Internal Committee refuses to release details about Cunningham

An internal investigation that the House Intelligence Committee has refused to make public portrays the panel as embarrassingly entangled in the Randy "Duke" Cunningham bribery scandal.

The report, a declassified version of which was obtained by the Los Angeles Times, describes the committee as a dysfunctional entity that served as a crossroads for almost every major figure in the ongoing criminal probe by the Justice Department.

Tell us something we don't know.

When the committee's investigation was completed last year, the Republican-controlled panel would not release the results; now that the committee is controlled by Democrats, it still will not release the findings.

That is something we don't know. But you can find out more and let them know...

So when does it end? When can our Marines become fathers, brothers, and husbands again? End the war. Stop the violence. Bring the troops home. Support the troops.

Carol Lam is mentioned in Gonzales and Rove missing e-mail

Here is the quote.

Most of the e-mails on the list focused on media coverage of the firings.

One, dated Jan. 13, is described as "Notifying FBI of Union-Tribune (nyse: TRB - news - people ) article re: Lam's resignation and FBI SAC D. Dzwilewski." Carol Lam was the U.S. attorney in San Diego, where Dan Dzwilewski is heading the FBI's local office until he resigned April 30.

Sampson has acknowledged, under questioning by Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., that he complained to FBI headquarters about Dzwilewski's contention that Lam's firing was politically motivated.


Dan Dzwilewski was forced to resign because he spoke out against the firing of Carol Lam, by Alberto Gonzalez's Justice Department. Carol Lam brought down Randy "Duke" Cunningham and exposed a part of the local Contracting lobby/bribe industry set up by Mitchell Wade, Brent Wilkes and their buddy Jack Abramhoff. Jack Abramoff was the one to bring in Dusty Foggo, the Number 3 at the CIA back into the mix for the Strippers and Drugs at the Watergate Hotel.

These e-mails will help prove that the firing was politically motivated as well as punishment for exposing how parts of the Southern California Military Contract lobby directly bribe and support the Southern California Republican Party.

True Heros: Troops NOT Military

Reading stories like this make me sad. It's sad to hear that our military will go to great lengths, even lie, in order to support out an unjust war. It makes me happy to know, that people still tell the truth, even when power offers to loom over them for speaking out.

Bryan O'Neal spoke out when things went wrong...
The last soldier to see Army Ranger Pat Tillman alive, Spc. Bryan O'Neal, told lawmakers that he was warned by superiors not to divulge -- especially to the Tillman family -- that a fellow soldier killed Tillman.

O'Neal particularly wanted to tell fellow soldier Kevin Tillman, who was in the convoy traveling behind his brother at the time of the 2004 incident in Afghanistan.

"I wanted right off the bat to let the family know what had happened, especially Kevin, because I worked with him in a platoon and I knew that he and the family all needed to know what had happened," O'Neal testified. "I was quite appalled that when I was actually able to speak with Kevin, I was ordered not to tell him."

Jessica Lynch show us it takes real heroes to speak out when things go wrong.

Also Tuesday, former Pfc. Jessica Lynch told the House panel that the military lied about her capture.

Lynch testified that after her vehicle was attacked in Iraq in March 2003, she suffered a mangled spinal column, broken arm, crushed foot, shattered femur and even a sexual assault.

But it only added insult to injury, literally, when she returned to her parents' home in West Virginia, which "was under siege by media all repeating the story of the little girl 'Rambo' from the hills of West Virginia who went down fighting," Lynch said.

These soldiers have shown their moral obligation to tell the truth and keep the Military from lying.
