Al Franken on Plamegate


"'And so basically, what it looks like is going to happen is that Libby and Karl Rove are going to be executed' because 'outing a CIA agent is treason,' left-wing author and radio talk show host Al Franken asserted Friday night, to audience laughter, on CBS’s Late Show with David Letterman. Franken qualified his hard-edged satire: 'Yeah. And I don't know how I feel about it because I'm basically against the death penalty, but they are going to be executed it looks like.' Franken later suggested that President Bush is at risk of receiving the same punishment, since Karl Rove likely told him what he did, but he added a caveat: 'I think, by the way, that we should never ever, ever, ever execute a sitting President.'"

…from the Wayne Madsen Report (July 31, 2005):“CIA sources report that at least one anonymous star placed on the CIA's Wall of Honor at its Langley, Virginia headquarters is a clandestine agent who was executed in a hostile foreign nation as a direct result of the White House leak. Rove could be looking at a lengthy prison term. Many Nixon officials spent years in prison for doing much less.�

Can you imagine if Rove and Libby were executed? or Bush?
I would prefer life in prison for them, cause I can't throw a party for an execution.
