The really disturbing parts are that

The mainstream media completely ignored all of the FACTS of this case from day one and there appears to be a ?I hate George Bush? cabal in the CIA

The Administration seems very timid...
by EdH / July 29, 2006 10:46 PM PDT

when it comes to fighting back against these people. I htink Plame and Wilson need to be held accountable for their crimes.

And the press needs to be told point blank what the truth is and to stop the lying.

have you been drinking? The press has been told the truth and they've ignored it. But I agrre that the administration should be more agressive. I am still looking forward for the "Scooter" trial.

Fitzgerald and Plame's Covert Status


The janitor, the gate guard, and her co-workers knew she was a CIA officer, and therefore she in all likelihood was not an ?unknown? covert operative. Unknown operatives don?t generally drive through the front gate every day to go to HQ, and the person?s status is not common knowledge in the building. And most of all, covert operatives don?t normally attend Senate Democratic Policy strategy meetings with their husbands. Or, I guess they could, but wouldn?t that be domestic spying?

Fitzgerald Avoids Exposing the Real Leak

Fitzgerald is now reluctant to address Plame?s status at the time of her outing. Libby?s defense team asked Fitzgerald to produce evidence that Plame was actually a covert agent at the CIA. They also asked the prosecutor to provide an estimate of the damage caused to national security by the revelation of her identity. Fitz refused both requests. Judge Walton then asked him for his rationale in not providing that information:

?Does the government intend to introduce any evidence that would relate to either damage or potential damage that the alleged revelations by Mr. Libby caused, or do you intend to introduce any evidence related to Ms. Wilson?s status and whether it was classified or she was in a covert status or anything of that nature??[emphasis added]

Perhaps unintentionally, Judge Walton had just hit upon the key concept in this whole affair. That is, if Plame were a true covert operative, she would be on a Non-official Cover list (NOC), which is itself a very highly classified document. Therefore, any NOC information passed along to any reporter or any government official outside of her select circle of supervisors and peers would be divulging classified information of the highest order.

Similarly reported back in '05 and ignored...
by Edward ODaniel / July 30, 2006 9:09 AM PDT

by major media sources.


The links offer some really interesting tid bits (such as the forged documents Wilson claimed to have seen BEFORE they were available to be seem) which were whipped up by someone in the pay of France -- maybe he really did see them? Devil

This story too is interesting as it mentions yellow cake, Wilson in Gabon, France, and CIA officer Mary McCarthy of "fired for leaking" fame.

Really current information there. The "mistake" Bush made was saying he shouldn't have said it. The yellow cake claim has been proven CORRECT.

In reply to: WOW !!!!!!!!!!!!!

the info in the article. I could not find any statements later than these from the president. this slate article was from a link from the OP. where has bush stated something more current? claim MIGHT be correct but it does not prove it was to be used for weapons. it MIGHT have been used to develop nuclear reactor. pleas provide order form for the yellow cake, then you may say wow

I should say LIE...was that Saddam did NOT seek yellowcake in Niger. The article makes it clear that he did and had bought yellowcake from them in the past.

''Yellowcake is unprocessed bulk ore,'' explains Karen Kwiatkowski, who has written extensively about the intelligence fiasco that led to the war. ''If Saddam wanted to make nuclear bombs, why would he want unprocessed ore when the best thing to do would be to get processed stuff in the Congo?''. **not karen but hitchens and another vanity fair writer:

why you are citing his bogus report is beyond me. I

mr unger is not a liar
by WOODS-HICK / August 3, 2006 3:32 PM PDT

or you would have pointed that out. I celebrate that.

The War They Wanted, The Lies They Needed
The Bush administration invaded Iraq claiming Saddam Hussein had tried to buy yellowcake uranium in Niger. As much of Washington knew, and the world soon learned, the charge was false. Worse, it appears to have been the cornerstone of a highly successful "black propaganda" campaign with links to the White House


as to your opinions regarding ms plame's husband without any proof is meaningless. he might say you are a liar and I would ask him to back that up. fair is fair.

But it wasn't false; it was true. That's what this is about. Unger is incorrect.

Wilson is a liar of course because he made a report and claimed long and often that there was no yellowcake connection. That's what this is about. He also claimewd his wife had nothig to do with him being sent to Nigert,m which is also not true. Repeating the lie over and over won't make it true

Its an awful long way from yellowcake to fissile material
by Ziks511 / August 3, 2006 5:30 AM PDT

and they didn't find any functional processing machinery in Iraq. They did however find yellowcake in Iraq, quite a lot of it, it had been sitting around for years apparently since Iraq War 1 and the UN inspectors seem to have gotten to all the processing sites and destroyed them.

But please do continue to hyper yourself into a frenzy, maybe you can get a job with John Bolton, or Michael Bolton, or somebody.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
