Mark debates Republican Strategist Mike Lane on our indirect aid to Al Quaeda, Election 2008, and the Libby trial:
1) Al Quaeda: In a confusing, confounding, convoluted capitulation to terrorists, we now appear to be helping Sunni terrorists connected with Al Quaeda as a counterpart to Shiite Iran! Mark asks when will we learn that Shiites and Sunnis will kill each other without our blood and money?
2) In his first too-early look at Election 2008, Mark embarrasses himself by begging and pleading for Al Gore to run for President (with Vice Presidential nominee Barack Obama).
3) And, in the Libby trial, Republicans argue that perjury isn’t such a bad thing after all….

Former Federal Prosecutor Elizabeth de la Vega, Author of United States v. George W. Bush et al. makes the legal case for the criminal indictment of both George Bush and Dick Cheney.
While some talk about impeachment, de la Vega goes one step further and argues the President and Vice President were engaged in a criminal conspiracy to defraud the United States of America. And as a former federal prosecutor, she is extremely adept at presenting the overwhelming evidence to a grand jury.
Today, you are the grand jury. Will you indict?
Would the trial jury convict beyond a reasonable doubt?
Don’t miss a very special INSIDE SCOOP!
Guest: Researcher Ty Brown, who hosts the Dream’s End Blog, has been studying this interesting possibility….
Ever since September 11, a few people — generally thought to be nut-cases — have been conflating real, extremely important questions about what happened on 9/11 with ridiculous bullshit like suggesting that explosives brought down the World Trade Center or that a plane never hit the Pentagon or that cell phone calls were never made from the Shanksville, PA flight. These outlandish theories then crowd out legitimate and serious question of Government failures at the very top, such as the Bush-Bin Laden relationship (including the President’s allowing Bin Laden family members to immediately leave the country), the failures of NORAD, the President’s and Vice President’s personal cowardice on September 11, 2001, their incompetent (at best) failures to heed the massive warnings that an attack like this would occur (coined as the “summer of threat” by terrorist czar Richard Clark), and their use of the terrorist attacks for their own partisan purposes.
