The Italian Connection

If you're not reading Josh Marshall every day for the latest scoop on the Niger forgeries and the connection to Italian military intelligence, you're missing the best reporting there is on this crucial story. Along with two colleagues, Josh covered some important initial ground in this article last year. During the past few days, he's penned a flurry of new posts here. It's must-read stuff.

I'm betting that when the truth becomes known on this story, it will make perjury and obstruction of justice seem about as important as grammar school playground fibs.

You are so right about that...I have been reading TPM religiously and it has really been connecting the dots about thie larger picture of what is behind Plamegate (the selling of the war at any cost).

Excellent work.

War and Piece does a good job covering this story too.

A lot of bloggers are doing great work these days, but I'm still amazed by some of the work being done at TPM.

Josh has also been out in front on the whole Abramoff story. Just wait until that shoe drops and DeLay's cronies really start to flip.

Isn't it a shame, and quite telling, that we no longer see real investigative reporting anymore in MSM. That it is bloggers such as Josh who are doing all the legwork.

At least to me, it's indicative of big corporate ownership of our MSM. They want and NEED for us to be focused on the inane, like Michael Jackson, Terry Schiavo, and that girl in Aruba. They have a vested interest in keeping us dumbed down.

Kay Bailey Hutchison is going to regret that "only a little perjury and obstruction of justice" comment. Wonder if she'll be eating Baked Crow for Fitzmas? Yellow cake for dessert, of course.

I have been reading Josh for quite a while, and he has been interested in the Niger forgeries for a while. Of course most of his posts were wondering why the FBI wasn't investigating more.

I wish I weren't so cynical, but I fear that the Italian stories will be largely ignored by the American media, American politicians, and the American people. There's nothing entertaining or titillating about them; on the contrary they're horribly depressing. I hope I'm wrong, and that people like Josh Marshall can actually push this story into the mainstream. But given the history of the last five years, I think it's clear it's an uphill battle.

Good post CR, Josh has long been on this story and way out in front.

Anon, I'm really beginning to think that Fitz is onto this Italian issue and several others, including lying to Congress, which is a crime the pathetic Shrub may likely have committed. I would not be at all surprised to hear tomorrow that, in addition to several of the expected indictments (maybe even an unexpected one) and naming of at least one unindicted co-conspirator, that we also learn he has requested and received authorization to empanel an new grand jury to explore these larger issues.

He's been able to root around in places few others can go and seen some very dirty laundry. The really big issues are yet to come, and the MSM, despite their ownership, will not be able to ignore them.
