Plame Sues Cheney, Rove and Libby
The Plame Game…it continues…
WASHINGTON (AP) – The CIA officer whose identity was leaked to reporters sued Vice President Dick Cheney, his former top aide and presidential adviser Karl Rove on Thursday, accusing them and other White House officials of conspiring to destroy her career.
In a lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court, Valerie Plame and her husband, Joseph Wilson, a former U.S. ambassador, accused Cheney, Rove and I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby of revealing Plame’s CIA identity in seeking revenge against Wilson for criticizing the Bush administration’s motives in Iraq.
She has a valid point. They did knowingly undermine her covert status, regardless of what the right-wing blogosphere will tell you.
Get ready for the fireworks.
