No, GUEST, don't make me feel one bit better to get on Bush about his policies but it is his policies I have problems with... Lotta folks think that I hate Bush... No, I can't say I'm capable of hatin' anyone... Maybe I am but I ain't met anyone yet that I can say I hate... Yeah, I hate some of their actions... That's were Bush come into play... Actually, I don't think Bush has a clue since he is overly dependent on other folks to make policy.... I feel sorry fir him...

But, hey, I come here a couple times a day and vent against what I see as dumb policy... If I went about my business like Bush I would fail... In my real life I understand that I need the entire community behind me and that's why I choose to do my rantin' here.... Over the last 20 years I have organized more communtiy stuff with Repubs than Dems 'er Greens so I know how to live with Repubs... Hey, yeah, they know I'm a Green but guess waht??? If it comes down to gettin' somethjin' done in the communtiy, I'z the guy they want in charge...

Sorry you couldn't find the article... It was good 'un an' the piccure weren't too hatefull considerin' that I had just finished playing two long sets at the Luray Farmer's Market...

Bobert:

I can't find the Luray thing. Maybe you have a good side. I see some humorous posts here and there.

I would like to say it is my opinion that all this moaning and groaning about the war and blaming it on Bush is self destructive, non constructive and counter productive.

Things are not going to change for the better unless poeple want them to and work toward it.

It sounds like people want America to loose. Otherwise why would they keep saying we are loosing. Makes me think they are imbeded Al quaeda poisoning public opinion. Believing you can win is 75% of winning. Believing you will loose is 90% of loosing.

The same thing goes for that hotel you bought. A big difficult task but doable. I did a big old 1875 house like that. Rehabbed it, kept the "Country Victorian" atmosphere, Rented rooms and made a sucess out of the disaster that the previous owner made out of it.

Positive attitudes accomplish things. Negative attitudes don't.

I don't think it is necessary to throw pro-Bush rallys. Bush ain't my hero. I don't like everything he does, immigration is one, but by God we have to win this one. Otherwise the attacks will come home when we leave Iraq. And not because of the war because we were under attack before the war. We have taken the battle to the enemy.

France is a warning about what will happen here.

So go ahead and spew on Bush. Then tell me if it makes you feel any better.

And yes, progress is being made in Iraq whether you believe it or not. All you have to do is look for it because it does not get through the news media.

All they want is blood and guts, people dying, things exploding, fires burning, anything horrible. How often do you see something good in the news about anything? Even when you can find something it's something like "pistol packing Granny confronts and shoots intruder"

Breaking News! Karl Rove's Garage
Posted by Greg Sheffield on October 17, 2005 - 14:27.

Associated Press writer Darlene Superville wrote a serious expose on Karl Rove's garage. The headline: "Karl Rove's Garage Proves to Be Typical"

Superville wondered if Rove can "organize his own garage? Can the master of Bush's political planning figure out where to put the ladders, paint cans and cardboard boxes?"

Below are the earth shattering revelations uncovered by Superville:

    There was no car in the garage. And the stuff left behind turned out not to be much different from what gathers dust inside most American garages.

    The inventory, seen from outside:

    *Some cardboard file boxes stacked one on top of the other, labeled "Box 6," "Box 4" and what appears to be "Box 7." No sign of boxes 1, 2, 3 and 5.

    *What appear to be paint cans stacked alongside a folded, folding chair.

    *A rather large wood crate marked "FRAGILE" and painted with arrows indicating which way is up. On top of the crate, two coolers.

    *A tall aluminum ladder.

    *A snow shovel leaned in front of another cardboard box.

    *Wicker baskets inside of wicker baskets on top of a shelf running the length of the rear wall. Transparent plastic storage bins crammed with indiscernible stuff. Another cardboard box.

    *In one corner, the rear wheel of a bicycle sticks out, along with what appears to be a helmet.

    *Another ladder, this one green, leaning sideways.

THE PLAME GAME Analyst says Wilson 'outed' wife in 2002

November 5, 2005

Vallely said, citing CIA colleagues, that in addition to his conversations with Wilson, the ambassador was proud to introduce Plame at cocktail parties and other social events around Washington as his CIA wife.

    "That was pretty common knowledge," he said Friday. "She's been out there on the Washington scene many years."

