Placing Plame

No doubt, the vicious, repetitive, ill-informed right-wing punditry will be out in full force today to dismiss the 60 Minutes interview with Valerie Plame.

But one thing has become unavoidably clear. The man, who as recently as this weekend, has been pledging to keep nukes out of the hands of Iran, was the same man who outed Valerie Plame, a CIA agent, whose main mission was to keep nukes out of the hands of Iran.

A man like Dick Cheney, so committed to keeping the world safe from nuclear weapons, must have been mighty pissed to pull the trigger on one of the most effective operations working toward that goal. He must have been so angry as to go, well, nuclear.
