The Rest of the Story

Byron York documents all the discrepancies between Valerie Plame's self-serving account of the Plamegate affair in Congress last week -- and the facts turned up in the bipartisan Senate Intelligence Committee Report.

Note that my former boss, Sen. Kit Bond of Missouri, is quoted in the linked piece.

Plame testified under oath. If she lied then she should be punished. I look forward to the right's drive to have her prosecuted for lying.

And if the right do not call for her prosecution, then they are tacitly assuming that Plame was not lying.

That may indeed happen, OSO. But the right has a whole different idea about how to pick one's battles. They may not think there's much worth in pursuing such a case, if her lies have not caused any harm. I would think that those involved in running the hearing should be on top of that stuff and react accordingly. At least I hope so.

What a joke. Byron is alleging nonsense hoping something will stick. Kit Bond is doing a CYA for his rubber stamping tainted witch hunt. Valerie didn't have the authority to send her husband.

Silliness in the extreme.

Reading Byron York's piece I get the impression there are emotionally suspect people at the CIA. One young operative ,"very upset" and another "Almost in tears". And then Valerie angling for Her career. No wonder they botched the pre-war intelligence. It's funny there are politics inside politics inside politics. I guess sometimes it's better to be lucky than good.

NOT calling for Plame's prosecution
might mean that they don't want to
suffer the harassment by the dems and their wicked, meat grinding, diabolical torture machine.

wicked, meat grinding, diabolical torture machine.

You're not describing Gitmo or Abu Ghraib by any chance?

Actually they are talking about forcing the miscreants to listen to Hillary recite her African-American poem!
