So Wow... They Outed A CIA Asset For Buckage

Ok so the article says

The FBI has determined that financial gain, not an effort to influence U.S. policy, was behind the forged documents that the Bush administration used to bolster its prewar claim that Iraq sought uranium ore in Niger.
The FBI's investigation began after questions were raised about a brief portion of President Bush's January 2003 State of the Union speech when he said that Iraq was pursuing the uranium ore, part of his argument to justify the coming invasion of Iraq.
The Niger claim also is at the center of the CIA leak investigation that led to the indictment last week of Vice President Richard Cheney's former chief of staff, I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby.

Boy that has got to make Scooter Libby and Karl Rove feel so much better that americans now have the big news.

Some intrepid entrepreneur wanted to show the wonders of the free market system, you know, the same free market system that won the cold war, was gonna be able to do it all again...

Ah yes... What exactly is the Excuse for getting MY TRIBE KILLED, MAIMED AND WOUNDED so that the Victims of ChickenHawk Angst can go on trying to tell me all about the Patriotism that I should have....

Would this be the wrong moment to note that some of us were very pleased to learn that our people made it out of Kabul in front of the Soviet Tanks - back when americans were jerking themselves off that they could have won the vietnam thing if it had not been for the fact that HanoiJane sat on an NVA AAA piece and the month after that George W. Bush decide that he would not report for his physical... Ah yes.... a world of wonder that the VICTIMS OF CHICKENHAWK ANGST are still missing out on... since, well gosh, they just can't even get into the game enough to become high paid technical consultants working in the super
sekret CIA special torture facilities.

Now trust me, I can understand that going in as a mere grunt would be way too beneath the real ProWarTypes who have always wanted to re-win that whole vietnam thing, and would really get engaged, if ever there were another attack on the World Trade Center....

So, Uh, what IS it going to take americans to stop sitting on their faces and hoping that no one notices...