    If Plame were a covert agent at the time, Vallely said, "he would not have paraded her around as he did."

In fact it looks like Wilson even admitted she wasn't a covert agent years ago:

    Victoria Toensing – who worked on the legislation in her role as chief counsel for the chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence – said Plame most likely was not a covert agent when White House aides mentioned her to reporters.

    The federal code says the agent must have operated outside the United States within the previous five years. But Plame gave up her role as a covert agent nine years before the Rove interview, according to New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof.

    Kristof said the CIA brought Plame back to Washington in 1994 because the agency suspected her undercover security had been compromised by turncoat spy Aldrich Ames.

    Wilson's own book, "The Politics of Truth," states he and Plame both returned from overseas assignments in June 1997 and never again were stationed overseas – placing them in Washington at least six years before the 2003 "outing."

    Moreover, asserted Toensing, for the law to be violated, White House aides would have had to intentionally reveal Plame's identity with the knowledge that they were disclosing a covert agent.

Looks like Joe Wilson is the guy who needs to be investigated.

UPDATE :

Turns out Lt. General Tom McInerney, USAF, who also a FOX News analyst, will join Paul Vallely in claiming Joe Wilson consistently mentioned the fact his wife worked at the CIA. Note that the primary legal concern was the supposed leaking of the fact Valeries worked at the CIA. Her role in getting Joe to Niger twice has not been the focus of investigations - yet.

UPDATE:

The list of people who knew about Plame working for the CIA is getting quite large! From the Kerry Campaign to most of NBC News to Victor Davis Hanson….

Amazing.

END UPDATE

Gen Paul Vallely has come forward and claimed Joe Wilson was talking about his CIA wife in the Fox News Green Room - a charge Wilson is denying with threat of legal action.

    "This is slanderous," Wilson wrote. "I never appeared on tv before at least July 2002 and only saw him maybe twice in the green room at FOX.

Well, when was Wilson possibly in the Green Room with Vallely? In reverse chronological order:

January 10th, 2003 (Vallely, Wilson). Wilson was on John Gibson's show this day. Which is why Gibson has similar recollections to General Vallely. Vallely was on Cavuto which airs right before Gibson's show.

November 18, 2002 (Vallely, Wilson). Vallely was scheduled for 1:10, Wilson was to be on after 3:00 PM.

October 1, 2003 (Vallely, Wilson). Wilson was on Fox and Friends in the morning, Vallely on Cavuto. Depending on when Vallely came in to tape his section they could have met up.

September 12, 2002 - they were on the same show at 3:00 PM.

August 20, 2002 (Vallely, Wilson). Wilson was on Greta and Vallely on Cavuto. Depending on when/if things were taped the could have run into each other.

Well, four good opportunities to run into Wilson in the Green Room. BTW, all the guests listed in the same days as these make for potential witnesses. Not to mention all the times Wilson was at Fox and other networks.

MAJOR UPDATE:

I cannot believe how many people are ready to say Joe Wilson himself outed his wife. Now, through a 3rd party recollection, Victor Davis Hanson also recalled Joe Wilson talking about his CIA wife in a Green Room. What a putz he and Fitzgerald both are.

"He was rather open about his wife working at the CIA,"



Posted: November 5, 2005
1:00 a.m. Eastern

By Art Moore
© 2005 WorldNetDaily.com


Valerie Plame appeared in Vanity Fair magazine with her husband Joseph Wilson in January 2004
A retired Army general says the man at the center of the CIA leak controversy, Ambassador Joseph C. Wilson, revealed his wife Valerie Plame's employment with the agency in a casual conversation more than a year before she allegedly was "outed" by the White House through a columnist.

Maj. Gen. Paul Vallely told WorldNetDaily that Wilson mentioned Plame's status as a CIA employee over the course of at least three, possibly five, conversations in 2002 in the Fox News Channel's "green room" in Washington, D.C., as they waited to appear on air as analysts.

Vallely and Wilson both were contracted by Fox News to discuss the war on terror as the U.S. faced off with Iraq in the run-up to the spring 2003 invasion.

