For those of you who remain confused about the character of the Wilson-Plames, this link-rich timeline makes it clear precisely who and what they are. Read it carefully.
CWCID: Glenn Reynolds.
MORE: For dessert, read Andy McCarthy's Corner post on the bizarre hypocrisy of our nation's leading media organizations, which have contrived both to argue in federal court that Valerie Plame was not covert and to report that she was. My question: Were these newspapers misleading the judge, or their readers and viewers?
Interesting, I really have not paid much attention to the Libby trial, but I did see Val on a news show Friday. Still can't figure out why she was testifying since this whole thing seems to be over now.
This topic seems to have a lot in common with the firings of the 8 prosecutors. A lot of smoke but not much fire.
Politics, what can you say?
The one thing that the timeline piece is missing, is any evidence that Wilson outed Plame (though that is the meta-carge). All it is is a timeline, and an assertion.
I think the only rational conclusion is that Wilson did not out Plame. The spectacle of non-evidence being presented as conclusive evidence is, in itself, pretty good evidence that there is no evidence for the charge.
