"Maybe someone could apologize to Judy Miller. Or Karl Rove. Or Dick Cheney. Or Scooter Libby. Maybe someone could teach prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald a lesson in professional ethics."
Gotta love it!
The MSM is not going to let their boy, Fitzpatty, let go of Libby. The Wilsons are press whores and happy go lucky plaintiffs. What a crapolla situation.
Has anyone in the MSM asked Schumer any questions on this topic?
He spent lots of time behind the podium with liar Wilson at his side!
Wow! Excellent column, and nicely written.
(I had to scroll back up to check again that tjis was from the daily News.)
You do know that Plame, Wilson, Armitage, Fitzgerald, or anyone spreading this story around as Gospel Truth will NEVER even be asked to apologize, let alone actually apologize or face any criminal or civil liability.
Whatever they did, it was all done in the service of trying to destroy a Republican administration.
They have nothing but a lifetime of six-figure book advances and generous lecture-circuit fees to look forward to. Unless the next Democratic President awards them the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

This column is a well-written summary of the end of the Plame affair, at least in so far as it effects the Bush Administration. Incredibly, this nugget of honesty appeared in the Philadelphia Trotskyite News.
Excellent article. Very well written. Thanks for posting it.
Don't faint..this was actually published in the Daily News.
This is one of the best articles I've read so far on this. Thanks for posting.
This whole thing sickens me. Now that the truth is out, how many liberals are apologizing? none. Is Mrs. Plame dropping her civil suit? Of course not! Shes simply adding Mr. Armitage to the indictment. And best of all, who knew about it all along, but kept silent? Colin "Benedict Arnold" Powell, who now wants to remove any and all interrogation tools against terrorists from our arsenal. Am I the only one who thinks this is getting better (or WORSE), quite frankly, by the minute?!?
Patrick Fitzgerald is the REAL villain here: he new almost from the very first - even BEFORE he was made special prosecutor - that no crime had been committted, that Valerie Plame had not been a "covert agent" in many years - if ever - and yet he persisted, flinging subpeonas about, putting Miz Miller in the slammer, indicting Scooter Libby.
Someone should investigate Fitzgerald.
Armitage, candid for a cabinet post if Kerry got elected, is done for.
He's toast, and will live in shame for the rest of his life.
Colin Powell is totally discredited, for knowing long before the Fitzgerald appointment, that Armitage was the leaker. He is totally discredited now. He can now avoid a political future for real, not just saying so in humble cliches.
Fitzgerald is now known by all as the buffoon that he is and was. Conservatives have known it all along. Some liberals still think he has credibility (good, let them keep this story alive).
Novak told it like it was regarding Armitage, revealing him as a nothing less than a traitor.
Meanwhile, Judith Miller stays quiet about it all rather than coming out with her version of the truth, meaning she realizes her total role in all this, and her time is jail, was a total waste -- to her and to us.
The Wilson's are white trash, in a league with the Clinton's (yep, both of the Clinton's, not just Bill).
Now what about Plame & Wilson's lawsuit claiming Rove, Cheney, Libby, and Armitage "violated their constitutional rights in retaliation for Wilson's criticism of President Bush."? Are they just going to put their tails between their Jackass legs and drop the suit or are they going to let this howler reach court? Wouldn't you like to hear that testimony. Bwa ha haaaa! Maybe they'll settle it by paying the accused $400,000 to forget about the whole thing. Maybe they'll just sue hapless Armitage now.
I'm shocked that the Daily News printed this. The libs there must have been asleep at the switch to let this one slip by them. Good article.
