In addition to Jason Leopold, the Karl Rove “indictment” story is also being driven by a writer named Wayne Madsen. A quick look at Nexis and Google shows that Madsen has written quite a bit over the years. In one article, from Counterpoint in 2003, Madsen cited “people close to the Pope” to report that Pope John Paul II worried that George W. Bush was the Antichrist:
Bush’s blood lust, his repeated commitment to Christian beliefs, and his constant references to “evil doers,” in the eyes of many devout Catholic leaders, bear all the hallmarks of the one warned about in the Book of Revelations – the anti-Christ. People close to the Pope claim that amid these concerns, the Pontiff wishes he was younger and in better health to confront the possibility that Bush may represent the person prophesized in Revelations.
In other CIA leak news, Truthout has made yet another statement on the Rove “indictment” — more on that tomorrow — and the Washington Post is apparently preparing a story on all the Internet theorizing about the case.
