Pitt Demands Investigation Of Cheney In 24 Business Hours

Are you ready for a shock? The Bush Administration authorized the CIA to capture or kill Osama Bin Laden and other top Al Qaeda leaders. GASP! The next thing you know, there will be a shocking revelation that professional wrestling is fixed. And now the hero of the Karl Rove indictment scoop of May 12, 2006 wants an investigation of Dick Cheney for somehow withholding from Congress something which was already published in the New York Times and which everybody down to small kids already knew---a program to kill or capture terrorists. Police captain Louis Renard is shocked, shocked, that we wished to inflict harm on Al Qaeda while top Democrats were screeching about how the Bush administration had NOT yet killed nor captured Osama Bin Laden. So now we have William Rivers Pitt demanding to investigate Cheney for his part in supposedly keeping this "secret" information secret. And where is he expressing his outrage? Why, in the pages of that august periodical, TruthOut which published his Karl Rove indictment scoop. The same TruthOut which, ironically has recently published an ARTICLE by Pitt's co-conspirator, the "former" drug addict, liar, thief, and overall degenerate, Jason Leopold, in whom Pitt assured had great journalistic integrity. And the article is laughably about Karl Rove, a subject you would think Leopold would try to avoid forever. Was Dick Cheney ever seen in the vicinity of Newton, MA? No matter. Pitt wants him investigated no matter what as you can see in this DUmmie THREAD, "Now Can We Investigate?" Yes, can we now investigate how a certain teacher used his position to take advantage of young school girls? Oops! Wrong case. So let us now watch the DUmmies get all outraged over the political equivalent of the big secret of fixed professional wrestling in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, watching "Wedding Crashers" over and over again for tips in preparation for a New England trip this October, is in the [brackets]:

Now Can We Investigate?

[Yes, but first you must wait 24 business hours.]

President Obama is in the process of losing what may be the most important argument of his young administration. The argument is not about health care, bank bailouts, the economy, Iraq, Afghanistan, Iran, Pakistan, the environment or the auto industry, though arguments on these issues are indeed ongoing and hanging in the balance.

[Yeah, investigating Dick Cheney is so much more important to the average person than whether our economy is going into the tank or future acts of terror.]

No, the Obama administration is losing the argument about the past being less important than the future. They would like his government, Congress and the American people to look forward, and to leave behind as much of the past as possible. The past, in this case, is the battery of crimes, cover-ups and tyrannies unleashed by their predecessors in the Bush administration.

[Crimes and cover-ups? Can we now send the investigators to a certain schoolyard in Newton, MA?]

The Obama administration's argument in favor of leaving the myriad abuses of the Bush administration to the dustbin of history is understandable, though hardly valid at this point. Obama and his team have a thousand and one problems to deal with in the here and now, and according to them, any attempt to quest into the past will derail all the work they have to do. They are also justifiably concerned that Republicans in Congress will try to burn down the Capitol building if Democrats even twitch in the direction of digging up the past.

[So is this an argument to NEVER forget a certain heinous series of crimes in Newton, MA?]

Understandable? Sure. Valid? Not by a long chalk.

[Channeling the Temporary Sockpuppet!]

Half a dozen times since his inauguration, President Obama has seen his agenda depth-charged by a report on some nefarious activity by the previous administration. Not only have his plans and intentions been derailed by these reports - whether they be about torture, government secrecy, indefinite detention, or whatever else - he has himself become culpable for the damage done by either trying to ignore these transgressions or by adopting them himself.

[Bring all the Newton crimes to light! Don't ignore them!]

It happened again this weekend. The Obama administration has been trying to gear up for a millennial debate over health care reform, but Mr. Bush and Mr. Cheney have once again gotten in the way, not once but twice. "The Bush administration authorized secret surveillance activities that still have not been made public, according to a new government report that questions the legal basis for the unprecedented anti-terrorism program," reported The Associated Press on Friday. "President George W. Bush authorized other secret intelligence activities - which have yet to become public - even as he was launching the massive warrentless wiretapping program, the summary said. It describes the entire program as the 'President's Surveillance Program.' The report describes the program as unprecedented and raises questions about the legal grounding used for its creation. It also says the intelligence agencies' continued retention and use of the information collected under the program should be carefully monitored."

