At Memeorandum, the following sensational headlines:
For the life of me, I can’t figure out why these are all threats to Obama, especially since Fitzgerald said Obama had nothing to do with it in the first place:
Fitzgerald said there was “no reference in the complaint’ to the president-elect and cautioned the press to “not cast aspersions on people” for being mentioned in the government’s filing if they were not indicted.
So I decided to check. Here is the .pdf of the indictment. I did a search of the document in Adobe Acrobat, then converted it to .txt just in case Adobe screwed up, and checked in Open Office. To be safe, I performed the search three times in each case. Each time I performed the search for the word “Obama” in the 76 page, 20 thousand+ word indictment, I came up empty. It just wasn’t there. Funny, what with all the questions about his alleged involvement, because not only was he not indicted, he was not even mentioned.
I suppose it is too early to write the post-mortem on the scandal-plagued failure that was the Obama administration. The media will just have to find something else to do for the time being.
