Now I"m really smelling it! Wilson and the CIA spin machine has begun!

Via Fox:

"Wilson on Thursday 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.

But in an interview Friday, Wilson said his comment was meant to reflect that his wife lost her ability to be a covert agent because of the leak, not that she had stopped working for the CIA beforehand."


Stop the Presses!

Can you believe this guy??

No Mr. Wilson, that isn't what you meant and you know it! Cripes, this guy doesn't even know what he wrote in his own book. He has a real problem when someone catches him in a lie, as he tries the "Oh, no, I meant..." or "I must of misspoken...." crap. He's not just a liar - he's absolutely pathological! How did a bullcrap artist like this, get such an important mission with national security on the line - that's the travesty of this whole affair.

Now for a little CIA spin...

"Melissa Mahle, a former CIA agent who knows Plame, said her friend's exact status at the time of the outing isn't the issue. She stressed that Plame was an expert in weapons of mass destruction, which is no light intelligence matter.

"Valerie was an undercover officer ... the reality is, Valerie has no cover anymore," said Mahle, the author of "Denial and Deception." "When you're an undercover officer, you nurture that undercover" status and the contacts you make during the job, she added.

"It's not so important what she was doing that moment in time because your career is linked by all of your activities and if you were exposed by beig a CIA officer, bad guys are going to start looking at what you were doing before and backtracking."

On the issue of allegations that Plame was actually the one who sent Wilson to Niger — and not someone within the Bush administration, Mahle said that isn't possible given the rigid chain of command in the CIA.

"You don't send somebody oversees as an officer ... we have a chain of command ... those kind of decisions go up your chain so Valerie wasn't in the position of making that decision," she added."


Man-O-Man.....Ms. Plame sure has a lot of "defenders" but doesn't speak for herself - amazing.

Ms. Mahle....no one ever said Plame "sent" her husband, but the Senate Intelligence Report very clearly states she recommended him. If she had no "decision" in the matter, how did she "sell" the idea? Or, was she just "selected" to enlist her husband.

Secondly, wrong on "it her status 'not being the issue', Intelligence Identities Protection Act of 1982, ONLY covers those who:

1. Are CURRENTLY working covert.
2. Who are working covertly overseas, or have within the last five years.
3. Have been "specifically identified" for protection by the CIA.

Valerie, no matter what her WMD responsibilities at the time, was not in a covert/protected status. Heck, every employee at the firm has a 'sensitive job', but they aren't covered by the law. Let's just knock off the "symantecs", the law didn't apply. Thus, no law was broken. THAT's the issue.

Not to mention this fact that nobody is talking about. The fact that Novak BEFORE publishing his story contacted the CIA about the fact he was going to mention Ms. Plame's name and the CIA did squat about it. If she were in fact a covert op they would have screamed bloody murder. Puleeasee! In fact the source at the CIA confirmed her non-covert status.

I'll tell you, this is getting better every day......I can't wait for the lid to blow off this farse!

Calling Mr. Fitzgerald?

**UPDATED AND BUMPED****

As I told you about in this post yesterday as a source confirmed to me that the Justice Department has launched a probe into the NSA leak. Mr. Risen, you are in trouble - prepare your defense. I told you so.

The White House will be announcing the probe at about 12:30pm. My source tells me that this probe will most likely result in another prosecutor being assigned as of course Fitzgerald is still busy/dizzy on the Plame/Game No-Leak. Additionally, other probes into other recent leaks such as the CIA 'prisons'leak is in the works as well. As I said, this is the NEW Bush - on the attack - it's no more Mr. Nice Guy!

About time! Also covering Michelle Malkin

UPDATE II: Looks like I owe my source big time as yet another tip comes true as the Washington Post is on the target list as well for the CIA Prison leak.

Is the lid about to be blown off Able Danger?

Those who have been wishing for a full blown Able Danger investigation are about to get their wish. The "gate" has been unlocked.

9/11 Iraqi Connection

With Democrats calling for yet more investigations into pre-war intelligence, and Republicans like myself pushing back to help their 'sudden amnesia”, the growing stories of Able Danger and even China Gate, are beginning to make news.

The three main theories about why Able Danger hasn't gotten out of the "blog stage", are 1) To hide Clinton era responsibility for stopping the 9/11 attacks, and/or 2) To hide the truth behind China-Gate, or 3) The facts show that there in fact was a direct link between Iraq and 9/11.

Taking either one you can see why the Clinton worshipping MSM for the most part hasn't touched the story. Of the later point, Democrats, the MSM and even some of our investigations state that there was no 'direct' link between Iraq and 9/11. Say otherwise and the MSM will slice and di…

Monday Morning Intelligence with Kool Aid and the NY Times - UPDATE

Followup to previous post.

NY Times: 9/11 Commission's Staff Rejected Report on Early Identification of Chief Hijacker

Ok, I've been on the phone now for...oh, about three days, to some old chums in Tampa, checking this story out, asking questions,...etc. So far what I've heard is that IF this story is true, then those who are really in the know in the Intel world are feeling like a bunch of little red-hair step-childred.

Ed. Morissey is ready to hang the 911 Commission out to dry......mmm,

Ed, not so fast my friend.

Again, I am amazed at the vercacity the NY Times and AP is getting on this story, and from the same conservative bloggers who are normally parsing every "dot and tittle" the Times puts out. Who would think?...

Yeah, there is a lot of "anger" because of "Gorelick" fever where the blogshere and conservative media rightfully called attention to her conflict of interest while serving on the commission. But we can't let the "gotc…
