Revisiting Plame

Via Atrios, an entry at The All Spin Zone describing why the Plame affair is important.

The media have gotten so caught up in their little part of this story that they've lost sight of what the real story is. A highly placed official in the Bush Administration leaked the name of a CIA operative to members of the media in retaliation for the operative's husband daring to call bullshit on the flimsy Iraq-African uranium connection, compromising national security. I'm sorry, why are Miller and Cooper the focus here? Is it because covering the real story makes the press's collective head hurt?
