Plame Game Update - 8 "Plame Suspended?"

Via NRO's The Corner:

"NEW CLUES IN THE MYSTERY OF VALERIE PLAME [Cliff May]

A recent article in the London Telegraph reports that Valerie Plame has been on an “enforced leave of absence” -- that she has been on “unpaid leave for a year.”

Now at first you might think, OK, sure, after Bob Novak wrote that she was a “CIA operative” and the Nation’s David Corn wrote that she had been a “top-secret” agent -- providing details about her work and even her cover story -- the CIA would give her a vacation.

But Novak and Corn wrote about Plame in July 2003.

If the Telegraph is correct, she was not put on “unpaid leave of absence” until a full year later, around July 2004. Why?

One also might think she voluntarily decided to take some time off but then it wouldn’t be an “enforced leave of absence,“ would it?

There also is this intriguing tidbit: According to The New York Times, a former CIA officer, whose name remains secret, is filing a lawsuit against the agency because he was dismissed in 2004 – the same year that Plame was put on “enforced leave of absence.”

What’s more, the fired CIA officer “worked in the same unit of the agency” as Plame. And his lawyer “likened his client's situation to that of Valerie Wilson, also known as Valerie Plame.”

I don’t claim to know how to put these pieces together. You have any bright ideas, Dr. Watson?"


As I posted here, it is possible and probable that Ms. Plame's activities were unknown at least initially, to the upper management at the CIA. Once "outed" and then "discredited", Plame became "damaged goods". One isn't put on "administrative unpaid leave", just for appearing in "Vanity Fair". That move usually comes with misconduct.

Linking that with her fellow co-hort who is now suing because he got canned, I wonder how long it's going to be before someone (inside) really begins to sing the song that will completely unravel the already unraveling Plame Game.

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…

Able Danger - Pulling Back the Covers of the real Clinton Legacy

First, let's dispense with the bull crap. The meeting between Mohammed Atta and Iraqi Intelligence officer Al-Ani, on April 8th, 2001 happened.

Yet, just don't mention it to the MSM, becaue since May of 2002, the MSM declared an all out assault on the story. A meeting incidently, that the Czech government has to this date stood by.

Let's review a little history:

October 13, 2001: Story of the meeting is leaked from somewhere in the Czech foreign service.

yet.....

October 20, 2001: Ny Times, John Tagliabue writes a story citing other Czech officials said the meeting never took place.

so.....

October 26, 2001: Czech Minister of the Interior, Stanislav Gross has a press conference not only confirming the orginal report but giving further details of Atta's other trip to Prague in June 2000.

then.....

October 27, 2001: The NY Times "recants" the October 20th denial.

The story continues it's oddessy of 'back and forth' until May 1st, 2002, when Walter P…
