Today in Speculation

Posted by on October 19 at 11:34 AM

Well, yesterday’s murmurings of indictments being handed down this morning in the CIA leak case proved to be wrong. And I never thought I’d say this, but I’m starting to reach the limit of my obsession with the pre-indictment phase of this drama. If this were a book I would throw it across the room at this point, because the build-up to the climactic moment has just gone on way too fucking long. The grand jury’s term expires Oct. 28 will that mean nine more days of this teasing escalation of leaks, theories, and too-good-to-be-true predictions?

In honor of this unbearable state of affairs, I’m starting a new Slog feature called… Today in Speculation.


The New York Times hints that indictments are probably coming, but not this week.

The New York Daily News has liberal bloggers in a froth with this exclusive story.

And Raw Story (which I love because it often posts unfinished stories that is says are “DEVELOPING HARD”) today says another person in Cheney’s office has flipped *.

* If you don’t know what we mean by flipped in this context, you are officially not obsessed.

Tune in Friday when, if we don’t have indictments by then, I will, with a heavy heart, wrap up THIS WEEK IN SPECULATION.
