It's a good thing you didn't provide a quote son.<quoted text>
You almost answered the question of where our intelligence came from, after Bill Clinton gutted the CIA with his human rights purge and Bush taking over with no foreign intelligence capabilities to speak of.
Germany is one of the countries giving the US intelligence on Iraq.
That intelligence was given to Vallerie Plame to verify, as is exactly what her job description reads. Valerie Plame verified that intelligence. Thus, this is what the president had to go on.
But, you accidentally stumbled onto the REAL reason for ousting Saddam Hussein. Just how do you think it was that Germany had such detailed intelligence gathering capabilities in Iraq?
Do you think that they being the single largest contractor rebuilding Saddam Hussien's war machine and being paid with money Saddam was stealing from the UN's oil-for-food scam would be motivated to give to the US any information that would keep the sanctions against Saddam Hussein current and the money stolen from the UN's oil-for-food scam continually being given to them?
It was Vallerie Plame's job to verify this intelligence.
Now, I can't lay all the blame on Vallerie Plame. After all, she was working in the CIA, and when Bush took office Bill Clinton had gutted the CIA to nothing. So, she really had nothing to use to verify the bad intelligence from (among a total of three countries giving intelligence to Vallerie Plame)Germany.
Damn. If you keep stumbling around here, you're eventually going to stumble across the facts, just like you just did.
You might have broken your losing streak!
Your claims against the station chief at the time in Europe.
It's a really, really close call son but you LOSE!
