Pissant Arbitrage the Man who holds secrets only when they are about him!

Here's an excerpt from the forthcoming book Hubris authored by David Corn & Michael Isikoff and excerpted in an Isakoff Newsweek piece that has let the cat out of the bag officially "The Man Who Knew too Much". Sadly this Little Richard Arbitrage of US Secrets is not a fictional story like Alfred Hitchcock's and unlike Jimmy Stewart's character who valiantly will do anything to save his kidnapped son, Little Richard hides behind legalese with cover from Powell and State Department Lawyer Taft...Only two similarities between the James Stewart/Doris Day Hitchcock-Flick which depicts the protagonists character's family vacationing in Morocco while getting caught up in an assassination plot are
  1. Colin Powell, William Howard Taft IV, State Dept Lawyer and Armitage are like the conspirators, of the Hitchcock Movie, who were determined to prevent Day and Stewart from interfering/exposing their plot
  2. and it deals with the Middle East, as it takes place in Morocco.
Turns out that Little Richard the Arbitrage Trader of US Secrets is the very "Pissant"(his prefer term of derision) he accuses Frank Gaffney of being and the Jerk he accuses Cheney, Wolfowitz et. al. of being in this article by Jack Schafer entitled "Leak of the Week—Richard Armitage?"
  • "Just prior to joining the Bush administration'and accepting the gag that goes with it 'Armitage denounced Powell's critics to the Washington Post's Steven Mufson, saying, "Frank Gaffney, Gary Bauer, these pissants who have never served in uniform' who would you rather have represent the nation, them or Colin Powell?" "Pissant" seems to be one of Armitage's favorite terms of derision.
  • In a March 11, 2002, piece in The New Yorker, Seymour M. Hersh reported the angry response of a "senior State Department official" to Pentagon whispers that Armitage and Powell had lost their nerve. The official told Hersh he was ready to meet his "pissant" detractors in the Pentagon "anytime, anywhere." Sounds like Richard "Pissant" Armitage, doesn't it?"
From Isikoff piece The Man Who Knew too Much
  • "Armitage routinely returned from White House meetings shaking his head at the armchair warriors. "One day," says Powell's former chief of staff Larry Wilkerson, "we were walking into his office and Rich turned to me and said, 'Larry, these guys never heard a bullet go by their ears in anger ... None of them ever served. They're a bunch of jerks'."
Christoper Hitchens does the best deconstruction of this ridiculous charade by the Paleolithic Media and the Crocodile appeasing Left which has cost the US Taxpayer Millions with the Fitzgerald investigation and drained the energy of the Executive Branch's energy during a time when we are fighting an Islamo-Fascist Guerrilla Styled War with people who as Steyn states:
  • "The sad reality is that never before has an enemy hidden in such plain sight. Osama bin Laden declared a jihad against America in 1998. Iran's nuclear president vows to wipe Israel off the map. A year before the tube bombings, radical Brit imam Omar Bakri announced that a group of London Islamists are" 'ready to launch a big operation' "on British soil." 'We don't make a distinction between civilians and non-civilians, innocents and non-innocents," "he added, clarifying the ground rules." 'Only between Muslims and unbelievers. And the life of an unbeliever has no value.'
All this dangerous nonsense takes place to protect a Valerie Plame a paparazzi, social climbing Non-Covert Jethro Bodine-like Double Knot Spy(for she is no Emma Peal of("The Avengers" ). and Joe Wilson who was a diplomat who never was able to surge his way out the of Middle Pack State Department Diplomats who are assigned to backwater Countries until his wife gets him a gig in Niger eating Saddam's Yellow Cake lies for dessert!

By the way Pissant's definition is:
  • noun
    1.Slang (vulgar). a person or thing of no value or consequence; a despicable person or thing.
    2.Obsolete. an ant.
    3.Slang (vulgar). insignificant or worthless.
  • adj.
    1. Not important; insignificant: "Some pissant Texas court wants to make [the company] pay... more than $10 billion in reparations"
So this is the term I think fittingly fits the Real Life version and protagonist of the "The Man Who Knew too Much" Little Richard who has not a Lion's Heart, his buddy Joe Wilson and his accomplices in the State Department which should be shut down for it has succeeded where the South failed during the Civil War by seceding from the Union.....Pissant Little Richard the Arbitrage Trader of US Secrets is "The Man who Knew Too Much" but keeps secrets only when they may hurt him!
