Distractions and Talking Points
Thankfully, the age of treating CIA operatives as political pawns is coming to an end. Check out this letter signed by ten former CIA analysts, and addressed to the U.S. Senate. The message is loud and clear - the CIA will not tolerate the RNC and their talking points, or the partisan attacks on Wilson and Plame.
The supreme court nomination of John Roberts is bound to cause a media hailstorm. The republican talking heads continually state that they do not want an activist judge in the Supreme Court, yet the man Bush nominated is an extreme partisan. I have read that this man wants to strike down Roe v. Wade ("Wrongly Decided") and affirmative action laws, and is reflexively anti-environment. I'm somewhat torn on this - we simply cannot allow the Bush Administration to appoint this man without a fight, but we also cannot allow the media or the public at large to lose their focus on the crimes inside the Whitehouse. Thankfully, the CIA is on our side on this one.
