If Patrick Fitzgerald is on the up-and-up, he'd put this witch on the stand under oath.

Cheney's mouthpiece Mary Matalin is still spreading the lie that Valerie Plame wasn't a covered CIA agent. [See transcript of Patrick Fitzgerald's press conference of 10/28/05, "...she was a CIA officer from January 1st, 2002, forward.

Howard Fineman, you'll pardon the expression, weighs in:
Matalin's style (dogged determination in demanding to have the last word stand as the position of record, no matter how false) is the formula for the Bush-Cheney offensive in getting their agenda realized.

Everyone involved will walk or be pardoned without the American people ever knowing the full extent of the conspiracy to commit this nation to a drastic shift in foreign and military policy, and chronic state of war.
