    You will see no argument from me if someone wants to go charge Richard Armitage.

    Incidentally, Valerie Plane wasn't a CIA Agent. Sort of an important difference. She was an analyst, not a case-officer.

    So why wasn't Armitage charged?

    This media whore of a man, used his new found fame to latch on to liberal outlets like HuffPo, and MSNBC as some kind of "expert", and these liberal outlets loved every minute of it....Personally I think 30 months is way too light, life would have been closer to appropriate.
    You're not quite yet aware of it soldier, but in fact, the domestic enemies to the Constitution are FAR MORE virulent than any domestic enemy. Further, theirs is much more successful, perhaps nearly complete at this point.

    Anybody that supports the government war against whistleblowers is suspect, in my book.

    Well, I've been around long enough to know the difference between a true "whistleblower" and someone using that to cover their own law breaking....Kiriakou is the latter.

    I disagree. Perhaps you have Kiriakou confused with Dubya? Or Dick?

    Can you offer some signs that allow you to distinguish so easily between a whistleblower and someone using that to cover their own law breaking?

    For me, any person who works for the government who uses his knowledge or position to expose the crimes or misfeasance of the government is a whistleblower.

    Hmmm....That's a good question....Off the top I'd have to say that taking paid positions on news outlets as their latest "expert" dog and pony show, and publishing a book for profit on this supposed "whistleblowing" would be a start.

    You couldn't possibly. All liberals are exactly the same, and if one defended him, then not only did all defend him, but all support leaking classified material.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    I think you need to show where anyone said that. K? Thanks.

    What if a person claiming to be a whistleblower had no success going through normal channels and the chain of command? What if the system rebuffed him because his story threatened so much 'on the inside?' And then some TV channel interviewed him? Does that make him suspect, or only that he received financial compensation for his interview make him the bad guy?
