Bryan York has an article at the Washington Post that details one of the many problems with the Scooter Libby case: that Ms. Plame was not a covert CIA agent. We know that Mr. Libby did not leak her name; we also know that she was not a covert agent. So there is no underlying crime, but the judge refuses to allow this evidence into the courtroom.
Victoria Toensing also wrote about the real criminals in the Scooter Libby case – inter alia, the special prosecutor who should have known that there was no crime and Richard Armitage, who disclosed her name and then kept silent.
What is really shocking is that this is NOT a scandal.
