The more I consider the Wilson / Plame story, the more I come to the conclusion that Novak was correct in telling us about Plame. Her status with the CIA is part of the as yet incomplete story about Wilson's bizarre "investigation" of the allegations of Niger's yellowcake. Still unanswered is just why Wilson was chosen and what part his wife played in that choice and what that meant for the integrity of the CIA's search for Iraq's WMD. What political games are Wilson and his wife involved in?
Plame is at the core of the questions about the quality of our intel and whether or not there are elements of the CIA politicizing the issue.
You can't separate her CIA job from this question and you can't discuss this without blowing her cover. And if the Wilson's are playing a political game here, it was their choice to do so that started the events that led to her cover being blown.
I'm becoming more convinced that the Wilson's are not the victims in this scandal.
