Don't let the truth stand in the way of your witch hunt.

You have to love the House Democrats, they want to bring down Vice President Dick Cheney so badly, they won't take yes for an answer. They want to get to the bottom of who leaked the identity of the supposed 'undercover' CIA employee Valerie Plame. Now that Scott 'I have a book to sell' McClellan is in good standing with the left, Nancy Pelosi and the gang on the Hill want to know what he knows.

To all those who want to impeach Cheney and think he is the Devil incarnate, I will spell this out for you, if you want to know who first leaked Valarie Plame's name to Robert Novak. It was R-I-C-H-A-R-D A-R-M-I-T-A-G-E.

Its a fact, you can look it up. Yes, it was former Clinton pal and under Secretary of State, Richard Armitage who told the world about Joe Wilson's wife.

He watched as Scooter Libby was thrown under the bus by the press who smelled blood and hoped Libby would turn on his boss Cheney, all the while knowing he was the one who identified Plame as a working for the CIA.

Nevertheless, it now appears that the person most responsible for the end of Ms. Plame's CIA career is Mr. Wilson. Mr. Wilson chose to go public with an explosive charge, claiming -- falsely, as it turned out -- that he had debunked reports of Iraqi uranium-shopping in Niger and that his report had circulated to senior administration officials. He ought to have expected that both those officials and journalists such as Mr. Novak would ask why a retired ambassador would have been sent on such a mission and that the answer would point to his wife. He diverted responsibility from himself and his false charges by claiming that President Bush's closest aides had engaged in an illegal conspiracy.
Why don't they call Armitage up to the stand and ask him how he can sleep at night?
