Then admit it and be done with it.
It has already cost Scooter his job (wonder what he is getting in exchange for not totally spilling the beans on this) and has tainted several others.
If it was a political hack job, admit it, take all the thunder and righteous indignation way from Plame and Wilson. Then they are just two people who were gotten the better of in political hack jobs… Wilson fired first and missed; Cheney fired back, and took out Wilson’s wife.
It would be ACCEPTIBLE as a hack job by both sides. But the way it played out with all the denials (eventhough anyone with half a brain knew that the Admin was gunning for Wilson), it turned Plame into a “victim” of the Admin. And that gets press.