[How dare the Bush administration conduct secret surveillance of terrorists! They should have publicly revealed all such surveillance so each terrorist could be notified that they were being watched.]

"The Central Intelligence Agency withheld information about a secret counterterrorism program from Congress for eight years on direct orders from former Vice President Dick Cheney, the agency's director, Leon E. Panetta, has told the Senate and House intelligence committees, two people with direct knowledge of the matter said Saturday," reported The New York Times on Sunday. "The report that Mr. Cheney was behind the decision to conceal the still-unidentified program from Congress deepened the mystery surrounding it, suggesting that the Bush administration had put a high priority on the program and its secrecy."

[A super super "secret" program to kill or capture top terrorists. The secrecy of this program was exceeded only by the top secret that professional wrestling is fixed.]

Thud. Nobody is talking about health care now, or Ghana or nuclear reduction deals with the Russians. Just like that, all discussion has once again turned to the actions and activities of the Bush administration. President Obama has been acting as if only two options - ignorance or adoption - are available to deal with these Bush-era eruptions, because he does not want his presidency to become overwhelmed by the third available option: investigation and prosecution.

[It might be too late for investigation and prosecution. I need to check the MA state laws for the statue of limitations.]

Guess what? The Obama administration is already being overwhelmed, and will continue to lose ground every time another one of these wretched revelations hits the headlines, which they will, over and over again. There is more out there about Bush and Cheney's torture program. There is more out there about their indefinite detention program, about their broad policy of absolute secrecy, about how and why we invaded Iraq, about their domestic surveillance program - specifically, who got spied on in America and why - and even about exactly what happened before and on September 11.

[Hmmm... The latter observation brings our Pitt into Truther territory. Paging Alex Jones!]

Let's investigate. Let's prosecute. Let's clean out the Augean stables of the Bush administration and put things right again. It's not as if the desire to do exactly that isn't already present in the body politic. A majority of Democrats and a whole passel of Americans want to see the crimes and cover-ups of the Bush administration looked into and punished with vigor.

[Let's investigate. Let's prosecute...a certain Temporary Sockpuppet.]

Some members of Congress appear poised to do just that. "House Democrats said yesterday that they expect to launch a formal investigation into a secret CIA program that was not disclosed to Congress for almost eight years, a probe that could entangle senior Bush administration officials who oversaw intelligence issues, reported The Washington Post on Sunday. "Democrats on the House intelligence committee said the inquiry would examine both the nature of the still-secret program and the decisions to keep congressional oversight committees in the dark about its existence."

[Why? Oh WHY was the secret program of fixing professional wrestling bouts withheld from Congress?]

And Congress, it seems, may not be alone. "(Attorney General Eric) Holder, 58, may be on the verge of asserting his independence in a profound way," reported Newsweek on Saturday. "Four knowledgeable sources tell NEWSWEEK that he is now leaning toward appointing a prosecutor to investigate the Bush administration's brutal interrogation practices, something the president has been reluctant to do. While no final decision has been made, an announcement could come in a matter of weeks, say these sources, who decline to be identified discussing a sensitive law-enforcement matter."

[Holder? Oh yes. The hero of the Marc Rich pardon. Now there is someone with the ethical stature to take up this investigation.]

Let's get it over with, shall we?

[Okay, I'll forget all about the Karl Rove indictment scoop. And now we hear from the rest of the pretend outrage DUmmies...]

the evidence is mounting.....on a daily basis

[Those Newton schoolgirls are now singing?]

We must investigate, prosecute, and punish where appropriate. If not, we become accomplices and history will not judge us well.

