    Or at least an investigation.

    Remember https://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?t=83110&highlight=plame"

    Did anyone here pay attention to the http://www.truthout.org/docs_2006/013107Z.shtml" [Broken] to Simple Scotty?

    Here is an interesting point by http://www.salon.com/opinion/conason/2007/11/21/mcclellan/index.html?source=newsletter" [Broken]

    According to former President, Vice President, and CIA Director George H. Bush, revealing the identity of a CIA agent is an act of treason.

    Doubt it.

    You are probably right.

    The story has already been buried by the media.

    Our congressional representatives are gutless hand-wringing wimps, and they either do not understand their Constitutional duty to impeach traitors or they do not wish to do their duty. The founding fathers put the impeachment process into the Constitution to prevent just the kind of power-grab that Bush's handlers have engineered. The Democrats will fail to act, preferring to wait Bush out - watch for blanket pardons to fly long before Bush is in any real danger of being investigated or prosecuted for his misdeeds. So no. No impeachment, no investigation.

    Yeah, I wouldn't count on the Democrats to do anything. Powerful people are too well protected by other powerful people. If Bush & Cheney haven't been impeached for anything yet, they never will be.
