A couple posts from www.dailykos.com that are worth reading.
1) Anthrax Coulter charges Democrats with "treason" for things like, uh, opposing tax cuts and stuff. I wonder how she feels about Republicans who sell out CIA agents and pass secrets to Iranian spies.
Since I doubt we'll hear her say it, let me -- The Bush Administration is guilty of treason.
So they're getting lawyered up as the Justice Department closes in on the traitors who surrendered a CIA agent for political gain, at the same time as our intelligence agencies realize with dawning horror that Chalabi the spy, Friend of Bush, tipped off the Iranians that we had broken their code.
For the record, there is no higher intelligence success than breaking an enemy's code. And there is no greater intelligence failure than tipping off that enemy that we have their code.
There is nothing ideological in this accusation. This administration sold out our intelligence services to political expediency and ideological loyalty to a convicted felon. The facts are clear on the matter.
2) Update: Post Enron scandal, Bush pretended he had no clue who that Kenny Boy character was. When asked about Ken Lay, Bush responded with something like, "Oh, that's the guy who backed my opponent for governor, Ann Richards!'
Well, he's now pulling the same trick with Chalabi.
Q Thank you, Mr. President. Mr. Chalabi is an Iraqi leader that's fallen out of favor within your administration. I'm wondering if you feel that he provided any false information, or are you particularly --
THE PRESIDENT: Chalabi?
Q Yes, with Chalabi.
THE PRESIDENT: My meetings with him were very brief. I mean, I think I met with him at the State of the Union and just kind of working through the rope line, and he might have come with a group of leaders. But I haven't had any extensive conversations with him. ...
As usual, the buck stops somewhere else in this administration. Atrios has the pictures and quotes proving George a liar. Again.
