The Buzz That Won't Go Away

So former press secretary Scotty Mac insinuates in his new book that our mighty Prez authorized the leak of the identity of a covert or secret agent, Valerie Plame, who worked undercover as an energy consultant while clandestinely assessing Iran's nuclear program. The outing of Valerie Plame is old news. The VP's chief of staff, Scooter Libby, was found guilty of criminal perjury and obstruction of justice because he lied to the FBI about about his involvement in the outing. Its one thing to get a bunch of guys you would have liked to have been in your fraternity and play war king in a colonial mansion in the center of Washington, DC, but you know finking on our secret agents, that's kind of low down and dirty. Could get someone killed needlessly who had their life on the line for the Country at the whim of the political vanity of an elected official with a penchant for planting stories in the press.

You know the sad thing is that VP and Prez just are so impressed with who they are they won't come clean with the People on what went down. Congress has had to subpoena records of what they told investigators but looks like the Prez is saying "Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, secret war, people get killed, I have to protect Mericans," or something pretty close to that. And its really sad when a bunch of Senators release a report sayin the Prez and VP were just making things up out of thin air, no basis in any known credible intelligence, to take us into war with Iraq. So now the Prez and VP say that they think they know something about Iran and war maybe necessary, but you know they already screwed our sources. And don't for a minute believe that all this war stuff is not about someone's buddy makin some money. Is this really how we want to do these things? I am just sayin. At least they could have the dignity to tell Congress and the Public what really went down including what actions they took they thought were necessary because of intelligence passed on by Saudi Arabian agents. You know the Prez had no problem misleading Congress with a sentence about what British agents were supposed to have known.
