    Considering clowns like Harry Ried were standing up in the Senate Lamenting the failure of Bush's surge before it was over I sincerely doubt they would have.

    But since you people are justifying this as a "Mistake" anyway why should it go unpunished ?

    Why should no one be held accountable ?
    In all fairness, the regime can't handle anymore scandals.

    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?
    They didn't do the same thing. Valerie Plame worked for a CIA front company named Brewster Jennings & Associates, so everyone involved with that company were also exposed.

    This "people" never said anything like what you are insinuating.

    We call this "straw".

    But, please indicate anything more than speculation that Obama was even trying for a meeting, it looks like pure self promotion from here.
    It's starting to look that the trip to Afghanistan was just a damage control trip over that the VA was cooking the books under Obama's watch.

    Obama is just trying to convince the American people that he likes the U.S. military, he would never use the military for social engineering or allow drag queens to entertain the troops on air force bases or that he trust those serving under his command and would never order the U.S. Marines to hold umbrellas or remove the bolts from their rifles.

    Suddenly, when faced with the opportunity to build an argument on the idea that this was deliberate.....you get weak in the knees......and post a non-sequitur....that admits to it being a mistake!

    Color me unsurprised.

    It was a front company, not a real company. Please provide the names of all of the others who were exposed.

    Is the man's whose name was outed in danger or not?
