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?


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

Newsbusters Busts the MSM on Bush Event

Newsbusters, the blog of Brent Bozell's Media Research Center, exposes the MSM attempt to spin President Bush's meeting with troops into a 'staged event'.

Truth is that the event was not staged, the troops were telling their real feelings: that they support the war and our President.

I guess they might have this story mixed up with the "planted question" to Sec. Rumsfeld back in December 2004.

Yet, that wasn't the case here, Soldiers when asked, will tell you the truth.

Just like in this picture, they tell it like it is!

Michelle Malkin has links to other reactions. Also Blogs for Bush.

UPDATE I: Michelle has a further reponse from one of the soldiers in the video. Here's an excerpt:

"First of all, we were told that we would be speaking with the President of the United States, our Commander-in-Chief, President Bush, so I believe that it would have been totally irresponsible for us NOT to prepare some ideas, facts or comments that we wanted to share …