Vallely says, according to his recollection, Wilson mentioned his wife's job in the spring of 2002 – more than a year before Robert Novak's July 14, 2003, column identified her, citing senior administration officials, as "an Agency operative on weapons of mass destruction."

"He was rather open about his wife working at the CIA," said Vallely, who retired in 1991 as the Army's deputy commanding general in the Pacific.

Vallely made his claim in an interview Thursday night on the ABC radio network's John Batchelor show.

Vallely told WND that, in his opinion, it became clear over the course of several conversations that Wilson had his own agenda, as the ambassador's analysis of the war and its surrounding politics strayed from reality.

"He was a total self promoter," Vallely said. "I don't know if it was out of insecurity, to make him feel important, but he's created so much turmoil, he needs to be investigated and put under oath."

The only indictment in Special Counsel Patrick Fitzgerald's two-year investigation came one week ago when Vice President Dick Cheney's chief of staff, I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, was charged with one count of obstruction of justice, two counts of making false statements and two counts of perjury in the case. He could face up to 30 years in prison and $1.25 million in fines if convicted on all five counts.

Vallely said, citing CIA colleagues, that in addition to his conversations with Wilson, the ambassador was proud to introduce Plame at cocktail parties and other social events around Washington as his CIA wife.

"That was pretty common knowledge," he said. "She's been out there on the Washington scene many years."

If Plame were a covert agent at the time, Vallely said, "he would not have paraded her around as he did."

"This whole thing has become the biggest non-story I know," he concluded, "and all created by Joe Wilson."

Fitzgerald has been investigating whether Plame's identity was leaked by the White House as retaliation against Wilson for his assertion that the Bush administration made false claims about Iraq's attempt to buy nuclear material in Africa.

Wilson traveled to Niger in February 2002 on a CIA-sponsored trip to check out the allegations about Iraq and wrote up his findings in a July 6, 2003, New York Times opinion piece titled "What I Didn't Find in Africa."

White House defenders insist the aides simply were setting the record straight about Wilson, seeking to put his credibility in context by pointing out it was Plame who helped him get the CIA consulting job. Wilson denied his wife's role initially, but a bipartisan report by the Senate panel documented it.

Wilson declared in the column that his trip revealed the Iraq-Niger connection was dubious, but his oral report to the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence actually corroborated the controversial "16 words" in President Bush's 2003 State of the Union address: "The British government has learned that Saddam Hussein recently sought significant quantities of uranium from Africa."

Libby's charges pertained only to the investigation itself, not the 1982 act that made it illegal to blow a covert U.S. agent's cover.

The Washington attorney who spearheaded the drafting of that law told WND earlier this year that Plame's circumstances don't meet the statute's criteria.

Victoria Toensing – who worked on the legislation in her role as chief counsel for the chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence – said Plame most likely was not a covert agent when White House aides mentioned her to reporters.

The federal code says the agent must have operated outside the United States within the previous five years. But Plame gave up her role as a covert agent nine years before the Rove interview, according to New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof.

Moreover, asserted Toensing, for the law to be violated, White House aides would have had to intentionally reveal Plame's identity with the knowledge that they were disclosing a covert agent.

Busted: Joe Wilson Lied! -Senate Intelligence Committee

The mainstream media is paying little attention to a bombshell in the just-released Senate Intelligence Report on pre-Iraq-war intelligence. The Senate Intelligence Committee basically found that Joe Wilson lied in the course of his histrionics about his trip to Niger, Africa - searching for yellowcake uranium sales to Iraq.

A complete copy of the Senate Intelligence Report, titled "Report on the U.S. Intelligence Community's Prewar Intelligence Assessments on Iraq" issued on July 7, 2004, is provided here.


Busted: Joe Wilson Lied! -Senate Intelligence Committee

As reported in the July 10, 2004, Washington Post:

- - - - - - -

Wilson last year launched a public firestorm with his accusations that the administration had manipulated intelligence to build a case for war. He has said that his trip to Niger should have laid to rest any notion that Iraq sought uranium there and has said his findings were ignored by the White House.

Wilson's assertions -- both about what he found in Niger and what the Bush administration did with the information -- were undermined yesterday in a bipartisan Senate intelligence committee report.

