"I'm now confused. was outing a CIA agent a crime or not?"
From the very title of this DUmmie THREAD, "I'm now confused. was outing a CIA agent a crime or not?" I am suspecting that it was posted by a LOUSY FREEPER TROLL!!! That question gets to the heart of this whole phone Fitzfong investigation. Since Valerie Plame was NOT a covert CIA agent, it was NOT a crime to reveal her name. Also, if it was a crime to reveal her name, why was the LEAKER of her name, Richard Armitage, not indicted? The answer for Armitage's non-indictment comes in two parts. First it was NOT a crime to leak Valerie Plame's name and secondly, Richard Armitage was a Bush critic which gave him automatic immunity in the eyes of the liberals. So let us now watch the DUmmies wrestle with the question of the non-crime in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, saying that Obama was more criminal in not paying his parking tickets than Scooter Libby ever was for telling the truth, is in the [brackets]:
I'm now confused. was outing a CIA agent a crime or not?
[Since Valerie Plame was not covert, the answer is a resounding NO.]
If it is then why has no body been charged with it?
[Because the REAL leaker, Richard Armitage, is chummy with the liberals.]
Fitz couldn't prove anyone knowingly outed her
[Fitzfong knew right from the start that there was no crime as well as the identity of the leaker (Richard Armitage). However, that didn't stop Fitzfong from going on a wild goose chase in a desperate effort to find a crime, any crime. Even one that has to be fabricated.]
He couldn't prove it cause people lied in their testimony specifically, Libby lied.
[Scooter Libby somehow kept Fitzfong from understanding that Valerie Plame was not covert?]
under the Espionage Act the outing does not have to be committed knowingly
[Under the Espionage Act, Valerie Plame has to be covert which she wasn't.]
Because Scooter saw fit to lie and obstruct justice, so the crime couldn't be investigated.
[Because of Scooter, Fitzfong was unable to determine that Richard Armitage was the leaker?]
Yes it is a crime and violates the Espionage Act. Under this statute, bush, cheney, rove, and Scooter can all be sentenced up to life in prison or death for their crimes.
[While the REAL leaker, Richard Armitage, gets a Liberal Immunity Pass.]
The right-wing is spending alot of energy to keep you confused. Obviously a crime was committed.
[Unpaid parking tickets?]
SIMPLE -- He couldn't prove it BECAUSE SCOOTER LIBBY OBSTRUCTED JUSTICE and LIED. So when these wingnuts claim there was "no crime committed" they are full of bullshit. Fitz was quite clear in his first press conference after the Libby indictment that by lying, Libby had "thrown sand in the umpire's eyes"
[It was Scooter's fault that Fitzfong was unable to determine the name of the real leaker, Richard Armitage, although he had Armitage take the vow of omerta.]
Have you ever been at the beach and seen a really hot looking chick? Most likely all you will end up doing is just stare at her, drooling like an idiot. If you try to talk to her you will probably embarrass yourself with your clumsy pickup lines. Well, GOOD NEWS! I now have a product guaranteed to make it EASY to pick up lots of hot looking women at the beach. It is a product I have been using myself and fully endorse: the amazing HELICOPTER KITE. This helicopter kite flies like a helicopter. You can make it go hundreds of feet into the air or hover it just a couple of feet off the ground. The propellor rotation is done entirely by windpower. So how does this help you pick up chicks? Simple. Just hover this helicopter kite a few feet off the ground near the hot beach chick of your choice. In most cases they will be overcome with curiosity and come over to YOU to ask about it. I've run a little experiment on this and it works on about 75% of the women (catch and release in my case since I'm married). My advice is to keep the conversation initially focused on the helicopter kite until you can later make a sneaky segue into asking her out for dinner. From that point on, you're on your own. Please check out the VIDEO of the INCREDIBLE helicopter kite. Not only was the helicopter kite aerodynamically designed but it is also MADE IN THE USA! So feel good about purchasing an AMERICAN MADE toy which makes the perfect method for vastly enhancing your social life. The helicopter kites have a LIFETIME warranty so all defective or broken parts will be replaced. Your purchase of the helicopter kite will not only provide you with lots of hot dates but it will also help keep the DUmmie FUnnies going. So take a look at the VIDEO and be AMAZED! Remember, those hot beach chicks are waiting!
