    Wow, so quick to get an investigation under way here and so slow to get one going over the leaking of Valerie Plame's ID.... I wonder why?[/SARCASM]

    Yes, I'd noticed that too. Within 24 hours of the broadcast, they were right on it.

    Notice almost all the attacks are on O'Neil's character and motivations, not on the veracity of the claims themselves.

    O'Neill is quoted by the BBC as saying all the documents used in the book were released by Treasury Dept. legal counsel.

    It sounds like more of the intimidating tactics used against Plame and her husband. If you go against this WH you are going to pay. In this case at least in the pocketbook of O'Neill - legal counsel to defend yourself against even spurious charges by the government doesn't come cheap.
