If you missed this, Lance Armstrong's attorneys

  Must Read: Armstrong attorney links USADA to big tobacco

By Published Oct. 9, 2012 Updated 2 days ago

  "Lance Armstrong's legal team has hit out at the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency in anticipation of USADA's move this week to transfer its case file concerning Armstrong's doping case to the UCI. USA Today reported Tuesday that Armstrong attorney Tim Herman, in a letter addressed to USADA counsel Bill Bock and obtained by the newspaper, accused the agency of relying on "serial perjurers" for testimony and using big tobacco lawyers to persecute the world's foremost advocate for cancer patients."

"This reasoned decision will be a farce, written by USADA with the significant assistance of lawyers from one of Big Tobacco's favorite law firms at a time when Lance Armstrong is one of America's leading anti-tobacco advocates," Herman wrote, according to USA Today. "While USADA can put lipstick on a pig, it still remains a pig."

The singular attack on Lance Armstrong and blinders for others attacks by USADA may still back fire.

Cyclists who made statements are finding themselves being ousted by their teams. Is this contrary to what USADA promised? There can be re-cants of strong armed "confessions' obtained.
