    McClellan book admits wrongdoing in Plamegate

    "The most powerful leader in the world had called upon me to speak on his behalf and help restore credibility he lost amid the failure to find weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. So I stood at the White house briefing room podium in front of the glare of the klieg lights for the better part of two weeks and publicly exonerated two of the senior-most aides in the White House: Karl Rove and Scooter Libby.

    "There was one problem. It was not true.

    "I had unknowingly passed along false information. And five of the highest ranking officials in the administration were involved in my doing so: Rove, Libby, the vice President, the President's chief of staff, and the president himself."

    all the title says is "McClellan book admits wrongdoing in Plamegate"

    the wrong doing was McClellan's

    and there is no article it's an excerpt from a book due to publish April of next year.

    Yep. So we'll know what Mr. McClellan's viewpoint on events was then. As always, one man's view does not equal truth per se, but it could be an interesting read nonetheless.

    the key here is Cons can't attack this man's credibility (although they will try)

    the guy was the White House press secretary, you don't get that job with a liberal agenda

    Not one post from the typical rightwing posters will acknowledge the topic.

    Thats a bit naive, don't you think?

    None of us know what anomosity, bitterness or anger may have developed between McClellan and other White House Staffers during his time there. It's certainly possible (not saying probably) that an angry bitter McClellan might be vindictive in some post-employment book, both as a way to get back at his employers, and to bank some seriosu cash in what you must admit is a very Anti-Bush political environment.

    So yes, they can (and yes they will) attack his credabillity, if he is overly criticial on anything they wish to be defensive on. Bank on it.

    What you are saying makes a lot of sense, but it would make you wonder if that is the case with him and there has been a lot of others doing the same, wouldn't that mean there is a strong pattern. Is that pattern warranted?

    Bush himself could come out and say there was wrongdoing, and the neocons on here would still find a way to spin it into a right vs. left or liar joe debate.

    A Pattern? Like a pattern that Bushy is a crappy Boss, and crappy President?

    Don't think we need a pattern to prove THAT. Thats been well proven already I would say.

    Who's spinning? What have I said is inaccurate?

    So it turns out W was lying about this, too. What a shocker.

    Also turns out Fitzgerald really was part of covering the whole thing up by not pursuing it further.

    McClellan Revelations: Bush Was A Passively Involved “Liar In Chief”(video)

    Tonight on Countdown, Keith Olbermann talked to MSNBC’s David Shuster about revelations from former White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan’s new book, that President Bush, Dick Cheney and Karl Rove were directly involved in deceiving the American people about their roles in outing covert CIA operative, Valerie Plame. Anyone paying attention knew these allegations to be true all along, but as you would expect, Olbermann and Shuster nail it.

    [url]http://www.crooksandliars.com/2007/11/20/olbermann-on-mcclellan-revelations-bush-was-a-passively-involved-liar-in-chief/[/url]

    Keith also spoke with John Dean (video links below) about the resurrected scandal and brought up some more than interesting points. The Plame leak investigation is still ongoing, Patrick Fitzgerald never formally closed it. Dean suggests that there is a real possibility that these allegations open the door to a possible conspiracy to defraud the government charge and if Fitzgerald found enough evidence to proceed with his investigation, he could do so at any time. We can only hope…

    So what is McClellan saying?
    The President, Vice President, Card, Libby and Rove, in one way or another, passed information to Armitage about Plame? Then denied having passed that information.
