A fitting place for Armitage, Powell, Fitzgerald, and the Wilsons.

Hear, hear! Great article. I can't understand why Fitz's 'case' against Libby hasn't been withdrawn or tossed out yet? I hope Libby and maybe even Rove demand the justice that was denied them.

Corrupt & evil intentions exposed....and they will be.
They always will be...eventually.
This column could initiate a special brand of justice for Armitage, Powell....
..death of their reputation by a thousand cuts!

Dicky Armitage should be forced to pay Scooter Libby's legal bills PLUS cover the cost of the Fitzgerald debacle (maybe get his buddy 'Colon' Powell kick in some bucks from the pay he gets from all the boards he sits on). Then he should have to listen to Joe Wilson for six hours every weekend.

Armitage's leak was not innocent, idle chatter. And worse, much worse, was his cravenness in not telling the truth to the president he supposedly served. Armitage told Powell on "October 1, 2003. If he felt his loyalty to Powell required him to call his boss on that date, he had a greater loyalty to tell the president before the sun set that day. The facts that neither he nor Powell told the president, that both allowed the Democrats and the media to damage the Bush administration for almost three years afterward and let Scooter Libby's life to be ruined, disqualifies both Armitage and Powell from ever holding public office again. Let them retire in the ignominy they deserve. "

Wait a minute . . . Bob Novak kept silent and escapes blame all this time while Fitzgerald and the Dems ruined an innocent man's life? By any measure of fairness and justice, journalists should not be allowed to hide behind their sources. The special privilege of protecting the source is becoming as evil as the profession of journalism itself.

"It was an act of supreme disloyalty for Armitage to keep the fact that he was Novak's source from the president -- and thus the public -- for three years. The same goes for Powell. There was no reason whatever -- other than the desire to do political damage to the administration -- for Armitage and Powell to remain silent while the 527 Media and the Dems fired a three-year long barrage of political fire at the President, the Vice President, Karl Rove and Scooter Libby. We expect the Dems and the political-activist media to do this. But we don't expect the craven, cowardly conduct of Armitage and Powell.
I'd love to be a fly on the wall at the Powell's home right now.

There's only one name for it: the Armitage Award.
Nope, it needs to be called the Armitage-Powell award. For "uncommon treachery, beneath and beyond the call of knavery." Excellent description of two bureaucrat scumbags. Hock-spit!
The ever-responsive George Tenet asked the Justice Department to open a criminal investigation and, after overcoming objections, it did.

Richard Armitage is a snake like a lot of political hacks in Washington. But the real issues here is how the media can take "nothing" and turn it into "something",because that's what the "outing" of Valerie Plame was, a big NOTHING !!!

Babbin hits the nail on the head. If true, which it sounds like it is, both Armitage and Powell are not only guilty of disloyalty but of lying by omission.
For a man such as Powell to participate in this kind of pettiness is unforgiveable. He is a retired General and CJC who swore an oath of Duty, Honor, Country. He has broken that oath and therefore should be shunned.
To my knowledge he has not addressed this issue either publicly or privately. If he was not guilty of these accusations, he should have addressed the issue by now, IMO.

(Just when you think it's never going to happen, that's when it happens.)
Powell was always a very political general - you don't often make CJCS if you aren't - but this particular sequence of events is so patently disgraceful that I can't help hoping, even now, that we don't know all the particulars. But the point was always strictly political, and how they've howled over the three years hence!
So what's in it for Powell? A Vice-Presidential nomination that he could already have had? One under a Democratic president? One under Hillary?
This is all mere speculation, but the utter dishonor of his silence in the matter between the time of the accusation and the time of the convening of the investigation is anything but.
