Voice of the White House July 2, 2007
TBR News.org – July 2, 2007
“The media is jabbering away about the Libby pardon, criticizing the Head Chimpanzee for flouting the law.
Let’s study why he did such a politically stupid thing. At one time, Libby was Vice President Dick Cheney's Chief of Staff. He was the chief pro-Israel Jewish advisor to Cheney, which helps explains why Cheney was so determined to invade Iraq. Libby has been a longtime associate of Wolfowitz and was also a lawyer for convicted felon and Israeli spy Mark Rich, whom Clinton pardoned in his last days as president.
Why did Bush pardon Libby? Simply because Libby was a man who knew too much.
He was designated to take the fall for Cheney on the Plame business but drew the line at jail time. Libby saw to it that the brass in the White House knew that if he had to go to prison, he would sing like an opera star at La Scala and like a good singer, he would certainly bring down the house.
What would Libby talk about? Well, the plans to institute official torture cooked up by Cheney and eagerly approved by Bush. Cheney’s obscene rake-offs from the Halliburton scams, serious scandals about Gannon’s nocturnal visits to the White House and who he was fudge-packing, Karl Rove’s chronic blackmail of anyone who got in Bush’s way, Bush and Cheney’s outspoken contempt for blacks and their obedience to Israeli demands, Cheney’s determination to establish Iraq as a permanent forward military base to secure Iraqi oil for the US and his friends and serve as a launching pad for attacks on Israeli’s enemies, plans to oust Putin and regain control over Russian oil and gas fields, deliberately falsified “terror alerts” and, worse of all, knowingly launching an attack on Iraq using officially falsified CIA reports.
How many have died because of these two evil men? Libby knows and that’s why dear old Scooter, convicted of several serious felonies, goes free. It sure ain’t compassion because George has a heart the size of a mustard seed and has strong sadistic tendencies. Maybe Libby would tell them about the movies George and his evil friends used to watch upstairs in the private quarters showing terrible tortures at Gitmo and in Iraq.
Believe me, these are very sick people who should be in a nice jail of their own and not dictating to the American people and killing their sons.”
