Are Bush and Cheney guilty of treason?
by Carol Wolman
US Constitution Article 3 Section 3.
Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War
against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and
Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the
Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in
On Sept 20th, 2001, George W. Bush announced a "war on terror".
"Our war on terror begins with al Qaeda, but it does not end there. It
will not end until every terrorist group of global reach has been
found, stopped and defeated."
If we are engaged in a war on terrorist groups, then anyone who gives
aid and comfort to terrorist groups is an enemy.
One major aim of terrorist groups is to get hold of weapons of mass
destruction, in order to better terrorize a target population, such as
the people of the US.
At the time Bush gave his speech, Valerie Plame was an undercover CIA
agent, running an international ring of CIA assets, whose job was
tracking WMD's through world black markets and preventing them from
falling into the hands of terrorists.
Two years later, her undercover identity was leaked to the press.
Her outing did serious and lasting damage.
Several intelligence officials described the damage in terms of how
long it would take for the agency to recover.
According to their own assessment, the CIA would be impaired for up to
"ten years" in its capacity to adequately monitor nuclear
proliferation on the level of efficiency and accuracy it had prior to
the White House leak of Plame Wilson's identity.
In other words, the outing of Valerie Plame made it much easier for
"every terrorist group of global reach" to acquire WMD's.
Thus, the outing of Valerie Plame gave aid and comfort to terrorist
In other words, whoever "leaked" her undercover CIA identity to the
press gave aid and comfort to terrorist groups, by making it easier
for them to acquire WMD's.
OUTING VALERIE PLAME WAS AN ACT OF TREASON.
"Scooter" Libby took the fall for the administration on the Plame
outing, after being convicted of perjury and obstruction of justice by
Patrick Fitzgerald's grand jury.
Bush suspended his sentence, so he did no jail time.
Now Scott McClelland, who was presidential spokesman at the time,
tells us that both Bush and Cheney were directly involved into
misleading him, Scott McClelland, into telling the press that no one
in the White House did the outing of Plame.
In other words, Bush and Cheney are co-conspirators in the outing of
Plame, or at least in the coverup and obstruction of justice.
They have both committed treason.
If Congress does not impeach them immediately, then the whole Congress
is guilty of treason.
