emptywheel, over at her snazzy
new digs — replete with stone
crushing wheel masthead(!) — makes
an excellent point, in her reference
to mine on this topic. she notes that
most of the next page, after the one
i imaged, in purple, below, is blank.
redacted. almost a whole page.
what the eff is that about?
everyone involved (we were told,
anyway) already resigned. . .
so, what’s the deal with the
redaction of the march 6, 2007
watch EW’s space — she’ll
surely let us know — and her
guesses will be better than most
folks’ facts. . .

while much of what appears
in this latest document dump from
the department of justice simply
confirms the “keystone cops caper“
of a cover-up job re the real reasons
these u.s. attorneys were cut loose,
i do not remember ever seeing dana
perino — white house spokesperson,
she — so clearly agitated in any
of the earlier doument dump emails. . .
that, i think, is new.
and — i think — i read every page
of every one, over the last seven months. . .
so — while the full three sets
are under this link at the house
judiciary committee — here we see
dana perino plainly opining that
even she knew it would be inapprop-
riate for pete domenici to contact
u.s. attorney iglesias about any
ongoing investigation. . .
that was in early-march of 2007.
and yet, we were insulted by months
of denials, half-truths and outright lies
about the real reasons these professional were fired.

quote] a phrase: “bad. — very bad. . .”:
