Surely ye jest!

All is lost without Valerie Plame Super Spy!

Scooter is in jail for not having 100% accurate total recall, and Ricky "my peeps" Holder commits perjury, and obstruction of justice daily.

I do think we should think seriously about this and put it into historical perspective.

It seems that the left has been far more leaky than the right. I recall that the Plame affair was if not exactly a leak certainly an appeal against the administration by the agency. It probably was a setup from the beginning.

We have a history of the CIA leaking against George Bush and joined by the Department of State. This was undoubtedly a coordinated leak designed to frustrate, not administration policy, but to further administration policy against Israel. It might be that the only motive that Obama has in this is to delay the strike to his schedule so that he can craft an October surprise and strike himself to win the election.

We also have the history of the Pentagon papers which helped unhorse a president of the United States.

I think that George Bush just got it wrong in failing to be aggressive against the leakers but being overly aggressive (or excessively pusillanimous) on the Valerie Plame affair, all to the detriment of national security. Obviously, the administration officials who leaked this have no fear.
