The Plame Game
Boy the libs are certainly sure that this time there's a pony underneath all the horse crap. Here's an article from the AP
that starts out ominously:The evidence prosecutors have assembled in the CIA leak case suggests Vice President Dick Cheney's chief of staff sought out reporters in the weeks before an undercover operative's identity was compromised in the news media, casting doubt on one of the White House's main lines of defense.
But as you read on, it becomes less certain:In light of all the disclosures, "it's going to be as difficult for the defense to prove the theory that the White House got the information from reporters as it is for Fitzgerald to prove that the White House leaked the information about Wilson's wife," said Washington-based white-collar defense attorney James D. Wareham.
The defense doesn't have to prove "the White House" innocent; the prosecutor has to prove them guilty.
And this is silly:Prosecutors must determine whether it was part of an effort to undermine the credibility of Plame's husband who was criticizing the White House.
Undermining the credibility of Joe Wilson is not a crime; if it were, Joe Wilson would be in jail.
