Above video: Joe Wilson's terse reactions to The Wuss's actions regarding Lewis Libby, when The Wuss became an accessory to the illegal obstruction of justice committed by convicted Libby -- offenses involving several admitted, intentional, malicious breaches of national security by, at least, Richard Armitage, Karl Rove and Lewis Libby -- offenses which, logically, compromised the lives of covert agents and, as we now know factually, destroyed overnight a working, long-term, covert operation in the field which was an effective cluster of espionage and national security efforts for the benefit of the U.S.A.
It was an effective espionage unit specifically tasked with becoming a part of, keeping track of, and tracing for interruption, the international markets for illegal weapons of mass destruction, especially nuclear-related, especially in and about Iran.
As one D.C. director of this operation, Valerie Plame, Joe Wilson's wife, was leading her cover life as a lower-level bureaucrat at the CIA, even a mere socialite at times. The person who holds her official secret position in the CIA is naturally a target for counter-espionage against the U.S. Valerie Plame was not found on magazine covers because of her job at the CIA, her famous husband was on the cover of magazines playing the role of U.S. Ambassador in The Wuss's stable. They were a fiction, just another showy D.C. couple, and now their true relationship is known to the public. The Ambassador husband and the spy wife. Cool.
Valerie Plame's D.C. cover story cannot be used to distract from the malicious, illegal, and dangerous public disclosures of her "secret identity," especially when the disclosers were in a position to know they would probably be bringing harm to working undercover agents and operations of the CIA in and around Iran.
Especially when those crimes blinded a key resource at the worst possible time in the worst possible place, Iran, the opposite of the stated goals of the cabal fronted by The Wuss.
The now blocked information they do not want the world to receive and believe is that Iran is not a threat, especially not a nuclear threat, to its neighbors or to the U.S.A. There is and will be no reason to invade or bomb Iran.
Neither Iran's President nor its people are stupid. They negotiate with strength always as a part of their medium of exchange. Know that, and incorporate that into our relationships with the leaders of such nations. Both the U.S. and Iran, as well as other Arabian nations, negotiate only from a position of varying degrees of strength, arrogance and bravado. Never treat a nation's leader as a fool or a tool. Be as honest as you can, or risk losing an arm and a leg in the deal.

"This is a complete departure from the usual procedure.
Scooter Libby is getting a very special brand of justice.
He is getting enormous privileges that are not available to ordinary criminal convicts."
Made-up headline: "Did you hear what I just heard? Help me out here!"

Tony Snow flippantly "apologizes" for the national security breach that Libby lied about:
Dick Cheney, Karl Rove, and Libby's criminal actions against the C.I.A. and the U.S.A.
Worse than that? Tony Snow strongly dismisses the topic and the reporter with a "Done!"
The reporter's response is the nation's, constantly.

Why do we have information that seems to be "off-topic" for a site named UsQueers.com?
We are everywhere, we are every kind of person.
Here's why the currently featured information is important to us and, we hope, to you:
Ron Suskind: "In the summer of 2002, after I had written an article in Esquire that the White House didn't like about Bush's former communications director, Karen Hughes, I had a meeting with a senior adviser to Bush. He expressed the White House's displeasure, and then he told me something that at the time I didn't fully comprehend – but which I now believe gets to the very heart of the Bush presidency.
"The aide said that guys like me were 'in what we call the reality-based community,' which he defined as people who 'believe that solutions emerge from your judicious study of discernible reality.' I nodded and murmured something about enlightenment principles and empiricism. He cut me off. 'That's not the way the world really works anymore,' he continued. 'We're an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you're studying that reality – judiciously, as you will – we'll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that's how things will sort out. We're history's actors . . . and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.'"
-- Ron Suskind, former Wall Street Journal reporter and author of The Price of Loyalty: George W. Bush, the White House, and the Education of Paul O'Neill, from an article in New York Times' Sunday "Magazine" as cited here on Oct 20 2004 by Anti-War.com editorial director Justin Raimondo in his regular column, Anti-War.com Behind the Headlines.
When you see the GOP talking heads on television, remember that we are aware of something that apparently they are not. "You, all of you" includes the GOP talking heads analysts studying what The Wuss has done, regardless of his lying promises about future riches and glory for his supporters.
