Eat At Joes

Just a regular Joe who is angry that the USA, the country he loves, is being corrupted and damaged from within and trying to tell his fellow Americans the other half of the story that they don’t get on the TV News.

Washington Post Continues to Lie to Readers About CIA Agent Betrayed by Rove and Others in Bush Administration - TV News Does Same!

The Washington Post continues to tell the American people three lies about the Bush Admin outing of a CIA agent. Lie 1: Joe Wilson’s trip to Niger strengthened the Bush Admin’s clam that Iraq tied to buy Uranium. Lie 2: Wilson’s wife was the one who decided he go to Niger to investigate the WMD issue. Lie 3: Rove was just trying to correct Wilson’s alleged claim that Cheney had sent him, and he may have accidentally outed Wilson’s wife as an undercover CIA agent. All three are untrue as shown in this analysis. The third one is an especially low blow since Wilson didn’t claim this. In his editorial that predated Rove’s leaks to reporters he said that "agency officials" asked him to travel to Niger in response to questions posed by Cheney regarding the Niger allegation. The CIA told him that this was to follow up on questions made by Cheney’s office. Wilson never claimed Cheney sent him, but the Corporate-Owned Media keeps saying otherwise.

From Wilson's July 6, 2003, op-ed:

In February 2002, I was informed by officials at the Central Intelligence Agency that Vice President Dick Cheney's office had questions about a particular intelligence report. While I never saw the report, I was told that it referred to a memorandum of agreement that documented the sale of uranium yellowcake -- a form of lightly processed ore -- by Niger to Iraq in the late 1990's. The agency officials asked if I would travel to Niger to check out the story so they could provide a response to the vice president's office.

From the Senate intelligence report:

Officials from the CIA's DO [Directorate of Operations] Counterproliferation Division (CPD) told Committee staff that in response to question's from the Vice-President's office and the Departments of State and Defense on the alleged Iraq-Uranium deal, CPD officials discussed ways to obtain additional information. [REDACTED] who could make immediate inquiries into the reporting, CPD decided to contact a former ambassador to Gabon [Wilson] who had a posting early in his career in Niger.

So Wilson’s claim matches the CIA’s testimony under oath before the Senate. Rove’s claim contradicts it. The Corporate-Owned Media continue to air Rove’s already disproved claims rather than Wilson’s proved ones. The televised news from ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN and Fox News are even more one-sided in favor of Rove’s lies. Any more evidence needed to show that the Corporations that own ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN and Fox News aren’t interested in telling the American People the truth?
