Is coming nearer on the path.

The Plame Game

With the grand jury's term ending October 28, it's indictment season (baby!). What, exactly, Special Prosecutor Fitzgeral intends to do is anyone's guess, but Hilzoy uses the occasion of a Washington Post article suggesting that the inquiry is zeroing in the Office of the Vice President (whether Cheney or his top staffers is unclear), and, drawing from a couple of sources, offers an incisive account of how the outing of Valerie Plame was the worst sort of sandbox treachery. I urge you to read it, and the sources from which Hilzoy draws.

UPDATE: I'm just thinking out loud here, but is it possible that Karl Rove is powerful enough to make Cheney a fall guy? Just wondering . . . .

UPDATE 2: Apparently I've been working too hard, because I'm kind of behind on this whole thing. For more glib discussion, and more sourcing on the Cheney angle, check out Wonkette, TPM, or -- shiver -- the New York Daily News.
