   ...and John McCain accuses Barack Obama of being an elitist?

     A three-judge panel of the Court of Appeals in Washington, DC has dismissed former CIA agent Valerie Plame's lawsuit against Vice President Dick Cheney and other Bush administration officials. Ms. Plame had sued them for disclosing her identity to the public--thus blowing an important undercover operation and destroying her career.

      According to the court, Cheney and the other defendants were “acting within their official capacity when they revealed Plame’s identity to reporters.”

 

·        “The conduct, then, was in the defendants’ scope of employment regardless of whether it was unlawful or contrary to the national security of the United States.”--Appeals Court Chief Judge David Sentelle wrote in the opinion.

 

    Evidently, in Bu$hWorld, treason, torture, murder or anything else is permissible, as long as the perpetrator was acting within their official capacity. This seems to confirm the Nixon Doctrine, “If the President does it, it is not illegal”.

     Our nation has strayed pretty far from the Founding Father’s vision when treason against the United States and other illegal acts are considered a part of anyone’s official capacity.
