Interesting Point From Sam Sedar last night......
Ok, last night Sam Sedar raised an excellent point.

He said that whenever a covert CIA operative is outed, the CIA normally does a "damage assesstment report" that outlines the damaged caused to the organization, by the outing of said operative.

And he said the CIA has not yet released its damage assessment report on the outing of Valerie Plame. And that if there had not been any damage to outing her, they would have said it already.

So, where is the report? Hmmmmm...

3. So do you think...
That maybe the CIA already completed the Damage Assessment Report, unbeknowst to the public, handed over to Fitz?

That would be great.

Sam also made the point that the "front" energy group that Valerie was a part of (b/c of her covert status) had to close up shop after she was outed.

I also want to know if anyone was killed as a result of her being outed.

5. Yes...Sam Sedar did a great show last night...
But sometimes, I feel so conflicted about what to listen to.

For me here, Majority Report comes on at the same time as Radio Canada International programming (which I listen to on my shortwave radio).

I like to listen to RCI, because you get a different perspective of the news listening to international programming.

So I often find myself going back and forth between Majority Report on my AM station, and RCI on my shortwave.

6. i remeber hearing something about Brewster Jenings early on
and it is long past due for a Damage Assessment Report. I don't think they make those public though, do they? If anyone was killed/compromised, i'm sure they handed over a copy of their report when they asked for a prosecutor. just my 2 cents

8. If I remember correctly...
I thought Sam said last night, that the Damage Assessment Report about Brewster Jennings had been done & released? I thought he said they did it.

2. this, along with the lies to bring war, is the crux of EVERYthing for me
who knows what exactly Brewster Jennings was working on?

anyone conversant with discussions here know that it could be very very serious; very very damaging to our national security, to the point of terrorists with nukes, etc.

Treason is clearly not too strong a word, and it needs to be spoken far and wide

7. This Damage Assessment You Speak Of...
Does that still exist in the Porter Goss CIA, or was that done away with when 'Ole Porter took the reigns?

:shrug:

10. Rest of media are conspicuously ignoring potential damage of leak
I am sure that the damage is classified information most of which will never be known to us. I would have expected by now though to have a least a little speculation on potential damage to whatever projects she was working on from the TV media pundits but they have almost all been silent on this issue.
