The rush to condemn Robert Novak illustrates the underlying agenda of the mainstream media. The “Prince
of Darkness” is one of the very few national syndicated columnists that understands the nature of our Republic and has
the guts to defend it. Shame on a society that turns on such a champion, who has the courage to tell the truth, as it blabbers
establishment nonsense and endless apologies for the crooks that permeate the praetorian guard. When the cat calls come -
as reported by Howard Kurtz in the Washington Post - from the likes of the Nation’s writer David Corn called the leak a "thuggish
act," New York Times columnist Paul Krugman called it a "criminal act." and the depraved Sen. Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.)
is mortified beyond description, you know that the diversion is under way.
Novak, citing "two senior administration officials," wrote in July that Valerie Plame was an undercover operative
for the Central Intelligence Agency specializing in weapons of mass destruction. She was the wife of Joseph C. Wilson IV,
a former United States diplomat. The New York Times alleges that Wilson claims that his public assertions that President Bush had exaggerated the threat of any
Iraqi weapons of mass destruction to help justify the war to topple Saddam Hussein, was the motivation for leaking the name
of his wife.
What the media is spinning and wants you to swallow is that a “spook” deserves the secret protection
of their identity. Woe is me, even when exposing the facts about a corrupt administration, we are supposed to give a pass
to a failed sycophant for the Agency. While whistle blowers are often heroes, CIA stooges are never patriots.
The relevant disclosure is not about palace intrigue and whether Karl Rove dropped a dime, it’s about
the demented distortion that a spy babe, who could have been whacked, is a victim! Time to face the dirty little secret that
most Americans are too timid to confront. CIA retainers exist to protect the Agency, not the nation. Decades of immunity for
systemic criminal act is offical policy. So why should regular folks care when a protected operative loses their selective
Heroine or heroin trafficker, you can’t be the former working as an undercover agent, when that organization
runs the dope racket. So please; don’t plead for any tears when one passes . . . Abused Americans are sick and tired
of the violin, we want justice.
So what you will get is a witch hunt attacking the journalistic ethic of Novak, while the flow of poppies
are shipped under the shield of the ultimate family syndicate. Hypocrisy is too generous a term. Treason doesn’t go
far enough. Pure contrived brazen lies is the formula for keeping the ignorant masses saluting the Helm’s, Colby’s
and Casey’s of the subrosa regime. Dulles airport wasn’t named after a saint, brother Allen knew where the bodies
were buried. William Francis Buckley wasn’t on a mission of mercy in Calcutta for Mother Theresa. Wild Bill Donovan
might have a legacy that some could justify, but can any sane American exonerate the conduct of the Intelligence Community
defending their own evil empire?
But a law was broken, someone needs to pay! Covert agents are the privileged wards of Congress, so goes the
line . . . Reality is that the elected representative is more a hostage to blackmail and assassination than a benefactor of
Mena direct flights. Until citizens grow the genitals, fit for a nation of liberty defenders, the company will run the scheme.
No one wears a white hat in this twisted game of illusion. Leaks, stonewalls, counter charges, plausable deniability and endless
subterfuge, all in the name of national security are insults to those who retain common sense.
Target Novak as the poster boy for more OJ type amusement. Gary Condit was protected by one of the good old
boys. Remember this one? Why isn't Dick Gephardt agreeing to have Gary Condit removed from the intelligence committee? It should be obvious that one must be lacking in any aptitude or acumen
to be assigned to this august assemblage! Always the collegial shield of closing ranks around a fellow legislator takes preference
over restoring confidence in protecting the Nation's secrets.
Now we are told that a national outrage needs to be expressed. How dare that Wilson go public to avenge putting
his wife at risk! Well, when will all those back room secret agents quit the drill? Infighting in nothing new in the realm
of power politics. Heads are routinely lost, so when one drops off that spills a little blood, let the staff in the big house
National Security has come to mean guarding the criminals at the cost of your safety. Sacrifices to preserve
the illicit order are continually necessary to keep the machination intact. Novak is my hero; a prince of darkness, who discloses the bare reality of doom in order to shine the dawn of light.
During an address at Fisk Hall before students and Evanston Illinois residents, he charmed the audience with this gem: "I
believe if you give the unadulterated dog food, people will gag on it". This is one of those time when you should be puking
. . .
