    leave your pahty bullshit at the door, this is how our gubmint works behind the scenes, for better or worse, i thought it was an awesome behind the scenes tell.
    regarding the ap/phone scandal.

    background:evidently when a media gets hold of a top gubmint story, they will often check with the gubmint if in fact they have comment or if it has national security implications....they do this because our gubmint often leaks top stories to their favorite media outlets with about an hours time frame before it hits everyone so they dont want to turn off that gubmint spigot of future scoops/leaks..

    .anyway regarding this scoop, it was an ap self generated story about the cia/fbi stopping a terrorist threat of an airline bomb...the ap did the right thing & called the cia to tell them they had the story, & was there any national security concerns to not run the story, other connected terrorists still being worked on etc etc etc...cia told ap to give them 5 days to clear all national security concerns, 5 days later ap called cia, cia told them all security concerns had been cleared but they needed another day.....ap knew this meant that the cia was going to leak this story to their own favorite media outlets so ap put the story out....that pissed off the cia so they did the phone bullshit tap on 20 ap phone lines in defense of national security....ap says it was after the fact cunty payback that had nothing to do with national security because they had already got the clear from cia....

    .......i love this shit