The panel found that Wilson's report, rather than debunking intelligence about purported uranium sales to Iraq, as he has said, bolstered the case for most intelligence analysts. And contrary to Wilson's assertions and even the government's previous statements, the CIA did not tell the White House it had qualms about the reliability of the Africa intelligence that made its way into 16 fateful words in President Bush's January 2003 State of the Union address.

Yesterday's report said that whether Iraq sought to buy lightly enriched "yellowcake" uranium from Niger is one of the few bits of prewar intelligence that remains an open question. Much of the rest of the intelligence suggesting a buildup of weapons of mass destruction was unfounded, the report said.

The report turns a harsh spotlight on what Wilson has said about his role in gathering prewar intelligence, most pointedly by asserting that his wife, CIA employee Valerie Plame, recommended him.

- - - - - - -


- - - - - - -

The report may bolster the rationale that administration officials provided the information not to intentionally expose an undercover CIA employee, but to call into question Wilson's bona fides as an investigator into trafficking of weapons of mass destruction. To charge anyone with a crime, prosecutors need evidence that exposure of a covert officer was intentional.

The report states that a CIA official told the Senate committee that Plame "offered up" Wilson's name for the Niger trip, then on Feb. 12, 2002, sent a memo to a deputy chief in the CIA's Directorate of Operations saying her husband "has good relations with both the PM [prime minister] and the former Minister of Mines (not to mention lots of French contacts), both of whom could possibly shed light on this sort of activity." The next day, the operations official cabled an overseas officer seeking concurrence with the idea of sending Wilson, the report said.

Wilson has asserted that his wife was not involved in the decision to send him to Niger.

"Valerie had nothing to do with the matter," Wilson wrote in a memoir published this year. "She definitely had not proposed that I make the trip."

Wilson stood by his assertion in an interview yesterday, saying Plame was not the person who made the decision to send him. Of her memo, he said: "I don't see it as a recommendation to send me."

The report said Plame told committee staffers that she relayed the CIA's request to her husband, saying, "there's this crazy report" about a purported deal for Niger to sell uranium to Iraq. The committee found Wilson had made an earlier trip to Niger in 1999 for the CIA, also at his wife's suggestion.

The report also said Wilson provided misleading information to The Washington Post last June. He said then that he concluded the Niger intelligence was based on documents that had clearly been forged because "the dates were wrong and the names were wrong."

"Committee staff asked how the former ambassador could have come to the conclusion that the 'dates were wrong and the names were wrong' when he had never seen the CIA reports and had no knowledge of what names and dates were in the reports," the Senate panel said. Wilson told the panel he may have been confused and may have "misspoken" to reporters. The documents -- purported sales agreements between Niger and Iraq -- were not in U.S. hands until eight months after Wilson made his trip to Niger.

Wilson's reports to the CIA added to the evidence that Iraq may have tried to buy uranium in Niger, although officials at the State Department remained highly skeptical, the report said.

Wilson said that a former prime minister of Niger, Ibrahim Assane Mayaki, was unaware of any sales contract with Iraq, but said that in June 1999 a businessman approached him, insisting that he meet with an Iraqi delegation to discuss "expanding commercial relations" between Niger and Iraq -- which Mayaki interpreted to mean they wanted to discuss yellowcake sales. A report CIA officials drafted after debriefing Wilson said that "although the meeting took place, Mayaki let the matter drop due to UN sanctions on Iraq."

According to the former Niger mining minister, Wilson told his CIA contacts, Iraq tried to buy 400 tons of uranium in 1998.

Still, it was the CIA that bore the brunt of the criticism of the Niger intelligence. The panel found that the CIA has not fully investigated possible efforts by Iraq to buy uranium in Niger to this day, citing reports from a foreign service and the U.S. Navy about uranium from Niger destined for Iraq and stored in a warehouse in Benin.

The agency did not examine forged documents that have been widely cited as a reason to dismiss the purported effort by Iraq until months after it obtained them. The panel said it still has "not published an assessment to clarify or correct its position on whether or not Iraq was trying to purchase uranium from Africa."

- - - - - - -

So - Wilson benefitted from a little nepotism. His wife got him an all-expenses-paid little excursion to Niger. And, to make it better, he got a chance to throw mud at the Bush Administration - which was clearly not liked by Mr. Wilson and Ms. Plame from the get-go. As the article makes clear, Ms. Plame had pre-judged the uranium sales story before she even sent her hubby - she pre-judged it as "this crazy report."

