WHY PLAME LEAK IS RELEVANT TO DOWNING STREET MEMO SCANDAL

The investigation of the Valerie Plame leak and the lies that Plame's husband exposed regarding Saddam seeking uranium from Africa are relevant to Downing Street.

We all know that the Bush Administration had plans to go to war against Iraq before 9-11. The lies that Plame's husband revealed created serious wrinkles in the Bush Administration's plans to deceive the American public into going to war in Iraq.

Once the person(s) responsible for leaking Plame's name are brought to justice the people will realize that some of those Republican insiders do not work for the interests of the American people, but instead work for their own interests in controlling this country for their own selfish reasons (profits from oil, corporate tax breaks, etc.).

Once the person(s) responsible for the Plame leak are brought to justice, the credibility of the right wing will be further weakened. Once this happens, we on the left need to hammer Downing Street Memo and link the two issues together and see to it that the media does its job in making Downing Street an issue.

The whole WMD lie was the basis for Bush's justification for going to war, and is tied to Downing Street. It's what convinced 65% of America that war against Iraq was a necessity.

WHETHER VALERIE PLAME WAS COVERT AT THE TIME OF THE LEAK SHOULD NOT BE THE ISSUE

Wilson called Bush on his lies, and now his wife is out of a job and the work our CIA has done on protecting us from rogue nations with WMDs has been compromised.
Regardless of the right wing arguing that Valerie Plame was not "covert" at the time of the leak, the leakers broke the law by leaking her name.

Plame was a covert CIA operative at some point in her career. As a result of the leak of Plame's name, the work of the CIA on protecting the world from rogue nations with WMDs has been compromised, because those countries can go back and retrace Plame's steps, who she worked with, who she had meetings with, her telephone conversations, mail, etc.

And the Republicans aren't getting anywhere arguing about whether Cheney sent Joe Wilson to Africa. This is another diversion tactic by the right wing, sidestepping the issue that the work our CIA was doing to protect us from terrorists was compromised by Republican insiders. The fact is, Wilson went to Africa and found that none of the lies Bush told to us during his January 2003 State of the Union Address were true.

And there's no need in denying that the Democrats going after Rove is about politics. Of course it's about politics!! It became an issue of politics when George Bush decided to declare war on a country based on lies!
