When Right Wingers Attack: Did Mary McCarthy Send Joe Wilson To Niger?
what a bunch of assholes.

I was trolling over on Michelle Malkin's blog. I wanted to see if she was still whining about having to move and getting her phone disconnected :evilgrin:

Then I came across this. These guys have NOTHING over Fred, Wilma, Scooby Doo and Shaggy:


Plame suggested his name; but a higher-up at the CIA actually sent him.

Who?

Now, McCarthy has links to general-turned-Rumsfeld-resignation-demander Anthony Zinni. And Sandy Berger. And, of course, Richard Clarke.

Would you believe she was also on the NSC during the same period, and with the same portfolio (Africa), as... JOE F'N' WILSON?

It doesn't take a conspiracy theorist to see the vague outlines of a conspiracy here. We have a lot of like-minded people with the motive, means, and opportunity to subvert the democratically-elected foreign-policy official of this country when he dares to disrespect their superior enlightened liberal ideas.

FloppingAces says the name "Jay Rockefeller" seems to be popping up a lot, too. Wishful thinking, but hey, let's dare to dream.

Mary McCarthy was, at least at one time, the National Intelligence Offier for Warning. "Warning" is a branch of intelligence charged with, well, warning the President of potential threats-- collecting bits of data on a threat from all the different intelligence agencies and evaluating the level of the threat and presenting that information to the President.

Iraq was considered a threat in the early 2000's, of course.

It would seem that Mary McCarthy would have been one of the top CIA decision-makers as to what sort of person might be sent over to, say, Africa to investigate a particular threat-- the threat that Iraq was seeking uranium from Niger.

Now, that's how it seems to me. I don't know the NIO/W's exact responsibilities. But her testimony before the 9/11 commission describes the position as being about evaluating and analyzing threats specifically for consumption by the decision-making client (the President).

So: it seems likely she would be involved in investigating the threat of Iraq's nuclear program.


Did this lawbreaker and Kerry partisan ask Valerie Plame to ask Joe Wilson if he'd like to go on a secret public mission to Niger and come back with a report whitewashing any Iraq-Niger-uranium connection?

She would have known Joe Wilson. She knew his political leanings and that they agreed with her own. She would have been one of the people in the loop-- at the top of the loop, really -- for assessing the Iraq-Niger-uranium threat.

So-- was it Mary McCarthy who sent Wilson to Niger?

I'm sure the MSM will be right on top of that one.

1. She didn't work in the Counterproliferation Division or in the Operations
Directorate, which is where Wilson's trip was authorized.

2. These people just won't admit that the Niger papers were forged...
They will tarnish anyones reputation that doesn't march lock step with the gestapo.....

What is their explanation of the illegal prisons....(Oh wait I can answer that they think torture is okay...even if the suspects are completely innocent)Mary had a conscience and knew that it was wrong..

I so despise these people.....
