Better Get Mr. Joe Wilson Plame On The Case

Joe Wilson, Valerie Plame’s husband, is the guy who was sent on a mission by Mrs. Plame, a so called covert CIA agent (I am still having trouble reconciling how she was supposed to be covert but you could call the CIA and ask for her and they would put you through), to see if Iraq was trying to obtain yellow cake uranium.

He came back and lied about a few things. He claimed that Hussein (the one in Iraq not the one in the White House) had not tried to purchase uranium though at the time he made the allegation there was reason to believe that he had. According to Fact Check:

Ironically, former Ambassador Joseph Wilson, who later called Bush’s 16 words a “lie”, supplied information that the Central Intelligence Agency took as confirmation that Iraq may indeed have been seeking uranium from Niger.

Wilson also claimed that VP Dick Cheney had sent him on the mission but he was sent by his wife, not the VP. But this post is not about Joe Wilson and Iraq. It is about Joe Wilson and Iran.

We need Joe Wilson to quickly go to Kazakhstan and determine if Iran has been trying to purchase Uranium. Then we need him to hurry back and write a report and we need it to be done quickly. Obama’s tired butt will be back from Hawaii soon and he will deliver the State of the Union Address next month. We need to make sure he does not insert 16 words that will lead us to war with Iran.

This is all necessary because:

Iran is close to clinching a deal to clandestinely import 1,350 tons of purified uranium ore from Kazakhstan, according to an intelligence report obtained by The Associated Press on Tuesday. Diplomats said the assessment was heightening international concern about Tehran’s nuclear activities.

Such a deal would be significant because Tehran appears to be running out of the material, which it needs to feed its uranium enrichment program.

The report was drawn up by a member nation of the International Atomic Energy agency and provided to the AP on condition of that the country not be identified because of the confidential nature of the information. My Way News

This is all looking eerily familiar. With the claim that a nation that some of us think is an enemy trying to sneak in uranium, with reports from unnamed sources, with heightened tensions, it all looks just like the lead up to the invasion of Iraq.

There is a bit of a difference. Iraq was in violation of UN Resolutions from the first Gulf War and our Congress gave authorization to use military force there. Iran has been an enemy for decades and we should have handled it before but it is unlikely that a Democratic controlled Congress would vote to authorize military force there at this point in time (and frankly we do not need another war).

So, we need Mr. Valerie Plame to quickly write up a report saying that none of this is true so we can avoid a fight that liberals have no will to start or complete.

Of course, we could just let the Israelis handle it and be done with it.

It will be interesting to see how Obama and his liberals handle this. We were told that Hussein was no threat to us and we had no right to go in there (a subject for another debate) so how will we be sold Iran? Will we be told that the uranium means nothing and that they cannot harm us (Obama said they were a little nation and not a threat) or will we be pitched a great story of how dangerous they are?

It will be interesting because it was the Dems who ignored the reports about Iran and then gleefully said I told you so when an incorrect (false?) report indicated Iran had no nuclear program. They had one and it was hidden. By the time we were informed about it they were well ahead of where we thought they would be. They also suddenly had a few more enrichment facilities. Perhaps if Democrats had not ignored what they were told. Well, you never could trust that George Bush to keep you safe.

In any event this will be a tough one for the Democrats. They already demonstrated their weakness on national security this week (maybe White House security was put in charge of the airports) and if they ignore Iran they will look even weaker. If they take action it will be in direct conflict with how they felt and what they said about Iraq.

Maybe they will just let Obama decide the matter. The way he deliberates and as long as it takes him to arrive at a decision, Iran should have enough nuclear weapons to cause the end of the world.

Like I said, let’s just “mind” our own business and let Israel settle the issue. At least we know the job will be done right.

    I’m sure poor old Israel can figure something out. Maybe the US can sell them even more planes and more nukes but they can somehow still pretend to be under constant siege by Palestinians and crazy Iranian leaders in order to justify their aggressive and illegal foreign policy adventures.

  2. Big Dog says:

    Maybe if all the people would stop attacking Israel and stop blowing themselves up in that country or perhaps stop lobbing rockets in there each day Israel would not have to retaliate. Israel is a peaceful nation that wants to coexist. It gets attacked and retaliates and anti Semites like you blame them. When your enemy threatens to do something you listen. Threatening to wipe Israel off the map is something to pay attention to.

    I do have to say though, you are consistent. You take the bad guys side all the time. You anti Semites are all alike.

    Why are you a Jew hater?

  3. Adam says:

    “Israel is a peaceful nation that wants to coexist.”

    Just keep telling yourself that, ignoring all history and evidence to the contrary.

    “You anti Semites are all alike.”

    Yes, I hate the Jews and I like to see them tortured and bombed and killed and… Oh wait, no. That’s how you feel about Muslims. I got confused. I’m fine with the Jews, so keep dreaming.

  4. Big Dog says:

    The Jews got a piece of land and have been attacked since. The non Jews who live in Israel do not live under oppression, they are free. Jews want to be left alone but the Muzzies keep bothering them.

    I can’t help it you are a Jew hater.

    I do not want to see Muslims tortured, bombed or killed. I want to see the bad guys killed no matter where they are from. Torture does not happen, not as it was defined, so you are as usual incorrect.

    You are an anti Semite, that is your business. Keep backing the bad guys over Israel. No problem.

    I always wonder why Jews vote Democrat when you are a bunch of Jew hating anti Semites.

  5. Adam says:

    Yes, the Jews just want to be left alone. Another piece of revisionist history on par with the “Republicans aren’t racist, after all we freed the slaves!” Keep dreaming.

    • Blake says:

      Adam- Just WHAT is it about Israel that you find offensive? Is it the fact that it is they against the ENTIRE Arab world? Do you really think that the Jews are a nation that wants to acquire other nations?
      You should read the history of the formation of Israel, rather than accept the tired and WRONG liberal screed that you get in most schools- if you read an impartial view of this, you might change your mind- thenagain, perhaps not.

      • Darrel says:

        There are good arguments on both sides of this. There have been atrocities committed by both sides starting with Israel in the early days. Bottomline, this land war is all exacerbated by the fact that we have two competing groups of people who both happen to belong to The One True religion and their competing Gods gave the same land to each of them. Oops.

        A story as old as time.

        “They can hold all the peace talks they want, but there will never be peace in the Middle East. Billions of years from now, when Earth is hurtling toward the Sun and there is nothing left alive on the planet except a few microorganisms, the microorganisms living in the Middle East will be bitter enemies.”
