Speaking under strict confidentiality, intelligence officials revealed heretofore unreported elements of Plame's work. Their accounts suggest that Plame's outing was more serious than has previously been reported and carries grave implications for U.S. national security and its ability to monitor Iran's burgeoning nuclear program.Well, yeah, if you wanted to kill two birds with one stone, that would make lots of sense.
While many have speculated that Plame was involved in monitoring the nuclear proliferation black market, specifically the proliferation activities of Pakistan's nuclear "father," A.Q. Khan, intelligence sources say that her team provided only minimal support in that area, focusing almost entirely on Iran.
What is amply clear though, in light of the recent revelations that Cheney authorized Libby to leak classified information, possibly the identity of who sent Amb. Wilson to Niger amongst other tidbits that would favor the administration's political objectives (of launching an unprovoked and unnecessary war against Iraq), is that he has directly done damage to our national security... it might even be argued, given the recent amplification of the drumbeat of news regarding Iran's nuclear ambitions, that this was intentional.
If there were someone more deserving of impeachment, I don't know who that would be.
Impeach Cheney. Impeach Bush. Impeach the whole lot of war criminals infesting the White House.
Do it now.
