Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay claimed that Valerie Plame was not a CIA agent on CNN's Hardball

The Bugman was back on Hardball today and he was really just a swell guy. Delay is totally one hundred percent against any type of leaksâ€”exceptâ€”if they concern Karl Rove. Tom actually said that Valerie Plame wasnâ€™t even a CIA agent.
Why? The abbreviated version of the DeLay Theory of the CIA is that you can't use a desk and be a CIA agent. It's like how you can't be a Republican and launder money. The law just isn't meant to apply in those special cases. It's an original intent thing. You probably won't understand if you're a Democrat.
