Today in Speculation
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.
TODAY IN SPECULATION:
The New York Times hints that indictments are probably coming, but not this week.
* 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.
