According to a
Washington Post article today, Patrick
Fitzgerald is also looking into how the infamous 16 words got into the
PresidentÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s state of the union address in 2003. This kind of reminds you of the
original Matrix when Morpheus told Neo ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œYou take the red pill…..you stay in
wonderland…and I show you just how deep the rabbit hole goes.ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â It looks like

In other news regarding the investigation, new light was
shed on a 12 hour time period from when Alberto Gonzales received notification
of the DOJ investigation to the time he actually reported it to the White House.

Andrew Card immediately of the investigation, then did the official notification
12 hours later, leaving a period of time when documents could have been
destroyed and stories could have been agreed upon.
Yesterday, Rep. John Conyers posted an article on the
Huffington Post about a ten week gap. This was the actual period of time from
when the CIA was requesting an investigation to the time that they actually
started it. The CIA was getting stonewalled by the DOJ in this period of time,
which considering the allegiance between John Ashcroft and George Bush could
have been a perfect time to actually plan. Needless to say this story keeps
getting bigger by the day.
