Hey anony nonny
The crap is piling up around the outing of Valerie Plame.
The latest attempt to stuff the genie back into the bottle goes a little something like this: sure they robbed the liquor store, but there really wasn't much of anything in the till.
NBC's Andrea Mitchell went on Hardball and claimed: "I happen to have been told that the actual damage assessment as to whether people were put in jeopardy [as a result of Valerie Plame's covert status having been compromised] did not indicate that there was real damage in this specific instance."
Jane Hamsher writes: "Wow, Andrea, that's amazing. You GO GIRL!!! Where exactly did she get this exclusive, insider information? Well, maybe she watched Bob Woodward the night before on Larry King" who made almost the same claim verbatim. Ditto Tucker Carlson, but he claimed Andrea Mitchell as his source...
"So where is this mysterious assessment? According to the Washington Post and the CIA, it doesn't exist..."
So where are Woodward and Mitchell getting the info that potentially benefits Woodward whose reputation is swirling around the proverbial toilet? Anonymous officials? (Firedoglake)