Those who support this murderous, pluto-fascist criminal enterprise; including collaborators like the ever-faithful, hide-behind-a-single-issue, "please please please be nice to us good Republicans and let us assimilate into the Party" gay and lesbian Log Cabin Republicans, and the served-their-purpose and bought-off wealthy members of the gay and lesbian Republican Unity Coalition.
This self-branded empire, which has given itself permission to "create reality," "history's actors," have already demonstrated that they are capable of doing horrible, inhumane things in any part of the world at any time to anyone and getting away with it. They are doing horrible, inhumane things all around the world, for profit, and getting away with it. Things which are far outside the acceptable limits of what the "reality based" people of this country would ever have imagined were possible in their name and in the name of the United States of America. They are so far out that most people cannot let themselves believe the depths to which this government has sunk.
The end of the plutocratic fascists' death grip on the U.S.A. will begin when enough of The People realize that the truth is what they have been afraid of accepting, and it is from reality that we have been eagerly distracted.
People are being killed by the tens of thousands for the profit of a small class of uber-elites who also own internal communications. They have no sense of shame, are incapable of feeling guilt, and for them honor is merely another propaganda tool for building wealth. The over-riding rule of thumb for them says that if you were meant to be one of them, one of the elites, you would be. Their god has spoken, they say out loud, by putting them where they are, and it is our fate to feed their fantasy reality with our lives and money.
It has been proven beyond the shadow of a doubt that we are now justified and correct to be more afraid of our own government than we have ever had reason to be afraid of unstoppable domestic attacks from foreign fighters before The Wuss, Bush the Disgrace 4.*
We are far more threatened by our "unitary executive" and incompetent Commander-in-Chief, enabled by the Justice Dept. and the Judicial branch - more threatened by Dick Cheney's over-reaching, unregulated mis-use of the CIA, the Office of Homeland Security, propaganda, censorship, and their private international mercenary military force - more endangered by the enormous numbers of proven violations under cover of the Constitutionally abusive Patriot Acts.
We are threatened by not being able to access the truth about "them" because "they" own the media.
In our own ways, those of us who hang around UsQueers.com want to contribute more information to the pool of available truth about the most important time in the life of this nation since the drafting of the Constitution.
Prescott Bush, a U.S. Senator from Connecticut, was Bush the Disgrace 1, a proven traitor.
George Herbert Walker married into the Bush family and was Bush the Disgrace 2, a proven traitor.
George Herbert Walker Bush, George H. W. Bush, father of The Wuss, will forever be tagged as "The Wimp", Bush the Disgrace 3, a proven traitor.
"The Wuss" more accurately defines George Walker Bush, George W. Bush, the first and second appointed president, Bush the Disgrace 4, a proven traitor.

º Videos (2): Accurate basic atomic bomb plans are made available on the Internet for the first time in history, because Bush recklessly insisted and personally signed the order. Bush put thousands of pages of unsorted early Hussein-era documents on a public government web site, shortly before the 2004 elections.
With the outrageous stated purpose of having the public help to sort, investigate, "vet" them, The Wuss was still hoping someone, anyone would find proof that Sadam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction of some kind. Many copies of accurate plans about how to build an atomic bomb exist. That Sadam Hussein, supreme dictator of Iraq, would possess a copy is not news to international security agencies and nuclear proliferation watchdogs.
They say the difference now is that although it's still a long way from having the plans to having or desiring to produce an atomic weapon, and further still to obtaining the parts, including nuclear material, and the expertise to build it, but such complete, accurate plans on how to build an atomic bomb had never hit the Internet or the public domain before The Wuss ordered it to be done.
The Wuss put the planet at greater risk forever because he was desperate, just prior to Nov 2004, to find some justification for his invasion of Iraq. He had to try to rescue the Republican Party from the eventual use-of-force-related defeats which cost The Wuss his rubber-stamp Congress, along with the help of Ted Haggard and Florida Congressman "Page-Groomer".
Despite The Wuss's reckless, desperate violations of national security (it must be against laws somewhere to publish working atomic bomb plans on a website, even a government website), no new evidence was found in the information Bush ordered posted online. No new evidence that Hussein had the ability, desire or parts to produce chemical, biological or nuclear weapons of mass destruction.

