Valerie Plame was indeed covert at the time of her outing according to a newly declassified CIA document - so yes, it was a crime that she was unmasked, one no-one has yet been charged with. Scooter Libby should go to jail for his involvement but where's the real culprit? Some folks wonder how many wingnuts will retract and begin baying for traitorous blood...and aren't holding their breath.
Bush is an abject and pathetic failure - so it was only a matter of time before someone suggested he must be some kind of liberal.
