  •  Here’s the best Scooter is a traitor argum (5+ / 0-)

    If the reports that ‘Valerie Plame worked for the CIA front company Brewster Jennings’ is accurate, and if Brewster Jennings was monitoring Iran’s nuke program, and if Plame’s outing destroyed that monitoring of an enemy of the U.S. (Iran as defined by the Bush/Cheney junta), then by blinding the CIA the NeoCONS in the White House have aided and abetted the enemy Iran and are guilty of treason.  

    If true, Scooter’s sentence should be death!

    •  Even without the Iran tie-in, (4+ / 0-)

      the WH and their GOP cheerleading squad (plus Lieberman) keep running with the meme that we're at war, vs. an occupation.

      Undermining national security during a time of war is a major no-no; protecting those who did so is treasonous, as it helps them remain hidden to do more damage ("aid") and it shields them from scrutiny, oversight, interference and prosecution ("comfort").

      Iran, Iraq or any place with which we are "at war" would do very nicely to exacerbate both the nature of the crime and the potential risk to the nation and the troops.

      "Scooter == Traitor" needs to be the new catchphrase.  That should cause a bit of a ruckus, and explicitly calling folks like Fred Thompson out on why he supports a traitor could do wonders for his Presidential run...

      ;)

      Never, never brave me, nor my fury tempt:
        Downy wings, but wroth they beat;
      Tempest even in reason's seat.
