Thread Name: BS: Plamegate over Armitage done it
Subject: RE: BS: Plamegate over Armitage done it
Christopher Hitchens, the now agnostic lefty, avers that Armitage did leak Plame precisely to embarrass the Bush admin. because he (and Powell) disagreed with administration Iraq policy. He, and State, stood by mute whilst the Govt spent millions or more in special investigation, looking for phantoms that didn't exist. How cowardly of them! Whatever good will I had for Colin Powell, and it was alot, will have been dissapated if Hitchens is correct.

Since one can only be outed once, the rest is moot. Cf to can only lose it once.
