    If there is truth to the howling we heard when Plame's name was outed, that her life was in jeopardy and so on, wouldn't that be the case with this guy, times like 100,000? Does the left fear for this guy's life the way they did Plame's life?
    What, exactly, did the CIA station Chief in Afghan do to the admin that would cause them to out him?

    Anyone?

    What if it was sheer incompetence that caused Plame to be outed ?

    Would the Democrats have understood ? Given the GOP a pass ?

    And generally people are held responsible for their mistakes unless they work for the Obama administration.

    Snd this one appears to be a huge mistake.

    Do you know the difference between mistake and on purpose?

    If the government would get it's boot off the private sector's neck, we could accomplish that. Afghanistan isn't slowing that process.

    But it wasn't, you had Rove telling Cooper, Libby telling Miller and Armitage telling Novak. No one believes Armitage's mea culpa.....the memo was stamped SECRET all over.

    Would the Democrats have understood ? Given the GOP a pass ?
    Um, this was an administrative leak from multiple sources.

    And generally people are held responsible for their mistakes unless they work for the Obama administration.
    Seriously, you think there was some ultimate responsibility held in the Plame outing?

    Snd this one appears to be a huge mistake.
    Uh....whu?

    Of course I do. I would assume most people posting on here do. Most drunk drivers don't get behind the wheel of a car with the intent to kill others. But let's say they kill some innocent person while driving drunk. So their actions should just be chalked up to a mistake, and everyone should move on?

    We heard repeatedly what danger Plame was in after the "outing". Is this man not in more and more serious danger given his job versus what she did?

    Or in this case, was the "outing" of Plame not really the important, life threatening issue the left made it out to be, now that the Obama administration stupidly did the same thing?

    Do a little research and find out.

    Why should I do all of your work for you?
