DC Madam, Deborah Jeane Palfrey, 'confirms for the first time that another individual with very high government security clearance

We have learned that so-called DC Madam, Deborah Jeane Palfrey, 'confirms for the first time that another individual with very high government security clearance -- Ronald Roughead of SAIC -- was also a customer.'
 
At the hearing on Friday, Judge Kessler adjourned the matter without setting a date to allow her time to consider whether she would allow Montgomery Blair Sibley to appear as Jeane Palfrey's counsel in this matter. Briefing on that issue is schedule to be completed by September 26.
 
However, not wanting to delay this matter further, Palfrey has filed pro se this morning a pleading of note. That pleading explains the factual basis for invoking the Classified Information Procedures Act and is entitled Memorandum of Fact In Support of Motion for Pretrial Conference to Consider Matters Relating to Classified Information. That Memo details Palfrey's basis for raising the "Honey Pot" defense in which she alleges that the United States Government has been directly or indirectly benefiting from the operation of her service by monitoring her customers and is thus equitably barred from prosecuting her. In that Memo, Palfrey identifies not only already-known customers of the escort service -- Senator Vitter, Randall Tobias of USAID and Harland Ullman -- but also confirms for the first time that another individual with very high government security clearance -- Ronald Roughead of SAIC -- was also a customer. This nexus of CIA backed USAID, Senator Vitter on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and two beltway bandits appears to be more than a coincidence. An fine article detailing these relationships can be found at www.Yardbird.com

Yes, I'm the source of this story, as well as an anonymous blogger from July 8th-or-9th. I wrote my first piece on July 16th, published at that time. There is considerably more detail on the story at my site, J to the Power of 7. I enjoin all interested parties to have a read.