[Frogwalk Dick Cheney across the White House lawn...right after Karl Rove is indicted on May 12, 2006.]

Bush, Cheney, and all their cabal have openly admitted to TREASON, Usurping the Constitution, and actual WAR CRIMES,, what more do they have to do to get charged, or at least investigated???,, a first year law student could get a conviction from all they have done and admitted to..

[Jason Leopold for special prosecutor? BTW, does Pitt still talk to his colleague from TruthOut? They share such warm Fitzmas memories.]

I feel that the entire Bush/Cheney illegal regime of thugs and cronies should be investigated -- starting with Bush/Cheney/Rumsefeld/Rice, and continuing right through until every single war criminal, thug, cronie, lackey, and thief in that horrible, evil, corrupt and illegal regime has been completely and totally investigated.

[Investigate them all including the Bush presidential dog, Barney!]

It is NOT a waste of time to do these investigations. The illegal and totally corrupt Bush/Cheney regime of thugs and cronies engaged in torture and other terrible war crimes. They took this nation to war for NO reason, and they bombed innocent children and women in Iraq, and had thousands of American soldiers killed just to satisfy the blood lust of Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Rice, and the rest of those evil monsters.

[Horrible torture by A/C and stuffing Gitmo prisoners with second helpings of food. The SHAME of it all!!!]

And they deserve to be not just investigated. They deserve to be indicted, tried, and CONVICTED for their terrible crimes. And they deserve imprisonment in the same types of cells they put "detainees" into. Monstrous people who commit monstrous crimes should be investigated. We did it at Nuremburg after WWII. We MUST DO IT NOW!


Afternoon kick

[Declared Pied Piper Pitt, kicking himself.]

There almost had to have been some complicity in all this on the part of some Democrats in Congress. Even if Holder and/or Obama wanted to proceed, might they be dissuaded by the party and by the need to maintain a Democratic majority?

[No, no. The Democrats were all hermetically sealed from the "top secret" information that we were going after terrorists. Oh, and they also had absolutely no idea that professional wrestling is fixed.]

Now Will, there ya go again making sense

[Will is making as much sense as his explanation that the Karl Rove indictment will be delayed by 24 business hours.]

Oh well, at least they have a hobby.

I don't think anyone is really going to take them seriously. After all if Conyers has bailed, and Pelosi is only squawking because she lied about the CIA not informing her and needs a smoke screen...

They got nothin'.

Democrats are - fortunately - exactly like (and often identical to) criminals: they always trip over their own basic stupidity.

Here they are at almost historic levels of power (despite Obama's sharply declining poll numbers). All they have to do to hang onto power for a while is gently push their liberal agenda - to keep their base happy - and take care of some basic issues like security and the economy.

That's it. Take care of the basics, keep their mouths shut, and a second Obama administration is a sure bet; a dozen years of Democrat rule in Congress is equally certain.

But like the bumbling criminals they are, they seem determined to do something just stupid enough to throw it all away.

The last six months has been like watching a re-run of "World's Stupidest Criminals."

And its going to have the same ending, too. Their plans will collapse (as they already are), the public will finally see through the HopeyChangy propaganda (as they already are), and in the end ... we'll all be wonderfully amused and entertained.

Thank God criminals and liberals are so reliably stupid. Law enforcement and conservatives would have a much harder job otherwise.

You should DEFINITELY push for investigations, Democrats. That's the ticket. Make sure you condemn Bush administration efforts to capture terrorists. Go get 'em, boys. It's working so well for you.

Hey you guys noticed something? In the months after the election the Obamabots were all mocking and amused. They had won and felt invincible. Now, with the messiah's programs stalled and his approval shrinking, they are starting to get all bug-eyed and furious again.

I think Kayin's little lunatic diatribe is indicative of serious fear on their part that their chocolate Jesus is starting to melt

Do conduct investigations. Do show the people how Democrats give more consideration to terrorists that will saw your head off then they do to Americans. Can't wait.
