Valerie Plame: Obama is on Bush’s side

So, President Barack Obama is on the side of the patriotic folks who outed a CIA agent working to keep weapons of mass destruction out of the hands of an intemperate leader of a Middle East nation hostile to the United States.

Well, not likely. But the Obama dministration apparently understood the “exemption” of the offices of the president and vice president from a federal law on privacy. And apparently it also understood that even wityh jurisdiction, Plame would have to prove that she was harmed directly by the actions of those named in the suit.

Go figure. Cheney’s scheme worked. At least it worked long enough for him to get the war he wanted and how he wanted it. If he had to ruin the career of a CIA agent in the process, well, that’s just collateral damage.
