so let me see if I have this right,,,,

ok, so yesterday, it was announced that Bush had hired a lawyer to represent him in the "who outed the CIA agent's identity" investigation,, and today, his director of the CIA resigns,,, and thus far I have heard no one in the media connect these dots....

what are the dots between these two? i'm thinking tenet got out b/c he was tired of being bush's human sheild -- deflecting, absorbing criticism for stuff he was not responsible for.

for example, he was asked to produce intelligence that would support certain claims. he SHOULD have resigned back then, b/c that's unethical. but he stayed. he took the blame for the "16 words" in the State of the Union address, when clearly that was a policy thing...

oh wait... fall guy, again. poor thing.

well, the dots I was refering to were the ones that finished the sylligism of:

1) Bush under investigation for someone revealing the name of a CIA agent to the press,

2) The press involved must name the source to a grand jury, 1st ammendment protection does not work in a grand jury room

3) a grand jury has been convened to investigate the revelation of the name

4) the person revealing the name had to either a) know it already or b) learn it from someone who did,

5) telling the name of a cia agent to someone who is to reveal it is just as illegal as revealing it yourself if you have an objective beleif from the persepective of a reasonable person that the second party will do so

6) the name was revealed

7) causing actual harm to our nations intelligence infrastructure and thus its ability to fight the terrorism we claim to be at war with,,,

and;

8) someone who knew it has now resigned prior to the shit hitting the fan.,

those dots,, that's the ones i was talking about,,,

any of the three!,, i dont know which,, but someone from his dept told someone from bush grand central the identity of a cia agent that was leaked to the press,,, and there just couldnt be that many conduits of info,,, at least secret and comparatively obscure info,,,, if planes agency was a secret, and we know it was, then not many people could have known,, and even fewer of those regularly provided info to the white house,

even more disturbing is the idea that the white house went fishing for the info using the cia...