In this context, if a "Senior Administration Official" let it be known that Wilson jetted off to Africa to sip sweet tea because his wife got him the gig ... they were right to do so. The fact that Wilson's wife got him the gig - and the fact that Wilson's wife pre-judged the whole purpose of the trip as a "crazy report" - make it crystal clear that Wilson's trip had little value (to put it mildly).

Indeed, as the Senate Intelligence Committee's report made clear, Wilson's trip was so lame that it had the unintended consequence (I'm sure much to Wilson's and Plame's horror) of bolstering the Adminsitration's argument that Iraq had sought uranium in Africa.

No, GUEST A, the reason you are ignorin' the questions I posed to you about the failin's of the Bush administration is because you don't have any reasonable rebuttal and I think that you realize that I ain't the lightweight you were hopin' I was...

As fir the Teribus thing... Obviously you weren't around here when the real Teribus roamed Mudville... Well, there is not one progressive, not one anti-war poster here who if they were here during those days doesn't have quite a bit of respect fir Teribus... If he were a basketball palyer that owner of the team would probably retire his jersey...

Now fir someone to come in and use Teribus's handle is somewhat disrespectfull to the hard, hard work that Teribus did in defending the Bush admibnistrations run up to war... Seems all this imposter has in common with the real one is being against the anti-war folks here in Mudville... Problem is that The Imposter has nuthin' but insults and anme callin' in his arsenal... Kinda like you...

When the going gets tough both of you tend to fall back to the same worn out attack, attacak, attack defense... Yeah, you may see that on occasion I do a little confrontin' my ownself but, hey, if you were to research the body of my contributions here, you'd find that I just happen to bring a lot of substance, both here and above the line...

But you, firgive me, GUEST A and Teribus, seem to be one trick ponies...

I don't say this to be hurtfull but it would be nice if you two couyld bring in a little substance to the discussions...

Bush Orders Staff to Attend Ethics Briefings
White House Counsel to Give 'Refresher' Course; By Jim VandeHei
Washington Post Saturday, November 5, 2005

President Bush has ordered White House staff to attend mandatory briefings beginning next week on ethical behavior and the handling of classified material after the indictment last week of a senior administration official in the CIA leak probe. According to a memo sent to aides yesterday, Bush expects all White House staff to adhere to the "spirit as well as the letter" of all ethics laws and rules. As a result, "the White House counsel's office will conduct a series of presentations next week that will provide refresher lectures on general ethics rules, including the rules of governing the protection of classified information," according to the memo, a copy of which was provided to The Washington Post by a senior White House aide.

I have my fears Bobert, I have my fears,

'Ol Bush will go to whatever extremes ..
.. to protect that fat one.

Those flames in the streets of Mar Del Plata are not as hot as
as the inspiration demonstrated by the crowds listening to Hugo Chavez.

But as I said, 'Ol Bush will go to whatever extremes'

(just think about it)

I have my fears, and there is nothing that can be done about it

Pouring water down a rathole is not my idea of spending ones' time in a wise and productive manner. You coninue to beleive what makes you feel content and smug. Teribus nailed it! And his last 4 lines in his last post exemplify his point.

"I make my points on specific offenses and report others' views on them. I am open to correction, but you'll have to forgive me if I take information in support of the current Administration with a grain of salt, given their reputation for inventing stuff and falsifying the record to serve their unspoken purposes."

Kinda proves the point regarding -

"Ah, the sanctimony, the condescending certainty, the smugness of the inflexibly right!"

You are only open to correction from sources that you approve of, as they are unlikely to support any contention at odds with your view. If that isn't smug I don't know what is.

I think if one were to look into BB's opinion of me these days, since the Getaway, that I would guess that his opinion of me has changed just as mine of him has...

Hello Bobert,

Here I am, I tend not to respond to your posts as experience has shown me, that what beardedbruce has said in this thread about you is absolutely correct. That being the case, as I see it, there is no point in attempting to discuss anything with you, your mind is made up irrespective of whatever fact is presented to support a view counter to your own dearly held beliefs.

Byeeeeeee
