Fitzmas Eve


It's pretty clear indictments have been handed down or will be finalized friday and then made public. The guessing is who and how many. Blog reports about the special prosecutor signing a lease for more office space doesn't bode well for the targets of his investigation. Whoever gets indicted it comes back to the same thing - these guys never learn.

The cover-up is always worse than the underlying "crime" which according to all the talking head "experts" on the right there was no crime. They say there was no violation of the 1982 law regarding disclosure of covert agents' identities. Well if that's the case then why did anyone lie before the grand jury? If there was no crime then go in there and say, "yeah, I did it. Who cares?" These guys always think they are the smartest in the room and it always gets them in trouble.

The real crime is that they knew what they were doing in one respect. They knew that lying and delaying this investigation until after the 2004 elections removed any chance for losing votes. That's all they are interested in. Win the next election. Period.

The other crime is that even if you argue this was a policy difference that should be resolved at the ballot box the policy was based upon fraudulent intelligence which was sold propaganda style to Congress and the nation. There was no way to honestly debate the policy since the policy was built on a classified mirage. Only when Joe Wilson went public with a glimpse at the mirage did the vipers in the White House and perhaps elsewhere go into revenge mode and outed his CIA undercover wife. Now they are reaping what they sowed. Had the simply ignored Wilson no special prosecutor would be handing down indictments and peeling back the onion layers on the mirage that sent this nation to war. They never learn.

Although I am not religious, Proverbs has some pretty cool wisdom that is quite relevant to the Pillsbury Rove Boy,

Proverbs 16:18
Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.

Proverbs 11:2

Pride comes, then shame comes; but with the lowly is wisdom.

Proverbs 21:4

A high look, a proud heart, and the plowing of the wicked, is sin.

Good post...

You point out the arrogance of this administration: their complete confidence in their decision even tho they don't seek out ANY dissenting opinion.

It's exactly that type of governance that we should fear... and it's exactly what got us into this mess in Iraq.
