We all know by now who has and still is behind the Plame and Wilson show.
Yet in a name - Ray McGovern, member in residence and founder of VIPS.
McGovern has been out of service officially for years, but he has always been anti war, as in my day he did his share of behind the scenes sabotaging the the efforts of the Reagan administration to assist the Contras against the Sandinistas. In fact all his flap about "manufactured intelligence" against President Bush isn't new as he has that same rap against Reagan and George H.W. Bush. Reagan for the Contras and Elder Bush for the first gulf war. Ray's been at this game of treason for a while.
Of course he's not alone as the IC is rift with antiwar activists and has been for a long time. This is beyond the "Dove", as people like Ray do not like the United States of America as a world power. They find it offensive that we should weild such power and specifically, they would turn the other cheek even after a 9/11, and perhaps looking the other way before.
But even more...
Despite his protestations to the contrary, Ray, is an antisemtic. You are known by the words you speak and the company you keep. In a February 2003 letter from his group to President Bush (one of many such screeds) where Ray blamed the problems of terrorism and middle east conflict on Israel:
"It is widely known that you (speaking to Bush) have a uniquely close relationship with Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon. This presents a strong disincentive to those who might otherwise warn you that Israel's continuing encroachment on Arab territories, its oppression of the Palestinian people, and its pre-emptive attack on Iraq in 1981 are among the root causes not only of terrorism, but of Saddam Hussein's felt need to develop the means to deter further Israeli attacks.
Then on June 16th, 2005, Ray appeared at the "Mock Impeachment Hearings" of moonbat kind Rep. John Conyers and distributed anti-Isreal literature, causing DNC mouthpiece Howard Dean to disavow it as "anitsemtic". Just seven days after 9/11 McGovern let loose his hatred of Israel in a this letter to the CS Monitor. The following article from Jacob Laskin in Frontpage Magazine, from June of 2005 details that letter and more of Ray McGovern's 'views', specifically:
"But the most enthusiastic advocate of anti-Israel conspiracies was Ray McGovern. In a letter to the Christian Science Monitor just days after the 9-11 attacks, McGovern berated Americans for failing to “understand why so many of [the Middle East’s] people are willing to commit terrorist acts against the US,” and called for a “US approach that is less biased toward our Israeli friends.” And he was just getting started. “The war on Iraq was just as much prompted by the strategic objectives of the state of Israel as it was the strategic objectives of the United States,” he explained in an interview with the left-wing Sojourners magazine, ominously expressing his amazement at the “confluence of objectives” between American and Israeli policy makers. Writing in January 2003 in the Miami Herald, McGovern claimed that Israeli officials were “egging Bush on” to levy war against Iraq—all part of their master plan to strengthen their “ability to work their will in the lands seized from the Arabs in 1967 and 1973.” On yet another occasion, McGovern wondered: “Why is it that the state of Israel has such pervasive influence over our body politic?” - Frontpage Magazine - Questionable Intelligence.
As a side note, I find it hilarious as his two children go to the cameras to announce their 'lawsuit', it get basically no coverage as Israel is going about kicking the hell out of all Ray's friends. Poetic justice, no?
Moreover, Ray is the author of the "War for Oil" mantra.
""I have initials for why I think we went to war in Iraq," McGovern said. "O.I.L. O-I-L, O is for oil, I is for Israel and L is for logistics, as in when we have Iraq we have a foothold and a number of bases strategically placed in the Middle East so we can be in control over there and also to protect Israel."
Quite a theory when you're paying three-bucks a gallon. Well, no one said the quy was smart. Yet he was smart enough to "keep in touch" with the rogues - like Plame and others - still within the agency, who had been working behind the to "keep America" at bay throughout the years. 9/11 gave him the 'in' to finally pull the same thrill that agency rogues got when they got Nixon. He have him a chance to shame and take America down yet once again. Yet Ray isn't alone in his doings, as we know from other great research done over the last three years, The tenacles are long.
Yet in the Plame Game, Ray has orchestrated the happenings from the beginning- being a long time associate of Joe Wilson, and fueled by George Soros's big bucks, there are other playas in this game as well. Again, the Plame Game is only the tip of a very large iceberg of sedition which is rift throughout our MSM and educational facilities, far too much to go into in this post.
But for now let's keep it simple, and begin at the beginning. The I've often quoted James Lewis's article from American Thinker last year that nailed the rogue operation in it's tracks. Here is the gist:
"The CIA has to know all about the French forgery, just as it knows that Joseph Wilson’s famous trip to Niger was pure bilgewater. Nobody sends a has-been diplomat to Africa to drink mint tea with corrupt old President Tandja Mamadou, expecting to discover whether Mamadou has secretly been selling nuke materials to Saddam.
That’s pure Inspector Clousseau.”
Which is why Novak found the story so interesting and wrote the column that started the circus. But Novak had more than a little nudge by way of a little visit on the street by a "friend of Wilson":
"Let's call it the "Wilson Sting":
"In a strange twist in the investigation, the grand jury -- acting on a tip from Wilson -- has questioned a person who approached Novak on Pennsylvania Avenue on July 8, 2003, six days before his column appeared in The Post and other publications, Wilson said in an interview. The person, whom Wilson declined to identify to The Post, asked Novak about the "yellow cake" uranium matter and then about Wilson, Wilson said. He first revealed that conversation in a book he wrote last year. In the book, he said that he tried to reach Novak on July 8, and that they finally connected on July 10. In that conversation, Wilson said that he did not confirm his wife worked for the CIA but that Novak told him he had obtained the information from a "CIA source."
Novak told the person that Wilson's wife worked for the CIA as a specialist in weapons of mass destruction and had arranged her husband's trip to Niger, Wilson said. Unknown to Novak, the person was a friend of Wilson and reported the conversation to him, Wilson said."
So, let's get this straight. Wilson has his friend stalk Mr. Novak, and then walk up to him and say, "Hey Mr. Novak! You heard any good Yellow Cake Stories Lately? Boy! that Wilson guy sure knocked that report out of the park didn't he?"
Of course this makes Wilson the liar we all knew him to be as he knew full well that Novak had been told about his wife and had no obvious objection at the time - because the time wasn't ripe yet.
Wilson wrote "his version" in his so-called book
"Late on Tuesday afternoon, July 8, six days before Robert Novak's article about Valerie and me, a friend showed up at my office with a strange and disturbing tale. He had been walking down Pennsylvania Avenue toward my office near the White House when he came upon Novak, who, my friend assumed, was en route to the George Washington University auditorium for the daily taping of CNN's "Crossfire." He asked Novak if he could walk a block or two with him, as they were headed in the same direction; Novak acquiesced. Striking up a conversation, my friend, without revealing that he knew me, asked Novak about the uranium controversy. It was a minor problem, Novak replied, and opined that the administration should have dealt with it weeks before. My friend then asked Novak what he thought about me, and Novak answered: "Wilson's an asshole. The CIA sent him. His wife, Valerie, works for the CIA. She's a weapons of mass destruction specialist. She sent him." At that point, my friend and Novak went their separate ways. My friend headed straight for my office a couple of blocks away."
Good to see Novak pegged Wilson for the asshole he is, but the greater question - aside from the fact that Wilson is lying his ass off - is WHO was the "secret stalker".
Fitzgerald knows, but it's interesting that that tidbit hasn't leaked out like, oh, the 22 indictments that ex-op/boyfriend of Valerie Plame - Larry C. Johnson predicted.
Seems that not only was Johnson wrong about terrorism, but also about those I spoke of - who are speaking now - who know, and who were not a part of the plan.
