Why You Can’t Ever Trust Reuters, Either

Another typical example of what passes for journalism from the professional propagandists at Reuters:

Bush didn’t know about CIA leak: McClellan

By Andy Sullivan Sat Jun 21

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President George W. Bush did not know about a White House effort to leak the identity of a CIA agent but tried to protect staffers who were involved in one of the biggest scandals of his administration, former Bush spokesman Scott McClellan told Congress on Friday.

McClellan said he did not think Bush was involved in a 2003 effort to blow the cover of CIA agent Valerie Plame Wilson, whose husband had accused the administration of twisting intelligence to justify the Iraq war.

But Bush, through his chief of staff, ordered McClellan to tell reporters that White House staffers Karl Rove and Lewis "Scooter" Libby were not behind the leak, even though they both turned out to be involved, McClellan told the House Judiciary Committee…

Again, these are simply lies.

Lies that our watchdog media persist in repeating in article after article. But they are lies nevertheless.

For as we know now, despite the best efforts of the "journalists" at Reuters, there was no effort by any White House officials to reveal Valerie Plame’s identity.

That was revealed by Richard Armitage, and before him, Joe Wilson. And both of these gentlemen were current or former denizens of the State Department.

But Bush, through his chief of staff, ordered McClellan to tell reporters that White House staffers Karl Rove and Lewis "Scooter" Libby were not behind the leak, even though they both turned out to be involved…

Again, this sleight of hand from our watchdog media. They slip in this false premise at every opportunity until everyone thinks it is fact.

For if McClellan was ordered to tell reporters that Rove and Libby were not behind the leak, he was telling the truth. (Something he seldom stoops to now that he is in the pay of Mr. Soros.)

For as a very expensive and unnecessary witch hunt headed by Mr. Patrick Fitzgerald knew from the start uncovered, neither Mr. Rove nor Mr. Libby were "behind the link."

Indeed, their their only involvement was in corroborating an already known fact. Such as in Mr. Rove’s telephone conversation with Robert Novak, as related to Brit Hume of Fox News:

HUME: Did you call Rove or did he …

NOVAK: I called Rove.

HUME: And did you call for the purpose of getting this confirmed or did this come up in passing?

NOVAK: I called him for several reasons. I wanted to talk about the column I was writing about the mission to Niger. Almost all of my conversations with Rove were not for attribution and in the course of that I told him. I asked him about Wilson’s wife at the CIA, working with the CIA and initiating this visit and as I remember the conversation very distinctly, Karl said to me, "Yes, I know that, too."

HUME: "I know that too?"

NOVAK: Yes.

HUME: He didn’t say, "You know that, too?"

NOVAK: No. He said, "Oh, you know that, too?"

But this is how Reuters spreads lies and propaganda for their Democrat masters day in and day out.

For those who are interested in who actually did leak Ms. Plame’s identity and why, may I suggest our own exegesis on the subject:

When And Why Joe Wilson Outed Valerie Plame.

It contains much information you will never find in any article from the professional liars at Reuters.
