Valerie Plame Working on Iran and WMDs

On Chris Matthews' Hardball Monday evening, just moments ago, MSNBC correspondent David Shuster confirmed what RAW STORY first reported in February: that outed CIA officer Valerie Plame Wilson was working on Iran at the time she was outed.
"Intelligence sources say Valerie Wilson was part of an operation three years ago tracking the proliferation of nuclear weapons material into Iran. And the sources allege that when Mrs. Wilson's cover was blown, the administration's ability to track Iran's nuclear ambitions was damaged as well."

I have retyped parts of this report, which were originally in ALL CAPS, for ease of reading. So much for those who say that Valerie Plame was not a covert agent and that there was no underlying crime.

This administration does absolutely nothing by chance. Outing Plame was a twofer...take down Joe Wilson, who had dared to call them on their deception, and take out the best intel we had on Iran's nuclear progress. Now the sabre-rattling starts about just how close Iran is to having a viable nuclear device. Our ability to know that is gone with Brewster-Jennings... and the war dance starts. One of the only things that keeps me from major depression reading your blog is the wonderfully delicious Candy Barr. That I saw her perform is one of my most cherished memories.

More Candy coming soon.I considered that Plame might have been outed in part to cripple Iran intelligence--but I think they really believe that Iran is developing nuclear weapons. Also, the "evil genius" theory doesn't square with the utter incompetence of the Bush administration.

i agree with gary, here. this just sounds like incompetence, not malfeasance.

but if the administration really wants to destroy our country, they will, indeed, take us to war in Iran. but considering that would be political suicide for the Republicans, i doubt it's going to happen in the absence of another major terrorist attack.

More info on the Plame outing that's interesting is at AnythingYouSay.Blogspot.com
It suggests that Turkey is possibly involved, as well as our Ambassador to Turkey, Marc Grossman. We do live in interesting times.

My bad. Honestly, I'm not into flatulence. It's anythingtheysay, not anythingyousay. Sorry for the mistake. I guess between the Candy Barr pics and the outrageousness of this asshole administration's sinister and corrupt actions I got confused.
