Plame Questions-2

Ms. Plame

Since the nomination news this week slowed to a certain extent the "Fire Rove" wall-to-wall coverage, this gives us the opportunity to look at this Plame-Game from fresh.

Long before there was a "leak", before there was a "memo", there was Valerie Plame.

It's important to remember that Valerie herself arraigned the meeting of Feburary 19th, 2002. According to the Senate Intellgence Report, Valerie introduce Jospeh and then left after three minutes.

Just reading the report of the Senate Intelligence Committee one question screams at you. "Why was Valerie so bent on making sure Joe got the job? In 1999, she had made a similar recommendation as well. Why Joe. No one at the agency - outside of Valerie thought this guy had a shred of ability to carry the mission off. The fact that he was given specific "talking points" is key.

The questions he was given to ask were as non-extractive as they could be. Layman terms: They were lame.

I mean you're going to Niger, who is suspected of selling Urainium to Iraq and all you ask them is:

"Have you been pimping yellow cake to Iraq?"

It's like a cop knocking on a door of a drug addict, asking them "Do you sell dope?" and after the the dealer says, "Nope!", the cop says "OK, have a nice day! Thanks for the Donut!"

You could imagine how that officer's career would progress doing investigations like that. But this is EXACTLY what Joe Wilson did. He didn't go to find anything. He went to "play the role he was assigned", to remember his lines, and then come back home.

Interestingly enough, the "debrief" took place in his home while Valerie played "hostess with da-mostess".

Since when, after a meeting was arraigned at "the office", does the debrief take place at Wilson's house. This just doesn't happen! That is, unless, you want the meeting to be "covered".

Now, the most interesting thing in the report is this point. Wilson told the Committe that he wrote an article in the Washington Post dtd June 12th,2003. In that article he "slips" by writing, "among the Envoy's conclusions was that the documents may been forged because the "dates were wrong and the names were wrong". (SIR page 45).

Oppsie....Joe, you weren't supposed to know that!

Of course he was asked, "Hey Joe, how'd you know?", since he had never had access to the reports. This is where he weaseled out of it by burping up some lame excuses. None of the Ops involved or anyone with access to those documents ever showed Wilson those documents and testified to that fact.

So where did Joe get the idea the documents were forgeries? Take a guess.

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…

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…
