I thought the most recent “Largest Security Breach in U.S. History” was the treasonous outing of CIA agent Valerie Plame Wilson by top Republicans officials in the previous GW Bush administration in 2003, with former VP Dick Cheney apparently the ringleader behind this treasonous act?
Oh wait, we’ll never know how big this security breach really was because the CIA’s after-incident damage-assessment report was buried, as if it was video tapes of Bush administration-authorized torture sessions, as if it was Zelikow’s “torture is illegal” memo, as if it were FBI and CIA investigations and reports about Saudi-run al Qaeda terrorist cells operating in the U.S. before the 9/11 attacks (Sarasota FL, for instance).
The excellent movie “Fair Game” alludes to how extensive the national security breach really was following the blowing of Valerie Plame Wilson’s covert cover, but only if we ever see the CIA’s after-incident damage-assessment report will we finally know what damage was done to national security and how many people died, whether fellow CIA agents of Mrs. Wilson or her foreign contacts overseas.
I’ll put it bluntly. What Republicans and the Bush administration did over eight long torturous years WAS the biggest national security breach in American history, making what Bradley Manning is accused of doing pale in comparison. But he’s in prison while all the Bush Republicans have gotten away with all the crimes they committed. Oh well, I guess Justice is blind, but I hadn’t realized that conservatives and especially Republicans had poked her eyes out.
