Today we're giving you a chance to clear your name. We're asking you and tens of thousands of other MoveOn members to sign an affidavit affirming that you didn't leak the identity of an undercover CIA agent to the press last July.
President Bush told the press on Tuesday that he doesn't "have any idea" whether the senior administration officials who blew a CIA operative's cover will ever be found. But if he just asked his staff to sign a legally binding affidavit confirming that they weren't involved, and referred anyone who wouldn't to the FBI, it's possible he could flush out the perpetrators in a day. To date, the President hasn't even discussed this matter with his staff.
We've already done the President's homework for him by writing the affidavit. Now let's show him how easy it is for innocent people to legally declare their innocence. You can sign the affidavit and send it to the President in under a minute by going to: http://moveon.org/affidavit/?id=-1904448-YaR267IiNi3dKypXW_SWBg
On Sunday, Reuters reported that Valerie Plame, the CIA agent whose cover was blown "was probably the single highest target of any possible terrorist organization or hostile intelligence service that might want to do damage," according to a former senior CIA official. It's now clear that the leakers in the White House are willing to put national security and the lives of CIA operatives in danger for their own ends. But President Bush seems unconcerned -- he hasn't even looked into who it might be.
Here are a few quotes from the Bush Administration that give some contrast to the task of finding the leakers.
On finding Osama Bin Laden in Central Asia: "We're going to hunt them down one at a time. . . it doesn't matter where they hide, as we work with our friends we will find them and bring them to justice." --President George W. Bush, 11/22/02
On finding Saddam Hussein in the Mideast: "We are continuing the pursuit and it's a matter of time before [Saddam] is found and brought to justice." --White House spokesman McClellan, 9/17/03
On finding the leaker in the close confines of the White House: "I don't know if we're going to find out the senior administration official. I don't have any idea." --President George W. Bush, 10/7/03
well i have been encouraging spammeisters to put me on ignore for years...with your seven recommendations on that post, let's hope they aren't just spamming the board and will take your advice...by the way since you have created another alias i will have to put that one on ignore too...i really don't want to read any messages from people i have on ignore, so once again i would appreciate people not creating aliases and of course i and many on the board will appreciate many putting me on ignore...and of course the bulge will appreciate your help in discovering the traitor in his administration...for some reason he can't do it even though there are only a handful of individuals that it could be...could treason be the public policy standard in the white house...unfortunately yes...we really have reached a new low in this country...
Why would anyone expect shrub to propose such a thing? I mean, he's never told the truth BEFORE!
WATCH FRONTLINE TONIGHT to see how the shrub administration is continuing to sink in the quicksand of the Middle East. And how U.S. Taxpayers are going to have to pay for it, as shrub continues to undermine our Democracy.
