    The two situations are quite different, the outing of the CIA agent in Afghanistan was done by mistake. The outing of Valerie Plame was done on purpose, but at the time the didn't know she was covert. They wanted to embarrass Joe Wilson.

    Anyone who doesn't recognize the fact that Valery Plame was outed by people working for G,W. Bush under the Bush mis-administration is way out of touch with reality

    Yes, amazing memory you have on what happened over a decade ago but cannot remember what is happening now.



    Get back with us in thirty years and tell us how the GOP is doing after the ongoing demographic change in the USA hits it full force like a tidal wave.

    Armitage said that he learned about Plame's employment from a State Department memo that did not mention her covert status, and that he had no knowledge of it at the time. In 40 years of reading classified materials, Armitage said in a telephone interview, "I have never seen in a memo . . . a covert agent's name."

    Armitage Says He Was Source of CIA Leak
    You just refuse to address the details of the memo.

    This is so stupid!

    I believe that Miller was truthful when she said Libby told her Plame was CIA, I believe Cooper when he said Rove told him Plame was CIA, I believe Novak when he said Armitage told him Plame was CIA.....the point is, why did they all do that?

    completely different area of the world, and a different situation. we could stay in Afghanistan for one hundred years and still not be able to make it into a stable democracy. they have to do that themselves, and we need to fix our crumbling infrastructure and come up with a different energy model.

    That is your opinion, the agent in Afghanistan is in harm's way, it is questionable whether or not Plame was even an agent. Joe Wilson embarrassed himself and didn't need any help.
