Rove a Traitor?

At one time in my College days I had thought about becoming a Lawyer and did some initial background study on the profession. Although I decided to go in another direction, one of the things I learned about our legal system was the basic premise of the whole legal system.

It is this…“Intent is the single most important concept in determining the guilt or innocence of a defendant.” The difference between Murder in the first degree, second-degree murder, manslaughter, or accidental homicide is intent.

The same thing applies to being a traitor; you must have intentionally tried to harm your country. When Rove said, “it was, KR said, Wilson's wife, who apparently works at the agency on WMD issues who authorized the trip."
National Review Article “Lawyer: Cooper “Burned” Karl Rove”

Notice that Rove said “apparently” works at the agency. Just because Rove had access to Top Secret information, doesn’t mean that the information about Wilson’s wife working for the CIA didn’t come to Rove from other reporters, or other non-classifed sources and that he had no knowledge that she was anything more than just an administrator working at Langley. She drove to Langley everyday with no attempt to hide where she worked.

When I lived in Arizona, I had a neighbor who worked for the CIA as a bodyguard and he never made any suggestion that all CIA agents are not supposed to say where they work.

Finally, 36 major News organizations and reporters’ groups filed a brief in the D.C. Circuit, when trying to protect reporters "sources", that in effect said that who ever the person was that reveled the identity of the CIA agent had not committed a crime.

The brief further said, “Plame was not given 'deep cover' required of a covert agent...She worked at a desk job at CIA headquarters, where she could be seen traveling to and from, and active at, Langley. She had been residing in Washington -- not stationed abroad-- for a number of years. As discussed below, the CIA failed to take even its usual steps to prevent publication of her name."

The facts are irrelevant to bloodthirsty liberals. They will use this an yet another attempt to get at G.W. They are so predictable.

Yep! I think "Secularists" are the new "false prophets", and they will blind even the elite.

Secularists like professors are paid by the state and therefore become "preistcrafts" in teaching false doctrines that put secular philosophy ahead of morals.

For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Matt 24:24
