Smoking Gun Memo Part Deux
First there was the Downing Street Memo! Now there is this memo. Which was supposedly the source of the information regarding Valerie Wilson. This memo was supposedly read on Air Force one en route to Africa. Among those aboard were Rove, Libby and most everyone else in the White House staff including Colin Powell and the President! So what did the memo highlight? WHy is it perhaps a smoking gun? I don;t know but Pincus et allia wrote:
"A classified State Department memorandum central to a federal leak investigation contained information about CIA officer Valerie Plame in a paragraph marked '(S)' for secret, a clear indication that any Bush administration official who read it should have been aware the information was classified, according to current and former government officials."
Honestly I think we have a new deep throat if they are sharing these memos with Pincus and friends. I think that Deep Throat is Colin Powell. He's on the ouside, he's lookin' in, he can see through them, see their true colors. Err, eh, you see Colin was forced to lie to the UN, that pretty much took him out of contention for any future in politics because the way this war is being
So I think the sources which are gonna be talking about this memo and any other memos that talk about Rovegate, will be none other than Colin Powell.
That's my theory.
But don't let it distract you. This memo is perhaps the source of the original information on Valerie Plame. The info referring to Valerie was marked S for secret, which anyone with classified clearance is supposed to know that S is CIA speak for DON"T TELL ANYBODY WITHOUT CLEARANCE ABOUT THIS!
