The Dick is a traitor...

It's now become transparently obvious that Cheney was the motivating force behind the vengeful "outing" of Joe Wilson's wife Valerie Plame, a covert CIA agent, in retaliation for Wilson's questioning the White House's bullshit story claiming Saddam was trying to get yellowcake uranium from Africa:

Notes that Vice President Dick Cheney wrote on a newspaper article might help explain a motive in the perjury and obstruction case of Cheney's former chief of staff, I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, according to documents filed by the prosecutor in the case...Friday's filing includes a photocopy of the article with Cheney's notes written in the margins. According to the photocopy, Cheney scribbled four questions at the top of the page:

"Have they done this sort of thing before? Send an Amb. to answer a question? Do we ordinarily send people out pro bono to work for us? Or did his wife send him on a junket?"

The annotations support the notion that Wilson's op-ed piece drew the attention of Cheney and Libby, and "acutely focused" their attention on Wilson's assertions "and on responding to those assertions," the filing stated.

"The article, and the fact that it contained certain criticisms of the administration, including criticism regarding issues dealt with by the Office of the Vice President, serve both to explain the context of, and provide the motive for, many of the defendant's statements and actions at issue in this case," Fitzgerald's filing said.

By God, that fucker might actually go to jail. Or at least be indicted. Couldn't happen to a more evil guy.
