Despite false claim, his star rises
Former Bush aide eyed for State job

By Bryan Bender, Globe Staff, 1/11/2005

WASHINGTON -- The man who insisted that President Bush make the claim that Saddam Hussein was seeking uranium for nuclear weapons in Africa is poised to assume a top State Department job that would make him the lead US arms negotiator with Iran and North Korea, according to administration officials.

1. They need to change the opener
It's not "despite false claim, his star rises"
It's "because of false claim, his star rises"

He contributed to their successful manipulation and that deserves to be rewarded according to these criminals.

2. I figure him for a Plame leaker (circumstantial hunch).
They'll stay thick as flies, as long as they can, with him clutching Condi's skirt; but I figure his days on Uncle Sugar's payroll are numbered.

:evilgrin:

3. Speaking of Plame leaker...
WTF ever happened to that investigation? Did I nod off and miss the indictments and frog-marching?

Just wondering.

4. Appeals are grinding.
Once they're run, it's showtime.

5. Okay, just reality checking, here--
Four guys were fired from CBS for possibly fake memos whose content wasn't really denied while this guy is promoted for a definitely fake letter whose content is denied?

Just checking.

6. Well, that pretty much seems to be the pattern at the Bush WH...
if you're dishonest or incompetent (or, ideally, BOTH), you get rewarded.
