From Buzzflash (about this Newsweek story):
Rove said she [Plame] worked for the agency. But notice the specious argument that Newsweek falls for by saying he disclosed that Joe Wilson's wife worked for the CIA and specialized in Weapons of Mass Destruction, "Nothing in the Cooper e-mail suggests that Rove used Plame's name." Hey, How Stupid Does Newsweek Think We Are? If You Tell a Reporter, Joe Wilson's Wife is a CIA Operative Specializing in WMD, You are Outing Her, In Violation of the National Security Interests of the United States of America. A Four Year Old Could Figure That Out. Get Us a Four Year Old.
More on this story from David Corn.

Recall Clinton's absurd "It depends on what the meaning of the word 'is' is." With good reason, he was ridiculed for this from the right. Well, now we have Rove apparently not actually saying "Plame" but rather "Joe Wilson's Wife," as if there's a difference when it came to outing her. If true, Rove's "defense" is arguably more absurd than Clinton's and without question is it more serious. Rather than involving a sexual act with an intern, Rove's transgression involves treason, an illegal act, and risking the lives of many people.

C'mon "liberal" media, get some spine and go after this story with the vigor and tenacity that you did for all of the Clinton nonsense. Whitewater, Monica, Travelgate, etc., amounted to a hill of beans compared to what's brewing here.
