The Valerie Plame Affair

Richard Armitage has now been identified as the person who leaked Valerie Plame's name to columnist Robert Novak. This was apparently known to prosecuters early on the investigation and yet they chose to go after White House officials instead.

Everyone said it was him!

Everyone in the White House was under suspicion. The liberal establishment was ready to impeach the entire White House over this affair.

But Armitage gets a free "get out of jail" card and Libby gets indicted.

Just one more nail in the coffin of liberal democratic credibility....

This was the tip-of-the-iceberg neocon conspiracy theory. The story was Wilson was about to go public with info that would discredit the Niger yellowcake uranium ore purchase by Iraq so Karl Rove and Dick Cheney (who else?) attempted to discredit Wilson by disclosing Mrs Wilson, a CIA covert agent, in order to imply that Wilson could not be trusted.

Weeeeelllll, that wasn't quite it, now as it?

It turns out that the Whitehouse didn't reveal anything nor did they do a cover-up. In fact, didn't know anything to cover-up, Armitage never told the Whitehouse anything. Apparently Fitzgerald knew this BEFORE he indicted Libby.

So, here's an interesting question for you conspiracy buffs out there: Why did Fitzgerald continue his Whitehouse investigation if he knew that

a) the Whitehouse wasn't responsible for the leak and
b) Libby didn't know who leaked it and thus, couldn't be covering for something he didn't know about.

I love this stuff.

Oh yeah, and all you gentlemen who were convinced it was Rove & Cheney that leaked, etc. Got anything to say?

They went after White House officials for lying to the FBI. And the fact one of Bush's top officials outed a CIA agent's identity is a good thing? Congratulations on your fucking traitor, you should nominate him for president so you can have a chance at getting two traitors in a row into the White House.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

Ok, I'll take a stab at it. Because Libby perjured himself? We'll see how innocent Cheney et al was when they get on the stand in the lawsuit.
