The Plame Game

The first time that a grand jury was assembled to look into the Valerie Plame leak, there was rumblings and curiousity as to exactly how far up the administration ladder this went. The top rung at the time was determined to be Scooter Libby, costing us one vice-presidential chief of staff.

Now it looks like information has surfaced in the ongoing investigation that points squarely at KRove. This may answer some of the questions that were raised in the previous search, and could possibly lead to charges against the man who orchestrated GDub's rise to power. One of the big questions that's coming out of this has got to be this: "If Rove was as involved as some people have suspected all along, isn't there a good chance that it went higher up, as well?"

The guess on that one is going to be no. After all, Cheney can't keep himelf awake for diplomatic talks, and GDub barely seems to understand the difference between talk and action. While even he has to start owning up to the fact that there have been some serious mistakes, I don't know if he has the mental fortitude or prowess to really piece together this particular tidbit of information. Besides, KRove will do everything in his power to keep it away from The Great Decider's ears, for fear that another "decision" may be looming.

The person who looks like they may take the biggest fall out of this whole mess? Bob Woodward, who some may remember from the Watergate scandal.

Wonder how it feels to be on the other side of the lens.
