Dick Cheney emerges as source of retaliations

Both the Washington Post and The New York Times are carrying lengthy accounts of how Vice President Dick Cheney led the charge to go after critics of the war on Iraq. The accounts find that Cheney was particularly obsessed with former ambassador Joseph C. Wilson's account of the way the country was misinformed on Iraq's quest for nuclear weapons. Wilson's wife, Valerie Plame Wilson, was outed as a CIA undercover operative, and many observers believe it was in retaliation for Wilson's ciriticism of the war on Iraq.

While Cheney's chief of staff "Scooter" Libby has been indicted on charges stemming from misinformation he gave to a grand jury, the real question of who leaked Valerie Plame's name has not been uncovered. Whoever did the actual betrayal, Cheney seems more and more like the motive force behind it.
