PLAMEGATE HYPOCRISY: No Outrage at Armitage?
WHERE ARE THEY? You know, all the people who wanted Karl Rove "frog-marched" out of the White House? I mean, the cat's out of the bag. Richard Armitage, Colin Powell's assistant Secretary of State is the one who leaked Ms. Plame's name to Robert Novak. Armitage, along with Powell, opposed the Iraq war. Does this change their demand that "whoever" leaked her name should go to jail? Of course it does, because they never cared about the exposure of Ms. Plame. It was all about NAILING KARL ROVE. End of story. The hypocrites can get their jolly's watching Scooter Libby go to trial, but I doubt it will have much political impact, even in the unlikely event he is found guilty.
