feeling smug I am...

According to a book about to be published, the person who first leaked (with no malicious intent!) that Valerie Plame worked for the CIA was Richard Armitage. Armitage, as you probably know, was, and presumably still is, Colin Powell's friend and right-hand man. And Armitage told Powell and the State Department this. And he confessed to the Justice Dept, and to investigator Patrick Fitzgerald, four years ago.

What does this MEAN? (If true. It certainly fits with the conclusions formed by many who have been following the story.)

  • It means the whole investigate-the-Plame-leak circus was a fraud.
  • It means the whole endangering-our-heroic-secret-agents story was a pile of steaming dog excrement.
  • It means that Fitzgerald wasted millions of our dollars getting his 15 minutes.
  • It means that when deranged leftists were salivating over the possibility of indicting close associates of the president, a lot of insiders knew they were pursuing an injustice. And didn't care.
  • It means that Powell and Armitage are scoundrels, dishonorable men.
  • It means that, for the thousandth time, RJ was right, and lefty fatheads were wrong.
  • It means that a whole bunch of people are going to be apologizing to Karl Rove and Scooter Libby. (Ha ha. That's just my little joke.)
