Clarice Feldman writes regarding alleged outing of Plame by Libby:
â€œWe donâ€™t intend to offer any proof of actual damage.â€ (Fitzgerald, responding to defense motions, 2-24-06)
"Good thing that, because heâ€™d be hard pressed to find any. By Bob Woodwardâ€™s account the (CIA) has done an informal assessment and found no damage. The history of Ms. Plameâ€™s employment, during which she was twice outedâ€”once by Ames and a second time by the agencyâ€”means that if she still was at work in 2003 doing undercover work (the only way revealing her identity might create harm) a lot of people at the agency were criminally negligent.
"Despite repeated reference in the indictment to Mrs.Plameâ€™s â€œclassifiedâ€ status, the prosecutor refuses to produce any evidence of it."
This incompetence and bureaucratic game playing led directly to the tragedy of 9/11.

Aside from the nucular issues, you must have had your head up your ass the last two years not to recognize that Iraq had the capability and the intent to both develop and deliver biological and chemical weapons systems. The component parts were found.
