The Alito road show has interrupted attention on other things, but they’re not forgotten. Of course there’s the Plame leak, and there’s the N.S.A. unwarranted domestic surveillance issue, but the darkest cloud is the distortion of the prewar intelligence proper – the topic of the long postponed Phase II of the Senate investigation. Raw Story reports that is is on hold while the Pentagon does an internal investigation of Douglas Feith. The irony is transparent. The Senate can’t investigate the Office of Special Plans [OSP] because the Pentagon is doing an internal investigation of itself. Amazing!

Douglas FeithThe article reiterates what ought to be common knowledge – that Richard Perle, Paul Wolfowitz, and Douglas Feith were all suspected of previous spying for Israel; that in spite of that they were cleared and put in high positions in the Defense Department by Donald Rumsfield; that they were involved in the distortion of prewar intelligence up to their necks; that they were involved with shady figures like Michael Ledeen and other known crooks from the Iran Contra Affair; that recently convicted spy Larry Franklin was one of their ‘boys;’ and that the Pentagon’s investigation is a stalling technique to keep a whole lot of damning information under the rug, away from the Senate. The public scandals are, if anything, window dressing in front of some good, old fashioned treason.

The article quips, "Feith is out of the country and could not be reached for comment." Is there any wonder why?
