    He was questioned. There is something you folks don't get. Fitzgerald wasn't looking for the first person who leaked her identity, he wanted to know all of them and why they did it. He apparently was satisfied with Armitage's answer.

    FITZGERALD: That's the way this investigation was conducted. It was known that a CIA officer's identity was blown, it was known that there was a leak. We needed to figure out how that happened, who did it, why, whether a crime was committed, whether we could prove it, whether we should prove it.

    And given that national security was at stake, it was especially important that we find out accurate facts.

    It has already hit in TX and Hispanics aren't the brainwashed liberals you want them to be. TX still is a Conservative state with a large percentage of Hispanics voting for conservative principles rather than govt. dependence, massive govt. spending, and high debt

    [QUOTE=Conservative;1063326593]The difference to me of course are the results and results matter except to a liberal. This is the most incompetent Administration in history and that is saying something. There isn't one economic result that Obama has that is better than Bush and his foreign policy accomplishments are a disaster.
    The only thing he has going for him in the eyes of liberals is that he is transforming America into a European socialist economy and destroying our military.[

    And there isn't a damn thing that the losers on the right can do to stop him.

    We shall see in November. Want to wager on the outcome? What is it about high debt, high dependence, high unemployment, low economic growth that keeps people like you i the liberal camp?

    Oh, she was an agent, Patrick Fitzgerald said she was at the press conference the day Libby was indicted.

    i don't feel that it's in the best interest of our nation to devote those kind of resources to occupy Afghanistan long term.
