Lance Armstrong's attorneys say illegal government leaks of grand jury information have sullied the cyclist's reputation, and have asked a court to order federal agents to discuss their contacts with the media.

Innocent until proven guilty... right?
Haven't we all had enough of our government's propaganda and it's micro-managing interference. Has the governmental propaganda machine nothing better to do than to publicly harrass and discredit a true American hero? Attempting to make another person look bad only highlights the accuser's lack of character.
Regardless of any judicial or scientific findings, Mr. Armstrong is a shining example of the American Dream, and he has given hope to millions. He has courageously faced and conquered more earthly challenges than most humans, yet he continues to give something back to the people of this world. Fight on and Live Strong!

American Justice is back---just like the Old West. Hang'em first and sort out the details later.
Just who is calling for these years-long investigations? Where are the investigations, prison sentences, dragging-through-the-mud activities against, oh, say, the bankers who set out to ruin the economy through their greed and power madness?
How in the world can we go after ANYONE---on the basis of suspicions from a "professional" nemesis or two, no less---who's "crime" is victimless, of his or her own doing, and if it hurt anyone it would be the "perpetrator" him or herself?
How in the world can we afford such "legal" activity in this nation, either from an affordability or judicial perspective? Our infrasturcture is crumbling (literally); we have fallen from first to, at best, 7th place educationally in the world because of our failing educational system; we cannot afford the social safety net that earlier generations fought so hard to put into place; we cannot even maintain our national parks. Yet we can set attorneys and agents onto a world-wide hunt for petty, second-hand "witneses"---all to bring down a sports legend and, more importantly, a cancer-cure hero?
What the hell is going on here? Just who is responsible for letting these bankers, brokers, and corporations off the hook and out of the healdines, while grandstanding against sports figures???

Yes Lance cheated but look he did one wrong but a thousand rights. He is an asset to cycling.

Go for it Lance! Employ the right to inquire, sue, question, file motions, as based on what happened in other mistrial situations and the general unfettered behavior of the named two investigating and the lawyer who spent 16 months in prison for not following legal process. The true correlations as to what has been illegal are about the investigation and investigators associated with the Grand Jury, not the media leaks and general innuendo carried in this matter. Let's have closure soon on these gangsters employed by the government.
It was wise to go on the offensive; I'm offended by this media leak posturing and no other substance in the mill. Lance was tested during his racing performances, in their context, so back off!!!!!
