    And yes, outing a CIA station chief in a hostile war-torn country is far more serious than casually mentioning to a Journalist that an alleged independent Administration critic is married to a DC CIA desk jockey.
    You just keep repeating the same chit without proof. Debate is the claim backed by proof.

    So far, I have not seen the CIA send the DOJ a criminal referral over this Press Office screw up. Let me know when that happens....mkay?

    Which was not the "end of the war"......by any stretch.

    ps:

    I can name a few WH staff fired, I cannot find ANY evidence of the current VP office carrying out a smear campaign against a CIA agent because her husband wrote about Admin lies leading us into a false, illegal invasion, wasting TRILLIONS in tax dollars, causing the deaths of hundreds of thousands of innocents while destroying their nation, the deaths of thousands of US service personnel, and blowing up the US debt.

    You want one Obama official, you have no concept of scale.

    The Status of Forces Agreement is what established the withdrawal timetable but like all liberals you will always give credit and never take responsibility. Isn't it interesting that you believe Plame sued Libby and Cheney and lost twice but still is guilty in your world? Not surprising as I expect that from low information voters.


    This will be my last post to you EVER and I believe you know why

    Forces agreements do not end a war, they set a schedule. The war ended when the last troops exited, in 2010. You are playing with semantics and not reality.

    I don't believe Plame is guilty....at all. The evidence is overwhelming that Wilson and Plame were damaged by Cheney and his office.

    I've read that one before.

    The reason there was a special prosecutor in the Valerie Plame case was that Scooter Libby lied to the FBI. He told them that he learned of her identity from Tim Russert, Russert being a journalist, Libby figured Russert would never testify, but he did.

    FITZGERALD: The focus of the interview was what it that he had known about Wilson's wife, Valerie Wilson, what he knew about Ms. Wilson, what he said to people, why he said it, and how he learned it.

    And to be frank, Mr. Libby gave the FBI a compelling story.

    What he told the FBI is that essentially he was at the end of a long chain of phone calls. He spoke to reporter Tim Russert, and during the conversation Mr. Russert told him that, "Hey, do you know that all the reporters know that Mr. Wilson's wife works at the CIA?"

    And he told the FBI that he learned that information as if it were new, and it struck him. So he took this information from Mr. Russert and later on he passed it on to other reporters, including reporter Matthew Cooper of Time magazine, reporter Judith Miller of the New York Times.

    .
    The last American combat troops left Vietnam in 1973. So how could we have lost the Vietnam War when it didn't end until 1975 ?

    PM me when the last American soldier leaves Germany so I'll know when WW ll ended.

    Re: White House mistakenly identifies CIA chief in Afghanistan

    The problem with the Obama administration is that it is comprised of people. People are idiots. It's time we just had a bunch of robots in charge. Everybody is stupid, and the color of your tie doesn't determine whether or not you are capable of making mistakes.

    For me, the only question is whether or not this was intentional. If it wasn't, then whoever failed to catch this mistake is a moron and should wear a dunce cap for a few weeks. If it was, then whoever was behind it should be behind bars. The Valerie Plame story was about the White House using their power to exact revenge against their enemies. If this was a mistake, it's hard to compare the stories. It's idiocy versus evil. Idiocy is not evil, it's just annoying.

    Yes, and we all know who leaked that info too and he was never prosecuted either... That's because to be in violation of the law, Armitage would have had to know her status was as a covert agent, which nobody in the Administration did, nor did half the people working at the CIA. She worked at a desk in Langley Virginia, not in some **** hole in Afghanistan where her identity being disclosed would have actually posed a danger..

    If that was true and they knew Plame's status was covert, then they knew something that even Bill Harlow, the CIA public information officer didn't know. Because he was Robert Novak's 3rd source for his story that confirmed Plame's identity. He told Novak she worked at a desk in Langley and had no idea her classification was covert.

    Unfortunately, that story of yours is missing what so many stories from back then were... EVIDENCE
