Was a Crime Committed?


If the law regarding the exposure of covert-op agents was broken, somebody ought to be prosecuted and go to jail. But it appears that the law in question requires 1) intentional exposure–which presumably would mean that if the leaker knew Plame worked for the CIA but did not think she was involved in covert ops, he’s not a criminal–and 2) that the leak have come from someone with access to classified information. We haven’t yet established these points.
