Plame’s CIA role: view from the inside

Eleven former intelligence officers provide,* in a letter to Senate and House leadership, their insights regarding the treatment of Valerie Plame, particularly noting the inanity and inaccuracy of those in the media who’ve labeled her a mere desk jockey. One excerpt:

“These comments [from media personalities and politicians] reveal an astonishing ignorance of the intelligence community and the role of cover. The fact is that there are thousands of U.S. intelligence officers who ‘work at a desk’ in the Washington, D.C. area every day who are undercover. Some have official cover, and some have non-official cover. Both classes of cover must and should be protected.”

I am waiting for GW to quite "waffling" and "flip flopping" on this one and fire the fat guy. Rove either

1. Broke the law and need to be stuffed into a cell with bubba.

2. Broke is NDA and should be fired.

Either way, he needs to be removed. Best documentary on Rove: Bush's Brain. Even his fellow non neo-con Republicans hate him.
