The Plame Game

Special Counsel Patrick Fitzgerald

For a year, for two years, for however long Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald has known that Dick Armitage was the leaker, and however long he has kept that information secret, concealing it from the Grand Jury and from Congress, both of which had a right to know, Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald has been willfully, knowingly, and deliberately obstructing justice, by concealing evidence of the innocence of George Bush, Dick Cheney, Karl Rove, and their aides, in violation of 18 USC Sec. 1500 etc., which prohibits the obstruction of justice. By concealing his knowledge of the true source of Novak's information, Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald has made himself the obstructer of justice.

And by instructing Dick Armitage to conceal his own identity as the source of Novak's information, Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald has impaled himself, and Armitage, too, on the spear of conspiracy to obstruct justice, two or more people acting in concert, the independent crime of a conspiracy to commit a crime. A conspiracy of his own making. -- Raymond S. Kraft, The New Media Journal

Anna, Anna bo banna… is the Name Game! The Plame Game is something like it. It goes: Karl, Karl let’s get him or any one in the White house, my friend! (Sing to the tune of the name game)

This whole injustice has been the lowest point ever in American politics; it’s the Democrat’s Blame Game. President George Bush, VP Dick Cheney and White house advisor, Karl Rove have all been falsely accused by Joseph Wilson IV (a proven liar) and Bush hating Liberals (also proven liars) of outing his wife’s(Valerie Plame) identity as a covert CIA agent and lying about the evidence that lead to the decision to go to war in Iraq.

It is now known that the White house did not out Valerie Plame but the greatest injustice in this whole sordid tale of Democrat partisan sabotage of the Bush White house is that it was Joseph Wilson who lied. He lied about yellow cake thus setting in motion the double political hurricanes Katrina and Rita that sent the Bush approval ratings underwater and that windswept the Republican control of Congress away thus giving Democrats control of Congress leaving Republican politicians strewn all over the streets of political unemployment.

In 2003, Mr. Wilson publicly debunked reports that Iraq was seeking uranium ore from Niger. Mr. Wilson also said his report ruling out the attempted purchase was ignored.

However, recent reports by the Senate Intelligence Committee and the British government have undermined Mr. Wilson's charges. The Senate says Mr. Wilson's report, contrary to his charges, actually bolstered their view that Iraq was seeking uranium ore from Niger. –Bill Gertz, The Washington Times

Interestingly enough a U.S. Senate Committee just like the one that Democrats wish to get Karl Rove before in regards to the eight U.S. Attorney firings, said that Joseph Wilson charges that Iraq was not seeking uranium ore from Niger completely contradicted his filed report on the matter. In other words Joseph Wilson IV lied.

Wilson lied about the yellowcake, Wilson lied about who outed his wife and Democrats used those lies to beleaguer the President and his administration for two years. In fact, Democrats used Joseph Wilson, Valerie Plame and Wilson’s lies about the war to incite the country against the war, the President and the Republican controlled Congress.

It’s all lies! Democrats have lied themselves into power, they have lied on the President and his advisers and they have lied to the American people. Yet they continue to point the finger.

No, this was a scandal of Joseph Wilson and Valerie Plame’s own making. Valerie suggested to her CIA superiors that they send her husband to Niger to investigate the claim that Iraq was attempting to buy uranium ore, which Joseph Wilson initially misrepresented by intimating that VP Dick Cheney personally sent him. Then Wilson, who was against the war and is anti-Bush, took it upon himself to contradict the President’s 2003 state of the union address in which the President stated that according to British Intelligence Iraq attempted to buy uranium from Africa.

So Robert Novak is not the villain here, Joseph Wilson, Valerie Plame and all the Liberals who blamed the President for lying about the reason we went to war are the villains. All the liberals who said and continue to lie by saying Bush lied and people died are the villains. And the mainstream media attempting to point the finger at a journalist when they along with all other Liberals blamed the Bush administration for outing Valerie Plame and lying America into war are the villains.

Finally Patrick Fitzgerald is one of the villains in this blithe on American politics too. Fitzgerald knew early in his investigations that it was Richard Armitage that spoke to Robert Novak and actually outed Valerie Plame but for two years he allow the country to doubt the President, for two years he ran a fake sham investigation obstructing the very justice that he would later win a sham conviction against I. Scooter Libby for obstruction.

This event, the obstruction of justice by the Special Prosecutor, the concealment of evidence that would have instantly resolved the investigation and exonerated the White House, whether to assure his own employment, or enhance his own prominence, to feed his own ego, or for the politically partisan purpose of going deep sea fishing to see if he could discover any evidence of any wrongdoing anywhere among the President's staff, despite the absence of reasonable suspicion, or probable cause, and despite actual knowledge of the source of Novak's information, can only be described as corruption - the corruption of the office of the Special Prosecutor, the corruption of Patrick Fitzgerald who willfully concealed evidence in order to obstruct the exoneration of President Bush, Dick Cheney, Karl Rove, in order to serve the petulance of Joe Wilson, in order to obstruct justice.

Fitzgerald's obstruction of justice has given America's Democrats and other Liberals a year, two years, in which to hammer and flail away at President Bush for allegedly violating the Intelligence Identities Protection Act in a petty retaliatory tiff against Joe Wilson, all based on the uncorroborated allegations of Joe Wilson which are instantly disprove by the truth that Fitzgerald concealed. Fitzgerald's obstruction of justice has given America's enemies a year, two years, of encouragement and comfort, as they watch America tearing itself into partisan pieces over who allegedly "outed Valerie Plame," rather than uniting to win a global war on the puritanical Islamic Nazism that threatens the future of Liberal, Western, Euro-American, Judeo-Christian Civilization.

