Larry C. Johnson: Why Patrick Fitzgerald Gets It


It's amazing that principal culprits in the Plame Game are now 'lecturing" Patrick Fitzgerald on "what he should find".

Ex-Op (the key on 'ex'), Larry Johnson takes his turn at the microphone over at TPM.

"Federal prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald understands very well that something beyond a crime was committed when Karl Rove, Scooter Libby, and other White House operatives spread the name of undercover CIA officer, Valerie Plame, around Washington as part of a coordinated effort to discredit her husband, Ambassador Joe Wilson. Someone needs to alert Washington Post columnist Richard Cohen that he is a nitwit and moron for trying to advance White House supplied talking points that no real crime occurred.

Here are some of the facts that will come out when Fitzgerald ends his investigation:


Valerie Plame was still a non-official cover officer in July 2003 when her identity was revealed by colostomy bag Bob Novak.

Valerie Plame had traveled overseas on secret missions using that cover as required under the statute in question.

Valerie Plame's exposure also almost compromised the identity of other non-official cover officers.

Valerie Plame did not have the authority to send her husband on the Niger mission and in fact did not make the decision.

Other mental midgets like Cohen, such as Victoria Toensing, continue to insist that no crime could have been committed because Valerie Plame, "worked at a desk job". Newsflash for these so-called Washington insiders who have proven they know nothing about the intelligence community--at least 40% of the people working at CIA Headquarters are working undercover. Just because they may physically go to the CIA building in McLean, Virginia everyday does not mean that their relationship with the CIA is acknowledged."


Larry, my man "colostomy bags"? "mental midgets"?

- two words - "Anger Management".

Secondly, you're dead wrong. Valerie was not covert for the purposes of that act, Fitzgerald has already determined that.

Going over the points:

Valerie Plame was still a non-official cover officer in July 2003 when her identity was revealed by colostomy bag Bob Novak.

No, sorry bud - "unofficial cover" doesn't match the statute. You really should get over your anger problem at Victoria Toensing, and stop this nonsense that she doesn't know anything about the IIPA, after all she helped to draft the law - I think she ought to know what it covers.

Valerie Plame had traveled overseas on secret missions using that cover as required under the statute in question.

Again, no dice - not within the last five years, again, a requirement. She hadn't been out from behind that desk since 1994 - since when her cover WAS blown by Ames

Valerie Plame's exposure also almost compromised the identity of other non-official cover officers.

Ok, Who? Where? Specifics? Impact statement? Anything? I thought so - NADA

Valerie Plame did not have the authority to send her husband on the Niger mission and in fact did not make the decision.

She didn't have to, but she played a large role in recommending him - not once but TWICE. As detailed here:

"Plame had a desk job in which she publicly went to and from work, allowed her spouse to do a mission in Africa without signing a confidentiality agreement and didn't object to his writing an op-ed piece in the New York Times about his trip."

You know, that pesky little SSCI report that you guys on the left and in the media hate so much, as Josh calls it, that "Disinformtation"?


You know with the attacks on Cohen's piece, and the letter from Senate Democrats, along with this press release by the DNC, and I get the feeling that the left is sensing that they are NOT going to like the results they are going to see from this investigation. No, not at all.
