I’ll see your fail and raise you $6 mil

Say what you like about bAdmin., it’s really creative when it comes to finding ways to blow your cash (via The Washington Post):

The Justice Department agreed yesterday to pay biological-weapons expert Steven J. Hatfill a settlement valued at $5.85 million to drop a lawsuit he filed after then-Attorney General John D. Ashcroft named him a “person of interest” in the investigation of the deadly 2001 anthrax attacks.

Translation: If we give you some money will you please stop kicking our asses?

The agreement, in which the government did not admit wrongdoing, ended a five-year legal saga.

Yeah, yeah. We’re long past the point where we expect The Chimperor’s idea of government to admit wrongdoing. And in case you’re wondering, they whipped out the checkbook because they were feeling generous. Honest.

The only surprising thing about this shindig:

1. They actually agreed to pay up.

2. They didn’t grab a random brown guy at the start and pin the whole mess on him.

Hatfill’s home was searched, he was followed and his conversations were wiretapped. He lost his job as an instructor at Louisiana State University and, he said, his reputation was tarnished.

And yet John “Torture” Yoo still has a gig at U.C. Berkley’s school of law.

I have to wonder. If the DoJ didn’t have their fReichtard Affirmative Action program would they have gotten into this mess in the first place?

Justice Department spokesman Brian Roehrkasse said the investigation of the anthrax attacks continues.

“This investigation remains among the department’s highest law enforcement priorities,” he said.

Uh-huh. Right after you finish populating the place with the Bible Zombies of Armageddon you’ll get right on it.

Bite me.

Hatfill o smackdown

Hatfill demonstrates the best way to spank the DoJ.

    I find the dates to be very interesting. Everyone remembers the events of 9/11. Few remember the attack on Sen. Daschele on 10/11. And not very well publicized is the drafting of the executive order for unitary executive power on 11/11 in the year 2001. The keys to the antrax, if the investigation had been real, would have been found in the pocket of a very high administration official, if not the ViceP, someone very intimate with his desires. Addington was drooling and rubbing his hands for the next “bomb” so they could eliminate FISA. It didn’t hit the way it was planned. What happened on 12/11? Is someone responsible for defusing the next shoe to drop? Is there a national hero in the wings, a Deep Throat of the terror era, that saved the American Constitution?
