On November 5th, Fair Game opens in a movie theater near you. It’s a true story about a CIA agent whose cover was treasonously blown by our own government. This was her punishment for being married to the man who revealed credible information which discredited the White House’s “evidence” about Iraq’s alleged WMD’s. This crime was traced all the way to the top of the Bush/Cheney (Cheney/Bush) administration.

What does this have to do with President Obama? He dropped the ball on the first day in office. He should have pounded the previous occupiers of the Oval Office like the guns of Navarone. I know he wanted to move forward and didn’t want to rock the boat, but if he threw the book at these guys, the Democratic/liberal base would have remained more loyal. These upcoming elections would have been a joke. Also, and maybe more importantly, he would have protected the executive branch from future corporatists who are more loyal to the dollar than to the Constitution they took an oath to protect.
