Berger Fallout

It's Dick Holbrooke's to lose (unless Kerry made this dumb mistake)....that's good.

P.S. What is it about senior Democrat national security figures and such confi issues?

Pas serieux....

Bullsh**. It was the White House

Yesterday ...

"Scott McClellan, Bush's spokesperson, said no one there was aware of the Berger affair until they read it in some newspapers yesterday. "

Today

President Bush (news - web sites)'s spokesman, Scott McClellan, disclosed Wednesday that the Justice Department notified the office of White House legal counsel Alberto Gonzalez about the probe before news of it leaked to the media Monday.


"My understanding is that this investigation has been going on for several months and that some officials in our counsel's office were contacted as part of the investigation," McClellan told reporters. "The counsel's office is the one that is coordinating with the Sept. 11 commission the production of documents and since this relates to some documents, the counsel's office was contacted as part of that investigation."


Liars.

Gregory:

Dick Holbrooke is such a jerk, I can't understand how you find a redeeming bone in his body.

Newt took Dick on big time on PBS last week. Dick was talking down the NoKo situation (among other diatribes) and Newt challenged him as to what he would do differently. End result: nothing.
