Plame Blamed

In yet another bracing slap of a revelation, the Bush administration has shown itself to be venal and vindictive. GWBush must think he's running a kingdom.

Valerie Plame, a woman who acted on behalf of the CIA and was involved in finding out exactly how [in]accurate the Niger connection to Iraq was, has been outed by Bush Administration officials. She was a spy and the administration deliberatly blew her cover. It's a rather complicated story but it is very important to understand this: GWBush wants everybody who has told the truth about the weakness of the African uranium connection to pay dearly.

If that's compassionate conservatism, you can have it. This is really sickening. This is like leaving a wounded soldier on the battlefield. There's no excuse. I do hope the American call GWBush on this dastardly deed.

Where are you finding out details of her activities?

Wilson identifies his wife on his companies web-site. Is it possible that the hundreds or even thousands of people who know her, and know she is married to Wison would know what she does for a living?

The real conspiracy to this is that it is not a conspiracy at all. There was no leak, this was just a reporter doing the bare minimum of research.
