Random Liberals

We are random liberals (who knew?). Collectively, we make up the greatest blog in the history of ourselves. We will blog about anything that suits us; mostly politics, with a little bit of religion and randomness to make the blog exciting.

Bob Novack

This guy is unbelievable, literally and as a figure of speech.

| "Two government officials have told the FBI that conservative columnist
| Robert Novak was asked specifically not to publish the name of undercover
| CIA operative Valerie Plame in his now-famous July 14 newspaper column.
| The two officials told investigators they warned Novak that by naming Plame
| he might potentially jeopardize her ability to engage in covert work, stymie
| ongoing intelligence operations, and jeopardize sensitive overseas sources."

Here is the full article.

Why does Bob Novack still have a job? The media seem to have forgotten about him in their zeal to nail the Bush administration. While that is an admirable goal, we must remember that if not for Novack, this would not be an issue. In all likelyhood, he knew that he was breaking the law in releasing Valerie Plame's name, but he did it anyway. He seems to have done it out of sheer spite. There's no other reason that I can think of for him to release her name.
