Where's Your Messiah Now?
So Valerie Plame was outed by Richard Armitage, and not Rove, Libby, Cheney, or Bush. The NY Times editorial board and its op-ed writers have been unusually silent on this revelation. Where are the calls of "traitor, traitor"? Where are the calls of jail time for the man who exposed a CIA agent? Could it be because Armitage isn't a partisan, polarizing figure like Rove?
Or is that that they're just embarrassed that their three years worth of work on bringing down the administration has disappeared into thin air? Or that there was no conspiracy? Or that this as James Taranto said, that "this was a "Seinfeld" scandal--an investigation about nothing"?
