Impeach and Indict

The L.A. Times has a great round-up of the Valerie Plame/Joe Wilson scandal:

Underestimating the impact of Wilson's allegations was one in a series of misjudgments by White House officials.

In the days that followed, they would cast doubt on Wilson's CIA mission to Africa by suggesting to reporters that his wife was responsible for his trip. In the process, her identity as a covert CIA agent was divulged — possibly illegally.

For the last 20 months, a tough-minded special prosecutor, Patrick J. Fitzgerald, has been looking into how the media learned that Wilson's wife, Valerie Plame, was a CIA operative.

Top administration officials, along with several influential journalists, have been questioned by prosecutors.

Beyond the whodunit, the affair raises questions about the credibility of the Bush White House, the tactics it employs against political opponents and the justification it used for going to war.

Raises questions? I'm sick of the media still holding back their fire from these criminals. The fact is the White House LIED to the American people, are still smearing anyone who tries to expose those LIES, and are directly responsible for the death and destruction that has been unleashed. They deserve to be impeached and indicted--every one of them.
