The Plame Affair: A Prognostication

So, the Plame affair was much ado about nothing. Richard Armitage was the "primary" leaker, Special Prosecutor Fitzgerald knew it all along, and abused his 'prosecutorial discretion' by continuing his investigation for nearly two more years.

Sorry, I'm not buying.

1) This is the latest attempt to bury the Plame matter, although the Plame investigation really has not been in the news much of late.

2) It is also an attempt to discredit Fitzgerald, who has previously been mostly praised even by the President.

3) Conclusion: something is coming that the Bush administration will not like, which can really only mean another indictment. Cheney?

I have to agree. There is something very fishy going on here. We may never know what, but something weird is up. From day one, Fitzgerald has been painted as this gloriously hard-ass prosecutor that no one would want up their ass.

More than a few have expressed doubts early on that that was true, that Fitzgerald was called in to convey an appearance of due diligence, and that nothing serious would really come out. At this point, it seems hard to believe that much more will come of this and I can't see Rove giving up Cheney, as has been suspected.
And really, why bring up the Armitage story apropos of nothing? The Plame thing had more or less evaporated from the media's vision. Unless, the Armitage smoke screen was thought to be one way of diffusing one lingering issue before the election. Certainly, the turds at WaPo and NY Times bought it, as they usually do.

The whole thing reeks.
