Another 'OUTING' by this Administration
Published on March 2, 2004 By Wahkonta Anathema In Current Events
Assistant U.S. Attorney Richard Convertino of Detroit accused the
> Justice Department of ``gross mismanagement'' of the war on terrorism in
> a whistleblower lawsuit filed late Friday in federal court in Washington.

It seems the United States Government is now in the process of compromising the first trial on the issue of Terrorism.
To "punish' a prosecutor for talking about their actions which are hindering his prosecution. "
Convertino first complained to his superiors more
> than a year ago about Justice's interference in the Detroit terrorism
> trial, saying Washington supervisors ``had continuously placed
> perception over reality to the serious detriment of the war on terror.''
> The lawsuit includes excerpts of an e-mail from another prosecutor in
> the case that Convertino says ``identified some of the gross
> mismanagement which was negatively impacting the ability of the United
> States to obtain convictions in a major terrorist case.''
"They have rendered no assistance and, are in my judgment, adversely
> impacting on both trial prep and trial strategy,'' the e-mail cited in
> the lawsuit states.

In a move which seems to be becoming a Modus Operandus of this Administration the prosecutor also says,
"Convertino also accused Justice officials of intentionally divulging the
> name of one of his confidential terrorism informants (CI) to retaliate
> against him.
> The leak put the informant at grave risk, forced him to flee the United
> States and ``interfered with the ability of the United States to obtain
> information from the CI about current and future terrorist activities,''
> the suit alleges.

So stay tuned to this as Bush retaliates against anyone who does not toe his line - even his own Federal Prosecutors.
