    Cheney wanted to damage Wilson, he did so by having Scooter and Armitage destroy Plame's career.
    Really? So, why was Armitage NEVER questioned during the investigation?

    that's nice. meanwhile, Afghanistan has been a precipitating event in the decline of many empires. if our presidents would pick up a ****ing history book, they would know that.

    it's time to get everyone out of there.

    Straw man, the white house really screwed up and they need to "fix" the person(s) who did this. The mostly unrelated commentary in this thread is the real problem of this forum, completely unhinged.

    The concern is that the US will do what it always does and leave with the job half done.


    But, please indicate anything more than speculation that Obama was even trying for a meeting, it looks like pure self promotion from here.



    If Canada wants to keep its troops in Afghanistan from now until the end of time no one in the USA will insist that they bring them home.

    If you Canucks want to stay there forever, get after it.

    Have a nice day.

    Oh, so you admit she was no longer working under a covert status? Thanks, Pete!

    Strawman? No - fact.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    You see, it all depends on who's making the comparison.

    The difference to me of course are the results and results matter except to a liberal. This is the most incompetent Administration in history and that is saying something. There isn't one economic result that Obama has that is better than Bush and his foreign policy accomplishments are a disaster. The only thing he has going for him in the eyes of liberals is that he is transforming America into a European socialist economy and destroying our military.

    More straw men, I don't support Obama in everything he does. American brought up Valerie Plame playing the victim card on the first page before anyone even said anything. You guys do this in every thread, you lay down every card before anyone even responds and then spend pages throwing a fit about every unfair meme you can muster. It's ludicrous.

    It's a good thing FDR didn't "pickup a history book" in 1941.
