Where Goest Thou Rocky?

"I took a trip by myself in January of 2002 to Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Syria, and I told each of the heads of state that it was my view that George Bush had already made up his mind to go to war against Iraq – that that was a predetermined set course which had taken shape shortly after 9/11."

The MSM didn't cover this story of Senator Rockefeller's "trip to tell", but I haven't forgot it. But Joan Swirsky didn't, when back on December 3rd she wrote in an OPED:

" So spoke Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D-WV) on "Fox Sunday" on November 14, 2005, who at the time of his trip was chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence and is now its vice chairman.

Please read the first paragraph once again, digest it (if your stomach can handle it), and consider its immense — if not treasonous — implications.

By himself and fully armed with America’s most sensitive intelligence, Sen. Rockefeller decided to go to three Arab countries — including Syria which is on the State Department’s list of terrorist regimes and a close ally of Saddam Hussein — and literally alert them to what ("in my view") might befall a neighboring Arab state.

This was Sen. Rockefeller’s judgment only four months after September 11th and a full year before President Bush had expressed any intention to go to war!

By its very nature, Sen. Rockefeller’s solo trip, his lofty rank on one of the senate’s most prestigious and sensitive committees, and most important his words were no doubt received for what they were — a clarion heads-up!

There is no doubt that even before he departed the palaces of his hosts, high officials from terrorist Syria, fair-weather-friend Saudi Arabia (that Sen. Rockefeller, with his Standard Oil inheritance, may feel very akin to), and even "moderate" Jordan, were telegraphing the president’s intentions to the Butcher of Baghdad: "Get ready! And whatever you have in the way of WMD, whatever can implicate us, get rid of them!"

What followed Sen. Rockefeller’s treachery was the lengthy and painstaking road to war and the prelude to ways that he and other leftists have tried to sabotage the president, compromise National Security and undermine our troops."

What did Senator Rockefeller communicate to his "friends" on the trip? What sensitive - "eyes only" information did he devulge? More important, why hasn't the MSM jumped on this - perhaps the greatest story of treason - in modern times? The question? Did Senator Rockefeller give Saddam a "heads up" so to allow him as some experts like John Loftus have said, and as evidence has shown, to allow him to funnel his WMD to Syria and Iran? Apparently this is the case - the 'obvious inference'? Will he now confirm or deny? It would seem by the plan devulged in his now famous "memo" that it fit nicely into the purpose of his trip.

Moreover, how is that the Vice Chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee tells the Nation that he went into the houses of our enemies and telegraphed our war plans and not ONE DAMNED SO-CALLED MEDIA OUTLET doesn't pursue the story?

How is it that now that it is apparent that Senator Rockefeller has once again played a part in the leaking of classified material to the MSM - just as he and Senator Dick Durbin are STILL under investigation for doing so in 2004?

How in the hell is this guy still chairman of our Senate Intelligence Committee?

Perhaps a call to his office to find out? While your there, ask if he plans to step down pending an investigation.
