Once and for all, who 'outed' Valerie Plame?

Yes, I wrote on this once and my contention still stands.

Valerie Plame was in the socialite circles enough to mingle with and meet high-flying Ambassador Joe Wilson.

In 1998, she married him.

You cannot be both a covert agent and do that thing.

That is an abdication of your responsibility as a covert agent.

You can only do that after a 5 year waiting period to clean up your tracks.

By all accounts in the Intel Community Valerie Plame was outed in 1991 and 1992.

She waited 5 years.

She married a high-flying Ambassador.

Who outed Valerie Plame?

The answer, in chorus, please:

But AJ, that's too much like expecting common sense from people who espouse precisely the opposite!

Insert Alfred E. Newman photo here:

"What, me THINK?"

Mr. Z - Agreed. As the old saw goes: 'Too bad common sense isn't'

Yes, expecting people to actually think for themselves... so much to ask... such a heavy burden... I will forego the necessary Time Bandits quote here.
