more on the Plame case.

Bush vows to fire anyone who committed crime in CIA leak

some choice quotes:

"Anybody who's ever made a mistake in this administration has never paid at all. Everyone who has been right in this administration has been fired."
Sen. Joseph Biden, D-Delaware

and

Wilson called his wife's exposure an act of political retaliation that ended her career. But some observers have questioned whether Plame, then assigned to Washington, met the definition of an undercover agent in the 1982 law that makes revealing the identity of an American spy a felony.

Wilson has said that the CIA considered her exposure to be a crime when it sought a Justice Department investigation of the matter.

"The CIA would not have frivolously referred this to the Justice Department if they did not believe a possible crime had been committed," he told CBS' "Face the Nation."


I think that about sums up my stance on the matter as well.

"So did Rove leak Plame's name to me, or tell me she was covert? No. Was it through my conversation with Rove that I learned for the first time that Wilson's wife worked at the CIA and may have been responsible for sending him? Yes. Did Rove say that she worked at the 'agency' on 'WMD'? Yes," Cooper wrote in Time's current edition.

Writing in the current issue of Time after testifying in court last week, Cooper said: "So did Rove leak Plame's name to me, or tell me she was covert? No.
