RE: DISMISSAL OF WILSON/PLAME DISCLOSURE CASE – SUMMARY
REF: Valerie Plame Wilson et al v. I. Lewis Libby, et al.
As you are no doubt aware, last week Judge John D. Bates of the federal district court in WDC dismissed the Wilson case. While you operate overseas in a cover capacity and risk your life and that of your family members in various Third World “armpits” around the globe, please know that we here in WDC are fighting for you. Our battle here in Washington is with a White House that thinks it is above the law and a federal bureaucracy and national media that backs them up. None of the key players in Office of the President or Vice President have any clandestine experience. In fact, hardly any have even a military background. We make this point to make sure you are aware of what we here are up against.
Simply put, we are under attack from all quarters from very effective morons that can’t get their arms around the covert intelligence collection process. The examples are endless. We all know that we were right on with our assessments on Iraq, yet those portions of our product that contradicted White House policy were suppressed and the facially supportive sections declassified and released to the public. The Bozos trying to play spy at the Pentagon, like Doug Feith, were allowed to get away with the largest swindle of American public opinion we can remember. And we have recently been confronted by another “useful idiot” of the conservative right-wing nuts, Rowan Scarborough and his book “America’s Enemies Within the CIA,” who questions our patriotism.
It is not a good day to risk your life for our country. But you probably already know that. And you have more than a full understanding of the countless misperceptions of our work. After all, many of you have lived these events, not from the comfort of your living room in the good ole US of A. But you are as resilient as you are committed to this country and therefore can take yet another blow from your own government.
First Amendment? No. Equal Protection? No. Due Process? No. Now some of you may interpret this as a CIA undercover officer having no more rights than the detainees of Guantanamo and other facilities. That is absolutely not the case. Let me make a number of clear distinctions as to why this is not so...
...(If any portion of this message appears garbled please see your systems administrator).
It’s been repeated throughout history that laws are like a spiders’ web, which may catch small mosquitoes but lets wasps and hornets break through. This is nothing new and these times will pass.
Finally, let’s redouble our efforts in our fight to protect this country and the cherished constitutional principles upon which it was founded.
Good luck and God speed.
FIELD RECOMMENDATION NOTE: WHILE THE REPUBLICANS CONTROL THE WHITE HOUSE, KEEP TWO HANDS OVER IT.
