Cheney In Plame Sights

Former career CIA officer, WMD expert, and undercover spy Valerie Plame along with her husband, career diplomat and former Ambassador Joseph Wilson, filed a civil lawsuit today against VP Dirty Dick Cheney, Karl "Closet Dumpling" Rove, and Scooter (what kind of a name is that for a grown man?) Libby, among others.

Ms. Plame had been working for years as a CIA NOC (specializing in Iran's WMDs) until her cover was blown (and her entire spy network sacrificed at Bubble Boy's altar of ego).

Iraqi WMDs. Wilson.

Iranian WMDs. Plame.

Gee. Think Deadeye Dick Cheney might have been gunning to get two birds with one stone?

Let's take another trip down Memory Lane:

[W]e have plenty of enemies. Plenty of enemies abound. Unpredictable leaders willing to export instability or to commit crimes against humanity. Proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, terrorism . . . These and more. Many more.

As our analysts know, as our collectors of intelligence know - these are our enemies. To combat them we need more intelligence, not less. We need more human intelligence.

That means we need more protection for the methods we use to gather intelligence and more protection for our sources, particularly our human sources, people that are risking their lives for their country. (Applause)

Even though I'm a tranquil guy now at this stage of my life, I have nothing but contempt and anger for those who betray the trust by exposing the name of our sources. They are, in my view, the most insidious, of traitors.

Those are the words of Preznit Toad-exploder's Father, George H.W. Bush. Wonder what he thinks of all this, eh? It's all so Oedipal, ain't it? You can tell poor Bush I wishes he'd had a smart son.

You know, one like Clinton.

Missed that. Will try to catch it on Crooks & Liars.

Yeah, karma's a bitch: pass the popcorn.

watched the Press Conference today...Such Dignity and Integrity- such Honor- and the absolute Shame that Civil Servants have had to file suit against our Misleaders, and MSM barely noticed that the Suit bares ANY relevance...there is a TRIAL I want to see- I would send ALL of my extra Milk money to help their Suit...
