There is no such thing as a "liberal media;" so say the leftist pundits. After all, the media is owned by corporations which are by definition "conservative" and thus they wouldn't jeopardize their income by being liberal. And if you believe that twaddle, I've got a quit-claim deed to the Brooklyn Bridge I'd be happy to sell to you for the paltry sum of only $99.99. Think of it, having your very own bridge.

But, I digress! The ABC blog "The Blotter" has a report by Brian Ross and Richard Esposito concerning the existence of a "Presidential Finding" that authorizes the CIA to begin a campaign of "covert "black" operation to destabilize the Iranian government."

The CIA has received secret presidential approval to mount a covert “black” operation to destabilize the Iranian government, current and former officials in the intelligence community tell the Blotter on

The sources, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the subject, say President Bush has signed a “nonlethal presidential finding” that puts into motion a CIA plan that reportedly includes a coordinated campaign of propaganda, disinformation and manipulation of Iran’s currency and international financial transactions.

So, since this is a "covert" action, lets spread it over the airwaves and the internet, I mean after all, it is the peoples right to know isn't it? Geeze guys, can you be more Anti-American than you already are?

This isn't a matter of beating another news organization to the punch, this is a matter of divulging to Iran, a country guilty of arming the so called insurgents in Iraq, helping them plant and manufacture bombs designed to kill civilians and US military alike. This is the country that committed an armed act of war against the US when it occupied our embassy in the waining days of the Carter administration. This is the country that any truly rational person recognizes as a very real threat to peace with their willy-nilly rush to manufacture nuclear bombs. And you bastards have the gall to "out" the plan?

Too often the left leaning media (and some of their allies in the Democrat party and in the CIA) have accused the right of questioning their patriotism. Well, they have proven themselves unpatriotic. And I would still be making this charge if it were a Democrat in the White House as well. Of course, if there were a Democrat in the White House, I doubt that the left leaning media would have stooped to this level of chicanery.

The media has let their aptly named Bush Derangement Syndrome overrule all common sense, and for what? To discredit a President? To warn Iran? To get a scoop? Bastards!

Another point of view from Jules Crittenden:

I’d be curious to know whether the people blabbing are disapproving or purposefully trying to send a message. Given that the message seems to be “We won’t attack,” I’m not sure how useful it is to put this out. That just tells the Iranians going into next week’s Iraq talks that they don’t need to worry about military consequences.

They don't hate America, they hate an America that is superior in any way, shape, or form to any other government on the globe. Therefore, to make things "even," they will do anything to bring America down.

Man, I've heard all manner of speculation this morning already. One commenter on a blog suggested that ... um ... a CIA official leaked information on what the CIA is doing so the CIA won't get blamed if it turns into a disaster. Wrap your brain around THAT one.

I'm of the mind that if they weren't doing covert ops like this, then they've been remiss in their duties.

I also wonder sometimes if this isn't the sort of thing that won't bite us in the butts later as it has with OBL. The majority of the people in that corner of the world aren't really inclined to repay help with any sort of gratitude by not turning on us like a snake. It also gives the leftists another cudgel to beat us with later. But, that doesn't mean it's necessarily the wrong thing to do at the time because there are still a lot of people who don't want to be under that yoke of extremism, namely women - and children being indoctrinated into the hate and anger.

IF any of this is true, the 'leaker' needs to be hung by his BALLS, if he has any...

And this is one time that the press and their 'rights' need to be circumvented by any means necessary to OUT the bastard(s) that did the talking, there are times when examples MUST be made...

I'm surprised it's being leaked as something "new." I just assumed we ALWAYS had a covert operation going on in Iran and I'm willing to bet the Iranians did too. You know, those Islamofasicts and us Libruls think alike.

I just assumed we'd ALWAYS had a covert destabilization effort ongoing in Iran. I'm pretty sure the Iranians did as well. You know Islamofasicts and us Libruls think alike, so this can't be surprise to them.

Bleh... got an error message on the first comment, made another one and they both went through. Us Libruls... we're just sorry good for nothing types who can't work voting machines or computers, apparantly.

I'm with moose on this. I just expected we've had one going for months, maybe years. Which was fine, BTW. Now I have to wonder if we're just getting into the game in the second half.

Posted by Assistant Village Idiot at May 23, 2007 05:58 PM

AVI, oddly enough, I agree with Moose also. However, even if we have had a plan in place, the ABC report is bad on its face. Outing black ops just because you can may have significant deleterious effects on national security, besides being against the law.

(telegraph sounds) Flash! The Allies have obtained a machine called Egnima to decipher secret German military communications.

Posted by Woody at May 24, 2007 06:32 AM

It's not that it doesn't exist, it's not that it's not very likely going on as we type, it's the fact that people actually need to keep their mouths SHUT concerning it...

People have their lives on the line, doesn't the MSM and the like GET that part??

Posted by TexasFred at May 24, 2007 03:44 PM

The media doesn't really believe that "we" can lose, so even if we leave Iraq and there is an Iraqi version of Killing Fields, the anti-Americans will blame America. But few Americans will actually suffer.

If Iran really does get a nuke, Tel Aviv will go mushroom before Miami (98% estimate by me). Then we can do regime change with a good conscience.

It just feels bad for leftists to accept regime change before a nuke is actually used.

(Glad GM & Woody are still active, too)

So our independent & free press is required to remain mum on such things, else they be id'd as "anti-American" (or worse)? Is that in the main body of the Constitution or one of the Amendments?

The bogeyman here is not the ABC, or the broader Media, the bad guys are the sources who leaked secret information they were, likely, under oath not to speak about.
