Right-wing rag The Washington Times defends traitors

Karl Rove, Lewis Libby, and the mystery source for the Plame outing

Case of C.I.A. Officer's Leaked Identity Takes New Turn
Mr. Pincus has not identified his source to the public. But a review of Mr. Pincus's own accounts and those of other people with detailed knowledge of the case strongly suggest that his source was neither Karl Rove, Mr. Bush's top political adviser, nor I. Lewis Libby, the chief of staff to Vice President Dick Cheney, and was in fact a third administration official whose identity has not yet been publicly disclosed.

Mr. Pincus's most recent account, in the current issue of Nieman Reports, a journal of the Nieman Foundation, makes clear that his source had volunteered the information to him, something that people close to both Mr. Rove and Mr. Libby have said they did not do in their conversations with reporters.

This is an administration operating on a tight wire. The majority party in Congress, otherwise known as the Banana Republicans or Bolsheviks are doing every thing they can to provide cover. Possibily even intimadating Fitzgerald, though as Digby and Joe Conason report, the ground work is being laid out, but the thugs are backing off for now. Note the bolsheviks in the republican party and the right-wing blogs total lack of concern about duty, honor, country. Its all about THE PARTY. Remember the Watergate hearings when a bull dog Republican named Howard Baker shoved aside party loyality to pursue the truth and damn the consequences. Where have the good Republicans gone?

The next generation of Roveian chickenhawks

Generation Chickenhawk seems the hypocrisy of today's neoconservative leaders is being emulated by the CRNC kids. For instance, support for the Iraq war is strong among the Republican acolytes, but few want to actually go to war themselves. Most feel that their mission is to convince Americans at home to support the war. Or, as one College Republican told Blumenthal, "I'm not putting my ass on the line because I had the opportunity to go to the number-one business school in the country ... and I wasn't going to pass that up."

Like their moronic messiah Dubya, these peckerwoods are all hat and no cattle.

Bush finds his level: In the gutter.

via Bad Attitudes
The White House on Thursday threatened to veto a massive Senate bill for $442 billion in next year’s defense programs if it moves to regulate the Pentagon’s treatment of detainees or sets up a commission to investigate operations at Guantanamo Bay prison and elsewhere.

The Bush administration, under fire for the indefinite detention of enemy combatants at Guantanamo Bay in Cuba and questions over whether its policies led to horrendous abuses at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq, put lawmakers on notice it did not want them legislating on the matter.

In a statement, the White House said such amendments would “interfere with the protection of Americans from terrorism by diverting resources from the war.”

To paraphrase Jerome, Dumya is saying if you won't let me torture people and retain them without any due process, I'm calling the whole thing off. Adjectives like arrogant, spoiled, elitest, and brat come to mind.
