They sure did. There is no reason to give her early pension, after all it was Joe WIlson that listed her as his wife long before they found a way to blame the Bush administration for her so-called 'outing.'

Was government money spent to send Joe to Niger? Can we get that back?

Unbelievable.

Can you imagine the uproar if we'd tried a similar thing with Linda Tripp?

Herbook deal apparently blew up becasue the CIA nixed a lot of what she wanted to write about, so she is looking for a handout. She quit, she was not fired, so too too bad. If she gets this, then darnit, every civil servant should/could quite their job with the fed government and ask for pay anyway.

Do not miss this, and, in particular, Inslee's complete misrepresentation of the events that led to Ms. Plame leaving the CIA.

Exactly!

:snip:

"On January 9, 2006, Mrs. Plame Wilson resigned from the CIA, recognizing that any future with the Agency would not include any work for which she had been highly trained."

For the last and final time - that _itch, Valerie Plame was never, ever covert.

Could they all stop aiding and abetting this women who's husband was a publicity-seeking hound and sought to make something of her vapid vacuous career.

Now WE are supposed to pay for her retirement despite the fact taht she didn't earn it? Oh puhleeeeeeeeeese.

Well, give me one while you are at.

We're already funding her pension. This moron wants her to be able to start collecting money now without any penalties for early retirement.

In other words she'd be collecting more money that she should based on her years of service.

He's simply suggesting the government pay her an extra $21,541.00 from now until she reaches retirement age.

This is in addition to the pension she will receive when she reaches retirement age.

Interesting that after Col North testified before Congress they attempted to pull his pension.

As a matter of fact John Kerry voted to have his pension revoked.

Probably so. I swear to GOD, this is already turning into the worst (censored badword) Congress I've ever seen. Every day they're in session is another day your property is at risk.

What a damn con game:

He parades his prized trophy CIA wife around DC, then after enough people know about her and he opens his stupid yap about yellowcake, her position is "discovered" .. for all intents and purposes ... provoked by HIM.

And now that causes US .. we the people ... to fork over her pension $$ EARLY to her because she's been SO harmed (and because he's such a fool that he can't get a decent job, except speaking to podunk Rotary Clubs ...)

And, oh yeah .. it's all Bush's fault. Cute.

Looks like the same old direction to me; and it looks like the Dems are back in business!

God only knows what has flown under our radar.

IF she gets it early, that means that over her lifetime, she will have collected EXTRA $$$$$ money not allowed others. Special treatment. (I thought she quit to have the twins. Has she applied for any other desk job so that she could put in the required time per regulations?)

That's exactly right. She's already got a pension coming (and arguably rightfully so-- it's vested to her), just not yet. She chose to get out early. Tuff Nuggets. :-)

Following the initial outing in the media, Mrs. Plame Wilson's future as a covert CIA operative ceased to exist and her career of two decades was destroyed.

Inslee has this entirely wrong. Plame was identified by the KGB as a CIA officer in the early nineties. She was immediately recalled from foreign service because of it. She was unusable as a covert officer from THAT time on. This recent business about her was of no consequence.

Great work finding this. Funny how the Wilsons failed to alert the press on this money grab. Maybe they're doing another magazine photo spread tonight with Valerie panhandling at the Georgetown end of the Key Bridge.

I was listening to that discussion, up to about an hour ago.
Sen. Bobt. Bennett (R)Utah was giving Feinschwein some run for her $$ about the line item veto issue.

He had dates, facts, etc. about the line item veto comments she made in 1998!! WooHoo .. the Rats got very silent after his speech. She was trying to say the bill was too complicated ... LOL .. then when he threw back her positive comments about it ..and related as to how BillyJeff had used it .. whoo boy. It was precious. And Lott stepped up and was pretty good, too.

That explains it.
I hope some smart Republican comes up with an alternative bill, something along the lines of recalculating her "time served" and getting it below the required minimum to qualify for a pension at all. I bet there's an appropriate 'Joe Wilson' bill that somebody could come up with as well.
