Plame Game: The 'Niger-gate' farse


1981 - Seyni Kountche, then President of Niger stated that his country would "sell uranium even to the devil."

AJ Strata emailed me this link last night, detailing possible rogue in involvement in the Niger forgery case.

First, let's have a little Spy101.

Using ex-ops, especially disgruntled ones in certain missions is is always "helpful", and quite often "Operationally Necessary".

The neat thing is that if they are sucessful, they're activities are hard to trace back to the office.

If not, then you deny all involvement "they must have been acting on their own".

That said, I don't know if VIPS pulled the 1991 caper off, although as we found out in Watergate, the CIA sucks at burglary.

But more important, to understand that there are essentially two stories here, that at least at first were not related, but then came 9/11.

Remember, the first break in at the Niger embassey was in 1991, long before Plame Game. In this case we know a quantity of official letterhead with "Republique du Niger" at its top were taken, along with some Nigerian Government stamps."

Thes second burglary, which most of us are familiar with, occured in 2001 and incidently BEFORE Bush took office. Important to note that it is still not known if anything at all was taken, and only suspected later on that similiar items were taken, although it has never been proven.

Which leads to this educated theory: That is, that the second break in was a fake, designed simply to use the occurence to make it look like the Bush administration was involved. There were no documents taken or stamps. Simply a little ransacking to make it look like something sinister was up. Thus "Niger-gate" per-se, is a farse.

Which leads us to the reason for the first break in, where we know what was taken.

Simply: Letterhead and doc stamps are handy, especially when they are from Niger and you know, you're farming Yellow Cake to the evil doers of the world.

Enter Mr. Wilson and just how did he happen have have a few "spare" ones lying around in the old brief case. Came in handy, eh?

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…

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…
