Pipe up the band

The two voices on the tape are Bob Woodward and Richard Armitage.   Listen to hear how Valarie Plame was outed. 

Relevent transcript:

2:22 ARMITAGE: Yeah. And I know [ ] Joe Wilson’s
2:23 been calling everybody. He’s pissed off because he was
2:24 designated as a low-level guy, went out to look at it. So,
2:25 he’s all pissed off.

So calling a retired fourth rate diplomat a low-level guy gets a CIA employee revealed.   Vanity, thy name is Joe Wilson.


WASHINGTON (CNN) — Retired career diplomat Joseph Wilson said Sunday that he would to love to see whoever blew the cover on his wife as a CIA operative “frog-marched out of the White House.”

Wilson also said that he and his wife are concerned about their personal security because of the leak.

Outing his own wife was not a crime.  However it should make an interesting rebutal to the Wilson’s civil lawsuit.  I’d think it would make the basis for slander action by Karl Rove against Joe Wilson.
