Ok, you heard about Plamegate, or Spygate, or Rovegate, right? Whatever you call it, some very high placed Republicans leaked the name of a top secret government agent to get revenge on her husband. They wanted to get revenge on her husband because he said (and he was totally right) that the Niger Yellow Cake story was bullshit. He said Iraq was not seeking Uranium to make nuclear weapons. He should know, he was the American something or other to Niger for some time. Problem was this, the president had his speech ready for America saying ‘we have proof Iraq is in Niger scoring the kind Yellow Cake’. Problem is, that was a 100% lie and the President knew it.
So, when dude told the President and the press “this is totally untrue”, they said “oh yeah, well your wife is a spy”. This much is true, and for the most part people are being finally held accountable. This will go all the way up to Cheney and Rove though. All of the major players in this treasonous scandal have been brought to light and dealt with in some form. All except for Robert Novak, the most odious of all these traitors.
See, what Novak did was publish all this dirt… and more. See, all of this was just high powered politicos playing their games. That all ended the minute Novak wrote a column about the whole thing, naming Valerie Plame as a deep cover agent. It gets worse. Novak also mentioned her cover business. See, like a movie, these deep cover top secret agents have cover stories and cover identities. One of the common covers they used was a fake consulting firm. She was a NOC. That is super deep cover. That is real life Tom Cruise stuff.
For reasons known only to the devil Novak himself… he even published the name of the front company. What this did was endanger all of the other deep cover operatives still active who were still using that cover. That is treason, and for treason he should be hung. Here is what pisses me off the most about all of this. Novak has never had to testify, lose his job, or even apologize. Understand this: Robert Novak willingly outed a deep cover top secret CIA agent for political spite, and endangered countless others by publishing their covers. Robert Novak is an enemy of the state, and yet somehow still writes his column and shows up on TV everyday.
Do you understand how big this is? This is as big as Watergate. We did recon to see if Hussein was building nukes. We got definitive info that he wasn’t. The war machine was already gearing up, though. So, there was no stopping it. As we are gearing up to go to war in Iraq (to protect us from their nukes, which he now know they didn’t have) ambassador Joseph Wilson goes public. With great balls of steel he tells the public that Iraq isn’t building nukes and he can prove it. Now, the govt has egg on their face. So, they quickly have to discredit Joseph Wilson. How did they do that? They fed the story to Novak that Wilson’s wife was a spy, so you can’t trust him. It was true. She was a spy… FOR US.
Know what else is nuts? Guess who sent Wilson to Niger to investigate the yellow cake uranium story? Dick Cheney himself. The same guy who orchestrates the cover up.
With Novak being the errand boy for the Bushies, Wilson’s wife (Valerie Plame) is now outed as a spy. Her life is in danger, as she was deep undercover. THEN… Novak publishes the name of her cover identity. Her cover story was she was a lawyer for Whitney and Nonesuch (made up name, so you don’t end up dead for reading this). Well, Whitney and Nonesuch was the cover firm for a bunch of our spies. So, this outed all of them, too. Novak never apologized, or even acknowledged doing anything wrong. This makes him the worst man in America. It makes him a terrorist and a traitor. That can not be emphasized or stated enough.
I have been working on this piece in my head for years, and on paper for a few days now. I get so angry I have to step away. As I was finishing some of my final ramblings, this story pops up as the headline on CNN. Read this:
— A former Sinn Fein official recently exposed as a British spy was found fatally shot Tuesday after apparently being tortured
Oh yes, the consequences are VERY real for outed spies. Mr Novak, you may be the worst human on the planet right now. Well, except for Tom Cruise and that Hussein guy.
