More Lies

Litbrit at Shakespeare’s Sister in the post, And The Point Of Having A White House Security Director Would Be…?, notes that there is no record of any investigation of the leak of Valerie Plame’s name.

I guess they might have put a post-it note on the break room fridge asking anyone who outed a CIA agent to call Karl, which would have been the basis of Scotty’s denial that anyone in the White House was involved.

I think it’s long past the time at which journalists need to ask themselves: does access have any value if all you get are lies? Do journalists understand that they are not protecting sources, they are shielding criminals from prosecution? [It is illegal for the government to conduct a misinformation campaign in the United States.]

I guess they really have to go back and subpoena the person he reports to in the Office of WH security…or perhaps that is the person that higher-up reports to in the Office of WH security…or maybe it’s the next higher-up that person reports to in the Office of WH security…to get answers from WHO-Ever-The-F**k is responsible for anything over at that place!

Everyone accepts responsibility, but no one will accept the blame.

As I remember, Andrew Card was the Chief of Staff at the White House when this happened, so it would have been his job if the Shrubbery wanted it done.
