Depends on what your definition of "Special Prosecutor" is.

The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and thatís what I intend to reverse.

I must have missed all that.
I read where it turned up squat(in 2 yrs) even though some one admitted to the crime!

Not enough to suggest that the perps be tried for treason? I'm afraid you're on your own then...

I seem to recall in your article that the guy was not "active" at the time of the outing, because he had been retired for several years. As I recall the right winger's defense of Valerie Plame's outing was that she wasn't up to their standards (but she was up to the CIA's standards) for an "active" covert agent.

What we have here is a shithead selling out for money. The guy should not be turned into a goat and hauled through a public kangaroo court and hounded for the rest of his life. The reporter needs to grow some guts. But to suggest this is the same as the Plame affair is missing the point - the Bush Administration leaked her identity to the Press to purposely ruin her career in retribution for her husband's article criticizing the Bush Administration's misreading, purposefully and thereby misleading the American people, data on Iraq's WMD, and then lied about it.

Who told the reporter and outed the retired for several years and therefore not an active covert agent of the CIA, that the guy was in fact the CIA agent who interrogated KSM? That is what the investigation should seek to uncover. Jim

Well if this outing has zero ties to the Bush administration, then Congress wont give a damn.

Yes, that mean old partisan Congress going after the fair and balanced non-partisan WH. Shame on them.

The law defines "covert agent" as a present or retired officer assigned to an intelligence agency.
There is apparently nothing the liberals/left won't excuse or condone if it doesn't fit thier agenda.
He was assigned to the CIA. He was outed. It is a felony and the responsible parties should be prosecuted.

No it's not the same, not by a long shot, but there still could be ramifications that place certain aspects of or members of our government at risk for no good reason.

Didn't they already do that? And what was found?
