WPost Prints New Wilson/Plame Attack

Rather than fire Washington Post editorial-page editor Fred Hiatt or at least apologize for all the newspaper’s past misstatements about former Ambassador Joseph Wilson and his wife, ex-CIA officer Valerie Plame, the Post instead has published a rehash of the lies and distortions about the couple.

This new attack is contained in a column by right-wing pundit Robert D. Novak, who originally blew Plame’s CIA cover in July 2003 and has sought to add insult to the injury ever since. Some of Novak’s past falsehoods about Wilson/Plame also have found their way into Post editorials, apparently without benefit of fact-checking.

Why is Novak still walking the streets? Isn't he guilty of the only crime explicitly defined in the constitution i.e. Treason?

Didn't he give aid and comfort to the enemy by intentionally exposing a covert agent of the CIA?
