Slip of the VIPS Sinks Ships

Before Nicolas Kistoff's May 6th, 2003 article on Joe Wilson's "tea party" with the "gang" in Niger, Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS) were already beginning to run 'interference' and had been involved in what could be described as a "jilted lover" campaign with the White House, publishing letter after letter mostly on the progressive website, Commondreams, since 2002. In fact, when you read these letters and memos and Kristoff's piece it's almost as if the "two were one."

Most of these letters of the same subject, "i.e: No WMD, no case for war, and assorted and sometimes hysterical conspiracy theories. For those who don't know VIPS is made up of ex members of the intel community, primarily Raymond McGovern, David MacMichael, Col. Pat Lang, Patrick G. Eddington, and others familiar to us who worked during the Reagan years. Suffice to say these guys and gals are the reason for the tag, "Rogue CIA", which is to me no suprise that they may find themselves up to their their butts in the Plame Game when all is said and done.

In fact, one such Memorandum for the President they posted right on July 14th, 2003, which you will know is the day of Bob Novak's article. You know, and I have it on good ground that the man who approached Bob Novak on Pennsyvania Avenue (referenced in Wilson's Book), was in fact Ex-op Larry C. Johnson, another member of VIPS whom Wilson sent to "bait" Novak.

But back to the memo. In the second paragraph of a diatribe called, "Intelligence Unglued", is this interesting quip or perhaps 'slip':

"It is now dawning on our until-now somnolent press that your national security adviser, Condoleezza Rice, shepherds the foreign affairs sections of your state-of-the-union address and that she, not Tenet, is responsible for the forged information getting into the speech. But the disingenuousness persists. Surely Dr. Rice cannot persist in her insistence that she learned only on June 8, 2003 about former ambassador Joseph Wilson’s mission to Niger in February 2002, when he determined that the Iraq-Niger report was a con-job. Wilson’s findings were duly reported to all concerned in early March 2002. And, if she somehow missed that report, the New York Times’ Nicholas Kristoff on May 6 recounted chapter and verse on Wilson’s mission, and the story remained the talk of the town in the weeks that followed."

Opps...."talk of the town in the weeks that followed Wilson's 'tea party'" You mean talk of the Washington establishment? Like Cliff May said, "Who didn't know?"

Which makes me wonder, who was helping Joe to "shop around his story"?

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…
