As MSM outlets nationwide come to grips with the true results of the Plame affair a few are actually conceding that they were wrong:

WE’RE RELUCTANT to return to the subject of former CIA employee Valerie Plame because of our oft-stated belief that far too much attention and debate in Washington has been devoted to her story and that of her husband, former ambassador Joseph C. Wilson IV, over the past three years.

Of course they are just NOW saying that too much attention has been paid to these two conspirators, only after the true facts have begun to seep out, namely that the Wilson’s have no one to blame but themselves:

Nevertheless, it now appears that the person most responsible for the end of Ms. Plame’s CIA career is Mr. Wilson. Mr. Wilson chose to go public with an explosive charge, claiming — falsely, as it turned out — that he had debunked reports of Iraqi uranium-shopping in Niger and that his report had circulated to senior administration officials. He ought to have expected that both those officials and journalists such as Mr. Novak would ask why a retired ambassador would have been sent on such a mission and that the answer would point to his wife. He diverted responsibility from himself and his false charges by claiming that President Bush’s closest aides had engaged in an illegal conspiracy. It’s unfortunate that so many people took him seriously.

Thus the end to one of the most partisan witchhunts in years is coming to an end. A conclusion the left does not want to believe:

2. What kind of crack does this guy smoke? Friggin Hell…..the documents

Edited on Fri Sep-01-06 09:39 AM by Nickster
were FORGED! They were signed by people who were no longer in power! How has Amb. Wilson been proven wrong? HOW?

Hey? Who told Armitage about Valerie Plame? Think about asking that question? Remember Novak said there were TWO senior officials? TWO! Not just Armitage….that info came from somewhere didn’t it? ARGGGHHHH. Where the hell is your byline btw?

4. End of an Affair

You know, when I read this this AM, the odor that drifted from the paper was almost visible. To pat. To final. To much “nothing here, move on”. I think these guys are whoring big time to get this covered up quickly.

5. Personally, I Think BushCo Got a Two-fer

By outing Valerie Plame, they not only hung Joe Wilson out to dry (or tried to), they also dicredited and stopped cold the important work his wife was doing to subvert the rush to war in the Middle East. The muddling of the facts temporarily aided their PNAC agenda–but it adds just one more crime to the list for which they will all hang together and seperately. We still hang traitors, don’t we?

13. this is a truly evil hit piece

…and most of Washington will recognize it as such. Any pretense is gone. The Washington Post is the enemy of the American people now.

Here is one guy with the a story I figured would evolve from these dummies…Armitage was now a plant, making it look like he was against the war all the while he was for it….get it?

6. I don’t buy the idea of Armitage’s disinterest

He signed the PNAC letter to Clinton urging him to invade Iraq. He’s been in with Wolfowitz, Perle, Cheney and Rumsfeld since at least then so why do people say he had no axe to grind? I think the reluctance of his support for the war is overstated.

And believe me this is not the end of it. The nutroots are already talking about a campaign to DEMAND attribution of the editorial….and you just know whats going to happen after they find out who wrote it.

They have been unhinged for years, and this case has shown a huge spotlight on their dementia. Just like their hatred for Bush, they cannot be proved wrong. They would rather we lose in Iraq, we lose the war on terror, rather then admit Bush is right and doing a good job. Oh no, they would rather commit hara-kari then that.

When do you think the suddenly silent NYT’s will finally announce that they were wrong?

When hell freezes over would be my guest. They were the absolute worst in all of this. They breathlessly announced their outrage and disgust that Bushitler and team would do such a thing, all the while ignoring the growing evidence that the “reclusive” media whore was actually setting them up for the fall…unwittingly of course. Don’t think he is bright enough to have seen how this would play out. But we were….

….and I’m laughing it up right about now.
