In the wake of TraitorGate, Mark’s interview with Ambassador Joe Wilson last summer takes on a whole new meaning. Mark replays snippets of that interview, along with his comments on the Traitor of TraitorGate: Vice President Dick Cheney
Special Guest: CIA intelligence analyst and State Department counter-terrorism official Larry Johnson, member of the Steering Group of Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity, who has written extensively defending Valerie Plame Wilson from the Administration criminals who committed treason by destroying her.
In his words: “It is slowly dawning on the American people that the Bush administration attack on Valerie and Joe Wilson was part of a broader conspiracy to hide the fact that our political leaders fabricated a case for war in Iraq. Dick Cheney, Scooter Libby, and Karl Rove, among others, apparently preferred to destroy a valuable intelligence asset rather than expose the truth that the United States went to war in Iraq based on misinformation and deception. That is a crime deserving the most serious punishment.”
Guest: Professor Jamin Raskin of American University
As I predicted, after Harriet Miers, Bush moved to the Hard Right-Wing, nominating Scalia clone Judge Samuel Alito (nicknamed “Scalito”) to the United States Supreme Court.
Unlike Chief Justice Roberts – a close case I agreed to support – or the unqualified crony Harriet Miers, who I did not, if Scalito is true to his nickname, there is only one option: FILIBUSTER!
If he threatens to be another Scalia, all stops must be pulled to prevent such an extremist from trying to exercise power over our private lives.
Maybe only then will Bush pick a Republican nominee that both parties can respect.
