Valerie Plame keeps cashing in on story that wasn't that important
My concern is that the bureau traced the leak by using the AP's telephone logs, raising serious questions about an assault on the press's constitutional protections.
With Plame's resurfacing, I couldn't help but consider the dramatic contrast between the revelation of her name and the far more serious and concerning disclosure about undercover operations in Yemen. There truly is no comparison.
One did no damage to the security of the nation, only to those who got caught up in the case. The other might have resulted in the loss of vital sources. So if you're compelled to pick up "Blowback," keep that in mind.
