The real story of the Scooter Libby trial is Judicial malfeasence. Valerie Plame is not a covert operative and should have immediately been terminated. The Federal Government has rules and regulations about nepotism. Moreover, we swear an oath to the United States government. The first error by the judge was not allowing the jury to consider if Plame was a covert employee, she wasn't.
Joe Wilson was a hardened Democratic hack and was sent by his wife to Niger in clear violation of the laws of nepotism. Moreover, sending someone who was a political hack to do an investigation with predetermined conclusions was disingenuous. The real truth is Plame and the other managers who facilitated Wilson should have been reprimanded.
The so called furor of the famous 16 word sentence has been backed by Brittish intelligence. Repeated findings in two countries have concluded Joe Wilson lied. Moreover Wilson has maintained that it was Dick Cheeney who sent him to Niger and his wife had nothing to do with it.
Joe Wilson dreamed a Gomer Kerry administration would reward his duplicity with an under Secretary of State position. A normal politician would be wary of treason and duplicity, but this is Gomer Kerry who is well versed in both treason and duplicity.
If there were genuine justice Gomer Kerry would be on the stand right now. Gomer Kerry should explain what contact he had with Wilson and what was promised. Kerry is well versed in perjury as he has lied in the floor of the senate about being sent into Cambodia to kill Col Kurtz while Doors music played. Oh that was Gomer Kerry's review of Apocalypse Now in the Boston Globe. He seems to think that movie is autobiographical. Kerry repeated this claim on the floor of Congress in an effort to save the Sandinazis who were slaughtering Native Americans.
Kerry also had met with NVA officials in Paris while a member of the US Naval Reserve. This offense should have earned him time in a military prison. Kerry also founded a group with a fake Vietnam Veteran who never set foot in Vietnam, he loaded
planes and never piloted them, lied about his rank that was never close to Captain,
lied about injuries that were said to be combat related but in fact were the result of a basketball game in Hoboken. This should come a zero surprise but Al Hubbard was an actual Communist. Kerry also led the discredited Winter Soldier hearing in Detroit that was famous for fake veterans, witnesses prepared by the NOI, people stealing the identity of actual soldiers and testifying in their name.
The questions should not be directed at Scooter Libby or Cheeney. The person who should be on the stand is Joe Wilson. In fact the defense was not allowed to present
Wilson's record of lies or Plame's misconduct. Libby's should now claim he is lying about sex and try the Clinton defense.
This episode also explains why far left types should never be allowed to work in government in any capacity. They do not take their oaths of office seriously and with rare exception are disruptive.
