Fitzgerald: Plame Was Covert

Via the NYT's:

Patrick Fitzgerald, the special prosecutor, could have easily cleared up the confusion during his more than two years of prosecuting the case, but he waited until now.

Ms. Wilson “was a covert employee,” Mr. Fitzgerald wrote, according to Newsweek. “The CIA was taking affirmative measures to conceal her intelligence relationship to the United States.” More detail:

While assigned to CPD, Ms. Wilson engaged in temporary duty (TDY) travel overseas on official business. She traveled at least seven times to more than ten countries. When traveling overseas, Ms. Wilson always traveled under a cover identity — sometimes in true name and sometimes in alias — but always using cover — whether official or non-official cover (NOC) — with no ostensible relationship to the CIA.

Maybe her identity really was ultra-super-secret.

Then again the information is only as good as the source, but Fitzgerald probably wouldn't put his law license at risk by lying in court. Looks like the right was wrong. This is troubling indeed.

Sicko2: Sicko Redux

Because sometimes a comment is worthy of a post unto itself:

R. Bobak said...
Pudgy propagandist Michael Moore is dead wrong to paint Canada's sicko socialist healthcare system (where it is illegal for a private citizen to pay for a doctor's services, or to buy private medical insurance) as a panacea for the supposed ills of the American system. We in Canada don't need Moore's boorish and infantile stereotypes. If Moore gets his way, he'd deprive tens of thousands of Canadians from obtaing healthcare in the States- in Buffalo, Cleveland, Detroit, Philly- where they are forced to go because our Ontario state-run government health monopoly cannot provide timely treatment. Look to Massachusetts, and look to Quebec -jurisdictions where a private-parallel health system is developing, albeit from different extremes. Do not be conned by those who babble of "universal healthcare" - in Canada, that socialist scheme morphed,in less than 40 years, into a no-patient-choice, waiting-list rationed, state monopoly. In Ontario, healthcare spending alone consumes something like 45% of the entire provincial budget, yet shortages are a constant fact. Quebec's Supreme Court noted,in its 2005 Chaoulli decision, that access to a healthcare waiting list is NOT the same thing as access to healthcare itself. It's unbelievable that a point as clear as this had to go to the provinces' top court, against the howls of protest from pro-medicare activists, who for years successfully parlayed the charade that getting a bill of goods, was the same thing as getting the actual goods. The Canada/U.S. healthcare relationship is a strangely symbiotic one - we both have strengths and weaknesses in healthcare delivery. For Moore to promote an unsustainable monopoly system like ours,where Canadians die on government waiting lists for rationed care, is simply ignorant.

Thanks for the insight, learned friend from the North. I know I for one have never considered how a move towards universal healthcare in America could hurt not only Americans, but Canadians as well. I wish more Canadians would speak up on this issue, many Americans actually believe the fantasy of free, "top-notch" healthcare. They just don't understand that you get what you pay for.

Soldiers Have Difficulty Getting Supplies

AP: Marines fail to get gear to troops

The system for delivering badly needed gear to Marines in Iraq has failed to meet many urgent requests for equipment from troops in the field, according to an internal document obtained by The Associated Press.

No mention whether the Democrat's failure to fund the troops led to urgent requests being denied.

The Glorious Back of John Edwards's Head

Behold! Bask in the magnificence:

look at those beautiful locks... so pretty

My Jaw Just Hit The Floor

Oh how I love the Internet Age!

Checkout John Edwards speaking for the Democrats back in October of 2001 about how the Democrats will stand united with the President throughout this War on Terror:

Fastforeward a few years, with the ash and smoke of 9/11 no longer fresh in our hearts and minds, and the Democrats having rallied around the anti-war, anti-troop movement, and where does John Edwards stand today?

Regrets his vote?

A bumper sticker?

Republican Debate

Here are my thoughts on the Republican Debate last night. I only watched half of the debate (but I've read the full transcript).

I thought McCain did well. He answered his questions mostly right, but in doing so he also kicked sand in the face of the sitting President - commenting on the "mishandling" of the war. I actually think I could trust McCain to run this country, but I don't like him and I won't vote for him in the primaries.

I think Romney did well also. He had some easy questions to answer and he dropped the ball a few times, but he looks and sounds good. I think he would make a decent candidate, but he lacks the name recognition of McCain and Giuliani.

I think Giuliani did well. The net is abuzz over his smack down of Ron Paul, not to be confused with Rupaul. Most people think this Giuliani stole the show when he pointed out what a moonbat Ron Paul is. You can see the clip here.

I have to disagree with that sentiment. I think the line of the night came from Huckabee, who said, "[We have had a] Congress that's spent money like [John] Edwards at a beauty shop." Now THAT is funny. If this were last comic standing, I think Huckabee would have a better chance.

Ron Paul definitely had the worst showing. I don't know how that guy is allowed to put an (R) next to his name. He is the Kucinich of the Republican party in that he is a crazy, moonbat who has no business running for President.

My pick is still Giuliani. Second is probably Romney. After that it is a toss up. Strange that I identify myself as a conservative and my top two picks are not.

Obama: Woops

Obama overstates Kansas tornado deaths

RICHMOND, Va. - Barack Obama, caught up in the fervor of a campaign speech Tuesday, drastically overstated the Kansas tornadoes death toll, saying 10,000 had died. The death toll was 12.

"In case you missed it, this week, there was a tragedy in Kansas. Ten thousand people died — an entire town destroyed," the Democratic presidential candidate said in a speech to 500 people packed into a sweltering Richmond art studio for a fundraiser.
Read More.

That's a pretty big whoops.

10,000 Americans would be...
More than 5 times the death toll of Hurricane Katrina
Well more than 3 times the death toll of 9/11
Just barely less than 3 times the number of US soldiers who have died in this Iraq War

But hey, Obama only missed the right count by 9,988.

Debutantes of Defeat

Debutantes of Defeat
by Russ Vaughn

In 2003 they came to the Ball,
For some merry martial dancing;
Girlishly giggling in the Capitol hall,
Finding chords of war music entrancing.
Filled with excitement, throwing care to the wind,
DebiDems wanted Bush to be tough,
So the ladies signed on for a Ball with no end,
Without thinking it just might get rough.

But the dance card of war began to reveal,
That some people really were dying.
What? Death and violence are part of the deal?
That dumb cowboy must have been lying.
Lifting their hems, they ran for the doors,
Their hypocrisy blatantly stunning;
Shrieking defeat, they fled the dance floors,
Belles with no Balls, flat-out running.

Once hypocrite Hillary swirled the war floor,
Out-jingoing flat-footed Kerry;
Now Hil is shrilling she knew not the score,
Like whiney-voiced, tap-dancing Harry.
They went to the ball to advance their schemes,
They had planned, should the Martial Ball sour;
Lose the war, destroy Bush, fulfill their dreams,
They’d become the dance masters of power.

Hillary’s hip-hopping, Reid’s tapping like mad, club-footed Kerry’s still schlubbing,
And Pelosi in Damascus cornered Bashar for some old-fashioned, hot belly-rubbing.
