Plame Game - Flippy Fitz's Flippy Case

Clarice Feldman at American Thinker catches "Flippy-Fitz" in his Flipping!

"Here is a sample of the sort of self-serving hooey the Special Prosecutor dished at his press conference following the indictment:

FITZGERALD: The fact that she was a CIA officer was not well- known, for her protection or for the benefit of all us. It’s important that a CIA officer’s identity be protected, that it be protected not just for the officer, but for the nation’s security.

It’s a far cry from his January 9 response to Libby’s counsel, responding to a discovery request (Exhibit B to Libby’s last filing):

Request D A formal assessment has not been done of the damage caused by the disclosure of Valerie Wilson’s status as a CIA employee, and thus we possess no such document, In any event, we would not view an assessment of the damage caused as relevant to the issue of whether or not Mr. Libby intentionally lied when he made the statements and gave the grand jury testimony which the grand jury alleged was false.

Request E We have neither sought, much less obtained ‘all documents, regardless of when created, relating to whether Valerie Wilson’s status as a CIA employee, or any aspect of that status, was classified at any time between May 6, 2003 and July 14,2003’

Of course I'll second Clarice's point she makes in the rest of the article to wit: Why in the hell did he continue an investigation when it was clear from the beginning that no crime had been committed - i.e. She was not a covert agent?

Again, there was "more" behind the investigation than to just protect the "integrity" of the Service - as if Democrats ever cared about CIA agents.

Yeah.....and Al Gore is an intellectual, and Howard Dean a "controlled" man.
