You seem to making statements of fact not backed up by anything. This is a fact: the CIA asked for the investigation, because they considered her an undercover operative covered by the statue :
"The CIA asked for the investigation after Plame's identity was published by syndicated columnist by Robert Novak in July 2003."

"Sources told CNN that Plame works in the CIA's Directorate of Operations -- the part of the agency in charge of spying -- and worked in the field for many years as an undercover officer.
"If she were only an analyst, not an operative, we would not have filed a crimes report" with the Justice Department, a senior intelligence official said.

Now, you also claim to read Fitzgerald's mind, you seem to know that he did not file charges because Plame was not covert, when in fact he has publically said that the statute is so vague he could not charge the people who leaked her name. Do you have something that confirms your Vulcan Mind Meld on your assertion that Fitzgerald decided she was not a covert agent? The CIA said she was. The Congressional Committee put a statement into the record from General Hayden, the Director of the CIA saying she was. The Grand Jury said she was. Do you have anything other than what your Talk Radio Masters have told you?
