leak-o-rama

Honestly, I think that my favorite part about the big White House leak investigation is the picture of Valerie Wilson (a.k.a. Victoria Plame, Valerie Flame, et c) that the New York Times uses in its interactive infographic [nyt]. All of the other players get pseudo-mugshots, while the former CIA covert operative gets a mysterious looking old time glamor shot.

Isn't that shot from the Vanity Fair spread she did with her husband? And doesn't that make you wonder - if keeping her identity a secret was so important, why would you allow yourself to be photographed in one of the most popular magazines around simply wearing a head scarf and Jackie glasses?

It makes as much sense as Clark Kent hiding his Superman idendity with a pair of eye glasses :)
Of course Superman was pretty successful at fooling people with that lame-o disguise, so maybe she knows something we don't...
it worked --

I can't read the text, but I'm assuming that the photo shoot took place after she was exposed as a covert agent?
I don't think it would have been a national story otherwise...
Yeah. Vanity fair isn't typically in the glamorous lives of former ambassadors content market.
right--i think that she was already outed and the career as a covert CIA-op blown.
my favorite part is that we've apparently realized that perjury is not, in fact, a real crime.

i guess we shouldn't have impeached bill clinton for that then?

in all seriousness, this shit makes me want to scream.
I think that li'l kim really caused evertone to rethink this whole "perjury is a crime" business. Maybe the people spinning on the sunday shows should get involved with freeing her, too.

The stranger is having an indictment night party tomorrow. At least someone's making the best of this madness.
