Olbermann KO's Karl Rove!

Keith Olbermann has a great write up on Karl Rove & why he needs to be kicked out of the WH.

I'll let you read up the article but I'd like to pose a question (mine):


In light of the terror attacks in London, doesn't Karl Rove's sabatoge for political gains of a secret agent who is part of our defense AGAINST such terrorist become particularly alarming, hypocritical & dangerous?



I don't want to judge Karl Rove on a political basis.  If you are only supporting (or attacking) him b/c of his politics, THEN YOU ARE COMPLETELY MISSING THE PICTURE.

Kossacks, I ask that we NOT politicize this b/c that will diminish the seriousness of the crime. This is something ALL AMERICAN can agree on.

So let's approach this strictly from an apoltical - perhaps even conservative - view.

Karl Rove stated just 2 weeks back

"Liberals saw the savagery of the 9/11 attacks and wanted to prepare indictments and offer therapy and understanding for our attackers."

Conservatives, he said, "saw the savagery of 9/11 and the attacks and prepared for war."


Really, Karl?  Well, if that's how you feel, then well I guess you're entitled to say 1/2 the country is soft on terrorism.


But how did it HELP the war on terror to attack one of your agent (Valerie Plame) who tracks these terrorists??


Also, how helpful was it to undercut your British allies as they were nearing in on al Queda suspects last year - again for political gains.  This time it was to help with Bush's 2004 re-election.


The British had to scramble to catch 12 men prematurely before they were able to capture more evidence.  (link?)  


Could these people have been involved in these attacks?  Did the sabatoge of the British investigation by the WH keep the Brits from stopping the London attacks?  Or is there another one on the way??


WHO KNOWS!  We may never.  The point is that we lost an opportunity & we put ourselves in more danger - CORRECTION - YOU put is more danger ALL b/c of political gain!


Sen. John Kerry was right.  


Sen. John Kerry -Mass., said in a floor speech that Bush should at the very least exact an apology from his political adviser. "Frankly, he should fire him," Kerry said.


Yes, Bush should apologize.  But not just to Democrats.  He needs to apologize to the American people b/c HIS White House today threatened the security of the country & of other countries (London) when HIS White House advisor leaked the name of our spies who are our first line of attack in the "War on Terror".


In the line of defense against terror, it will be our HUMAN INTELLIGENCE (spies) that will ultimately warn us of impending attacks & prevent 9/11 & London & Madrid from happening again.


If a party WHATEVER PARTY starts compromising our security b/c of politics, then that party is treasonous & dangerous to our security.


To those conservatives out there who love our country, ask yourself this question.  Would you defend this man if he was a Democrat?  It would be as wrong to do so as to attack ONLY b/c he's a Republican.


KARL ROVE NEEDS TO NOT ONLY APOLOGIZE BUT HE NEEDS TO GO TO JAIL - AND NOT B/C OF HIS POLITICS BUT B/C HE PLACED POLITICS ABOVE THE SAFETY OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.