Every "special wartime power" Bush claims to have is based on a very big lie.
Bush was not given the right to wage a war of any kind. He was given a conditional authorization to use military force in a specific situation against specific enemies. Congress needs to amend the authorization to use military force at its most basic level.
Congress needs to define our enemies, to replace Bush's mythical, endless war on a battle tactic called terror with a battle plan to restore America's security using strong and rational military, diplomatic, financial and scientific means.
The War On Terror (TWOT) is a sham and a distraction to abet liars, thieves and war profiteers. By specifying an enemy, such as Al Qaida, TWOT will devolve into the ongoing protections necessary for our nation and its true national interests, enabling the military to recover as fast as possible, while properly re-focusing its efforts onto national security.
"There was not a war declaration, either in connection with Al Qaida or in Iraq. It was an authorization to use military force. I only want to clarify that, because there are implications. Obviously, when you talk about a war declaration, you're possibly talking about affecting treaties, diplomatic relations. And so there is a distinction in law and in practice. And we're not talking about a war declaration. This is an authorization only to use military force."
-- USAG Alberto Gonzales, Testimony, U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee Hearing on Wartime Executive Power and the National Security Agency's Surveillance Authority, Feb 06 2006, a Republican-directed hearing.
"I only want to clarify that, because there are implications," Gonzales testified. Implications like international war crimes tribunals for ignoring and breaking the laws of war.
Different implications if this is not a war, as it is propagandized to be here in The Homeland. Implications like appropriate and required domestic prosecution for crimes against our Constitution, and for deliberate malfeasance in office. Especially with the existing evidence that some of those ongoing actions constitute callous, arrogant, self-enriching treason against the United States of America.
It is a war for the purpose of stealing the treasury of the U.S.A. and the vast majority of its people for decades to come. War for the purpose of laundering that money into your own bank accounts.
It's not a war when the time comes to assess responsibility for the disastrous consequences of that monstrous money laundering operation.

U.S. Military Commissions Act of 2006 Enacted
The Wuss is now A Law Unto Himself
“Obituary: Habeas Corpus, 1789-2006”
Keith Olbermann, Countdown, MSNBC
One legal definition of an “unlawful enemy combatant” describes “a person who, before, on, or after the date of the enactment of the Military Commissions Act of 2006 [Oct 17 2006], has been determined to be an unlawful enemy combatant by a Combatant Status Review Tribunal or another competent tribunal established under the authority of the President or the Secretary of Defense.”
All such definitions are at the pleasure of The Wuss, courtesy of his abuse of “signing statements” by which he grants himself the right to ignore any or all parts of each of the laws he signs -- including the Military Commissions Act itself -- and any law which attempts to limit his power to do whatever he chooses, whenever he chooses, with no possible contradiction of his decisions except by himself, and no requirement that he report any of his actions to anyone ever.
It really is that bad, as bad as it sounds, as bad as it gets.
“The Congress just gave the President despotic powers, and you could hear the yawn across the country as people turned to Dancing With The Stars. It’s other-worldly.” -- Jonathan Turley, Professor of Constitutional Law, Georgetown University.
The United States Military Commissions Act of 2006
The U.S. Military Commissions Act of 2006 is an Act of Congress (Senate Bill 3930) signed into effect by The Wuss on Tue Oct 17 2006. The Act’s stated purpose is to “facilitate bringing to justice terrorists and other unlawful enemy combatants through full and fair trials by military commissions, and for other purposes.”
In a notice dated the next day, Wed Oct 18 2006, the U.S. Justice Dept., that is, Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, listed 196 pending habeas corpus petition cases, some of which covered "groups" of detainees. The new USMCA, according to Gonzales, provides that "no court, justice, or judge" can ever consider those petitions or any other legal actions related to treatment or imprisonment filed by anyone designated as an enemy combatant, now or in the future.
Beyond those already imprisoned at Guantanamo Bay and elsewhere, known and secretly, the USMCA applies first to all non-citizens, legal residents and illegal residents, including permanent U.S. residents. If you are a permanent resident of the U.S., but not a citizen, there is now an extreme risk to your freedom, and the threat comes from this U.S. government.
