More McCarthy: Berger Crony, Clinton Appointee, Witness At 9/11 Commission | Main | Man Mistakes Woman For His Girlfriend, She Mistakes Him For Her Boyfriend, They Have Sex; Man Hit With Rape Charge
April 22, 2006

Did Mary McCarthy Send Joe Wilson To Niger?

Plame suggested his name; but a higher-up at the CIA actually sent him.

Who?

Now, McCarthy has links to general-turned-Rumsfeld-resignation-demander Anthony Zinni. And Sandy Berger. And, of course, Richard Clarke.

Would you believe she was also on the NSC during the same period, and with the same portfolio (Africa), as... JOE F'N' WILSON?

It doesn't take a conspiracy theorist to see the vague outlines of a conspiracy here. We have a lot of like-minded people with the motive, means, and opportunity to subvert the democratically-elected foreign-policy official of this country when he dares to disrespect their superior enlightened liberal ideas.

FloppingAces says the name "Jay Rockefeller" seems to be popping up a lot, too. Wishful thinking, but hey, let's dare to dream.

Mary McCarthy was, at least at one time, the National Intelligence Offier for Warning. "Warning" is a branch of intelligence charged with, well, warning the President of potential threats-- collecting bits of data on a threat from all the different intelligence agencies and evaluating the level of the threat and presenting that information to the President.

Iraq was considered a threat in the early 2000's, of course.

It would seem that Mary McCarthy would have been one of the top CIA decision-makers as to what sort of person might be sent over to, say, Africa to investigate a particular threat-- the threat that Iraq was seeking uranium from Niger.

Now, that's how it seems to me. I don't know the NIO/W's exact responsibilities. But her testimony before the 9/11 commission describes the position as being about evaluating and analyzing threats specifically for consumption by the decision-making client (the President).

So: it seems likely she would be involved in investigating the threat of Iraq's nuclear program.


Did this lawbreaker and Kerry partisan ask Valerie Plame to ask Joe Wilson if he'd like to go on a secret public mission to Niger and come back with a report whitewashing any Iraq-Niger-uranium connection?

She would have known Joe Wilson. She knew his political leanings and that they agreed with her own. She would have been one of the people in the loop-- at the top of the loop, really -- for assessing the Iraq-Niger-uranium threat.

So-- was it Mary McCarthy who sent Wilson to Niger?

I'm sure the MSM will be right on top of that one.

The Forest of Mirrors: SheriJo tips that Captain's Quarters wonders...

if the story on CIA detention centers might not have been a sting operation to unmask leakers at Langley. The possibility comes up because on the same day that the CIA terminated Mary McCarthy for her communications to the press, the New York Times reports that European investigators cannot find any evidence that the detention centers ever existed.

Well, that sort of thing is done, at least in Tom Clancy books, and I assume he got that from real spooks. One book mentioned an Operation Canary Trap, where very sensationalistic information was leaked to Congressmen suspected of leaking-- stuff they couldn't resist leaking if it came across their desks.

But... no, I don't think so. I think the EU investigators simply couldn't find the sites. Such prisons exist, we know; we don't know they exist in Europe, necessarily, but I think McCarthy was senior enough to know pure bullshit from real stuff she knew was going on.

I think the prisons are real, the EU is incompetent (or else did us a favor in not investigating as diligently as it might of), and Mary McCarthy is simply the first conspirator to be unmasked.

Update: The NYT found some of the money Mary and Michael McCarthy donated to liberal Democrats, but not nearly all of it. Perhaps they just weren't really looking that hard.

Then again, the donations are all listed one after the other, so it's kind of hard to miss. Unless you want to miss it.
