Larisa, Plame, Cheney & Pataki
Forget Dick "Burr" Cheney's bad aim for a moment, there is nothing bigger than Larisa Alexandrovna's latest at Raw Story: Outed CIA officer was working on Iran, intelligence sources say.
Then again...don't forget about Cheney's bad aim.
Cause Cheney's bad aim is a factor in this revelation, as well.
Cheney played a part in outing Valerie Plame, a CIA operative, who "was part of an operation tracking distribution and acquisition of weapons of mass destruction technology to and from Iran."
Bad aim, Cheney.
In August of 2004, I wrongly predicted that New York Governor George Pataki would take over for Cheney as Vice President at the Republican National Convention, because:
The main reason to dump Cheney has nothing to do with Haliburton, Joe Wilson or the 9-11 Commission report. It's a matter of succession; there is no chance in hell or Crawford that the weak-hearted, hard-speaking Cheney can be the nominee in 2008.
Whelp. I was wrong then for two reasons: the timing and the reason.
Because if I end up being right, just off by a few years, the main reason will have to do with Joe Wilson.
