Woodward, Terrorists, and Cheney

In case you weren’t scared when you woke up this morning, here’s some frightening scenarios from none other than Bob “Keep my sources secret” Woodward (Thanks to Huffington Post):

Woodward said the possibility of "the Mideast imploding," cannot be dismissed, and that his darkest fear, shared by some in the intelligence community, is that terrorists are waiting until "multiple, high-stakes attacks" can be launched on U.S. cities and targets.

He said, "9-11 will be a footnote, but it could happen, and if it does, we will become a police state." –

As Woodward himself wrote about his first meeting with Mark Felt:

In 1970, when I was serving as a lieutenant in the U.S. Navy and assigned to Adm. Thomas H. Moorer, the chief of naval operations, I sometimes acted as a courier, taking documents to the White House. --How Mark Felt Became 'Deep Throat’ Washington Post

Make no mistake about it, Bob’s an old hand at sharing info with the intel community, and according to the blog “Rigorous Intuition,” possibly even protecting it:

Former intelligence briefer Bob Woodward obligingly led the [Watergate] investigation away from the intelligence community…

No matter what we might think of Woodward’s latest principles in handling sources and secret information, with respect to his not being entirely forthcoming in the Plame outting fiasco—he’s still a voice worth listening to. With that in mind, here’s a really scary notion:

He noted that Republicans have a long track record of nominating "old war horses."

Given that, and depending on how things in Iraq proceed, "You're going to think I'm crazy, but you heard it here first. I think they could nominate Dick Cheney." --

Speaking of “old war horses,” how’s Ramey Clark coming along with the “Impeach Bush” movement? Can’t happen too soon, and take Cheney with him…
