Er? The damage is pretty much done in outing Valerie Plame as a CIA operative. Whether Novak changes his story now is irrelevant. It's like repenting after beating someone over the head with the nearest blunt object. The damage is already done, brother.

We've always thought about this in the context of what is compromised in terms of national security. What operations? What agents? What networks that have been put into place during her career.That was the focus of our thinking. I will tell you that increasingly people are asking that question.

LMAO...I wasn't talking about you Trumpy, but I find it interesting that you jumped to such an agressive defensive posture in no time. Hmmm.Did I touch a nerve?
There you go again with your fantastic theories and your "ability" to distort reality.I guess it works in your little world.I made a comment about Novak and how he can't be trusted because the "operative' is now just an "analyst". Nowhere in my post did I imply Novak should reveal his sources if that's what YOU are implying. By the way, CNN hired Carville and Carlson...you don't hear me complaining about them do you?

It is my opinion that this could have serious implications IF AGAIN, Wilson's wife is indeed a CIA operative and IF Rove or someone close to him leaked the info. to Novak. It could be serious enough for a felony charge and a conviction.You disagree? So are you saying there could be no serious implications if it's proven true that someone leaked info. to blow the cover of a CIA operative?

Justice Department Launches Full Criminal Investigation Into the Leak of a C.I.A. Officer's Identity

13 mins ago.

1. It might not be a matter of "routine" anymore since very few complaints ever get beyond a preliminary investigation. (nytimes)

2. I just found out that Joseph Wilson contributed $1000 to George Bush's campaign. Some Bush-Hater, huh?

latest from talking points memo:

Another big problem with Novak's comments on Crossfire today. Today he said ...

Nobody in the Bush administration called me to leak this. In July I was interviewing a senior administration official on Ambassador Wilson's report when he told me the trip was inspired by his wife, a CIA employee working on weapons of mass destruction.

But then there's this passage in a July 22nd article in Newsday ...

Novak, in an interview, said his sources had come to him with the information. "I didn't dig it out, it was given to me," he said. "They thought it was significant, they gave me the name and I used it."
I'd say the story's changed.

Meanwhile a writer and his blog, and a bunch of screaming leftists on a computer forum know it all. They give incite comments, like Bush gonna get a spanking now, or Bush got no brain Karl and Cheney do, etc.

Of course that is meaningful discussion in the Tonton world.

good ol' drudge...

http://www.ericpoole.blogspot.com/20...88724951484574

Well, I would like to tell a little story today. I looked at drudge a couple of minutes ago, and there was a caption at the top, displaying the "Clinton appointee" Joseph Wilson cutting a check for $1,000 to the Kerry campaign. So I did a quick search on opensecrets.com, and noticed that "George H.W. Bush appointee" Joseph Wilson gave $1,000 to the Bush campaign in 1999. So I emailed Drudge, something along the lines of, "In the interests of journalistic integrity, it would be nice to give the whole story," and proceeded to point them in the direction of the George Bush for President contribution by Wilson. So what do you think he did? You guessed it, within 5 minutes the Kerry contribution was pulled. So much for journalistic integrity.

"Even though I'm a tranquil guy now at this stage of my life, I have nothing but contempt and anger for those who betray the trust by exposing the name of our sources. They are, in my view, the most insidious, of traitors."

post #140 of 498
Here's the Dean article written 6 weeks ago.

http://writ.news.findlaw.com/dean/20030815.html

The White House's Unusual Stonewalling About an Obvious Leak

In the past, Bush and Cheney have gone ballistic when national security information leaked. But this leak - though it came from "two senior administration officials" - has been different. And that, in itself, speaks volumes.

On July 22, White House press secretary Scott McClellan was asked about the Novak column. Offering only a murky, non-answer, he claimed that neither "this President or this White House operates" in such a fashion. He added, "there is absolutely no information that has come to my attention or that I have seen that suggests that there is any truth to that suggestion. And, certainly, no one in this White House would have given authority to take such a step."

So was McClellan saying that Novak was lying - and his sources were not, in fact, "two senior administration officials"? McClellan dodged, kept repeating his mantra, and refused to respond.

Later, McClellan was asked, "Would the President support an investigation into the blowing of the cover on an undercover CIA operative?" Again, he refused to acknowledge "that there might be some truth to the matter you're bringing up." When pressed further, he said he would have to look into "whether or not that characterization is accurate when you're talking about someone's cover."

