Uh-Oh! Plame Outed by CIA?

NYTimes: Tenet Outs Plame?

My what a twist of fate! Could it be that Rove didn't out Plame at all? What's happening? The liberals "get Bush by whatever means you can drudge up" plan seems to be backfiring!

Gee, I wonder if Al Franken will support the execution of George Tenet?

Don't blow the horns too soon.

As vice president, Cheney has clearance to receive classified information. So Tenet wasn't "outing" anyone if he shared classified information with Cheney.

If Cheney shared it with anyone who was not cleared to receive it, then he violated the law.

I don't believe Cheney violated any law, but I believe he is a liar, and a dangerous man.

Well it's important that you are true to your convictions. I can say that your strength lies in your constancy.

I think I was unclear as to why I posted this as such. It seems the tenor has changed at the NYTimes regarding the Plame pseudo-scandal.

I will await further developments before I weigh in on this one.

UL,

I guess I wouldn't celebrate yet if I were you. Cheney is looking like a big liar and that is worse in my opinion than Rove leaking a name of a non-active CIA agent. After all, for Buddha's sake, the man is the Vice President of the United States. Shouldn't there be some standards.

You know as well as I do that the majority of people in this country already don't trust our elected officials--this definately won't help matters out.

Moreso, regardless of whether an indictment is brought, this damages the credibity of the Bush Administration even further. That is something even worse for our country.

I know this is all very charged with partisanship, but I guess what I am trying to say is that neither side should be celebrating any of this. It makes all of us, as Americans, look like a bunch of bozos.

Anyways, here is an article that sheads some light on Cheney's activity: http://www.freep.com/news/nw/leak26e_20051026.htm

Yeah I gotta go with isabella on this one. And besides, as far as I know Bush isn't the one being investigated here. But cool site. I will blogroll it.

Amadeus: Yes, indictments lower the credibility of any administration. And yes, it is a partisan atmosphere, and yes, people don't trust their elected officials. Does this include Democrat officials too? Let's be fair, politics is a dirty business. It's a quest for power among parties, so we must always take the information talking points with about 32 pounds of salt. The liberals complain about Bush doing this or not doing that. It's very typical. If Bush pulls a Nixon, which I think he has been doing, the conservatives spank him and the liberals despise him even more. The answer to quieting the howling liberals is for a liberal to become president. The answer to make a liberal completely quiet and content is for us to withdraw from Iraq, make the Islamic terrorists love us, we give concessions to them so they promise not to attack us, make sure no Republicans ever get power again, blah, blah, blah, ad infinitum, ad nauseum.

Frankly, I prefer having conservatism reign supreme and live with the whining and blaming of the left. I can pretty much tune it out. It's like tuning out the crying of an infant at nap time. Without a logical system of thinking, they need to just get it out of their system. They'll be fine in due course.
