It wasn't until I actually read the [un-redacted] conclusions of the Senate report on pre-war intelligence that I heard there was significant doubt about the memo saying Plame had any role in Wilson's trip.
Now, thanks to Media Matters, this doubt is back in plain view.
Here's my take [purely speculative, but I'm good at "through-the-looking-glass"]: Fitzgerald's enthusiasm stems from the fact that he suspects the original yellowcake forgeries were perpetrated by Cheney's fake Intel cell, run by Feith and Libby (Seymour Hersch was all over these cats in The New Yorker). Once there was a danger that these forgeries might be traced to Cheney they set out to smear Wilson and warn other Agency/Intel cats off the case, and forged the Plame memo suggesting that she sent Wilson in the first place.
Heh. Fitzgerald indicts Cheney, Rove, Libby, Feith, Fleischer (who probably said--"fuck this shit, I'm quitting before it gets much hairier out here!" and resigned) for obstruction of justice, perjury, and TREASON. Does it get to Bush? Does the shitstorm happen in time for the '06 elections?
