Does anyone remember the uproar from the left when Valerie Plame was allegedly outed as a CIA agent? Despite the fact that she was not undercover and the fact that the special prosecutor knew who mentioned her name, the left went bonkers and salivated over the prospect of Bush Administration officials being “frog marched” out of the White House.
Karl Rove was the target even though someone else was known to have “outed” her (but only by the special prosecutor at the time) and the left had wet dreams about him being arrested.
Plame and her husband, Joe Wilson, played the drama for all it was worth and made the Bush Administration out to be bad guys in the affair.
Where is all this outrage now that the Obama Regime has outed a CIA agent to the world? Raymond Davis is being held in Pakistan as a spy after he shot two armed men who were behaving badly. The Obama Regime has told the world that Davis is an employee of the CIA but that he is not involved in intelligence gathering. The Pakistanis think differently and now Davis’ life is going to be more complicated if not very much shorter.
Did the Obama Regime sign Davis’ death warrant?
And where is the outrage? Where are the members of the media and their outrage over outing a CIA agent?
Why are Democrats not up in arms and demanding that people be frog marched from the White House?
Davis’ identity was truly not known, contrary to the issue with Plame and now it looks like he is in even more danger.
The Obama Regime is full of anti American morons.
Never surrender, never submit.

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.
