[UPDATE: United States v. Morison is a district court decision, but it was upheld by the Supreme Court, Rehnquist delivered the decision]
CHALLENGE TO JOE WILSON:
“Naming her this way would have compromised every operation, every relationship, every network with which she had been associated in her entire career. This is the stuff of Kim Philby and Aldrich Ames.”
That was Joe Wilson speaking to David Corn in The Nation on July 16th.
Joe Wilson, if he does not want to remain looking like an obvious Bush facilitator of Treason, should demand the Bush administration be prosecuted under 18 USC 794 for Treason since that is the law which sent Aldrich Ames away to prison for life.
CHALLENGE TO DAVID CORN and "THE NATION":
"Corn then published a detailed exploration of the law to ensure that other journalists, as well as regular readers of The Nation, understood all of the legalities involved."
(From Page 349 of Wilson's book, "The Politics of Truth".)
David Corn, you are challenged to publish a genuine "detailed explopration of the law to ensure that other journalists, as well as regular readers of The Nation", understand all of the legalities involved, particularly 18 USC 794 which you have ignored?
CHALLENGE TO DEMOCRATICUNDERGROUND.COM:
A thread at Democraticundergound.com was locked yesterday when the moderators challenged Citizen Spook to provide a "reliable source" for my reporting.
DU, I have given two reliable sources:
Source #1: Title 18 of our United States Code, 18 USC 794. See my analysis of it here
It's an impeccable source, but for some reason your site does not have any discussion or analysis on it. Why not?
Source #2: The District Court's decision in United States v. Morison (upheld by the US Supreme Court) http://caselaw.lp.findlaw.com/scripts/getcase.pl?court=us&vol=486&invol=1306
I suggest you read my sources carefully and then report back to your readership with your own analysis.
CHALLENGE TO NATIONAL REVIEW:
Clifford May did an excellent job of analyzing David Corn's outing of Plame's status, but May and the National Review have failed miserably to cover the applicable laws to the Treason before us, 18 USC 794. Why?
CHALLENGE TO AMERICA
Don't get distracted by the pundits America. The law is the only source you need. Anybody who truly wishes to see the Bush administration and its facilitators pay for their Treasons against this country should analyze 18 USC 794 carefully and then ask why none of the pundits from the Conservative media or the Liberal media have brought a detailed, impartial analysis of this law to your attention.
The USA is the victim of Treason here, not the Wilson's. We suffer for this destruction of national intelligence assets. Our security has been challenged.
This is a very simple issue. We have laws against Treason, why won't the the main stream media or the main stream blogosphere discuss the law our Government has enacted to punish Treason?
There are other scandals that deserve your attention; election fraud, The Downing Street memo and the continuing Iraq war, but demanding a national debate on the violations of 18 USC 794 in the Plame leak and the Khan leak outweigh those issues right now because convictions are easily attainable under 18 USC 794 based on just the facts we know.
Start there America, get the indictments sorted out through pressuring the media to cover the law, and the rats will roll over on each other faster than you can imagine.
The law is clear, concise and available to the Special Prosecutor and the sitting grand juries as well as future grand juries.
I also challenge all American citizens to learn about your Constitutional powers as the Fourth Branch of US Government.
Citizen Spook's identity is irrelevant, as is the merit of any "political" analysis of 18 USC 794...the law stands alone. Media traitors can be located, spotted and outed based upon their decision to cover or not cover 18 USC 794 and United States v, Morison.
America, demand a national debate concerning these laws. Since the media was so driven to analyze the IIPA, why is that same media involved in a total black out of 18 USC 794?
If Joe Wilson and David Corn are not in cahoots with the White House, they can discredit Citizen Spook's allegations by publishing exhaustive analysis of 18 USC 794, discussing previous convictions under that law and and analyzing the line of cases that have used the law.
