Plamegate

Great read in the LA Times today regarding the outing of Valerie Plame and the ongoing investigation.

Go here to read the story.

It's a timeline and goes over the key facts rather thoroughly.
As sick as I am of the whole thing, this article does a rather nice job of putting the pieces of the puzzle together and how it fits in with the bigger picture of the Iraq war.

Here's a snip:

"What motivated President Bush's political strategist, Karl Rove; Vice President Cheney's top aide, I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby; and others to counter Wilson so aggressively? How did their roles remain secret until after the president was reelected? Have they fully cooperated with the investigation? The answers remain elusive. As Fitzgerald's team has moved ahead, few witnesses have been willing to speak publicly. White House officials declined to comment for this article, citing the ongoing inquiry.But a close examination of events inside the White House two summers ago, and interviews with administration officials, offer new insights into the White House response, the people who shaped it, the deep disdain Cheney and other administration officials felt for the CIA, and the far-reaching consequences of the effort to manage the crisis."


In other news, I saw that Cindy Sheehan will be going on a Peace Tour that will culminate in DC on the 24th. I'll be sure and say hello to her from anyone and everyone that gives a damn. ,
