It seems mighty coincidental that Wilson, Berger, Dana Priest's husband, McCarthy, the ever popular Larry Johnson, Richard Clark just to name 6 all ended up advising Kerry in the 2004 campaign.
That web of individuals all had either something derogatory to say about the conduct of intelligence operations by the Bush administration, or tried to make sure no bad information surfaced about such operations during the Clinton administration.
I would be surprised if a task force were not exploring evidence of a conspiracy to undermine the CIA and defense department prosecution of the war on terror.
Fitz's investigation has for some reason not delved into the problems occasioned by the Wilson disinformation campaign, and his connection with the Kerry campaign while conducting it.
Maybe (dare we hope) that is because the ol' poker player is biding his time while a trusted Justice Department group is investigating this angle.
Maybe the McCarthy firing is the beginning of the dropping of the other shoe.
