McClellan’s Confessions

Proof that the Iraq War is going well doesn’t come from the good news on the ground, or the accounts of the troops and Iraqi Government, it comes from the fact that the MSM has decided to resurrect the long-dead Plame issue, this time with former Press Secretary Scott McClellan levying the charges.  So, now too, McClellan believed that he was misled by the Bush Administration, who allegedly pushed McClellan into a false sense of reassurance through “five administration officials,” who surprisingly don’t include Bush or Cheney this time.

Misled, Scott?  If your conscience was so miffed by all of this, you should have raised questions at the time or sometime within the next year-and-a-half you were still Press Secretary– that would add more leverage to your claims and would have really put pressure on the Administration at a critical time.  But, no, after Libby’s been convicted and commuted (not for leaking anything, but having a normal memory), after it is now common knowledge that Wilson was the one misleading everybody, and after Richard Armitage was fingered as Novak’s leaky source, the issue is once again resurrected in a fashion that does not reveal anything new, but rather puts the issue in the news once again.  Rush used to say that for Libs it’s not about the nature of the evidence, but rather the seriousness of the charge.  That sentiment completely summarizes the Plame story from the start and McClellan’s new fuel on an old fire.
