Ebbers Guilty on All Counts

Guess I know what we will be talking about on Cavuto today . .  .


"When all of the activities at WorldCom are fully aired and when
I get the opportunity — and I’m very much looking forward to it — to explain
my actions in a setting that will not compromise my ability to defend myself in
the legal proceedings arising out of the recent events, I believe that no one
will conclude that I engaged in any criminal or fraudulent conduct during my
tenure at WorldCom."
