So, what does Matt Cooper do for the rest of his life? drive a bus? First he hands his notes on super deep background over to the court, and then he leaks his email to Iakoff. He comes off as a real slimeball. Isn't all this fuss about Rove just a coverup for revealing what a creep Cooper is? I'll wait for the prosecutor to finish his investigation before deciding about Rove, but I know what I think of Cooper, now.
Thanks! For a raving nutter you sure do good research!
Uh, Cooper didn't turn over any emails, it was his employer. Cooper claims that he was ready to go to jail to protect the source.
The whole point here is this: The RATS know that Rove is the mastermind that defeated them in the last election and they are out to get him. That is it, plain and simple. Getting Rove demoted is necessary for the DUmmies to win more elections. This has nothing to do with Rove doing anything illegal.
Great idea!! Better still, how about having President Bush give Karl Rove a lifetime appointment to SCOTUS?? If you REALLY want to drive the democRats crazy, that would do it for sure!!
I'm well aware of what this is REALLY about, but I still can't believe the democRats are falling into the trap. Just when you think that the democRats can't get any dumber, they do......
spot on post.
That's true, but there's more to it than that. They want George Bush impeached more than anything else in the world. They want it both as payback for Clinton's impeachment, and to completely discredit the War on Terror and all our policies since 9/11.
Everything else they've tried to bring about Bush's impeachment (tying him to Enron, claiming that he knew about the 9/11 attacks and did nothing, claiming that he masterminded the 9/11 attacks so he could have an excuse to go to war, the Downing Street Memos, feel free to add any others I've missed) has failed miserably because there's nothing there, and their allies in the press no longer have the power to make something out of nothing. So this is just the next manufactured scandal to come down the pipe. Once it fails to generate a huge public demand for impeachment, they'll move on to something else.
The RATS just don't get it because they're blinded by hate and their quest for power. They need to stop declaring war on the Bush Administration and declare war on terrorism.
Right you are!!
Anyone who thinks Valerie Plame was the female equivalent of James Bond, doing "covert", undercover operations, is delusional. She was a paper pusher. Period!!
Besides, if an "outting" occured, she did it to herself. Did anyone else have a chance to see her photo with her husband in Vanity Fair. She doesn't look very "undercover" to me.
Funny thing, though. Here I am, sitting at home, laughing at the democRats for attempting to make a big deal of this. At the same time, the DU'ers are lurking here at the Free Republic, trying to find out how upset we are.
I've got just one thing to say to the DU'ers: GOTCHA!! You DUmmies fell into Karl Rove's trap again!! hehehehehe
From the article you pointed me to:
---"If Matt Cooper is going to jail to protect a source," Mr. Luskin told The Journal, "it's not Karl he's protecting."---
That quote is specific to Cooper. There is no mention of Miller. If Rove was Miller's source, why didn't Luskin mention her in the quote. I still believe that Miller has another source, one that the Times does not want to reveal. Why is the Times stone-walling. Who are they protecting?
I don't know why Luskin didn't mention Miller. It could be, like you think, that Rove is not her source. Alternatively, since we don't have the full context Luskin's quote, one possibility is that the question or the conversation was specifically about Cooper. An attorney would be normally be careful not to answer more than was asked.
You are right that Miller might have a different source. I'm just saying that just because Cooper got a release that doesn't necessarily mean that Miller has a different source. She could have multiple sources, even. If Rove gave her a release, but Scooter Libby did not then she still can't talk.
I still believe that Miller has another source, one that the Times does not want to reveal. Why is the Times stone-walling. Who are they protecting?
The Times does not want to reveal any secret sources. If they reveal the name of a source, they are less likely to get secret information next time they talk to someone.
The real question is why Time Magazine released the emails between Cooper and his editor. Time burned Rove. Why would anyone ever talk to a Time reporter again?
So if everyone knew who it was, it really wasn't much of a secret then, was it?
For it supposedly being so secret, Wilson himself loved to brag about his wife being CIA..
One has to wonder if perhaps Ms Miller was actually Rove's source for the info he passed on to Cooper.
It would explain a lot.
Considering the activities of the Dems during the last election, I wouldn't doubt that the Dems outed Valerie Plame themselves in an effort to try and 'emvbarrass' the President.
Look at the effort to influence the election by having the "Killian memos" thing pop out and then the Kerry campaign ad mentioning the memos miraculously showing up right about the same time.
So you CAN respond!!
How about searching FR first.
You'll be amazed at what has been found.
Keywords to look up for you troll: Valerieplame, plame, wilson, jowwilson...
Get the picture?
Text from above link:
"When Wilson wrote an op-ed in The New York Times in July and revealed that he had gone to Niger on a CIA assignment, he called attention to his wife. " -October 2003.
Anything to add?
Did yo know that Valerie Plame recommended Wilson for the Nigeria 'investigation'?
The memo on that was found.
Did you also know that Wilson did very little investigating, but instead spoek to officials in his hotel room and had cushy dinners with said officials?
What kind of an investigation is THAT?
LOL, you didn't even read the articles at the links, did you?
Welcome to FR DUer.
Yes, I know you're a troll.
I like how it took you a day or two to come up with an answer.
