Question

Okay, so, maybe it’s a bit premature to ask this while I can still see the fan blades, but how the HELL was a no-nonsense, straight-arrow hardass mob prosecutor like Fitzgerald allowed anywhere near Plamegate?

Did they think they had committed the perfect crime (or that no-one would care), or have we been suckered by The Mother Of All Ratfucks?

    I’ve wondered that myself. I’m hoping that someone with a secret axe to grind made the recommendation and convinced the WH (wrongly, I hope) that Fitzgerald would play ball.

    They wouldn’t have asked anyone in the CIA for a recommendation, right?

    I remember reading about how the folks in Chicago wanted him out of IL and he ended up being pulled for this. I wish I could find that link again, but I think it was a Rovian idea (probably b/c they realized the loopholes in the protection of identities act would protect them from indictment for it).
