Cheney Role Risks Political Fallout

Regarding the Wall Street Journal: Sorry I don't read rags. I recommend the Brooklyn Daily Eagle.

Wall Street article has a point about what Cheney has the power to do. But as Mrs. Wilson was still active in her role to declassify her identity would risk people she worked with who didn't know her job. Both overseas and here in the US. Now the question should be can a President or vice President us their power to break the law and put other CIA operatives in danger. Look what other CIA agents are thinking or FBI agents like Michael Mason working undercover. If our President/Vice President can use the power at their personnal will who would want a job that leaking their name could have them killed. Remember after these guys leaked her name they took away her security in hopes that some country would kidnap her as she would have no recourse. This is a bad play in the game of chess. They will lose.

Mick Rooney!!!! Or how about Tricky Dick?

This Cheney guy needs to be charged with conspiracy to blow someone's cover, but not until the end....

What a tangle web we weave....We shall see how Cheney gets out of this. Because of this lastest event, it surely give smomentum to the war critics. GOP has a lot to worry about it. On a side note, I do like Wall Street Journal. But, I particularly read more of the business and finance and the stock. There is great information in there. I do less reading on the politics and policy becasue it gives limited information unlike Raw Story. And WSJ finally has a law blog. So, I get a lot of information of current lawsuits and indictments on that site.

It still isn't very clear to me that Cheney does in fact SHARE in the power to 'on the fly' declassify information.

As for Bush, I believe it may come down to Bush sticking his neck out to cover Cheney's huge pitarskie.

As for 'declassify information' this is INTENDED to cover outing a covert agent?

Hmmmmm, I'm not so sure. I'd like to see that one in writing.

On Dennis Ross and Libby's Defense Fund:

"Why should it be surprising that one of the titans of America's Middle East Peace Business cartel would find himself beholden to Dick Cheney's chief political and national security architect?

There's just no other way around it. This looks damn slimey, with all due respect to Dennis Ross.

Libby is the first indicted White House official in over a century -- and is involved in a crime that the President of the United States himself was an outrageous violation of our national security. The involvement on the Libby Legal Defense Fund of Ross -- no matter how much he makes the case that he is a 25-year long friend of Libby -- looks like he is there to reinforce the Cheney/Libby connection to Israel -- and that those concerned about Israel should bail out Libby."

Good news from the MSM:

"WASHINGTON - Special Counsel Patrick Fitzgerald should investigate Vice President
Dick Cheney and others in the
CIA leak probe if they authorized an aide to give secret information to reporters, Democratic and Republican senators said Sunday."
