Valerie Plame suing Cheney, Rove, and Libby
Well, it's about time. Valerie Plame and Joseph Wilson have filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court accusing Dick Cheney, Karl Rove, and I. Lewis Libby of revealing Plame's CIA identity in an effort to seek revenge against Wilson for criticizing the Bush administration's motives in Iraq.
The lawsuit accuses Cheney, Libby, Rove, and 10 others of risking the lives of Plame, Wilson, and their children by exposing Plame.
"This lawsuit concerns the intentional and malicious exposure by senior officials of the federal government of ... (Plame), whose job it was to gather intelligence to make the nation safer and who risked her life for her country," the Wilsons' lawyers said in the lawsuit.
Plame on! (Only people familiar with Buck Rogers will get that, but what the hell.)
