This particular intelligence leak now connected to President Smirky by Libby, Cheney’s Number One pack mule, was not routine -- not comparable to typical intelligence leaks from previous administrations -- although that’s what the administration will tell us. And Mr. and Mrs. Livingroom, fed the usual shockingly deficient crap by the shockingly deficient big media, will probably give him a pass on this one.
This was a leak of tainted intelligence in order to contradict the truth told by whistle-blowing Wilson, who confirmed that Smirky personally peddled disproved information to the public to justify his war. It wasn’t a leak that could have helped the country in any way. It was a leak to screw a truth-teller and assist Smirky in screwing the country with his cockamamie war in Iraq.
The media will have a hard time getting these nuances across to the public, particularly because the biggest of the big media can be relied upon to not even try. Diligent journalists have gradually been replaced by these shmucks over the last couple generations as corporations bought out newspapers and administered drug tests to new employees.
Meanwhile, notice that Condoleeza doesn’t scowl as much at everybody now -- classic bully behavior when victims finally fight back. She’s also tried out a new White House fallback position to be opened in an emergency -- when calling questioners traitors stops working altogether. We can’t judge the wisdom of the Iraq invasion for generations, she tells us. Hmm. I don’t recall any Republicans applying that rule to Clinton's blowjobs.
