Mr Shock and Awe One of DC Madam's Clients?

The alleged DC madam is starting to name names. First up is Harlan K Ullman, the neocon author of the "shock and awe" stategery:

McLEAN, Va. (AP) -- A woman charged with running a prostitution ring in the nation's capital made good on her threat to identify high-profile clients, listing a military strategist known for his "shock and awe" combat theories as a regular customer in court documents Thursday.

Deborah Jeane Palfrey, who is acting as her own attorney, said Harlan K. Ullman, a senior associate with the Center for Strategic and International Studies, "is only one of dozens of such officials" who will be exposed as she prepares her defense.

Ullman declined to talk about the claim in a brief telephone interview with The Associated Press Thursday night, saying "the allegations are beneath the dignity of a comment."

Just how much more will ABC reveal on her behalf next month?

Palfrey said she has 46 pounds of phone records that could expose thousands of clients. Her civil attorney, Montgomery Blair Sibley, said he gave those records to ABC so it could assist in identifying clients who could testify on her behalf.

ABC said it plans to air a story on Palfrey on its prime-time news program "20/20" next month.

Stay tuned. The DC lawyers are going to be busy.
