Valerie Plame


About today’s column of Novak about Armitage involvement in Plamegate – it’s all spider fight in the bottle. Especially stupid the Novak spider looks when he claims that he is not Bush’s lapdog. Then who is he?

I want to see the blood, not saliva. Keep working, Mr. Fitzgerald.

Thank you Mr. Patrick Fitzgerald. America stands on people like you. Thank you.

Thanks transparent greed for letting us to know that Rove is indeed the next target. It's amazing how many people from Bush inner circle are under criminal investigation. Surely, America is still a free country. In most places in the world the president would just stop all those investigations.

To answer this post, I want to point to my older post. Cheney managed to out the whole CIA cover company, Brewster-Jennings & Associates. If that's not a crime – then what's a crime?

More:

At the least, a dummy company ought to create the appearance of activity, with an office and a valid mailing address, he said. "A cover that falls apart on first inspection isn't very good. What you want is a cover that actually holds up . . . and this one certainly doesn't."

Some in the real estate industry believe something was amiss, if not illegal. "It's almost like out of a spy novel — the tenant that wasn't there," said Griffin, who once oversaw management of the tower. "And they picked a nice address."

The collapse of Plame's cover could compromise any other operatives who claimed to work for Brewster Jennings. Although former officials wouldn't confirm that Plame's cover company used the Arch Street address, they offered no other explanation of the phantom tenant.

My answer to this post, claiming that the latest Fitzgerald filing is invalidating the case against Bush, because uranium claim was not so important.

I'm sorry ma'm, but you have no clue. Nobody is suing anyone for leaking classified or rather quickly de-classified information. The event that triggered the investigation was the blew-up of the fake front company that was pretending to be an energy materials trader and operated on Pakistan and Iran black market, specifically focused on Iran nuclear efforts. The cover was blown up and the company ceased to exist.

The investigation was set to determine the source of the leak to cut hairy tails quickly. The Bush, Cheney and Co denial of involvement had suggested that there is a real problem with classified information. Someone somewhere just knows too much. That damages the whole net of operations, because you don't know what the other side knows anymore.

If the secret service knew from the day one that the source of the operation blew-up is just this stupid idiot Bush, they would cut the damage more efficiently than otherwise. But Bush went onto denial and misled them.

The crime is not the leak. Big deal, we know what kind of idiots are located in WH, so we can expect them to do stupid things. The crime is obstruction of investigation. This whole crowd: Bush, Cheney, Card, Rice, Hadley must be prosecuted for perjury and obstruction of justice, as soon as possible. Let them leak besides the bars.

Libby disclosure left few words about how the Iraqi nuclear thread was unrolled:

Mr. Libby also inaccurately described the CIA report on Mr. Wilson's trip, saying the former ambassador reported information about an Iraqi delegation visiting Niger in 1999 that was "understood to be a reference to a desire to obtain uranium." In fact, Mr. Wilson said he was told that a Niger official was contacted at a meeting outside the country by a businessman who said an Iraqi economic delegation wanted to meet with him. The Niger official guessed the Iraqis might want to talk about uranium, since Iraq had purchased uranium from Niger in the mid-1980s. But when they met, no talk of uranium took place.

So some little-thinking Iraqis requested a meeting with a Niger official and did not disclose in advance that they are not going to speak about uranium. As a result, they got their country destroyed and 100,000 people killed. Ups, sorry about that folks :-). Next time just watch your mouth.

Scooter, I like you. I almost love you, but like you. Gosh, you are good. You make me wanna smile, you make me wanna sing. I owe you a hug!

After Libby did so few weeks ago, now his boss is doing the same. It seems WH, which already regarded Cheney as liability, finally made a decision to get rid of him. It may take few months, but I bet Cheney won’t be vice-president by the end of summer. Vacation time is the best to cut dead meat.

Another interesting thing. I think the hunting incident that happened a little while ago confirms that Cheney, in fact, had presidential ambitions. At that very moment he learned that Bush decided to surrender the smoking evidence of his participation in Plamegate, which made not only his ambitions, but his career over. So he went heavy drinking and shooting with lobbyists. Maybe decided to make some more money before leaving?
