Because that's the way the press wants it. There's nothing to Roves involvement, but it makes a good pro-democrat story for the summer.
Of course. It's terrorists they want to protect from torture, not Republicans.
Johnson is a Chrissy Matthews boy.
these guys are obviously anti-bush.
And just how long do these idiots think that the internet has been in existence to check out their _hits. I mean, it is not exactly like the Switft Boat Vets, or Blather's forgeries didn't happen.
OTOH given how clueless this guy is about the internet it is entirely possible he failed to get a clue on terrorism as well. Just another useful idiot.
WOW - Everyone who works for the CIA is an under cover agent officer. GOBBLEDGOOK to the fullest.
Col. Patrick Lang (retired, former intel officer) "It's the thought...the nobility of what you are asking this person to do...you will protect this person as one of your beloved sons...very very profound trust, empathic relationship...this person's fate depends on whether he/she was covered in this way or that way...otherwise you've lost them. If you start messing around with the essential humanity of the identities of these agents...it's a very very serious thing.
Davod McMichael (former agent): This trust was abused by those in power...agents around the world...these are human beings...abusers have agendas of their own.
Jim Marcinkowski (former CIA case officer): It's a very personal...goings on between that person and the CIA case officer...abuse...don't care...agents could be killed...
Rep Louise Slaughter (D) NY: Have you ever had a case like this, where someone from the White House has outed someone from one of your agencies? My anger...I can't really express it...
All the stooges in unison: ROVE BAD, BUSH BAD, ALL AGENTS ALL OVER THE WORLD IN MORTAL JEOPARDY DUE TO EVIL BUSHCO...
You are exactly right. The people making these statements are the ones responsible for 911. Clinton cronies.
And for GOD'S SAKE, we aren't talking about recruited foreign intelligence agents here!!! We are talking about the suburban wife of a Democratic Party operative!!! Jeez!!! What an utter farce!!!
Remember, Johnson trained with Plame in the CIA. Thus you have a personal friendship clouding the issue -- aside from the fact that Johnson is a born-again dipstick.
A day or two after Wilson states in public that his wife wasn't undercover, acknowledging what was clear to all who had the slightest connection with reality, a fired CIA employee, who had a NYTimes article published Aug 2001 claiming the war on terror was overblown, blames Bush for not firing Rove for the purported crime of exposing Wilson's "undercover" wife.
As Rush says, you couldn't make this stuff up.
Funny, I was lurking at DU today and they were all saying how our CIA is just a terrorist organization, but they are just pretending to be concerned about the CIA so they can get Bush.
Patrick Lang (alzheimers patient): I've always treated such outbursts with extreme hostility...here we have an example of someone in responsibility...breakdown...deliberate disclosure...bleeechhhhh...
Jim Marcinkowski (fired by Porter Goss): I can't debate a senior official in the WH, for example...I may be good but not that good...when you look at where the disclosure is coming from, someone as senior as Karl Rove, that's huge...
David Mac Michael (doddering fool): Breeakdown here, Watergate...certainly careless, thoughtless use of an intelligence operation for non-intel purposes...very serious consequences...
Larry Johnson, TV personality: I say this as a currently registered Republican...I wish someone had the courage to stand up and call the ugly dog what it is...where are these men and women who have the courage to stand up??? I expect better behavior out of Republicans.
Larry Johnsons problem is that he was so excited about his role as Leftist Infiltrator of the Central Intelligence Agency that he forgot how intelligence was in fact not central to the agency of his person.
This story was trash a week ago, when we found out Rove got the info from whats-his-face conservative reporter.
What are you going to do when a REAL CIA covert op gets outed?
People here are making such a production out of nothing.
Please save your energy for the real thing.
We're fighting a world-war, and the libs are worried that Rove repeated what every reporter already knew.
Have they cement betwixt their ears?
That is a thought - does OpenSecrets have a listing of Larry's political contributions over the last two election cycles?
