Remember Valerie Plame? The one that Bushco didn’t betray since she wasn’t undercover, but if they did, they were right to do so? The one who led to the “16 words in the SOTU” on phony reasons to invade Iraq that poor W couldn’t revise? You’d think that the man who made a speech and allegedly declared the war in Iraq a “stupid war” would finally recognize those people and the service they provided for the truth.

But you would be wrong. Jr.jr strikes again.

We find out that

Agreeing with the Bush administration, the Obama Justice Department argues the Wilsons have no legitimate grounds to sue. It is surprising that the first time the Obama administration has been required to take a public position on this matter, the administration is so closely aligning itself with the Bush administration’s views.

And it’s not just some idle opinion – they are actually opposing the request that the suit be reviewed by the SCOTUS. (since when is it even their job to interfere?)

And is this petty revenge for their support for Hillary of enthusiastic Jr.Jr identification? Discuss.

(Personally, I think Obama saw it as 2 birds, one stone deal)

Of course, few will get this little piece of news. B0bots will concentrate on the major CYA action where Obama

“huddles with civil rights groups” before his national security speech – giving his WORM in advance

According to an attendee, Obama expressed frustration with Congress’ decision to remove funding for the closure of the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay. The president declared that his hands were tied in some ways regarding the use of reformed military tribunals, though he pledged to try as many detainees as possible in Article III federal courts.

And as he BS’s them, Marc Ambinder tells us the real poop: Obama may make noise that he is frustraed by Congress but in reality he doesn’t even want to close Guantanamo – the whole thing was a ploy for the idiots out there (and I mean,thoseΒ  abroad, not the Bobots whom he takes for granted):

The shrewdness of Obama‘s executive order on day two cannot be denied, nor can its targeted audience – European and Arab governments, and the broader world – be ignored in the current debate. Β Gitmo was a “rallying cry” for Al Qaeda – that line’s for public consumption – and for anti-Americanism abroad, for European smugness, for exasperation with America by Moslems everywhere.

Now that they are appeased, he can proceed with Jr.jr business as usual. Brilliant!

Update

Th Plame/Wilson flip-flop caused an OBAMA SUCKS headline at the Orange Chetos (h/t Liberal Rapture)
