G.O.P. Leaders Knew in Late '05 of E-Mail  —  Top House Republicans knew for months about e-mail traffic between Representative Mark Foley and a former teenage page, but kept the matter secret and allowed Mr. Foley to remain head of a Congressional caucus on children's issues, Republican lawmakers said Saturday.
Washington Post:
GOP Leader Rebuts Hastert on Foley  —  Reynolds: Speaker Knew of E-Mails in Spring  —  House Speaker J. Dennis Hastert (R-Ill.) was notified early this year of inappropriate e-mails from former representative Mark Foley (R-Fla.) to a 16-year-old page, a top GOP House member said yesterday …
Captain Ed / Captain's Quarters:
Hastert Knew While Foley Flew  —  Well, well, well.  It appears the Republicans actually can make the Foley controversy worse.  As if it wasn't bad enough that John Boehner knew about Foley's track record of sexual harassment of his underage pages, now it turns out that Speaker Denny Hastert lied …
Roll Call:
Reynolds Informed Hastert of Allegations Against Foley  —  National Republican Congressional Committee Chairman Tom Reynolds (N.Y.) issued a statement Saturday in which he said that he had informed Speaker Dennis Hastert (R-Ill.) of allegations of improper contacts between then-Rep. Mark Foley …
Allahpundit / Hot Air:
Did Hastert know last year that Foley was a pervert?  —  I hate having to defend Hastert, partly because he's a jackass and partly because it's bad form to defend anyone in any way associated with a child molestation scandal, no matter how much the facts are in their favor.
Deirdre Shesgreen / St. Louis Post-Dispatch:
Shimkus approached Foley about early e-mails  —  WASHINGTON Last year, the House clerk grabbed Rep. John Shimkus off the floor during a vote and said they needed to talk.  —  It wasn't unusual for the clerk at that time, Jeff Trandahl, to catch Shimkus, in the hallway or on the House floor …

Breaking: Times of London obtains Mohammed Atta martyrdom video; Flashback: "Nineteen Martyrs"  —  I've always hoped we wouldn't have to suffer an Atta video.  I can stand videos of any of the other 18 — they're all basically fungible — but to be taunted from the grave by the hijacker everyone recognizes is intolerable.
Washington Post:
Two Months Before 9/11, an Urgent Warning to Rice  —  On July 10, 2001, two months before the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, then-CIA Director George J. Tenet met with his counterterrorism chief, J. Cofer Black, at CIA headquarters to review the latest on Osama bin Laden and his al-Qaeda terrorist organization.

TOM MAGUIRE has thoughts on torture.  He's a bit hard on Andrew Sullivan, but not as hard as Sullivan is being on me — Sullivan has brought out the waterboard of blogging, reprinting emails from readers of his who say they'll never read me again, only Sullivan, from now on.