Liberals everywhere should be apologizing, “We were Wrong Mr. President” or “We’re Sorry President Bush” or even “We’re sorry America” But to try to Blame anyone except Joseph Wilson IV, Valerie Plame and Liberals who propagated what is one of the worst lies ever told on an America President is simply unconscionable.

    What the Vice President denied knowing

    The indictment against Cheney's Chief of Staff, I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, clearly states that Cheney and Libby discussed Plame's undercover CIA status and the fact that her husband, former Ambassador Joseph Wilson, traveled to Niger to investigate claims that Iraq tried to acquire yellowcake uranium from the African country in early June of 2003.

    Yet the following month, Cheney and then-White House press secretary Ari Fleischer asserted that the vice president was unaware of Wilson's Niger trip, who the ambassador was, or a classified report Wilson wrote about his findings prior to the ambassador's July 6, 2003 op-ed in the New York Times.

    We now know, courtesy of the 22-page Libby indictment, that Cheney wasn't being truthful. Cheney did see the report; he knew full well who Wilson was. He also knew that the CIA arranged for Wilson to travel to Niger, and he personally sought out information about Wilson's trip to Niger, was briefed about the fact-finding mission, and even obtained classified information about Plame's covert CIA status. He also came to know one other important nugget: that Plame may have recommended her husband for the trip.
    Cheney's public campaign and that of other White House officials to discredit Wilson and strategically lie about the Plame leak started on Sept. 14, 2003, during an interview with Tim Russert of NBC's "Meet the Press."

    During the interview, Cheney maintained that he didn't know Wilson or anything about his trip.

    "I don't know Joe Wilson," Cheney said, in response to Russert who quoted Wilson as saying there was no truth to the Niger uranium claims. "I've never met Joe Wilson. And Joe Wilson-I don't who sent Joe Wilson. He never submitted a report that I ever saw when he came back... I don't know Mr. Wilson. I probably shouldn't judge him. I have no idea who hired him and it never came..."

    "The CIA did," Russert said, interjecting.

    "Who at the CIA? I don't know," Cheney said. "He never submitted a report that I ever saw when he came back."

    What happened once Cheney received information on Plame and Wilson in June 2003 remains unclear. But the indictment illustrates-in no uncertain terms-that the vice president's office staged a concerted effort to undermine Wilson for questioning the veracity of the Niger claims.

    Fitzgerald has eyed Cheney in seeking to ascertain who ordered the leak, as previously reported. While the Vice President stands accused of no wrongdoing, his role may come into greater focus during a trial.
    In an interview with the syndicated radio program "Democracy Now," Wilson argued that Cheney may have been lying to Russert when he said he didn't know about the ambassador's Niger trip.

    "While we've never met, he certainly knows who I am and should know unless his memory is flawed and faulty," Wilson said during the Sept. 16, 2003 interview. "There were at a minimum three reports that had been generated shortly after the Vice President had asked the question, 'what do we know about this?'"

    The Vice President certainly must have known Wilson during his tenure as secretary of defense during the first President Bush's administration. In the weeks leading up to the first Gulf War, Wilson served as the acting U.S ambassador on the ground in Baghdad. In fact, Wilson was the only line of communication between Washington and Saddam Hussein. The White House held daily briefings with Wilson, and Cheney sat in on a majority of those briefings.

    White House suggested investigation was waste of time

    In hindsight, it now seems that the White House, including President Bush, attempted to steer reporters away from covering the Plame leak by saying the "leaker" would never be found.

    On October 7, 2003, Bush and his spokesman, Scott McClellan, said that the White House ruled out three administration officials - Rove, Libby and Elliot Abrams, a senior official on the National Security Council, as sources of the leak - a day before FBI questioned the three of them - based on questions McClellan said he asked the men.

    The very next day, however, Rove was questioned by FBI investigators and said that he spoke to journalists about Plame for the first time after Novak's column was published - a lie, it appears - based on Time reporter Matthew Cooper's emails which stated that Rove told Cooper about Plame.

    Bush told reporters the same day he doubted that a Justice Department investigation would ever turn up the source of the leak, suggesting that it was a waste of time for lawmakers to question the administration and for reporters to follow up on the story.
    "I mean this is a town full of people who like to leak information," Bush said. "And I don't know if we're going to find out the senior administration official. Now, this is a large administration, and there's lots of senior officials. I don't have any idea."

    Senator Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ) responded to the president's statement in the New York Times.

    "If the president says, 'I don't know if we're going to find this person,' what kind of a statement is that for the president of the United States to make?" Lautenberg asked. "Would he say that about a bank robbery investigation?"

    Facing a deadline on turning over documents, emails and phone logs to Justice Department officials, Bush said that the White House could invoke executive privilege and withhold some "sensitive" documents related to the leak case. Democrats speculated that the White House had something to hide.

    Classified leak or truthful rebuttal?

    Unable to keep emails from investigators, the White House mounted a defense. They would seek to distinguish between "unauthorized leaks" and something perfectly legal: "setting the record straight."

    On Oct. 6, 2003, in response to questions about whether Rove was Novak's source, McClellan tried to explain the difference between unauthorized disclosure of classified information and "setting the record straight" about Wilson's public criticism of the Administration's handling of intelligence on Iraq.

    "There is a difference between setting the record straight and doing something to punish someone for speaking out," McClellan

    "There were some statements made (by Wilson) and those statements were not based on facts," McClellan said. "And we pointed out that it was not the vice president's office that sent Mr. Wilson to Niger."
    Wilson, it turned out, had never said that the vice president's office had sent him to Niger.
