Woodward Knew About Plame And Didn't Tell The Prosecutor or the WP

By Elaine Meinel Supkis

As Fitzgerald figured, once Libby was to face trial, all the toadies of Bush would have to start spilling the beans...For the defence. This would flush out the other conspiritors. Today, Woodward of "Watergate" fame finally tells the truth after lying for three years. Nixon is laughing in hell.

From Yahoo news:
The newspaper reported that Woodward told Special Counsel Patrick Fitzgerald, who is investigating the leak of Plame's identity, that the official talked to him about Plame in mid-June 2003. Woodward and editors at the Post refused to identify the official to reporters other than to say it was not Libby.
OK, Woodie, you CIA toad, spill the beans. Who gossiped to you, ILLEGALLY, about Valerie? You don't work for the CIA anymore....Wait. You probably do.

The Nixon stuff was an inside job.
Woodward's testimony in a two-hour deposition Monday would mean that another White House official told a reporter about Plame before Libby revealed her identity to Miller. A spokesman for White House adviser Karl Rove told the Post that Rove did not discuss Plame with Woodward.

William Jeffress Jr., one of Libby's lawyers, told the Post that Woodward's testimony raises questions about his client's indictment. "Will Mr. Fitzgerald now say he was wrong to say on TV that Scooter Libby was the first official to give this information to a reporter?" Jeffress said.
Arrest the first guy! Who was he? Cheney???? Heh! Arrest him.
On Wednesday, Woodward apologized for not telling his boss, Washington Post's executive editor Leonard Downie Jr., about his being among the journalists who were told about Plame's identity, even as the investigation morphed into a national scandal.

Woodward held back the information because he wanted to protect his sources and because he was worried about being subpoenaed in the inquiry, according to the newspaper's Web site.

"I hunkered down. I'm in the habit of keeping secrets," Woodward said. "I didn't want anything out there that was going to get me subpoenaed."
So, this clown, this conspiritorial criminal decided to not tell anyone about this matter because...He didn't want to be subpoenaed? How Mafioso of him! No criminal ever wants to be subpoenaed! This is why they have to be chased down and tackled!

And of course, this tool of the CIA has to keep secrets. This is how he manipulates all of us. He has done this all his life! Lying is second nature for him.

With Watergate, we lefties knew from day one what was going on and we watched Nixon get away with lying and we watched in horror as the mainstream media lied about the election and savaged a war hero, our candidate, and how the media and Nixon kept the damn War in Vietnam roaring along. Day after day, dead after dead. Just like today.

Only when these criminals screw up things in other ways, mostly when money ceases flowing to the media conspiritors, then they turn and begin to savage the President. Clinton was unusual because they were all rolling in dough and savaged him because he was so successful. This caused great fear.

Well, fear not! Bush is a roaring failure so now the media will unleash the dogs of the law upon him except this time, they are in the path of this jihad and so they are running for the exits. You can bet, the Washington Post won't fire this latest clown. At least we got rid of Judy Miller, Miss Bezerker Chick. Now it is time for CIA Woodie to chuck the woodchuck.

Goodbye, jerk.

Even after Richard Nixon's secret war in Cambodia became known, the president persisted in deception. "Publicly, we say one thing," he told aides. "Actually, we do another."

Newly declassified documents from the Nixon years shed light on the Vietnam War, the struggle with the Soviet Union for global influence and a president who tried not to let public and congressional opinion get in his way.

They also show an administration determined to win re-election in 1972, with Nixon aides seeking ways to use Jimmy Hoffa to tap into the labor movement. The former Teamsters president had been pardoned by Nixon in 1971.

The release Wednesday of some 50,000 pages by the National Archives means about half the national security files from the Nixon era now are public.

On May 31, 1970, a month after Nixon went on TV to defend the previously secret U.S. bombings and troop movements in Cambodia, asserting that he would not let his nation become "a pitiful, helpless giant," the president met his top military and national security aides at the Western White House in San Clemente, Calif.

Revelation of the operation had sparked protests and congressional action against what many lawmakers from both parties considered an illegal war. Nixon noted that Americans believed the Cambodian operation was "all but over," even as 14,000 troops were engaged across the border in a hunt for North Vietnamese operating there.

In a memo from the meeting marked "Eyes Only, Top Secret Sensitive," Nixon told his military men to continue doing what was necessary in Cambodia, but to say for public consumption that the United States was merely providing support to South Vietnamese forces when necessary to protect U.S. troops.

"That is what we will say publicly," he asserted. "But now, let's talk about what we will actually do."
Ah, the pitiful, helpless giant! I loved that image so much back then, I put it out in a leaflet showing the USA bent over with tiny Vietnamese jumping up and down on our back!

I love Nixon talking about lying. Sounds like he could be a fine pundit for the NYT or WP but he is too honest for Fox TV! On with the comedy! Talk about ghosts appearing when you call out their name! I better stop doing Nixon cartoons....
