Well at least they convicted someone...

I'm glad that Scooter Libby was convicted for his role in outing Valerie Plame in an effort to get back at Joe Wilson. But I think someone should have been charged with the actual disclosure to the press of the fact that she worked at the CIA. Her career was ruined because her husband figured out that the Bush Administration was lying. All of this just pisses me off and I have no idea what to do about it. Now it has come to light that the DOJ has been firing prosecutors to make way for political cronies and because of the Patriot Act (thanks, Democrats in the previous Congress for being a bunch of spineless weasels when it came time to protect your constituents rights) the replacements can be called "interim" and then don't have to be confirmed by Congress.

and of course there is that little problem at Walter Reed.
