A tribute to Condoleeza Rice and George W. Bush who, despite voluminious evidence to the contrary, said, "I don't think anybody could have predicted that these people would take an airplane and slam it into the World Trade Center, take another one and slam it into the Pentagon, that they would try to use an airplane as a missile," adding that "even in retrospect" there was "nothing" to suggest that" and "I don't think anyone anticipated the breach of the levees," respectively.

This case has drawn very little media attention unlike that of Wen Ho Lee. Remember how the Clinton administration was accused of giving missile secrets to the Chinese. One has to wonder, was this case purposely torpedoed by the Bush Justice Department because it is so embarassing to the republican party, especially the CA republican party? One also has to wonder what contacts Leung had with prominent CA republican leaders like Richard Riordan or even perhaps the Gropenfuhrer. Seems mighty convenient that professional prosecutors could FUBAR this. We know that malefactors get different treatment in the media based on political affiliation, but do they also get different treatment when it comes to criminal activities. Geez, I don't know. Do any republican members of Congress denounce the Plame leak? Do any republlican members of Congress demand investigations of anything that other republicans do? Does Alberto Gonzales do the Macarena with Jeff Gannon?

Spy Case Dismissed For Misconduct
Plea Deal Silenced Defendant's Ex-Lover

LOS ANGELES, Dec. 6 -- A federal judge dismissed all charges Thursday against a California woman accused of spying for China, saying prosecutors illegally blocked the primary witness in her case -- a federal agent with whom she carried on a decades-long affair -- from talking with her attorneys.

The ruling brought an abrupt end to the case against Katrina M. Leung, a San Marino socialite and Republican fundraiser who was arrested in 2003 along with her lover, former FBI agent James J. Smith. The case was a high-profile embarrassment for the FBI, which had paid Leung for years to provide intelligence on the Chinese government.
