Olbermann talking about the indictments and Fineman agrees
Says the Steve Clemons article is most probably correct. This is the first I've heard it mentioned on the cable news. http://www.thewashingtonnote.com/archives/001031.html

1. MSNBC is down in our part of the globe
something about the weather and the digital set up. I'm pissed as CNN is going on and on about Wilma.

3. It's over now, but Fineman is from Newsweek
and they both think the Clemons article is accurate. We can only hope. Well they are still talking the leak. And the bushco's aren't coming out smelling like roses.

5. It went off at my house, too
Our cable company only added MSNBC about a month ago and I was beginning to depend on it, especially Olberman. Especially today!

2. And Keith's take on how this all came about sounds dead-on
Libby/Rove may not have known Plame was NOC when they leaked her name (thus, can't have "knowingly leaked") but then they were afraid they'd broken a law and tried to cover up (hence, they get nailed on perjury) ... Just like with Watergate, it's the cover-up that's gonna get 'em.

6. There's only one thing wrong with that assessment...
seems I read that anyone accessing top secret information like about Plame has to sign for it and give the reason they need it.

7. and
Edited on Tue Oct-25-05 08:49 PM by spooky3
why would they think anyone would care about V. Wilson's occupation unless they were blowing her cover? I can't imagine that something like "Wilson's wife is a doctor" or "Wilson's wife is a teacher" would have made for riveting copy. As soon as they learned she was in the CIA, they are smart enough to know they had better be damn sure that spreading info about her in the press was not illegal, if their intentions were good.

They knew exactly what they were doing.

9. I think they did it to punish Wilson
If a Democrat were elected president, in 04 or any time in the future, Wilson would have been a lock for an important ambassadorship. Once his wife was outed, all his chances for future office, or any diplomatic assignment overseas, were over. Forever.

It was a matter of pure vindicativeness. And a warning to others who might dare to expose what they were up to.

10. Yes. It wasn't about smearing Wilson..
It was about shutting down Brewster Jennings and the work they were doing on WMD proliferation. And Cheney was in it up to his neck.

I think this will eventually come out.
