Wilson on Keith Olbermann

AJ Strata caught the appearance and has the details.

"You can tell a lot about a ‘news story’ by the kind of media interest it attracts. Seems only a ratings desperate far lefty like Olbermann was interested in getting used by the Wilsons. I think much of the Wilsons problems with the media is no one trusts them anymore given all their lies and games they played on the media the first time around. Recall that Wilson was pushing the idea he had caught the administration used forrged intelligence to lie to American about the Iraqi risk, and that he had proof the intelligence was forged because he himself debunked it. All that turned out to be false (and likely lies) and the media learned the hard way not to trust what the Wilsons say - in general. So here we have two ratings desperate people on TV and we reap the results.

Discussion framed by Novak statement. The marginal difference of “Mrs Wilson” (the wife of Joe Wilson) vs “Ms Plame” as some big deal is really scraping for an issue. Mrs. Wilson was outed by the secret source (aka Armitage) so I am not impressed to say the least.

Wilson’s response is jumbled and silly. He claims he is not watching Novak’s comments - right. He claims Novak said in a phone call at the time he had a CIA source, then in the story mentioned two administration sources (which is all consistent). And when he asked Novak which it was he said he mispoke (confusing ’source’ with ‘confirmation source’). These marginal linguistic games only confuse those easily diverted by irrelevant facts. The question always plays on the definition of ’source’ and whether it includes the confirmation sources.

Wilson then goes on to claim Harlow used well known code words to explain Novak was going to expose Valerie in a dangerous way. I find that too funny. If Valerie was so classified Harlow would not have been able to initially confirm her analyst position with Novak and would have known to say nothing at all on the first call. That is also standard CIA procedure: neither confirm or deny truly covert information."


Read the rest. Just a re-note on Harlow. I told you back here he was full of crap as the suggestion that he had to "hang up" with Novak and call him back on Plame, when all he had to do was put her name into the computer on his desk.

Well like a lot of this made up story, I'll tell you now that this case hasn't a chance of getting near any jury, but then again it wasn't intended to.

UPDATE: In case we forgot, there was a time when Joe thought the Iraq War was a good idea. The age old question - "What changed"? I think that picture is beginning to come together.

Wilson is a liar, but the funny part is that he's not even close to a bad one.

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.

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 …
