Good story About The Outted CIA Officer

I can tell they are just pretending to believe this bunk. Look you can see them smirking. But really I am sorry, I seem to have missed what it is was that made it clear BushCo had done no wrong in revealing a CIA officer's identity.

This new backlash against those who challenged the White House on the Plame case follows disclosure that one of the sources for Robert Novak’s July 14, 2003, column, which blew Plame’s cover, was Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage, who was not considered a close White House ally.

In a Sept. 2 front-page story, the New York Times reacted to this news by suggesting that special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald had been overzealous in pursuing the Plame investigation for more than two years, since Armitage had testified early on that he apparently was Novak’s principal source on Plame.
