Another rebuke for the Wilson-Plame Family

Valerie Plame's lawsuit against members of the Bush administration was dismissed earlier today. She had accused VP Dick Cheney and others of conspiring to reveal her identity.

She claimed that the disclosure had violated her right to privacy and was an illegal form of revenge for her husband's criticism of the President.

[The Judge said] there was no legal basis for the suit... [he] sided with administration officials who said they were acting within their job duties... "...there can be no serious dispute that the act of rebutting public criticism, such as that levied by Mr. Wilson against the Bush administration's handling of prewar foreign intelligence, by speaking with members of the press is within the scope of defendants' duties as high-level Executive Branch officials...

The Judge's rebuke couldn't happen to a more fitting family of liars.

Ramirez gets the last word.
