Dame Plame Bites the Dust
Well, we at least tried to warn them, but they just couldn't help themselves, and dove head first into the trash heap of rumors. My gosh, wouldn't you think they'd learn after the umpteenth embarrassment of jumping on a rumor only to have it backfire on them?
According to Victoria Toensing, Plame's circumstances don't meet several of the criteria spelled out in a 1982 statute designed not only to protect the identity of intelligence agents but to maintain the media's ability to hold government accountable, reported by WorldNetDaily.
Toensing – who drafted the legislation in her role as chief counsel for the chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence – says the Beltway frenzy surrounding Plame's alleged "outing" as a covert agent is a story arising out of the capital's "silly season."
The Federal code says the agent must have operated outside the United States within the previous five years. But Plame gave up her role as a covert agent nine years before the Rove interview, according to New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof. But at the same time, Wilson grudgingly acknowledged his wife was no longer in an undercover job at the time Novak's column first identified her. "My wife was not a clandestine officer the day that Bob Novak blew her identity," he said. So as the reality sunk in that there was no cover to blow in the first place, you could hear the dead silence on the left as they've been exposed for the deceptive liars they are, once again.
Democrats have been screaming for President Bush to fire Karl Rove over a memo about blowing a supposed CIA agents cover. Only it never happened. What did happen was to let the democrats think they had a case against Bush's main political advisor, then pull the rug out from under them with the truth.
They've fallen for it every single time, which is simply amazing after the last several fiasco's trumped up by liberals in the media that have blown up in their faces, namely the DNC's Rathergate smear attempt, thus helping to net George W. Bush more votes than any other president in U.S. history over his 2004 opponent Sen. John Kerry.
It's still hard to believe they didn't see it coming, again! Clearly blinded by rage, the democrats base of liberals is leading them to one dead end after another in a crazy maze of confusion following a misguided trail of revenge. The average is up to about once a month now for these democrat debacles.
Dems are taking a hard header on this one too. The immediate silence from the left is deafening.
According to the Washington Post, "Although the White House has previously said Rove was not involved in the episode, a recently disclosed internal Time magazine e-mail hints that Rove mentioned Plame, albeit not by name, to reporter Matthew Cooper before her name and affiliation became public in July 2003." Democrats assumed the rest just like they always do, then wonder what went wrong. No proof, they just know because they can feel it. But alas, it's just another red herring thrown out by the Bush team to the haters. Amazing!
I even went so far as to warn many liberals on other blogs that this was going to go nowhere, and the more they made of it the worse the backfire would be. But the know it all Liberals just don't want to hear the truth. Whatever is going on in their scheming minds is all liberals care about. They'd rather live in their world of conspiracy theories filled with wild accusations about Bush and/or the administration, simply because they can't stand being out of power over the people, and can't figure out how it happened.
From Wed. July 13, in the Wall Street Journal comes this bomb: "Democrats and most of the Beltway press corps are baying for Karl Rove's head over his role in exposing a case of CIA nepotism involving Joe Wilson and his wife, Valerie Plame. On the contrary, we'd say the White House political guru deserves a prize--perhaps the next iteration of the "Truth-Telling" award that The Nation magazine bestowed upon Mr. Wilson before the Senate Intelligence Committee exposed him as a fraud.
Dems have set themselves up for yet another crushing blow in '06.
For Mr. Rove is turning out to be the real "whistleblower" in this whole sorry pseudo-scandal. He's the one who warned Time's Matthew Cooper and other reporters to be wary of Mr. Wilson's credibility. He's the one who told the press the truth that Mr. Wilson had been recommended for the CIA consulting gig by his wife, not by Vice President Dick Cheney as Mr. Wilson was asserting on the airwaves. In short, Mr. Rove provided important background so Americans could understand that Mr. Wilson wasn't a whistleblower but was a partisan trying to discredit the Iraq War in an election campaign. Thank you, Mr. Rove."
The same bipartisan report also pointed out that the forged documents Mr. Wilson claimed to have discredited hadn't even entered intelligence channels until eight months after his trip. And it said the CIA interpreted the information he provided in his debrief as mildly supportive of the suspicion that Iraq had been seeking uranium in Niger.
Here's some more honest truth that won't register with liberals either... 'The vast majority of people are on to the libs and their anti-American socialist agenda, have soundly rejected it, and don't want to hear anymore whiney crap from them.'
Libs can't stand the fact that the economy is doing fine with the war in Iraq being waged and won for the Iraqi people's freedom under a Republican president, again, following Reagan's triumph in Russia. That makes it twice the democrats have been completely wrong about what freedom means to people who've never had it. It is also why they don't understand the U.S. Constitution, hence their lust to rewrite it using liberal judges.
The crushing blow to the liberal democrats came from where it all started, their friends in the media, leaving democrats humiliated and disgruntled one more time, but many will surely go back to take more pounding from the hammer of reality.
It's no wonder why so many have left the leftist losers to join the winners on the right. An emotional misfit can only take so much.
