10/23/2005: It isn't just one person....
Over at Why Now?, Bryan reminds us of why l'affaire Plame is so important:
... Robert Novak's column didn't reveal simply the identity of a single CIA agent, he revealed the connection of everyone working for or with Brewster Jennings & Associates, a front company that cost millions of dollars and years to create.Reason enough for Rove, Libby, and Cheney to be frogmarched and imprisoned, and for Bush (if he was complicit in their crimes, which I am personally sure he was) to be impeached.
Dozens, if not hundreds, of people were put at risk by what the White House did. A major intelligence operation tasked with monitoring weapons of mass destruction was exposed to unfriendly intelligence agencies around the world.
The ability of the United States to maintain, much less expand, its human intelligence capabilities was permanently damaged by this action.
