The Plame-Wilson story: that was the week that was - Wizbang

The Plame-Wilson story: that was the week that was - Wizbang:
"Wow, what a week it's been in the Valerie Plame mess.

First, there was the sight of Richard Armitage -- Colin Powell's #2 man when Powell was Secretary of State -- being frog-marched out of his home by FBI agents and charged with exposing Valerie Plame's identity. Some cynics say that in the end, Armitage -- who had opposed the war in Iraq -- will not spend any time in jail, but instead get a slap on the wrist and become the butt of jokes -- much like former National Security Advisor Sandy Berger, who stole and destroyed classified materials from the National Archives.

Then Powell himself issued a statement through his attorney -- not even appearing in person -- saying that the former Secretary of State would have no comments on the matter while it was still pending before the courts."
