“Loyal Bushie” Judge Dismisses Valerie Plame’s Lawsuit
Valerie Plame risked her life to stop terrorists from getting WMD’s and murdering innocent Americans. But when her husband Joe Wilson dared to tell the truth about Bush’s pre-war lies, Karl Rove declared her “fair game” and conspired with Dick Cheney and Scooter Libby to expose her identity, destroy her career, and endanger the lives of everyone she worked with to protect us.
Valerie Plame sued Cheney, Libby, and Rove. But of course the case went before a “loyal Bushie” judge named John D. Bates, who made his “bones” with the Bushies as a Whitewater prosecutor under Ken Starr. Bush appointed Bates as a Federal judge in 2001, and a year later he dismissed the GAO lawsuit demanding Cheney’s Energy Task Force documents. In 2006, Chief Justice John Roberts put Bates on the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court to turn a blind eye to Bush’s illegal wiretapping of millions of Americans.
Today Bates dismissed Plame’s lawsuit by claiming the conspiracy against Wilson was “unsavory” but “within the scope of [their] duties.”
What Cheney, Libby, and Rove did wasn’t unsavory – by shutting down a crucial anti-terrorist network, endangering the lives of everyone involved, and undermining the security of the United States, they committed treason.
Valerie Plame will never get justice – and our nation will never be safe – by relying on the Bush-controlled Federal courts. It is way past time for Congress to Impeach Dick Cheney.
