Fake Accompli?

James O'Keefe, the 'independent filmmaker' who brought us the 'undercover' videos that 'exposed' the perfidy of ACORN, has been arrested along with three accomplices.

This time, O'Keefe and his friends were posing as phone company employees and caught trying to place a wiretap on Sen. Mary Landrieu's (D-Louisiana) phone lines. They've been charged with entering federal property under false pretenses with intent to commit a felony.

O'Keefe is currently named in a lawsuit filed by an ACORN employee that alleges O'Keefe violated state law in illegally recording their conversation.

One of O'Keefe's accomplices was Robert Flanagan, whose father is the acting U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Louisiana.

John Kiriakou, the CIA operative who told ABC News in 2007 that waterboarding works, says in his forthcoming book that he didn't actually witness the interrogation of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. Instead, his conclusions were 'based on stuff he'd heard.'

And it's still against the law.

(Of course, one has to ask: if Kiriakou lied about being part of KSM's interrogation, what else in his book is a load of hooey?)
