Armitage's Foolishness

Former Undersecretary of State Richard Armitage was the first individual to link the true identity of Valerie Plame. It wasn't anyone in the White House.

It was Richard Armitage.

He admits it was a foolish mistake.

It was foolish that Patrick Fitzgerald spent nearly two years trying to find out whether someone leaked the identity of Plame when Armitage was quick to admit this to him. And yet, the Left harbored fantasies of Fitzmas and perp walking members of the White House, especially Karl Rove, for a non-crime.

Indeed, no crime was committed by revealing her identity, despite the protestations of her husband Joseph Wilson. Scooter Libby was not found guilty of leaking Plame's name but rather obstruction of justice and perjury for misleading investigators in the course of the investigation - and was a victim of a perjury trap.
