The AP plays the “Plame game”

The “Plame game” is very popular with Democrats and their MSM flacks. It’s easy and anyone can play.

All you need do is blame someone close to President Bush or Vice President Cheney for “outing undercover CIA agent” Valerie Plame who drove to work each day at CIA headquarters for five years before her “cover was blown.”

In this recent AP story reporter Deb Riechmann plays the “Plame game”:

McClellan was ordered to say that White House aides Karl Rove and I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby were not involved in leaking Plame's identity. Later, a criminal investigation revealed that they were.
Just this morning I linked in Novak Outs McClellan to a Bob Novak column in which he said for the umpteenth time that Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage, not Rove or Libby, was "the leaker" who “outed” Valerie Plame, if you can “out” a CIA employee who drives to headquarters each day.

And here’s a video of a CNN interview in which Armitage - anti-Iraq war, anti-Dick Cheney and Colin Powell loyalist - admits he “outed” Plame.

John -

Excellent posting. As I have indicated before, the Democrats and the MSM are afflicted with Bush Derangement Syndrome, and they will stop an nothing to say anything they can negative about him, whether true or false. This whole thing is a replay of the lacrosse hoax. A meta-narrative that has been fabricated from whole cloth, and don't bother with me the truth.

What is unfortunate is that Bush did not have the gumption to shut-down the investigation once it became apparent that no one in the White House was involved. What is equally troubling is that Scooter Libby was convicted of perjury for a non-crime.

To me the moral of this story is, never ever talk to an investigator without counsel present.
