  •  and the Iran Crypto Leak, and... (31+ / 0-)

    Brewster Jennings was also involved in scoping out the usually-secret data from the various Middle Eastern state oil ministries, about the best known estimates of oil reserves.  Those data are vital to estimating when the moment of peak oil will occur, and the likely geopolitical alignments and maneuvers at that point.  

    And let's not forget the Iran Crypto Leak, as reported in Time Magazine.  Senior admin official goes out drinking with Chalabi guy, tells the latter that the US has successfully broken Iran's high-level diplomatic & military encryption systems.  The very next day, NSA intercepts this information being relayed to Iran's government.  And you can be that shortly after, our SIGINT on Iran went dark.  Just as we need it more than ever before.  

    Treason?  Yep.  Whoever did that one deserves to be locked up for the rest of their lives.  And yet to date no one has been prosecuted for it.

        agents were killed or spending the rest of their life in jail.

        Some GOP are so slimy they try to downplay the fact that Bush outed a secret agent and therefore all of her contacts and networks for political purposes.

        This is treason of the worst possible sort.

        It's as complete disgrace that Bush and his minions are still in office.

        A total shame.  

        And all the Congresspeople that do not soon call for impeachment will be disgraced along with the GOP enablers.

        This is a historic tradgedy.

          agents killed as a direct result of this outing. Unconfirmed estimates are that there were likely more deaths.

            It is so tiresome to keep here GOP or even so called MSM journalists say "no crime" was committed here.

            There are so many crimes I can't even count them.

            Well I suppose i could and should.  But I'm tired. Maybe I do it tomorrow.

            So Only two undercover agents killed as a direct result of Bush's politically motivated smear.

            To prevent the American voters from learning of his intelligence lies he used to take our country into an illegal war for false purposes.

            Wherein ONLY 100,000 Iraqi's have billed killed.  Only 2300 or so Americans, 16,000 American maimed or injured, and a counte of maimed and injured Iraqis that may be half a million.

            Not to count the 400,000 Iraqi children estimated to be dieing of wasting disease. (Malnutrition, lack of clean water, shelter etc.)

            •  Absolutely stunning and confounding, isn't it? (0+ / 0-)

              The Republicans are able to use the media to wind up Bill and his bj into a huge and politically deadly issue, yet the Dems can't get the masses rallying because of the deaths of hundreds of thousands of actual people. Maybe if we sent some injured Iraqis to Aruba they'd accidently wander into the range of a FOX camera and trigger a breathless investigation. Sigh, I'm tired too.

        ...that man destroyed both ends of our intel on Iran (SIGINT and HUMINT) just as this atomic bomb stuff gets going.  

        For some reason I didn't know about the outing of US spies in Iran; I tend to be more aware of SIGINT issues than HUMINT issues, but I'm surprised I missed that one.  

        The level of incompetence is shocking.  This is so bad it's almost as if it's deliberate.  

        Yeah, another count of treason.  How many counts, how many potential life sentences are we talking about at this point...?  

        •  Maybe it was deliberate. (0+ / 0-)

          Maybe they are selling stuff to Iran, and attempting to intervene also, kind of like what happened in Iraq?

          •  maybe Iran knows something... (0+ / 0-)

            Maybe the Iranian government knows something, and is using it for blackmail.  

            Maybe it has to do with Reagan's arms-for-hostages deal that was negotiated by the Reagan campaign staff while Carter was still in office.  

            Maybe that's also what's called treason.  (Hey, does anyone know if there's a statute of limitations on that?)
