Clarice Feldman writes an excellent analysis of the meaning of Novak's revelations concerning his involvement in the Plame matter.
As this saga continues to unfold it is becoming apparent that it will provide scenes for the upcoming box office blockbuster "Bureaucracies Gone Wild" scheduled for release over the next two years. The film will star the CIA, the DoJ (with the FISA court leading), the DoD (cameo appearance), the FBI and the DoS. The plot involves the active effort to subvert the policies of those elected to govern by the faceless mandarins who have forgotten the original purpose for which their fiefdoms were established. Not much sex and violence (except to the Constitution) but treachery in abundance.
