The Age of Miracles

Guess who:
[I]t now appears that the person most responsible for the end of Ms. Plame's CIA career is Mr. Wilson. Mr. Wilson chose to go public with an explosive charge, claiming -- falsely, as it turned out -- that he had debunked reports of Iraqi uranium-shopping in Niger and that his report had circulated to senior administration officials. He ought to have expected that both those officials and journalists such as Mr. Novak would ask why a retired ambassador would have been sent on such a mission and that the answer would point to his wife. He diverted responsibility from himself and his false charges by claiming that President Bush's closest aides had engaged in an illegal conspiracy. It's unfortunate that so many people took him seriously.
Answer HERE.

[UPDATE] It is always flattering when those whose web sites get thousands of hits per hour decide to agree with us, make the same observation, and indeed select precisely the same quotation. But we wish to make unmistakably clear that we were here first, ahead of these guys, ahead of those guys, and WAY ahead of this guy. We also suggest that we are the only one in the bunch who read this in its dead-tree version. Thank you for your attention.
