It’s going to be interesting to see how this plays out. It’s looking pretty obvious at this point that somebody within the Administration revealed Valerie Plame as a CIA operative. Why really doesn’t matter – the fact that they did should be enough for Americans to demand full accountability from the White House. This isn’t just bad behavior, this is a major violation both of Federal law and of the protection of our intelligence community. Will the arrogance of the Bush Administration cause them to justify this in that smug manner that has characterized so many of their decisions? Will all those Stepford Republicans once again rally ’round, because if a Republican did it, it must be a Good Thing?
