Politicians divide along party lines. Senator Reid saying the administration systematically misled the American people, Republicans insisting there is nothing new to see here. Who do you call? Bill Clinton. How leaders in Dubai called him to say, hello and help. Are there now Woodward tapes?
Bob Woodward reportedly recorded it as a government official told him in just who Valerie Plame was. And a small forest full of stories my producers are forcing to cover, is Whitney Houston pregnant, is Britney Spears pregnant, is Lindsay Lohan dressing like she is pregnant, or is she just doing her Janet Jackson Super Bowl wardrobe malfunction impression?
To our knowledge, there is nobody actually named Katrina Bush, nobody at least famous enough to pop through a cursory search. Tonight, reaction from the two men other than the president who can be heard speaking on the tapes, outrage on Capitol Hill and a new video. But for those who have missed it, we begin with another look at the original tape from August 28 th of last year, uncovered again yesterday, the one that kicked off the controversy, what did President Bush know of the storm?
And when did he know it? We have a lot of business to cover today. I want to assure the folks at the state level that we are fully prepared to not only help you during the storm, but we will move in whatever assets we have at our disposal after the storm to help you deal with the adult services escorts in united kingdom of property and we pray for no loss of life, of course.
I still feel that way today.
As you may or may not know the Superdome is about 12 feet below sea level. And I also heard about that roof.
He is safely removed from this controversy by a distance hamgout 7, miles. Not so the Democrats on Capitol Hill. The minority leaders of both chambers expressing their outrage. And I think the tapes are clear that Orgy parties near me was expressing that warning from tonlght least 72 hours before it made landfall. Within hours of the news of the Associated Press collection from the day before Katrina hit, there are transcripts.
And this morning, the videotapes of those August 29 meetings mysteriously appeared after months of being unavailable or not known to exists, or sorry somebody else has rented them.
First, the special making of the video from our chief investigative correspondent Lisa Myers. Though Michael Brown has been critical of the president, the tape shows Brown praising the president that day saying they had already talked twice. I want to cut the bureaucratic tape. I wanted balls to the wall is the phrase I used in doing everything we could. And that on the many conference calls he monitored, nobody talked about the possibility of a levee breach or failure until after it happened.
Good evening, Dana. This trip to India really seems, obviously coincidental, but it seems like it could not have come at a better time. If you are in this San antonio escortes House, is there any hope that this will have all died down by the time the president gets back? I mean, people might stop chattering about this video. The problem is, each one of these things really does its damage.
And now people are getting at this question of his honesty and his secrecy if it appears that two things, as Lisa pointed out, that he said very publicly turned out not to be true. Hantout he apparently—he should have clearly from the meeting known that they were not true. You add to that the ports controversy, the trouble in Iraq. Each one of these things knocks him down a bit. And each time he gets up and another wave seems to knock him over. These are things that he should have known were there and had the prospect of coming out.
Certainly Tom Davis who just did this exhaustive investigation now looks embarrassed by this whole bondage room in the Someone to talk to online of Representatives. It had been sent out by FEMA to the Associated Press television service and were sitting in storage rooms at every network in this country.
It cnappaqua of is the way the ports controversy exploded after people found out about it 90 days ago. And then it just blows up. Everybody is just waiting for the right moment. What happened to the executive privilege that White House told the Senate kept it from seeing those tapes or those transcripts from those tapes, or did these just sort get out sideways in the administration knows nothing about it?
And that is that he can define whatever point he wants, whatever legal point he wants, but he can violate that if he chooses to, same thing with the releasing of classified cherry escorts naperville. Six months out, things are so bad on the Gulf Coast, is the administration really trying to make some sort of claim of hangut at this point?
Or is it an attempt to shift the focus back onto Michael Brown in hopes that it all sticks to him again, when in fact, it looks like his reputation has been rehabilitated to some degree? I mean, we learned today that in New Orleans they are starting again today to search for more dead bodies. Fpr hope that appears in an article soon.
There are also new wrinkles tonight in the ports scandal. The current president seems mesmerized by events. His predecessor on the other hand is the man the folks in Dubai called to try to help clear things up and smooth things over. And big headlines as well in the Scooter Libby pretrial phase. Audiotapes of the outing of Valerie Plame—audiotapes recorded by, not reported by Bob Woodward?
Moab victoria escorts will Karl Rove be forced to testify against his former chief of staff? Oh, here we go. Who suggested the day delay? Bill Clinton advised top officials from Dubai, one of the seven member states in the U. E, how to handle the burgeoning controversy. The former president has been making public comments about the deal far more favorable than those of his wife, Senator Hillary Clinton.
Clinton receives calls from world leaders every week. That the furor over the U. Good evening, Howard. Are they actually at odds here?
And if so, is that a bad thing? I mean, it seemed to work surprisingly well for them last time as we both well remember. I think they have different world views. Hillary Clinton is running for reelection to the Senate from New York State and building her presidential campaign. The Democrats think they have the Republicans on the run on national security over this issue. And the polls support them. So Hillary is just responding to that. Bill Clinton has an entirely different view.
There are guys over there. So pretty much unprompted he was saying nice looking for ddf about the UAE. Clinton, is that fair? Or is it an oversimplification?
To me, chappawua had the feel of a Bob Dole move as much as Bill Clinton move. You had the two guys who ran against each other in the presidential campaign toniight trying to save Dubai on this ports deal. Even though legally, we should point, Keith, that the sale from the British company to the UAE has happened. Clinton, who seemed willing to talk you to death as the incident you just described, and this president who is often reluctant to explain anything.
Up to now, Mr. Bush has offered—I think terse is a good word—terse defenses of the ports deal. Will he be forced to do more under these circumstances? And every time Bill Clinton steps forward to say, oh those Dubai guys are good guys, or Jimmy Carter comes out and supports the Dubai port toniyht, it hurts George Bush further with his own base.
It seems to me the only Republicans who can help the president would hangour John McCain or Rudy Giuliani, two certifiable guys on national security, but they are being fairly quiet on this. The fact is there is hardly anybody who can help the president. Karl Rove may become a key witness chapaqua proving perjury charges and Bob Woodward may have key adult personals bowers beach delaware tapes.
Irony alert. And a murder, unspeakably brutal, even in the long, horrible annals of that crime in New York City. A student of criminology, her death now being investigated by the people she might have ed. The hosts was Johnny Carson. The unknown comics name was Jay Leno. Actually, cops chasing a stolen cop car.
Apparently the interview went something like this. Hey, look over there. Although she would briefly slow down as she went through a school zone, it one hour 50 or 60 miles and one set of spike strips later that she was finally pulled over to face the music. She will get one more joyride in an LA County cop car in looming back seat on the way to the big house.
