(John Kerry) Forget Jack Bauer
Opinion Journal ^ | September 14, 2006 | JOHN KERRY

Posted on 09/14/2006 5:28:05 AM PDT by digger48

Your Sept. 12 editorial "Jack Bauer Insurance" was a disservice not to me or to fictional characters like Jack Bauer, but to the very real CIA agents whose commitment to the truth didn't fit the administration's neoconservative agenda on Iraq, and to agents endangered by reckless administration policies.

(snip)

Former CIA case officer Jim Marcinkowski argued the Valerie Plame leak hurt "the credibility of our case officers when they try to convince an overseas contact that their safety is of primary importance." Former CIA agent Larry Johnson, a registered Republican, said it "speaks volumes" that President Bush held no one accountable for the leak of an agent's identity. Forgotten is President George H.W. Bush's admonition that those who expose our agents are "the most insidious of traitors." CIA officers don't need Jack Bauer insurance--they need insurance against the recklessness of this administration

the administration's neoconservative agenda on Iraq

Kerry's using the "it's the Jooooos" codeword.

If it was so important that she not be exposed as once working under cover, why did she drive through the front gate of CIA headquarters every day to report to work?

Lame, lame, lame...

Kerry is an irish jew. his parents became catholic to blend in with society. to prevent discrimination against them. his parents didn't bank on the fact he'd destroy his good name and lie as he has.

HA, THAT guy again! Now John Kerry's using him. What a joke.

You know, John. You would have done well to stay out of this particular mess of Fitzy's right now. But you just couldn't help yourself, could you?

There is one reason (among a thousand) you lost the election. You have NO COMMON SENSE!

Kerry blew the cover of a "real" covert CIA agent during Senate hearings 2 years ago.

Waiting for a lawsuit (sound of crickets)

Oh, it only needed this! Well, as long as he brought the subject up, perhaps he would like to explain his connections both with Joe Wilson and Armitage, who was rumoured to be under consideration for Defense secretary in a Kerry administration.

I think there are some questions KERRY should answer. Under oath.

It looks more like he had a Jewish grandfather who took an Irish name when he came here.

I can't address his motivation but conversion to Catholicism was not the road to social advancement at the end of the 19th century.

Oaths don't mean much to Kerry. But it would be nice to officially record his lies.
