I have to hand it to Michelle Malkin on this one and on two counts at that. First for reporting this travesty of modern day liberal vilification and criminal conduct and secondly for scoring a direct hit on the reality of what is actually at play here.
Last week, the Washington Post reported on a new Justice Department inquiry into photographs of undercover CIA officials and other intelligence personnel taken by ACLU-sponsored researchers assisting the defense team of Guantanamo Bay detainees. According to the report, the pictures of covert American CIA officers – “in some cases surreptitiously taken outside their homes” – were shown to jihad suspects tied to the 9/11 attacks in order to identify the interrogators.
Yep, you read it right, the ACLU hired their own covert ops to out present CIA operatives (by photographing them), so that they could expose these CIA undercover agents to public ridicule in the media and to identify them to known terrorists being held at Guantanamo, as they defend the same jihadist terrorist as if they possess US constitutional right! Meanwhile, they also identified them to all the other terrorists in the world bent on destroying this country.
What was that gals name? Give me a minute it's coming back to me. (help me Michelle!)
ACLU undertook the so-called “John Adams Project” with the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers – last seen crusading for convicted jihadi assistant Lynne Stewart. She’s the far Left lawyer who helped jailed 1993 World Trade Center bombing/NY landmark bombing plot mastermind Omar Abdel-Rahman smuggle coded messages of Islamic violence from the imprisoned sheik to outside followers in violation of an explicit pledge to abide by her client’s court-ordered isolation.
Yep, the ACLU was just practicing that tried and true comic book reality of truth, justice and the American way right?
What the hell was that gal's name! I know I have it right here on the tip of my tongue! (help me out here Michelle!)
And then they showed the images to suspected al Qaeda operatives implicated in murdering 3,000 innocent men, women, and children on American soil.
You should have the gist of it now, so do go and visit Michelle Malkin's blog and read the entire piece. Absolutely freaking amazing! How could conduct like this be tolerated in America today? It's beyond belief. It is beyond insidious, it is beyond something that I can even be incredulous over! The truth is, it is conduct that simply is not covered by any word or group of words in the English language that I am aware of.
There simply isn't a single word or phrase or combination of phrases that adequately expresses what I see as nothing short of treasonous crimes committed by the ACLU. But not even the word treason approaches what has been done here IMO.
WHAT IS THAT WOMAN'S NAME!
Wait a minute! Eureka! I have it now! Went back through Michelle's blog and there it was! "Valerie Plame!" Yeah that's it! That's the ticket! It's all coming back to me now!
So let's cut to the chase and get to the bottom line.
This nation endured a two year federal investigation into the Valerie Plame affair and all manner of wailing and gnashing of teeth by democrats and liberals, (every step of the way). And all for the supposed outing of an undercover CIA operative (Valerie Plame). Yet in the end, it was proven that everyone who was suspected and accused of the alleged crime? Had absolutely nothing to do with it. It was also proven to be former Asst. Sec/State Richard Armitage who gave Plame's name to Robert Novak where it was first revealed to the public.
As it was also revealed that allegations of Valerie Plame being an undercover operative were completely false and fabricated. She was nothing more than a mid level middle east analyst at the agency and the only reason she became an issue, is because she successfully lobbied her bosses at CIA, to allow her husband a former US ambassador, to travel to Africa as a CIA operative. And for what reason? none other than to attempt to obtain evidence that could refute the Bush administrations assertions of Iraq's attempts to buy yellow cake uranium from Africa, in order to build a nuclear program in Iraq.
Yet here we have an organization (the ACLU) that has literally compromised the identities of dozen of real CIA undercover CIA operatives? And hardly a notice what so ever from the loyal left wing media. The same media that sunk it's teeth into the Plame affair as if they had found Watergate II.
Someone needs to be prosecuted for this crap IMO and a bunch of people need to go to prison over it IMO.
Audacity is another word that comes to mind that simply fails to cover what has been done here.
