Oh, what a tangled web we weave....

If you've been distracted by Congressional Dems again screaming about how Bush lied/people died, take a refreshing break with Max Boot's column in the LA Times. (Am I imagining or, with the new editorship, has the LA Times improved every so slightly?) The heart of Boot's argument is as follows, but you'll want to give yourself the pleasure of reading the whole, not very long, article:

By 2003, Plame had apparently been working in Langley, Va., for at least six years, which means that, mystery of mysteries, the vice president's chief of staff was indicted for covering up something that wasn't a crime. Making the best of a weak hand, Democrats argued that the case was not about petty-ante perjury but, as Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid put it, "about how the Bush White House manufactured and manipulated intelligence in order to bolster its case for the war in Iraq and to discredit anyone who dared to challenge the president." The problem here is that the one undisputed liar in this whole sordid affair doesn't work for the administration. In his attempts to turn his wife into an antiwar martyr, Joseph C. Wilson IV has retailed more whoppers than Burger King.
