ROVEGATE -- July 10, 2005 --Newsweek magazine is reporting on the contents of a July 11, 2003 email between reporter Matt Cooper and Time Washington bureau chief Michael Duffy that was handed over, along with other email and notes, to special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald. Although the email shows that Rove talked to Cooper about Ambassador Joe Wilson's wife, there is no mention of how columnist Robert Novak obtained the information on Brewster Jennings & Associates, the carve out brass plate firm that was used by Valerie Plame and her colleagues and which was rolled up as a result of the leak. Rove and his lawyer are trying to limit the spin to Rove "not knowing" Plame's name, let alone that she was a covert CIA agent. Yet Plame's association with a non-official cover (NOC), by default, means that she was covert, pure and simple. Brewster Jennings reportedly "suffered greatly" as a result of the disclosure, according to a knowledgeable source. Another source reported that at least one Brewster Jennings NOC operating in a hostile intelligence environment was executed by counter-intelligence agents as a result of the White House disclosure. Other B&JA assets were forced to abandon their ongoing operations to identify networks involved in weapons of mass destruction proliferation. The CIA has been working on a damage assessment report on the Plame/B&JA disclosures. If no indictments of White House officials result from the Fitzgerald investigation, look for parts of that highly classified report to be leaked and then look for more imprisonments of journalists who refuse to divulge the source(s) of those leaks. Word from intelligence sources is that the damage assessment report is "devastating."(Thanks to Randi Rhodes show.)

This would be the proverbial nail. This is why Repubs are hesitant to back him, and why he's being evasive. He may not even know the damage, so it's like he's having to strategize all kinds of scenarios.
I bet he had no idea how much he bit off a couple years ago.

Let's give Tom Clancy a call and ask him to turn this into his a bestseller. If he did so, all the right demographics would be hit. If.

Are we at last at a point in these daily revelations where we can now consider the Bush administration COMPLICIT in these terror attacks?
THEY HAVE BENEFITTED NO ONE BUT THE ADMINISTRATION AND ITS CORPORATE CRONYS.
From 9/11 itself to date, these ARE ALL PLANNED BLACK BAG OPERATIONS INTENDED TO CREATE THE JUSTIFICATION FOR THE CURTAILING (DESTRUCTION) OF CIVIL LIBERTIES, THE UNLEASHING OF THE WAR MACHINE AND THE IMPOVERISHMENT AND DESTRUCTION OF THE MIDDLE CLASS.
See who these pricks are for yourselves:
