* U.S. Attorney Fitzgerald calls the idea

of a government cover-up  of a terrorist attack

“fantastically paranoid.”

… Really?

Cliff Kincaid writes (6/18/09) …

  • A journalist has been threatened with a lawsuit by powerful U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald.  Fitzgerald
  • A five-time Emmy Award winner formerly with ABC News, Peter Lance is one of the few journalists with mainstream press credentials still raising the hard questions about how al-Qaeda agents were able to prepare terrorist attacks on U.S. soil, even while some of them were under surveillance here and abroad by various U.S. government agencies.
  • Lance argues in his book that Fitzgerald and other senior Department of Justice and FBI officials failed to properly follow up on hard evidence about al-Qaeda activities on U.S. soil and that information was discounted and suppressed about the planning and nature of some of the terrorist attacks.
  • Fitzgerald is threatening Lance and publisher HarperCollins with legal action
  • Fitzgerald calls the idea of a government cover-up of a terrorist attack on TWA 800 “fantastically paranoid.”

  • In the past year and a half, Fitzgerald has written four letters to HarperCollins—owned by Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp.—demanding it “cease publication” and “withdraw” copies of Triple Cross, a 2006 book by ex–TV newsman Peter Lance that criticizes Fitzgerald’s handling of terror cases in New York in the 1990s.

Rory O’Connor writes in the Huffington Post (6/10/09)

  • in an article titled “Patrick Fitzgerald’s Private Jihad”
  • Fitzgerald, who must have too much time on his hands now that Scooter Libby has been freed and Rod Blagojevich indicted, spent much of the last year and a half going after another journalist, Peter Lance, in an attempt to kill a new edition of Lance’s investigative book Triple Cross by threatening to sue both the author and his publisher for libel.
  • Fitzgerald’s stab at censorship is especially chilling coming from such a powerful prosecutor.

LMW COMMENT …

This is a chilling story.

Is this what happens when you criticize the DOJ and the FBI?

In the face of an obvious government cover-up of the FBI’s investigation of the 2001 anthrax attacks, how credible can Fitzgerald be to call even the idea of a cover-up of the investigation into a terrorist attack paronoid?