The risk is extreme particularly for all non-citizens, permanent residents, legal residents and illegal residents, because The Wuss has already granted himself and those he appoints, as well as anybody who claims to be or believes they are representing him, the absolute, dictatorial power to pre-emptively use this law even to disappear citizens “designated as enemy combatants,” and against anyone, anywhere in the world, with no reporting requirements to anyone, ever.
The xenophobia being fostered by the propaganda of The Wuss makes all non-citizens the logical first-strike scapegoat. The vastness and scale of the events foreseen by this warning have never been seen before in this country, though certainly in others and equally possible here.
The Wuss's un-ending, illegal “use of military force” internationally is characterized by pre-emptive, chaotic aggression, for the purposes of control, profit and ultimate domination.
Those characteristics and purposes also will be the signatures of the large numbers of detentions, "regretfully," "for the good of the nation," "for national security reasons," for "public health reasons," or for whatever the public relations created, propagandized, "seemed so necessary at the time" justifications might turn out to be.
The initial detainees, legal and illegal non-citizens set up to take the blame for something, will include permanent resident status non-citizens. You will be held in many locations known and secret, inside and outside the U.S.A. You will be shuffled constantly, for practice and to create a growing pool of detainees and prisoner records failures within which to “disappear” higher value targets.
Lengthy imprisonment with absolutely no rights, no formal charges, no attorney and no judge. Torture in foreign countries, permanently scarring, unavenged. Death, permanently unsolved, no bodies found.
Non-U.S. citizens, legal and illegal, including non-citizen legal permanent residents -- you will be among the first groups to be detained for some scary, stupid, wrong lying reason. Before this happens to you and you no longer have the opportunity, you must pick a destination nation, make your plans and prepare to go if you can, with short notice. Best gut guess? Late Spring to after the elections in 2008. Perhaps as late as late August 2008. Don't be here. Take a vacation out of the nation.
UPDATE from N.Y. Times:
Feb 21 2007
Federal Appeals Court endorses Military Commissions Act, U.S. detainees policy
By STEPHEN LABATON (NYT); National Desk
Late Edition - Final, Section A, Page 1
Federal appeals court in Washington, D.C., in 2-1 vote, upholds 2006 Military Commissions Act, stripping federal judges of authority to review foreign prisoners' challenge to detention at Guantanamo Bay.
Ruling sets stage for third trip to Supreme Court for detainees, who will again ask justices to consider complex issue testing balance of power. Supreme Court has ruled twice that federal statutes empower courts to consider detainees' habeas corpus petitions, but Congress rewrote the law to limit appeals.
The passage of the USMCA responded to the Supreme Court's rejection of The Wuss's claim that habeas corpus does not apply to foreigners declared to be "enemy combatants" and held outside the U.S. This new supportive ruling also was written by the same federal court judge, Raymond Randolph, who had upheld the actions of The Wuss in a previous ruling. Randolph will be the last judge whose authorization to ignore habeas corpus was over-ruled by the Supreme Court, before the USMCA.
Senate Democrats now in the majority plan quick action on a bill to give federal courts unambiguous authority; Republican Arlen Specter endorses the measure and predicts that federal court Judge Judith W Rogers' dissenting opinion in this new ruling will eventually prevail in the Supreme Court.
Mar 2007, U.S. Supreme Court refused to hear detainees' appeal. The U.S. Military Commissions Act of 2006 remains in full effect.
Apr 2007, The Supreme Court ruled against the detainees in another case. The USMCA remains in full effect.
May 2007, The U.S. Supreme Court ruled against detainees in another case. The 2006 USMCA remains in full effect.
1. § 20-45.3. Civil unions between persons of same-sex.
A civil union, partnership contract or other arrangement between persons of the same sex purporting to bestow the privileges or obligations of marriage is prohibited. Any such civil union, partnership contract or other arrangement entered into by persons of the same sex in another state or jurisdiction shall be void in all respects in Virginia and any contractual rights created thereby shall be void and unenforceable.
It’s not just that the failure to protect this nation from the attacks of Sep 11 2001 belongs to the person occupying the White House at that particular moment in history, as the article, "The Blame Game", by Tom Barry for the International Relations Center, fully explains the facts, with resources, historical context and links to back that statement up.
The problem is that the historical facts, as former President Bill Clinton was so insistent on trying to explain to those who viewed his famous television interviews, are still not known to many Americans.
