The Plame Affair « Previous | |Next »
October 1, 2003

Brad deLong has a good summary of the issues involved in what the Americans are now calling the Plame affair.

It's a legal issue not a publicity issue ias it a violation of law for officials to intentionally disclose the identity of a covert operative.

Billmon, over at Whiskey Bar makes a call: the CIA are gunning for the Rove machine in the White House.

I dare say that the imperial presidency in the White House will endeavour to sidestep the issue of Bush staffers retaliating against a critic of his foreign policy by ruining his wife's career. What Bush should be doing is calling for the leaker(s) to come forward and resign. After all, they broken the law.