McClellan's statement that he would have to look into the matter was disingenuous at best. This ten-day old column by Novak had not escaped the attention of the White House. Indeed, when the question was first raised, McClellan immediately responded, "Thank you for bringing that up."

As David Corn has pointed out, what McClellan did not say, is even more telling than what he said. He did not say he was trying to get to the bottom of the story and determine if it had any basis in fact. He did not say the president would not tolerate such activities, and was demanding to know what had happened.

Indeed, as Corn points out, McClellan's remarks "hardly covered a message from Bush to his underlings: don't you dare pull crap like this." Indeed, they could even be seen as sending a message that such crimes will be overlooked.

Frankly, I am astounded that the President of the United States - whose father was once Director of the CIA - did not see fit to have his Press Secretary address this story with hard facts. Nor has he apparently called for an investigation - or even given Ambassador and Mrs. Wilson a Secret Service detail, to let the world know they will be protected.

This is the most vicious leak I have seen in over 40 years of government-watching. Failure to act to address it will reek of a cover-up or, at minimum, approval of the leak's occurrence - and an invitation to similar revenge upon Administration critics.

Oh grow up! We've already been over this ( you probably didn't even read the post ). You know as well as I do you guys would do the same thing if the roles were reversed.

Look Bush lied. There is no other possibilty. If he'll do that he might do other things ( isn't that what you guys were saying about Clinton? ).

We don't want a president like that.

And he's been getting away with many things we don't agree with for quite sometime now.

If he's even half as bad as we suspect he deserves what's coming to him.

When the war was about to start there was a bunch of screaming rightwingers on this forum ( screaming for blood that is ). Truly disgusting. Not even willing to ask if this was ethical. Not even questioning if the president was right about Iraq. Just willing to go along. So willing to jump on the war bandwagon so we could kick some Iraqi butt ( revenge for 911 as if that had anything to do with it )!

Just the attitude dubbya was counting on I might add.

I remember one guy saying it was ok if we get the Iraqi oil. Just imagine how cheap gas will be. I also think he said why should we wait to attack? Why should we wait until mushroom clouds are spreading through his neighborhood? This is the other smart mentality you would have us embrace?

Well, things didn't quite turn out that way did they?
There were no WOMD, he didn't even have a delivery system, and gas prices are higher than I care to think about.

Larger anyalsis in hindsight of the situation in regard to the rest of the world shows how illogical this war, the money spent, and the reasons for it were.

So what the heck are you talking about? What are you comparing this situation to?


Also I've talked to a few lawyers that didn't know squat. They are people also. Yes for the present there is no formaly established crime. But there is a heck of a lot of evidence in that direction.

I'll tell you what I see. You're worried this isn't going to just blow over.
That's why you're in defense mode.

I have been trying to tell you guys ( SDW, Trumpetman, Scott ) there are alot of people out there very angry with our president. You don't seem to be listening. They don't like liars, they don't like mismanagement, and they don't like the direction where this country is going under Bush rule.

Well you had better just keep on smiling but better put a coathanger in your mouth at night. I think one way or another your precious, misbehaving president will suffer for his misdeeds.

And it's interesting to hear Novak talk about White House arrogance.

http://www.intellivu.com//main.asp?b...ovak092903.htm

"Last week's Gallup Poll putting Bush's approval rating at 50 percent and showing him trailing Wesley Clark and John Kerry in trial heats is dismissed by the president's managers as the dreaded third-year presidential syndrome that was overcome by Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan with fourth-year landslides. However, those poll numbers take on new meaning in light of Bush's altered 2004 outlook. Replacing the old mantra that there is no way for Bush to lose, panicky Republicans studying the electoral map wonder whether there is any way that they can win.

Dramatic deterioration in the outlook over the last two weeks is reflected in the experience by a Republican businessman in Milwaukee trying to sell $2,000 tickets for Bush's only appearance this year in Wisconsin Oct. 3. In contrast to money flowing easily into the Bush war chest everywhere until now, he encountered stiff resistance. Well-heeled conservative businessmen offered to write a check for $100 or $200, but not $2,000. They gave one reason: Iraq [...]

The clamp on their wallets, they said, derived from their feeling that Iraq was "an albatross," and that "there is no end in sight." The performance by Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld particularly came under fire. The U.N. speech made matters worse, in the eyes of these non-contributors, with the president going "hat in hand" to the General Assembly.