One of Clinton's messages was this: George W. Bush is responsible for 9/11. Not only because it happened while the nation was in his hands, but, more importantly, because he chose to purposefully reject the abundant information he had in his hands for over nine months which would have protected us from those attacks. He had other plans, he preferred to implement those.
The Wuss ignored the intelligence warnings he was getting about impending Al Qaida attacks. Intelligence which pointed out the particular national threat posed specifically by Al Qaida, and warned against treating Al Qaida as just another part of the regional response to anti-American terrorism.
>This information, these facts, were seen as, and reduced to the status of, a pesky interference with the implemetation of his pre-ordained agenda. The Wuss ignored the full briefing and materials specifically about Al Qaida handed to him on a silver platter during the presidential transition period by outgoing President Bill Clinton.
So, what do we do with these facts? Simply let Bush walk, because it would be very messy to prosecute George W. (“The Wuss”), Bush the Disgrace, and we're afraid of whichever cabals of thieves and murderers he fronts for?
We Will Not Kill Or Die For Incompetents, Liars, Thieves and Torturers
Shunning the military arm of this war criminal regime is our duty
Don't enlist, don't re-enlist, get out ASAP.
Gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered and intersexed people are encouraged to shun the military forces being illegally utilized by George W. Bush; to make a broad-based, conscious choice against volunteering for, serving in, or re-enlisting in that military, which already bans our participation as fully realized human beings; to remove our warm bodies from feeding the corrupted machine of this man’s military.
Skip our lengthy background information]
“Wanton, unnecessary, indiscriminate and targeted murder of civilians of all ages,” “use of internationally banned weapons and bombing techniques,” “internationally illegal state terrorism against civilians and nations worldwide, represented by the U.S. policy and practice of unchecked, pre-emptive aggression, invasion, and occupation of sovereign nations for the profit of a few,” “malfeasance during occupation of a foreign nation”, “sexual humiliation and sexual abuse of prisoners of the U.S.A.,” “water-boarding,” “use of prisoner photographs for propaganda,” etc.
Court cases by proven innocent and released victims of these war crimes are routinely thrown out, because to declare in open court that the U.S. is conducting activities worthy of several war crimes tribunals would be to "jeopardize the interests of Homeland Security."
The final outcome of seeking world ownership and dominion is always the same, enormous, deadly failure. The numbers of otherwise uninvolved people of the world who are dead at the end of each run for world control are higher each time, are going to be higher this time than ever before, and will be higher the next time, if there is a next time possible.
We can remember when we used to seek peace on Earth above all, both personal peace and peace between nations, and we believed that to be possible.
Knowledge and tolerance of torture techniques, along with survival skills under torture, are normally part of their training. The chances of being tortured in the performance of their duties just sky rocketed. The jobs haven’t changed because of this monstrous policy, but the conditions of their employment have, drastically and permanently.
Torturing an American citizen would guarantee you get extra trouble. Torturing a member of the American military would gain you a whole lot of dead, guaranteed.
Because we don't do that, we do not need to tolerate anyone doing that to us. That's the way it used to be.
Now, the American military is helping with and carrying out horrific torture with illegal contracted civilian and government secret organizations, run by the CIA, the Pentagon and the Executive branch together and separately.
The Supreme Court commits the error of avoidance by not accepting cases where a ruling on the relative equality of human beings would be required, again; this time as equality pertains to those who are, or who are assumed to be, gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered, or intersexed.
The protections described as the fundamental rights of humans by the bedrock principle, “Equal Justice Under Law,” a capsulized version of that equality as recognized and protected, not granted by any person or group of people, in the Constitution of the U.S.A.
This encouraged and allowed many states to pass their own legislation. Pushed by Bush's free propaganda for this unpopular, religion-based national campaign to amend the Constitution, a patchwork of so many state bans have been passed that the passage of an additional nationwide Amendment has become almost unnecessary, and the same goal of targeted, institutionalized religious discrimination against some of We, The People, is achieved.

The nation's abandonment of the bedrock principle, “Equal Justice Under Law”; including the barring of citizens from receiving that for which they have paid, with their lives and their finances, such as equal benefits derived from the mandatory Social Security employment taxes; along with failure to protect each of those rights and privileges for gays which are automatically attached to others’ citizenship;
