What were the circumstances regarding the Justice Dept. actions? There is much written about the Justice Depts. actions but little about WHY,
WHAT? I've heard little about what the AP did in relation to a
terrorist attack which prompted these very serious measures.
Truthseeker, I think the issue is the AP broke the story of the failed bomb
attack a day before the government was to make their announcement, which means
that someone in the justice department leaked the story to the AP. There was an
immediate outcry from congress both Republicans and Democrats but mostly
Republicans to find out who had leaked the story. The DOJ launched
an investigation but got nowhere, so as a last ditch effort they subpoenaed the
AP records hoping to find information about the leak and then work backwards to
see who in the DOJ had called. Actually that didn't work either. They
still don't know who the leaker was.
