Outing a CIA Station Chief??? Nice Try but…

By Craig Andresen on May 28, 2014 at 6:01 am

Remember Valerie Plame? The “covert” CIA agent that liberals are so SURE was outed by Dick Cheney and Scooter Libby? Liberals, when losing any foreign policy argument continue to bring that up to this very day because, liberals like to ignore the facts.

Far be it for me to try and confuse liberals WITH the facts.

Okay…not so far be it.

Here are the facts regarding the outing of Plame…

First of all…Valerie Plame was NOT a covert agent. She was, in fact, very well known as a CIA agent working on nuclear counterproliferation.

Her “outing” wasn’t outing at all and neither Libby nor Cheney had a single thing to do with it.

It was, in fact, Richard Armitage, then the Deputy Secretary of State who was giving background to Bob Novak who was, at the time, writing a column regarding the Bush 2003 State of the Union speech and it was Novak who asked, off handedly, why it was that Joseph Wilson, a liberal and harsh critic of Bush 43 had been sent to Niger by the CIA to investigate what Bush had referred to as Iraq’s intention to purchase yellowcake uranium FROM Niger.

Armitage responded…“you know his wife works at the CIA, and she suggested that he be sent to Niger.”

Novak connected the dots using a ‘Who’s Who” and Wilson’s own bio and wrote about it in his column.

Those are the facts…not conjecture as Armitage himself later confirmed Novak’s version of the meeting but liberals, as they are all too eager to do, still hold up Scooter Libby and Cheney as the culprets in outing the non covert Plame and always point to the fact that Libby was convicted of it.

That also is a fabricated bending of the truth as Libby was NOT convicted of outing Plame…

SICK: Leprosy On The Rise In Los Angeles 

Ahh, the joys of open borders and Democrat leadership.

California is not just a public toilet but now there is evidence that leprosy is on the rise in Los Angeles County.

Barack Obama changed US law in 2016 and allowed immigrants with blistering STDs and leprosy to migrate to the US.

Medscape reported:

Leprosy, also known as Hansen’s disease, is rarely seen in the United States, but cases continue to emerge in Los Angeles County, a new report says.

“Hansen’s disease still exists, and we need to educate medical students and physicians,” coauthor Dr. Maria Teresa Ochoa from Keck Medical Center of the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, told Reuters Health by email.

Dr. Ochoa and colleagues identified 187 patients with the disease in a review of medical records from their leprosy clinic spanning 1973 to 2018. Most patients were Latino, originating from Mexico, and they experienced a median delay in diagnosis of more than three years, the team reports JAMA Dermatology, online August 7.

Multibacillary leprosy (MB) cases outnumbered paucibacillary leprosy (PB) cases by nearly eight to one (88.6% vs. 11.4%, respectively), and Latino patients were more likely than non-Latino patients to have MB, as were patients from Central or South America (versus other regions).

Most patients (80.7%) received multidrug therapy, and most (92.6%) received antibiotics for more than two years, especially if they had MB.

Only about half of patients (56.7%) had World Health Organization (WHO) grade 0 disability (no signs or symptoms suggestive of leprosy or disability) at the one-year follow-up, whereas 16.0% had grade 1 disability (loss of protective sensation) and 26.2% had grade 2 disability (visible deformity) at the last follow-up.

Among the patients who lost protective sensation, 87.7% (50/57) did not regain it following therapy.
