Reports of Rove as CIA leak should engender outrage
The Columbia, Missouri Daily Tribune ^ | Wednesday, July 13, 2005 | Michael Young

Posted on 07/13/2005 12:59:22 PM PDT by rface

Editor, the Tribune:

From a few reports, I have heard Karl Rove is the one who is mentioned in the Time magazine reporter’s notes. If he is the one who retaliated against the CIA agent by leaking her name to the press, he should be immediately fired, arrested and prosecuted.

Where is the outraged press? The press and the Republican Party repeatedly attacked and prosecuted former President Bill Clinton for lying about a consensual sex act that had no direct effect on any American, and yet the Bush administration lied to all of Americans about the reason for the Iraq war. This lie has cost Americans more than $150 billion of our tax dollars and over 1,500 American lives and counting.

We know Rove has been in charge of the dirty politics and smear campaigns against Bush’s opponents for many years, dating back to the Texas election in which he smeared Anne Richards. He smeared Sen. John McCain and his family in the South Carolina primary. He was in charge when his party attacked John Kerry, who is an American war hero! Where is the outrage?

Now we hear he has illegally leaked information to Robert Novak, a reporter for the right-wing agenda, about the wife of a former U.S. ambassador, Joseph Wilson. Wilson questioned the Bush case for the war against Iraq, and Rove retaliated by telling the press that Wilson’s wife was an undercover CIA agent, therefore jeopardizing her safety and future career. Where is the outraged press?

Hey Michael Young.. You're an A--hole!

The press and the Republican Party repeatedly attacked and prosecuted former President Bill Clinton for lying about a consensual sex act that had no direct effect on any American,

and we have been paying the price in the incidences of sexual diseases and misconduct ever since with kids and young adults. Some shining example that Bubba IS... !!!

Sometimes I think these people really, truly, never bother to find out the facts. They just find out a nugget of a piece of possible information, and begin their screed.

If he is the one who retaliated against the CIA agent by leaking her name to the press, he should be immediately fired, arrested and prosecuted.

And if Rove killed JFK he should be prosecuted for that.. what about presumption of innocence? What about balance? What about the they NY Time and Time Magazine have had the stories for two years and can't make anything out of it and YET still every day there 10 new stories. Meanwhile President Bush today is at a black expo in Indiana - arranged last year by Rove - where he stands to gain little and isn't running for anything - he is there on principle to reach out and help people and that barely gets any press. That is really sad.

This is rehashing the same tripe we've heard all along. I guess they think that if they tell the lie often enough, it stops being a lie. Silly sods.

Scanning newspapers around the country today, it is obvious that the MoveOn minions have been given their orders to write Rove letters, and given the text to paste into them.

Except that the terrorists (sorry BBC) were plotting and planning while Bill was having 'fun' with Monica.

Where is the outraged press?

A) Still trying to figure out what "double super secret background" means.

B) Going to jail to hide their role in creating the "leak."

Clinton lied "under oath" about sexual harrassment with a subordinate.

Wilson lied about who sent him to Niger.

Rove never lied, named, or outed the CIA liar.

I knew that John Kerry was a war hero. He said so every 5 minutes.

He neglected to mention that at the end of his war, he had sided with the enemy.

He must listen to NPR. They just reported that Rove is the target of the investigation, but according to the Special Prosecutor Rove is not. But who wopuld know better, the S.P. that's in the grand jury room or NPR which has no political bias?,

Wel... I heard the original leak, long before Cooper talked to Rove was from Dem staffers on the Intelligence Committee. That's how Coop knew what questions to ask.

Where's the outrage?

If you want a real treat Michael Medveds guest is Ted Rall. Rall is trying to portray Plame as running around in the mountains of Tora Bora fighting terrorists while the evil Karl Rove is trying to get her killed.

A resounding second to this post. The nickname for the paper is THE MANURIAN. A sickening piece of liberal trash put together by students manipulated by liberal professors. But hey, they are sensitive and diverse, except when it comes to opinion.

Benedict Arnold was a hero to both sides of his war as well.

Nothing to be proud of.

John Kerry was a genuine traitor (who partnered with people who plotted to assassinate elected congressmen in America) and what Rove did does not match this in any way.

It is crazy hearing Ted Rall get his thong up too tight over this. I heard him speak (along with other editorial cartoonists) and he was a lone voice on the left calling for Clinton's impeachment over lying under oath. Now he seems to think that wasn't so bad. I don't expect him to be consistent. He is really a lightweight hater though. (just relaying some of what I am hearing on the radio right now, really unrelated to the first part of this post which is a reply).

"Wilson lied about who sent him to Niger."

Really? I keep seeing folks make this claim, but I haven't yet [I've asked many times] seen the 'lie' quoted. Can you tell me what Wilson said when he 'lied' - because I keep seeing quotes where he said he was sent by agency officials. Which is what the Senate Intel Committee said.

Rove didn't leak squat. Whoever did is being protected by the New York Times and Judith Miller.

Of course, the Democrats' strategy is to discredit Bush by bringing up one idiotic scandal after another. The stupid liberals in the news media, of course, play right along. They seem not to notice or care that they're discrediting themselves in the process.
