The Valerie Plame covert-operative-who-has-been-outed-by-nefarious
-Republicans story was BIIGGG NEEWWWS! back in the day.
I said then that that no crime had been committed. But the-vast-left-wing-conspiracy machine convinced most of the country that "Karl Rove should be frog marched out of the Whitehouse, in handcuffs" etc.,etc. This is eeerily similar to the present Tom Delay smoke/mirrors tar/feathers exercise.
"The special prosecutor investigating whether Bush administration officials illegally revealed the identity of a covert CIA operative says he finished his investigation months ago, except for questioning two reporters who have refused to testify."
"That special prosecutor's characterization of his efforts led to indignation among press advocates who learned of the filing yesterday. They said it bolsters their suspicion that Fitzgerald has put two journalists in jeopardy of incarceration though he may not have sufficient evidence to indict someone for the felony he was appointed to investigate."
Oh, the irony! Seein' as how it was the reporters who beat the drum for a special investigation in the first place.
Anyway, it turns out I was right. There WAS no crime committed. I am waiting for an apology from all you Lefties who made hay back then..........but, of course, I will not hold my breath.
