Plamegates real liar

[Imported from Whale Oil Beef Hooked on Blogger]

La Times commentary puts the boot in Plames husband Joseph C. Wilson IV. (Anyone with a middle initial and a full stop as well as Roman numerals after his name has to be a pompous ass for sure)

By 2003, Plame had apparently been working in Langley, Va., for at least six years, which means that, mystery of mysteries, the vice president’s chief of staff was indicted for covering up something that wasn’t a crime.

Making the best of a weak hand, Democrats argued that the case was not about petty-ante perjury but, as Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid put it, “about how the Bush White House manufactured and manipulated intelligence in order to bolster its case for the war in Iraq and to discredit anyone who dared to challenge the president.” The problem here is that the one undisputed liar in this whole sordid affair doesn’t work for the administration. In his attempts to turn his wife into an antiwar martyr, Joseph C. Wilson IV has retailed more whoppers than Burger King.

There is then a long list of Wilsons lies and obfuscations. Too long to print here, then the money line.

So much for the lies that led to war. What we’re left with is the lies that led to the antiwar movement. Good thing for Wilson and his pals that deceiving the press and the public isn’t a crime.
