Plame Game - Redoubling the Effort

In case there was any doubt that the Plame Game is passé, let me clue you in - it is.

But that won't stop those on the left from continuing to beat that dead horse even deader. Case in point Murray Waas. As noted here, he's rehashing the same story over and over and over again each time with a different glue hoping at least one time it sticks.

"Vice President Dick Cheney directed his then-chief of staff, I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, on July 12, 2003 to leak to the media portions of a then-highly classified CIA report that Cheney hoped would undermine the credibility of former Ambassador Joseph C. Wilson, a critic of the Bush administration's Iraq policy, according to Libby's grand jury testimony in the CIA leak case and sources who have read the classified report."

Ok, once again, for the slow of mind. The Vice President, just like the President cannot LEAK because he has the authority to declass anything he desires to declass. End of story Waas, collect your check.

Secondly no one has to undermine the "credibility" of Wilson - he has none. A fact that has been clear since he summer of 2004, yet the left has been trying to rehabilite the liar ever since. Administration critic my ass.

Waas needs to give it up, the story is dead and indeed wasn't a real story to begin with. Unless you want to really find out what took place at breakfast at Kristoff's.
