Fox Guards Henhouse. Hitler Calls Churchill A War Criminal.
And disgraced ex-FBI chief and former Republican judge Louis Freeh is tapped by Dennis Hastert for "independent" investigation of PredatorGate.
For those who weren't paying attention during the 1990s, Louis Freeh, a partisan Republican judge, was appointed to run the FBI by Bill Clinton in a friendly gesture of true bipartisanship. Freeh repaid Clinton's kindness by constantly stabbing him in the back, so much so that he grossly neglected his actual job -- such as when he blew off his nominal boss Janet Reno's warning that he needed to beef up the FBI's intelligence and information-sharing capabilities as Al-Qaeda ramped up its terror efforts.
Also part of the "fair and balanced" probe:
– Right-wing pundit Bill Bennett
– Lobbyist and politician Susan Molinari
– Former Rep. Bill Paxon (R-NY), aka Mr. Susan Molinari
Oh, and Paxon was also the immediate predecessor of Rep. Tom Reynolds (R-NY), and has already publicly defended Reynolds’ role in the Foley scandal. Charming. UPDATE: Nancy Pelosi told Hastert to go pound salt, apparently. Hastert's "fair and balanced" panel may be stuffed with GOP partisan hacks, but Freeh won't be one of them.
