Plame Game

By GotDesign
Well, today is the day on which the authority for the special prosecutor for the so-called CIA Name Leak runs out. Thank you, Lord. This has been the biggest joke in a long time. Let's review the facts.

Under paragraph B of Section 421 0f Title 50, Chapter 15 of the U.S. Code (Protection of Identities...):
Whoever, as a result of having authorized access to classified information, learns the identify of a covert agent and intentionally discloses any information identifying such covert agent to any individual not authorized to receive classified information, knowing that the information disclosed so identifies such covert agent and that the United States is taking affirmative measures to conceal such covert agent’s intelligence relationship to the United States, shall be fined under title 18 or imprisoned not more than five years, or both.
According to the statute listed above a "covert agent's" identity may not be knowingly disclosed. Valerie Plame was not a "covert agent." Case closed. Despite that, the special prosecutor is plowing on to get indictments of White House officials. The claim is being made that either Rove or Libby, or both, leaked Plame's name. But from what I've heard, the only thing they said was that Ms. Plame worked for the CIA. Which does not necessarily indicate her status as an covert. There should not be any indictments. If there are, they are completely political.

Let's get rid of Special Prosecutor law. It should not be reauthorized. No more Witch Hunts!
