[[Nonsense, said a Democratic aide, who responded to Hoekstra's charge on condition of anonymity.

The aide said President Barack Obama has long said low-level intelligence officers won't be prosecuted]]

I'll say it again, drawing from Geraghty:

"All statements by Barack Obama come with an expiration date. All of them."

"Nonsense...Obama said..." is as reassuring as a promise as "I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky." is as a denial.

What Obama says today will quickly be reversed tomorrow, I guarantee it. Ultimately his final word on any issue is a resounding"We won the election."

Somewhere, yesterday, I read that Obama was still mulling releasing photos.

Perhaps it was an article about his meeting with human rights organizations.

"The aide said President Barack Obama has long said low-level intelligence officers won't be prosecuted, making Hoekstra's claim false."

Does that dumb son of a bitch think the only way your morale can be lowered is by the threat of prosecution?

"We cannot have an intelligence community that covers up what it does and then lies to Congress."

That’s what Pete Hoekstra said in 2008 when the CIA lied its ass off about blowing the missionaries out of the sky in Peru.

No, Martin, that was the genius of Rand Beers, state department flak and wannabe Kerry administration factotum, they had to cover for his flawed interdiction policy.

or when they lied about Plame being covert. Now that was a CIA LIE.

"Perhaps it was an article about his meeting with human rights organizations."

From Gateway Pundit.

"Speaking to human rights officials on Wednesday, the president also left the door open for the future release of detainee abuse photos, saying that his administration's current opposition to the release was dictated by immediate concern over the complications it could cause to America's mission in Afghanistan.

In an interview with the Huffington Post, Massimino detailed what she described as a "lively and detailed and serious" discussion on some of the days most vexing national security issues. Over the course of roughly an hour and fifteen minutes, Obama, along with Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, Attorney General Eric Holder, advisers Valerie Jarrett and David Axelrod, foreign policy hand Dennis McDonough, and counter-terrorism chief John Brennan, held court with a group of academics, as well as officials with the ACLU, Human Rights Watch, and the Center for Constitutional Rights."

I wonder why they didn't invite CAIR and a few others, who are always so concerned about Human Rights, as long as they are not American Human Rights.

Was there anyone at the meeting representing us?

[[Was there anyone at the meeting representing us?]]

Of course not, pagar. We're taxpayers {cash cows} not humans....

The president seems concerned that he is losing his base support.

"Lie to me" comes to mind.

Martin

The CIA didn't lie about Plame.

They've only lied about the things that have made Democrats look bad.
