What Is Reuters Talking About?
They have this strange story out tonight that talks about the Joe Wilson’s and Valerie Plame’s son “outing” him. When I read it, well, it seemed like more of a paprazzi piece than a news story.
Here, just check out this part…
HOUSTON (Reuters) – The Washington couple at the heart of the CIA leak investigation had their cover blown by their small son as they tried to sneak away on vacation on Thursday.
“My daddy’s famous, my mommy’s a secret spy,” declared the 5-year-old of his parents, former diplomat Joe Wilson and retired CIA operative Valerie Plame.
The former spy, who just retired from the agency, and the diplomat have been at the center of a CIA leak scandal that has reached into the White House.
They said they were headed to an undisclosed vacation location with their twins but stopped for a brief interview inside the airport terminal.
And if that wasn’t odd enough…there’s this…
Plame’s cover at the CIA was blown after her husband accused the Bush administration of twisting prewar intelligence to support military action against Iraq. Wilson said it was deliberately intended to undercut his credibility.
I’m sorry, but didn’t Robert Novak blow her cover? And didn’t the administration (possibly unwittingly) blow it before Novak published his column?
Pardon me, but I’m extremely confused by this story.
