The Strategy

1. Shift the Blame

Newsmax reported the story as:

NY Times: CIA Leaked Plame's Name


The ultimate source of information identifying Leakgate accuser Valerie Plame as a CIA employee my turn out to be the CIA itself, the New York Times reported Tuesday.

The New York Times itself had the story as:

Cheney drawn into CIA spy leak investigation

Even Fox News phrased the story as:

Plame Leak Said to Come From Cheney

And if George Tenet gave the information about Plame to Cheney, so what? Cheney is cleared for classified information--just not to give it to the press.

2. Smear Joseph Wilson

On Hannity and Colmes last night Sean Hannity said Joseph Wilson has "frankly, lied repeatedly" and that "he's a left-wing radical with a political agenda."

3. Smear Patrick Fitzgerald

W pals bushwhack CIA leak prosecutor


He's a vile, detestable, moralistic person with no heart and no conscience who believes he's been tapped by God to do very important things," one White House ally said, referring to special counsel Patrick Fitzgerald.
Are you sure he wasn't talking about George W. Bush? Or is this what they call projection?

4. No Crime Here

It is all just the "criminalization of politics" or some little "technical" crime (like perjury or obstruction of justice). Columnist John Tierney had this to say:


No one deserves to go to jail for leaking information to reporters without criminal intent. The special prosecutor was assigned to look for serious crimes, not to uncover evidence that bureaucrats blame other bureaucrats when things go wrong.


Tell it to the jury.

This partisian stuff is why I'm sick to death of politics. I am active politically in my local area (County Planning Commission) and Selective Service Board, but anything National makes me sick.

Aloha,

I think Hannity is correct ! (for once) There is something *really strange* going on with all of this, but what exactly this is has yet to be determined.

Just a sample:
Why has there been no reference made by anyone regarding the apparent fact that the 16 words in the SOTU were *not* based on the forged documents.

Financial Times of 6/27/04:

However, European intelligence officers have now revealed that three years before the fake documents became public, human and electronic intelligence sources from a number of countries picked up repeated discussion of an illicit trade in uranium from Niger. One of the customers discussed by the traders was Iraq.

These intelligence officials now say the forged documents appear to have been part of a "scam", and the actual intelligence showing discussion of uranium supply has been ignored.

Like I said, something very fishy is going on here.

There is more here:

It's a pro_Bush site, but they have what appears to be legitimate information.

Let me know what you think, cause I'm really confused.

BTW_Joseph Wilson is close pals with Brent Scrowcroft, who is Poppy Bush's best friend...apparently.
