Much like the Trent Lott story, which went dormant for awhile after being initially reported and then exploded, the administration leak of Valerie Plame’s identity as an undercover CIA agent is becoming big news after going away for a month or so. The Washington Post has gotten an unnamed “senior administration official” to acknowledge that two other “senior White House officials” leaked her identity to six journalists in order to discredit her husband, Robert Wilson, who had torn down the “uranium from Niger” bit in the State of the Union address. If the Justice Department follows up, then we could see some grand jury action in the relatively near future. I’ll admit to some schadenfreude here, but let’s face it, giving up the identities of undercover CIA agents in order to score political points is repugnant.
