A Washington Post article reports “Former ambassador Joseph C. Wilson IV, (was) dispatched by the CIA in February 2002 to investigate reports that Iraq sought to reconstitute its nuclear weapons program with uranium from Africa… Wilson last year launched a public firestorm with his accusations that the administration had manipulated intelligence to build a case for war. He has said that his trip to Niger should have laid to rest any notion that Iraq sought uranium there and has said his findings were ignored by the White House.”
In retaliation for Wilson’s report, which undermined the neocon case for war, someone in the Bush administration exposed the identity of CIA agent Valerie Plame, who happened to be Wilson’s wife. If Valerie Plame had been operating in a foreign country, she could have been thrown in prison for espionage. In any case, her career as a covert CIA agent has been destroyed by a vindictive act. A Newsweek source has recently pointed the finger of guilt at Karl Rove.
Most ordinary Americans have absolutely no clue about the true nature of the Bush administration. Mr. and Mrs. Joe Sixpack still believe that Bush is doing everything with the purest of intentions. They also believe that he is a great friend of Christianity and that he’ll oppose the Gay agenda. Considering all that, it’s long overdue for ordinary Americans to take a close look at Karl Rove.
Karl Rove is possibly the most dishonest individual ever to appear in the Republican Party and he holds tremendous power. Rove is effectively the chief of propaganda for Bush. Not too surprisingly Rove appears to deviate from a normal lifestyle as well as the truth. One news article reports “Walter Storch, editor of the Barnes Review News reported three weeks ago that ‘Karl Rove was seen by one of my people entering a private homosexual orgy at a five-star Washington hotel over the Mid-Atlantic Leather (MAL) weekend last year… Karl used to hang out a JR’s, which is on 17th between P & S streets, before he became so well-known. This is a respectable gay bar for discreet people…”
It should be noted that while George Bush gave lip service to the campaign against Gay marriage, all the real work was done by local Republicans, who put anti-Gay marriage bills on the ballot in several states in 2004. Bush could have passed an anti-Gay marriage bill as federal legislation, but it seems something kept him from doing so.
An Associated Press article reports “For the better part of two years, the word coming out of the Bush White House was that presidential adviser Karl Rove had nothing to do with the leak of a female CIA officer’s identity and that whoever did would be fired. But Bush spokesman Scott McClellan wouldn’t repeat those claims Monday in the face of Rove’s own lawyer, Robert Luskin, acknowledging the political operative spoke to Matthew Cooper of Time magazine, one of the reporters who disclosed Valerie Plame’s name. Democrats jumped on the issue, calling for the administration to fire Rove, or at least to yank his security clearance. One Democrat pushed for Republicans to hold a congressional hearing in which Rove would testify. ‘The White House promised if anyone was involved in the Valerie Plame affair, they would no longer be in this administration,’ said Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev. ‘I trust they will follow through on this pledge. If these allegations are true, this rises above politics and is about our national security.’ ”
It is crystal clear to anyone with an open mind that Karl Rove betrayed the identity of a CIA agent as a vindictive political payback. George Bush is pretending to be protecting American interests while he is simply carrying out a war plan written by Zionist neocons. George Bush is pretending to be a religious man, who opposes the Gay agenda, while his right hand man is a deceitful homosexual pervert, who betrayed a CIA agent, and who belongs in jail –if George Bush would only stop protecting him.
