    A complete bunch of hogwash.

    Not that that particular fact will stop CBS and CNN and the NYT from neating this like a bad dog.

    In case you're curious what really happened here, Bob Novak, the columnist who supposedly was given the "leak" about this Plame woman, here is what HE says really happened:

    During a long conversation with a senior administration official, I asked why Wilson was assigned the mission to Niger. He said Wilson had been sent by the CIA's counterproliferation section at the suggestion of one of its employees, his wife. It was an offhand revelation from this official, who is no partisan gunslinger. When I called another official for confirmation, he said: "Oh, you know about it." The published report that somebody in the White House failed to plant this story with six reporters and finally found me as a willing pawn is simply untrue.

    Of course, Dan Rather;s version is sexier - it's only problem is that it isn't true.

    And as for this Wilson guy, and how "nonpolitical" this good=hearted public servant is, that's all a shameless lie as well:

    And of course at the same time you'll still have the American economy that is weak, unemployment will be up by perhaps another percent and people will be pretty unhappy. And we'll be looking at $500 to $600 billion deficits and we'll still be looking at tremendous trade deficits and all that will start to make people wonder about things like tax cuts and all that stuff we ought to be wondering about anyway. The President wants to run away from that. He doesn't want to run as President. He wants to run as Commander in Chief. so if the Commander in Chief stuff isn't working very well for him and the President stuff isn't working very well for him, what's he gonna do? Start another war.
