I have to warn you about today's post. There really is "sensitive content"...I mean I'm a sensitive guy, right? So I should throw in some content now and then, right?
I am stunned that I still see Michael Jackson's trial on the evening news, when President of the United States George W. Bush has been caught publicly consorting with a gay hooker!
Let me give you the short version, although from the pix posted on the internet there's nothing "short" about the Whitehouse play toy.
The most cowardly and treasonous act of the Bush whitehouse was to attack an honest man by divulging that his longserving and professionally highly regarded wife was a CIA agent. This not only endagers her life but has compromised CIA operations and may have already led to the deaths of American agents over seas. This was done because among the lies Bush told in the run up to war in Iraq, was a big lie based on knowingly forged documents claiming that Saddam had purchased nuclear material from Niger. The man sent to Africa verify the documents was Joe Wilson and he reported back that they were false...Very inconvenient ,since Bush sent Colon Powell to the United Nations to claim that they were true. Joe Wilson, a true Patriot, went public with the truth, Bush was lying, Cheney was lying, Powell was Lying, etc...
To punish Wilson, Karl Rove had Wilson's wife attacked, her career and American Intelligence operations ruined, simply as an act of revenge. Well Treason should be enough but since it isn't, It is how this information became public that is interesting.
Jim Guckert is a male prostitute.
Suddenly, he gets a new name, Jeff Gannon, is set up as a reporter working for a suddenly created news agency, Talon News, and given Whitehouse press credentials. Jim Gannon shows up at a Bush Press Conference but is not on the prescripted call-on list Bush is supposed to use. President George W. Bush, in a rare unscripted moment, calls on...
George doesn't read his name off the list...He just calls on him...
Does Bush know this guy?
Newly minted Whitehouse correspondent, Jeff Gannon gushes over George and asks him a softball question that would almost appear planted to someone who wasn't familiar with this Whitehouse's high ethical standards.
Now comes the "High Treason" part...The brand spanking new...
(emphasis on spanking, ok I can't resist, here is the quote from Guckert/Gannon's web site:
"AGGRESIVE, VERBAL, DOMINANT TOP"
I DON'T LEAVE MARKS....ONLY IMPRESSIONS)
Where was I??? Oh Yeah, The Brand Spanking New White house correspondent is given access to classified CIA documents regarding Valerie Plame and "OUTS" her as a CIA agent, thereby screwing Joe Wilson for Karl Rove.
You've heard about all this on Fox News, right?
Rupert Murdoch must be so Pissed! Here's the juiciest sex scandal since the Oval Office Lewinsky, and with high treason to boot, and
Rupert can't use it because he too is a Republican Whore!
We got pictures, and everything...well almost...the most sensitive material is fuzzed out:
You perverts didn't really want to see the "most sensitive material" Did you now?
And thoughtful commentary:
a guy whose name I'll bet you didn't even know kicks some Whitehouse butt...
(OK, skip the lewd commments about the Whitehouse butt being well lubed and visited before being kicked you perverts!)
House Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer:
"Valid questions are being raised regarding the Bush White House's relationship with James Guckert, also known as "Jeff Gannon," and his access to documents that revealed the identity of Undercover CIA Operative Valerie Plame.
"This issue is important from an ethical as well as from a national security standpoint. It is hard to understand why a man with little real journalism experience was given a White House press corps credential let alone access to sensitive security documents. In fact, it only raises questions as to the nature of the relationship between "Jeff Gannon" and the White House, and whether there was an alliance of interests that did not conform to ethical and security standards. President Bush's father, President George H.W. Bush, called the disclosure of an undercover operative's identity treason.
Hoo Boy, I'll say!...An alliance of "Interests" ...This is way too good!
