How disappointing. Mark Felt leaked information about ongoing FBI investigations, and thus broke the law while retaining his position as the #2 man in the FBI. Whoever leaked the name of Valerie Plame and her role in Wilson's trip most likely broke no law, and was most likely a reporter. If the media had NOT reported about Plame, it would have been covering up a seriously important fact that the public had a right to know in order to properly weigh the trustworthiness of Joe Wilson. I think lots of reporters had this information for a long time, they knew Wilson lied in his NYT piece, they WERE covering it up because of their own agenda, and Bob Novak messed it all up when he wrote about it. Matt Cooper wrote a story that was clearly a fantasy based on nothing. There was no orchestrated campaign to "smear" Joe Wilson and his wife. A relevant fact about Joe Wilson and his trustworthiness was confirmed to reporters who already knew it. I really need somebody to tell me how this compares to Watergate!

Then you don't really understand Watergate.

This is its EXACT parallel. Thank God we dont have Democrat controlled Congress, or you would be having Impeachment hearings right now.

This is about a MSM Smear machine bent on destroying a President they Hate. Period.
