I understand that Powell was a particpant in keeping quiet Armitages involvement. Nothing like having sharks in your swmming pool.
Yes and that Fitzgerald knew this back then as well. I really hope Libby and others affected can somehow get their legal costs reimbursed, their bills must be dreadful.
IMO, Powell and Armitage, by remaining silent in the face of such a media onslaught against the official WOT & Iraq position of the U. S. government, when they had the information that would stop that locomotive in its tracks had they only advised the President of the facts, committed sedition.
I admit that might be overstating the case, but this story has me seeing red, I'm so angry.
Now there is one question that MUST be answered: If (and that's a non-credible if) Armitage truly didn't know Plame's ID was protected with covert status, how did he learn her ID? Who told him? (But I really think he KNEW her ID was classified, or should have known.)
There was a Wall Street Journal editorial during the week that highlighted Colin Powell's involvement in this infuriating affair. The WSJ editorial scorched Powell as being disloyal to the President...I would add a backstabbing SOB and the most over-rated person in America. Powell has reinforced my already low opinion of him.
