Cheney Could Not Recall Key Events About His Role in CIA Leak

By GottaLaff

My friend Jason Leopold wrote up a piece on Dickless McHeartstent's 2004 interview with the special prosecutor in the Valerie Plame case. As usual, Jason's reporting is well worth a read:

A month before Valerie Plame Wilson's covert status as a CIA operative was revealed, Vice President Dick Cheney told his then-chief of staff, I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, and his press secretary, Cathie Martin, that Plame Wilson worked at the spy agency.

But according to a 28-page summary of Cheney’s May 8, 2004 interview with the special prosecutor probing the leak, Cheney did not recall having that conversation.

"Cheney has no recollection of Cathie Martin entering his office at some point while Scooter Libby was present and advising both of them that [Plame Wilson] was employed by the CIA," states the interview summary, released late Friday by the FBI after a lengthy court battle between the Bush and Obama administrations and the government watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW). [...]

Cheney described the CIA's decision to dispatch Ambassador Wilson to Niger as "amateur-hour" and he disparaged the CIA's handling of Iraq intelligence, which Cheney, Libby and others in the Office of the Vice President pressured agency analysts to manipulate in an attempt to portray Iraq as posing an immediate threat.

Cheney said he could not recall playing any role in the campaign to attack Wilson. But former White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan wrote in his memoir, What Happened: Inside The Bush White House and Washington’s Culture of Deception, that the White House’s behind-the-scenes campaign to discredit Wilson heated up in June 2003. “The vice president and Libby were quietly stepping up their efforts to counter the allegations of the anonymous envoy to Niger...," McClellan wrote. [...]

In fact, Cheney stated that he did not recall more than two-dozen key events he was involved in [...]

That's just a nibble. Go devour the whole piece here.

And after you do, you won't have an appetite for days.

Joe Lieberman feels relevant

As many have already pointed out, all that really matters to Traitor Joe is Traitor Joe and Traitor Joe's ego:

But Lieberman laughed off the critics' attempts to "psychoanalyze" him.

"I feel relevant,'' Lieberman said in a conference call with a handful of Connecticut reporters this afternoon.

How sensitive of him to laugh off the millions who have died, and continue to die, because Big Insurance yanks their lives out from under them.

And I'm so happy for T.J. and his new found relevance. After all, this is all about him.

What about the more than 60 percent of state residents that back a government-run insurance option, according to a Quinnipiac University poll last month?

Some of those respondents are confused about what such a plan entails, Lieberman said.

No, actually, they're not confused at all. They know they've been screwed over by people like you and your donors for decades. You must be confusing the respondents for yourself.

And he added, "you can't make a decision like this based on polling,'' he said. Ultimately, he he said he has to do "what I think is right and hope in the end the people of Connecticut will respect me for that.''

Um, Traitor? You used the wrong R word. Nobody Respects you, but hopefully, the people of Connecticut will Retire you.

GOP VIDEO: Dems running to replace Kennedy are scary

By GottaLaff

This video is brimming over with bad:

The video takes aim at the four Democratic candidates for [Ted Kennedy's] seat, making them out to be characters in a horror film and giving them nicknames like "Cap and Trade Capuano" and "Call My Sister Overseas Coakley.

A high school audio visual techie could do better.
