Estragon: I can't go on like this.

Vladimir: That's what you think.

--Beckett, Waiting for Godot

While we wait, some links:

firedoglake thinks Fitzgerald's announcement today that he'll be doing the deed in D.C. rather than Chicago is intended to put the last-minute screws on the would-be frog-marchers.

Raw Story claims that somebody in the White House has flipped, and early speculation is that it might be Ari.

Swopa continues his magisterial deconstructions of the Plame perfidies.

Digby reminds us of one of the more verminous of Rove's minions, and his possible connection the Judy security-clearance story.

Wampum has an interesting Iran-Contra history lesson and hopes that Fitzgerald fares better than his investigative predecessor Lawrence Walsh.


  • "If and when there would be any announcement, it would be made in Washington."
    -- Randall Samborn, Fitzgerald's spokesman.

    "Mark it, nuncle:
    Have more than thou showest,
    Speak less than thou knowest."
    -- Lear's Fool, King Lear

  • New WaPo up: Cheney's Office Is a Focus in Leak Case: Sources Cite Role of Feud With CIA"

    Mostly inconclusive, on first read it at least. The last paragraph jumped out at me, though:

    Fitzgerald has questioned several witnesses from the CIA and State Department before the grand jury about the INR memo, according to lawyers familiar with the case.

    Fitz is talking with the spooks. Not good news for the WH, methinks.

  • Ah...good to see that good hands were on the tiller ...

    while I capture images, we all await the capture of crooks.

    Thank you, wg, I will savor with pleasure. For now:
