Current and former intelligence officials were surprised by a recent news report revealing that a group of agency analysts celebrated a policy victory of sorts several years ago by issuing a special coin after they had prevented President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney from ordering an attack on Syria’s secret desert nuclear facility.

Is this the same set of traitors who claimed Iran is/was not working on fissionable weapons?

Unfortunately, most of the people who work there and NSA are libtards.

Yes.

Treason.

Yes.

Valerie Plame's friends.

Yes. I believed at the time and still believe what we witnessed in the Plame/Wilson episode was an attempted coup d'etat by elements of the CIA.

This subject has been hashed out a thousand ways since Cheney’s book came out.

This fits a pattern. Shortly after 9/11, Jordan captured Iraqi an intelligence agent (Ahmed Hikmat Shakir) who attended the the January 2000 Kuala Lumpur al Qaeda summit. Saddam Hussein publicly screamed bloody murder, and the CIA convinced Jordan to release Shakir to the Iraqis. Thus the CIA interfered with a key piece of evidence that would have directly linked Saddam Hussein to 9/11.

That always bugged the hell out of me.

Now, to dredge up an episode from the war that I noted at the time but which has been flushed down the memory hole.

During the invasion, thanks to the embedded reporters, we knew that the troops had captured a factory that manufactured nerve agent. The plant manager was an Iraqi general and the plant was secured by Iraqi infantry. It was not on any UN maps, it had been kept secret from the UN inspectors.

Then after a couple of days they announced that no, come to find out, it wasn’t nerve agent at all, it was agricultural pesticide. Then they found barrels of the stuff in Iraqi army ammo dumps and again, after a couple of days, it was announced that it was agricultural pesticide, again, after all.

This happened at least three times; in one occasion the reporters at the scene got sick.

Nerve agent, diluted and spread on fields is agricultural pesticide and agricultural pesticide, at full strength and spread on Iranians, is nerve agent. Manufactured by the Iraqi Army and stored in Iraqi Army ammo dumps it is clearly nerve agent.

So, in other words, we found the WMD and then re-defined it out of existence. Considering that Bush very nearly lost his presidency over the issue, I wondered then who had the power to bury the find that confirmed everything they had said going in. It would probably be the same people who denied the fact that Saddam had sent his agents to Niger in search of yellow cake, and the same people who denied that Iran was developing nuclear weapons. And, now we know, denied the same thing with respect to Syria.

They need to be in prison right alongside Aldrich Ames. For life.

Remember that CIA denied three times that Atta was in Prague to meet with the Iraqi Embassy.

Three times the Czechs announced that they had witnessed Atta meeting with Iraqi intel and three times, within two hours, CIA went public to deny it.

But when you dug into CIA’s denial, you find out that all they were saying was, they weren’t there and couldn’t confirm it. But the headline said it wasn’t true, while the fine print in the story said what was true, that CIA simply wasn’t there.

So why the insistence that the meeting wasn’t true when the truth was they weren’t there (and the Czechs were).

If agents and former agents start singing about this under subpoena, I wonder if Joe "mint tea" Wilson and Valerie "Mata Hari of the typing pool" Plame will be tragically implicated.

No doubt.

And Valerie Plame was probably part of their circle.

Nothing less than insubordination and they should be rooted out and fired -- I should think for cause. Every one of them.

I might as well throw a few more things in the stack as some of our Freepers have.
Between 330 tons and 350 tons of yellow cake uranium ore sold to the Canadian power company after many years being held under wraps in Iraq along with the estimated 1.7 tons of 10% or more enriched uranium. All would have been if we did not invade, eventually spun through the improved centrifugal systems Iraq sought through the former eastern block European sources into fission grade uranium. A simple fact.
I would like to punch in the face the millions of morons who over the past eight years or so have claimed, Iraq had no weapons of mass destruction. Clowns. The very thing that keeps Iran in recent years on a world wide watch, in their similar pursuit to gain atomic weapons.
