A Liberal Marines Progressive Perspective

Marines are defenders of the republic and the Constitution. That is our oath, that is our purpose, that is our calling. Many are Democrats. This is the journal of one such Marine. This leatherneck's progressive perspective is as follows...

Read "War Is A Racket" by 2-time Medal of Honor recipient Maj.Gen.S.D.Butler, plus Lewis B. Puller, Jr.'s "Fortunate Son" and maybe then you'll understand. Semper Fi!

Hey Karl, The Ice Man Cometh: Indictment Fears and The End of Boy Genius' Pipe Dreams of a Thousand Year Right-Wing, Republican Reich Posted by Picasa
Good morning all. Quick post and then I'm out. This whole area (the D.C. Metropolitan area), especially inside the Beltway, is all abuzz over possible indictments being handed down in the near future in terms of the Valerie Plame/CIA leak investigation. Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald could drop the indictments/"legal bombs" anyday now...and the good bet is that one of those indictments will have Karl Rove's name written all over it. Oh yes, I believe we are witnessing the beginning of the end of a long and tortured career of political espionage and sabotage that goes all the way back to "drop-out" Rove's shenanigans at the RNC during the early 1970's to his principal participation in viciously smearing Governor Ann Richards (D-TX) in terms of questioning her sexuality during the 1994 Texas gubernatorial campaign to being the chief architect of the strategies and tactics that led to the hijacking of the nation during the 2000 election debacle (and perhaps even the 2004 election) and on and on. Oh yes, the chickens are certainly coming home to roost on this one! I watched an excellent Hardball piece (Chris Matthews at his "cut the b.s." best...click and see this video, it is incredible!) that clearly and succinctly put in chronological order how we got from the 2003 State of the Union Address to where we are now: i.e., SOTU 2003 where the President boldly stated Iraq was aggressively trying to manufacture nuclear weapons vis-a-vis Niger uranium (the notorious "yellow cake" we've all heard about) to columnist Robert Novak (in an effort to discredit Ambassador Joe Wilson, husband of Valerie Plame...which back-fired in a big way I might add) unwittingly "dropping massive dimes" by revealing that two senior White House officials disclosed Plame's identity as a CIA operative to him (which is a violation of Federal law under the Intelligence Identities Protection Act of 1982) to now where we are all on "pins and needles" awaiting what can be described as a deluge of possible indictments on the White House via the decision of Special Prosecutor Fitzgerald (a decision/indictments that can come any day now...today, tomorrow, who knows?) that will utterly drench, soak and quite possibly wash away the GWB Administration for all intents and purposes. I'm going to close on what is sticking out in my mind: Matt Cooper's source was Karl Rove, the President's chief political advisor, chief political strategist, and Deputy White House Chief of Staff in charge of policy (and with all of those titles who knows how far and wide Rove's influence and "jurisdiction" actually stretches) and Judith "Judy" Miller's source was I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby ("I. Lewis Libby"...kinda rhymes with "G. Gordon Liddy" doesn't it...but I'll digress), the Vice-President's Chief of Staff as well as the Vice President's Assistant for National Security Affairs (and Libby's function as the VP's ANSA begs this question: in this capacity, how could Libby NOT know Valerie Plame's true status and identity?). So, this not only puts us inside the White House...it also puts us inside the West Wing and the highest echelons of the WHO (the White House Office) and the EOP (the Executive Office of the President). Nixon redux? Heck, Nixon had nothing on these suckers. Take care all and Semper Fidelis