Another domestic issue is continuing loss of industrial jobs, and that does not ease Republican anxiety. It causes hard analysis of electoral maps that poses difficult questions. Is it realistic to think about Bush winning big industrial belt states won by Al Gore in 2000 -- Michigan, Illinois and Pennsylvania? How good are chances for Bush to win West Virginia for a second straight time? Would Missouri slip to the Democrats if Richard Gephardt is on the ticket?

No wonder the arrogance quotient at the White House is diminishing. Reporters regularly on that beat say they have been getting their telephone calls returned the last two weeks."

Really? I can think of many other possibilities. What even gives you the impression that he lied? What evidence do have that he did? That's a pretty heavy charge and you'd better be able to back it up.

I agree completely that in the interests of Justice, if someone at the White House violated the law, that person should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Make an example of them even.

But we first have to figure out
1. if a law was broken
and
2. who did it

We know neither of these things right now, so it's irresponsible for us to speculate any further.

Of course, it's interesting that you've yet to bother to provide us with any evidence. In the absence of evidence, there's no reason for me to burden myself with thinking through all the alternative possibilities.

In the real world, then there is no evidence for a charge, responsible people don't run their mouth.

In regards to your editied post........the most damning evidence is his speech about why we should go to war.

Now I suppose you're going to say " What if he was given false info? "

Please! That's soooooooo stupid!

On the one hand if he doesn't check these things out and was given false info he's ineffective and shouldn't be president ( at best ). After all this was a pretty important issue. He's president for christ's sake! Can't he do his job?

On the other ( and the more likely of the two ) he was really pushing for this war. He gave the impression that he would go to war at any cost. So connect the dots!

It's really pretty much out in the open for all to see. Obfuscation won't help you here.

The way the leak occurred and what happened after Novak published his article naming Plame.

The call was made to several reporters telling them about Plame. Only Novak wrote about it. I belive Time did too later that week.

They were trying to discredit Wilson... trying to make the suggestion that his wife sent him to Nigeria and that this was somehow insidious...

AFTER Novak named Plame... another round of calls went out to reporters trying to stir the pot and get them to look closer at Wilson and his trip in Nigeria. The reporters didn't bite because they didn't think there was a story there.

That's what's being reported. I think several reporters at this point KNOW who leaked... and White House insiders know who leaked... they're basically ratting them out to the post but not naming names... yet.

I thought this thread was specifically about the Novak/Wilson/Plame situation, not the Iraq war.

It seemed that you were contending that Bush lied about the Novak situation which didn't make sense considering that he hasn't commented publicly on it, yet.

Now that you're talking about Bush lying about the reasons for the Iraq War, it's clear that you've gone off on a tangent.

It seemed that you were contending that Bush lied about the Novak situation which didn't make sense considering that he hasn't commented publically on it, yet.

Now that you're talking about Bush lying about the reasons for the Iraq War, it's clear that you've gone off on a tangent.

Sorry that won't work either.

It's clearly connected.

That's a completely different topic though jimmac.

We're talking about who's leaked the Plame story to Novak...

The only person really possibly lying about it at the moment is Novak... he's fudging his story a bit. I believe to protect his source.

Also... if Rove had a part in it... he lied to the press secretary... but that's not against the law.

How won't it work?

The connection seems to go like this:

Bush Lies (Uranium)
Wilson Counters
Novak Writes
Plame Worries
CIA Counters
White House Denies
Novak Backpedals
JD Investigates

At this point, you cannot say Bush has lied about Novak/Plame/Wilson, as clearly he hasn't.

I think several reporters at this point KNOW who leaked... and White House insiders know who leaked...

I agree completely. The 500 pound elephant here is not "will novak be forced to disclose his sources"

What has got to have the WH shakin in their boots is the fact that they were SO zealous in making sure this information got out there that they now have SIX people who know who leaked it from the WH.

And how much you wanna bet that most of these S-I-X have better reputations then novak. If any of the S-I-X start to name names then as homer says.. "Doh!"

What do you think this is all about? You'll have to do better than that.

As I said before obfuscation won't help here.

If you are going to make a statement that Bush lied about Novak/Wilson/Plame, and you steadfastly want to claim that it is true, then point us to some proof.

Conjecture does not equal truth.

Drawing your conclusion that Bush lied about N/W/P, because he lied about the Niger uranium deal, is a stretch. You must be very limber.
