Time to Apologize to Plame/Wilson

By Robert Parry

During the scandal known as “Plame-gate,” it became an article of faith in many Washington power centers that CIA officer Valerie Plame Wilson wasn’t “covert” and thus there was no “underlying crime” when the Bush administration intentionally blew her cover.

This view was pushed not only by right-wing acolytes of George W. Bush but by leading media outlets, such as the Washington Post editorial page, which championed an argument from Republican lawyer Victoria Toensing that the CIA-headquarters-based Plame wasn’t covered by the Intelligence Identities Protection Act of 1982.

I'd say more than apologies are required.
It's time for Bush to do the second thing he's good at.
It's time to give medals and promotions to those patriots who exposed Plame as someone trying to keep WMD materials out of the hands of terrorists and track nuclear material. How dare she.
It's not like her work would be useful for, oh I don't know, let's say, homeland security. Especially with the Iran 'nukular' situation. Her network was so obviously in contrast to Bush's oath to protect Americans.

After that, he should do what he's best at, go on vacation.

I searched the White House website for the announcement declaring we have entered 'bizarro world', yet couldn't find it. Anyone have the link?
