Karl you may still be in beeg trouble

Plame Was Still Covert at Time of CIA Leak. So there you have it. Confirmation from the redacted portion of a federal court ruling in the CIA leak affair has been made public this past week. This puts to shame all of the Republican hacks who have been mouthing off so callously by questioning Plame's covert status in the first place:
Lawyers for Libby, and White House allies, "have repeatedly questioned whether Plame, the wife of White House critic Joe Wilson, really had covert status when she was outed to the media in July 2003," Newsweek's Michael Isikoff notes. "But special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald found that Plame had indeed done 'covert work overseas' on counterproliferation matters in the past five years, and the CIA 'was making specific efforts to conceal' her identity, according to newly released portions of a judge's opinion."
Not good news for , unfortunately, whose fate mysteriously still hangs in the hands of Fitzgerald. Such a shame.
