The press would have us think that the outing of Valerie Plame was all about getting back at her husband Joe Wilson for his Niger-yellowcake criticism. But the story is way more involved than that.
Most people don't realize that outing Plame exposed an entire CIA front company: "... OVer decades, the CIA had built up the fake firm and through it insinuated agents to keep an eye on not only WMD, but also ARAMCO, Saudi Arabia and their oil production and politics. Hundreds of agents have worked for Brewster Jennings and Associates. Traitor Novak emperiled all of their lives and the lives of their informants. Now the US is flying blind--just how Cheney wanted it." http://www.dailykos.com/storyonly/2005/7/3/16838/88864
This recent post says it has been "rumored that Plame's Brewster-Jennings just prior to Plames exposure had been instrumental in stopping a load of WMD headed for Iraq through Turkey, and it has been conjectured that this was the shipment and Bush operation to plant the WMD's in Iraq." http://www.opednews.com/articles/opedne_crede_ca_070306_plame_s_brewster_jen.htm
At the heart of what prompted us to launch our imperialist war with Iraq is the lie of the the forged Niger documents, and that's what needs to be investigated now. Here are some links for you all:

Smells like high treason to me. Call your representatives and demand serious investigations. It's time to impeach these guys.
