I Was The Last To Know About Plame's Job At CIA

Mike Taylor is prolific today (keep them coming) and reports on the Plame Outing testimony. You know her, the CIA desk jockey who was keeping America safe from the bad guys. Sshhh! She was claissified.

Here's something you might not hear on the Nightly News:

Bob Woodward, anti-GOP icon from those halcyon days of Watergate, testified on November 14th to Patrick Fitzgerald that he knew of Valerie Plame's work at the CIA ONE MONTH BEFORE BOB NOVAK'S COLUMN.

In his testimony, Woodward said that he learned Plame's place of occupation in an offhand way from several Administration officials, and not in a way that was intended to defame Joe Wilson and his wife. Woodward went on to say that he mentioned Plame's status to another Washington Post writer, Walter Pincus, also before Bob Novak's column.


Now for crying out loud, what the heck was pat Fitzgerald doing for two years? Wasn't the core issue Plame's "undercover status"? Didn't he ask ANYONE if they knew what the woman did other than her neighbors?

I've lived cheek-by-jowl here in my Ridgefield condominium and I can't tell you what the woman next door does for a living.

I'm no legal expert, but one reporter talking about Plame to another reporter about her non-secret status months before Bob Novak's column seems very exculpatory to me. And what about Andrea Mitchell? A few years ago she claimed, on CNBC, that "Everyone knew about Valerie Plame's job. It was common knowledge on the cocktail circuit here in DC".

Then there's the retired general who claims that Joe Wilson mentioned to him that his wife "works at the Agency" while both were in a "green room" at Fox News Channel several years ago.

Some secret. Really "classified" information. A real outing...

Like a mackerel in the moonlight, this whole thing stinks.
