Robert Novak Waffles On CIA Objections To Outing Valerie Plame

real jordan shoes cheap Columnist Robert Novak, the man who outed Valerie Plame as a CIA agent, appeared on Hannity Colmes last night (7/12/06) to discuss his “tell all” column that actually told very little about the Plame incident.

cheap jordans 9.5 Novak said that one of his cheap jordans china confirming sources was Bill Harlow of the CIA. According to Novak, Harlow was too low key to convince Novak not to publish Plame’s identiy. “My conception is that Mr. intelligence official familiar with the matter told The Associated cheap jordans free shipping Press that Harlow repeatedly tried to talk Novak out of running the information about Plame and that Harlow’s efforts did not in any way constitute confirming Plame’s CIA identity.” cheap jordans 9.5

cheap jordans women’s shoes Funny how Hannity who can’t stop foaming at the mouth about how the New York Times should have acceded to the government’s request not to print a story had no problem with Novak doing the same thing. cheap jordans women’s shoes

new cheap jordans for sale Alan Colmes questioned Novak further about the cheap jordans for sale efforts of the CIA to stop him from publicizing Plame’s identity. “You said that Bill Harlow asked you not to go with this. Are there others who urged you ‘don’t go with this story, don’t print it, don’t use the name, don’t talk about Valerie Plame.’ Why didn’t you listen to them, if that’s the case?” new cheap jordans for sale

If he had said to me at any time that she was, her life was in danger, she was involved in undercover activities, I would not have written it. He never said that to me. Never made any such statement.” In other words, Novak was saying the CIA doth protest too little. custodia vetro temperato iphone 7 cheap jordan true flight

cheap jordans for sale mens Colmes also asked Novak about the inconsistency in his story in how he found out Valerie Plame’s name. Novak has said he learned it originally by reading a Who’s Who. Yet, Colmes said, Novak was also quoted in Newsday as saying “I didn’t dig it out. It was given to me, meaning her name. They thought it was significant. Cheap jordans They gave cheap nike shoes me the name and I used it.” cheap jordans for sale mens

cheap authentic jordan shoes websites Novak called that “a misstatement” and he assured Colmes that none of the sources mentioned Plame’s name. “I got it from cheap jordans from china Who’s Who,” Novak said. cheap authentic jordan shoes websites

cheap jordans 9 After the break, Colmes asked if it was true, as has been reported by Murray Waas in The National Journal, that Karl Rove, had testified before the grand jury that Novak had assured Rove he would not get burned by the investigation into the outing of Plame. Novak answered, “That was cheap jordans in china not said. That’s a total lie. It was reported by one reporter in one not very widely read publication and it was not picked up in the general press and the idea that there was any such under the table arrangement between me and Rove of course would have created a lot of trouble with the Special Prosecutor and there was never any action taken by him on that score.” Comment: While Novak seemed to be calling Waas a liar, Waas’ article is really about what Rove testified to, not what Novak actually said. Did Novak have access to Rove’s testimony? Or was he really saying Rove lied and attacking Waas as a feint? Unfortunately, Colmes didn’t probe that cheap jordans shoes point. cheap jordans 9

Novak answered, “I never give motives but I know that the Waas piece in the National Journal which, interestingly, was not picked up by anybody, was totally wrong and a total lie.”

cheap retro jordans for sale free shipping After saying Patrick Fitzgerald was “a straight arrow,” Novak added, “He knew the identity of my source for almost the whole two and a half years of this investigation. He knew the identity of my sources, nobody was indicted. That indicates to me he didn’t feel any law was broken and the Foreign Agents Identity Act was not broken, the Intelligence Agents Identity Act was not violated.” cheap retro jordans for sale free shipping

cheap air jordan shoes for sale Hannity tried to spin that into a smear of Joseph Wilson. “We had Victoria Toensing on this program. custodia doppia iphone 7plus I had her on my radio show. And she was saying this from the very beginning and very forcefully that she was never a covert agent, never met that standard. There was no outing of anybody here which I guess then raises the question about your thoughts at this time about Joe Wilson.” cheap air jordan shoes for sale

cheap vogue jordans Novak said “I’m not interested in attacking Joe Wilson but I really believe he has put out a tremendous amount of misinformation and I think he has presently and for some time been ignored which I think has been the harshest thing you can do to him.” cheap vogue jordans.
