The ‘Plame Platoon’
Max Boot has a good piece today in the LA Times about the ‘Plame Platoon’ (heh – I like that) and how they’ve gone mysteriously silent on ‘leaks which harm our national security’ in light of the recent NYTimes story about the President authorizing ‘eavesdropping’ in the aftermath of 9-11.
Boot knows what I and so many others do regarding the real motivations behind most (not all, but most) of those who were so ‘concerned’ about the Plame ‘leak’ – it’s not really about national security, it’s about nailing the President to the wall on something … anything that will stick.
Even if it harms the very national security they want you to think they are so concerned about.
