Just Asking. . .



Bob Woodward

. . . if a special prosecutor is investigating an alleged felony, and you have evidence that is relevant to said investigation, are you allowed to just sit back and say nothing? Just because nobody asked you directly?

That seems kind of, well, convenient.

When is obstruction of justice triggered?

    This Woodward story is just another connection to the war going on between the CIA bureaucracy and the White House…

    The press can be incredibly unfair to you if they are on a Crusade against you, your business, or your cause. At worst, they will violate the law to harm you or the public. Check this out…

    “The CIA has established joint operation centers in more than two dozen countries where U.S. and foreign intelligence officers work side by side to track and capture suspected terrorists and to destroy or penetrate their networks, according to current and former American and foreign intelligence officials.” — Wa Post ( http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2005/11/17/AR2005111702070.html )

    There is a war going on right now… No, not the one we all hear about in Iraq. This war is the one between the CIA bureaucracy and the White House.

    The White House, under President Bush, and his appointed CIA Director, Porter Goss, are trying to reform the CIA after the disastrous intelligence failures leading up to the Afghan War (we didn’t get Bin Laden), the Iraq War (we couldn’t find Saddam Hussein to decapitate the government at the start of the war, the bad assessments concerning his WMD’s… which might still exist in some form or another, the rise of the Islamist resistance, etc.), the stealing of our most valuable military secrets to China (missile guidance technology, our blueprints for our most advanced nuclear warheads, loss of our silent submarine technology, the downing of that surveillance plane, and the loss of our directed energy weapon technology… gee, what could be worse?!), and other failures.

    The CIA is a mess.

    And the entrenched bureaucrats are fighting reform. So, now they are making selective leaks, of top secret missions, to the liberal press, in order to embarrass and harm Bush, as a way of trying to effectively neuter his administration. It has become a very nasty war. And this is proof of why we need a serious house cleaning at the CIA. When major governmental bureaucracies are under attack, they will do anything… ANYTHING… to save themselves. Even to the point of being traitors to their country. This leak is TREASONOUS. Not only should the sources for this story be hunted down and jailed for life, this reporter should also be jailed for aiding and abetting the enemy.

    This really is an example of “the enemy within”.

    As someone once said… and I’m paraphrasing this quote… the Bill of Rights is not a suicide pact.

    I don’t think we need to put up with this kind of garbage. It’s time some heads rolled. We have soldiers in the field, dying on a mission we sent them to perform. This endangers the lives of our people.

    Do you think this kind of story would have been printed in WW II, in either Britain or the US? No way. The reporters would have been arrested… and possibly hanged.
