"A senior aide to Vice President Dick Cheney is cooperating with special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald in the outing of CIA agent Valerie Plame Wilson, sources close to the investigation say.-- thanks to ATR
"Fitzgerald may be looking at a broader conspiracy case of pre-war machinations by the White House Iraq Group (WHIG) and by the Pentagon’s ultra-secret Office of Net Assessment, the former operating out of Dick Cheney’s office and tasked with “selling” the war in Iraq, and the latter operating out of Defense Under Secretary for Policy, Douglas Feith’s office and tasked with creating a war to “sell,” as some describe.
"Hannah is currently under investigation by U.S. authorities for his alleged activities in an intelligence program run by the controversial Iraqi National Congress (INC) and its leader, Ahmed Chalabi."
I don't know about anyone else, but it sure looks to me like this investigation is climbing the tree all the way to the Oval Office, although it will probably stop at Cheney's desk unless some incriminating piece of evidence escapes the dungeons of the White House information sink hole.
If the WHIG is indicted as a whole, and found guilty, that would take Condy Rice out of contention for any run at office after Bush. For some inconceivable reason, she's being touted as the one Republican who could beat Hillary in '08. Why anybody likes this woman as a leader of the free world is beyond me, but then again, so is Bush.
