plame will speak

Outed CIA operative Valerie Plame will speak to Congress next week. The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee has invited her and Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald to talk to lawmakers about the government's handling of the leak. She's already RSVP'ed, but he hasn't.

Good to know something is still happening with all this. Once again I want to remind everyone: her husband, a former ambassador, decided to go investigate the administration's claims that Iraq was buying enriched uranium from Niger. When he couldn't find anything to substantiate these claims (and when he wasn't quiet about it), his wife's identity as an undercover agent was suddenly and mysteriously leaked to the media.

Do I have to spell out for everyone how vindictive and nasty that is? And this is from OUR government. OUR people are responsible for this.

Even though no more criminal charges are being sought in the case, Plame and her husband have filed a civil action against Scooter Libby, Shooter Cheney, and a slew of other government types they think were involved. And, of course, I'm advocating impeachments all around.
