Plame was ‘covert’ agent at time of name leak

MSNBC
Excerpt
WASHINGTON – An unclassified summary of outed CIA officer Valerie Plame’s employment history at the spy agency, disclosed for the first time today in a court filing by Special Counsel Patrick Fitzgerald, indicates that Plame was “covert” when her name became public in July 2003.

The summary is part of an attachment to Fitzgerald’s memorandum to the court supporting his recommendation that I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby, Vice President Cheney’s former top aide, spend 2-1/2 to 3 years in prison for obstructing the CIA leak investigation.

The nature of Plame’s CIA employment never came up in Libby’s perjury and obstruction of justice trial….

‘I felt like I had been hit in the gut’
In March at a House of Representatives hearing, Plame testified saying, “My name and identity were carelessly and recklessly abused by senior government officials in both the White house and the State Department”

She described how it felt to see her true identity exposed in the morning paper, her career destroyed she said…

No leak charges
Several administration officials, including Libby, former State Department official Richard Armitage and Bush advisor Karl Rove, disclosed Plame’s identity to reporters.

No one was ever charged with the leak of Plame’s name itself, which would have been a crime only if someone knowingly gave our information about someone covered by a specific law protecting the identities of covert agents.

HL’s Take
That’s right, no one has ever been charged. Thanks to Patrick “Bulldog” Fitzgerald. He made sure his bosses stayed out of trouble in a democrat-like swindle of the American people. He made everyone believe that justice would be done, and of course it wasn’t, just like Democrats made everyone believe that they would do something about Iraq, and they didn’t. Politicians don’t give a rat’s ass about the people anymore for anything it seems
