that the indictment of Karl Rove is about to take place. 'Turd Blossom' is reported to be one of the pet names the president used for his trusted aide Karl Rove. Made sense. If Rove is indicted he will be busy consulting attorneys and preparing a defense; his services will no longer be available to the president. Did Rove's recent re-assignment result from anticipation of the indictment ? Rove has appeared before the grand jury convened for the Valerie Plame
investigation being conducted by Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald
. Think of the possibilities---what if Rove testifies that he was asked by the president to smear Ambassador Joseph Wilson and leak his wife's name (Valerie Plame worked for the CIA as an undercover officer).
The White House staffers must feel as though they are under siege. The shells keep coming and hitting where it hurts. Do they ever think about the arrogance and the contempt with which they treated anyone who questioned the administration's policies or lack thereof ? The members of God's Own Party must have displeased the almighty with their hypocrisy and excesses. Prayer breakfasts are not going to help them. *
It was no less a person than Kyle "Dusty" Foggo
, former executive director of the CIA, allegedly involved in a corruption enquiry, whose office and home were searched by Federal agents on May 12th. It would be interesting to follow the enquiry. It might net a few more big fish.
- Officials inside CIA headquarters saw agents hauling away items from Foggo's seventh-floor suite, and neighbors outside his rented house in the Oakdale Park section of Vienna said officers, some wearing plastic gloves, placed materials in vans parked at the front and rear of the split-level brick home.
- Aside from well-publicized espionage cases, veteran intelligence officers said they could not recall another time when FBI agents picked through offices at the CIA's Langley headquarters.
