"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free....... ~Ronald Reagan~

Moon Bat(s) of The Week Award!

Joe Wilson and Valerie Plame-Wilson
xx
Without any basis in their petition, the husband/wife team of Joe Wilson and Valerie Plame continue with the blame game, or more likely their infatuation with publicity.
xxx
Special Prosecutor Fitzgerald discontinued his grand jury investigation of a "possible" leak, outing Valerie Plame from her CIA desk job and determining no leak or outing ever occurred, the Wilsons are suing everyone and anyone including Vice-President Cheney, Karl Rove and Scooter Libby for ruining Ms. Plames career under the guise, "Whispering Campaign."

Before the suit was filed the Wilsons met with Democrats on Capitol Hill (imagine that) and then held a press conference at the National Press Club. The Wilsons weren't taking any questions. (Imagine that too). Let's not forget the book deals and the celebrity status the Wilsons have gained in Liberal social circles.

Matthew Continetti of Weekly Standard writes, "One thing Joe Wilson keeps track of is his 'Notoriety Quotient,' or the amount of attention he receives from the media." This was the week of weeks for the Wilsons as they paraded around Capitol Hill and in front of the cameras. What pathetic creatures.

Robert Novak originally wrote about the Wilsons, which got all this business of outings and leaks and covert agents rolling. Novak explained:
xxx
Wilson never worked for the CIA, but his wife, Valerie Plame, is an agency operative on weapons of mass destruction. Two senior administration officials told me his wife suggested sending Wilson to Niger to investigate the Italian report. The CIA says its counterproliferation officials selected Wilson and asked his wife to contact him.
xxx
Two senior officials did tell Novak that Plame suggested her husband for the job. (Wilson, Plame, and CIA spokesmen deny that.) And the CIA says its own people asked Plame to act as a liaison between the Agency and Wilson. This was admitted, in fact, as true in discussions with a reporter from Vanity Fair.
xxx
The current lawsuit is about that "Whisper Campaign" to discredit Mr. Wilson and Ms. Plame. Novak is now on the record as disputing the Wilson charges stating, "I saw no such campaign. Nobody in the administration ever said anything critical about Wilson to me. And my column was not critical of Wilson. The information came out to me in the course of an interview by a person who was not — believe me — not in the business of playing political dirty tricks."
xxx
As far as outing Ms. Plame and her covert agent status Novak further explains. "I think an important factor in this is that there was nobody indicted for the violation of the U.S. Intelligence Identity Act for uncovering a secret agent."
xxx
"Bill Harlow said to me that she (Plame) would likely never have another assignment abroad. But as a matter of fact, her life wasn't in danger and he said it is very unlikely she would ever go to Europe. That meant to me that she was not doing any kind of work as an agent in Europe.

Moonbats? YES! The Wilsons are also crazy like a fox. They have an agenda during this election year to discredit the current administration and keep themselves in the limelight. And of course those book deals and a story with no legal merit.
