The Lid May be About to Come Off

Mark Kleiman has been the source for information on the Valerie Plame Wilson case. If you're not familiar with this story, Valerie Plame is the wife of Ambassador Joseph Wilson. When Wilson expressed doubt about the Adminstration's Iraq WMD claims, in particular the "yellowcake from Nigeria" story, Valerie Plame, who was an undercover CIA agent, was "outed" by someone within the Bush White House - a blatant and stunning act of treason. For months Mark and a few other bloggers have been keeping this story alive. Good news, friends: the CIA has now decided to involve the Justice Department in an attempt to find out who "outed" Valerie Plame. This may result in a phony investigation by Ashcroft et al, but it will certainly interest Congress, several of the Democratic candidates have taken notice, and I suspect the truth may come out and we may be treated to the enlightening sight of various Bushies standing against a wall or however we off traitors these days.
