The Whole Story

Tom MacGuire, the man who has done the best reporting on the Plame/Libby story on his blog Just One Minute, has put together a comprehensive review of the whole affair. It is a not to be missed post.

While reading it, keep one thing in mind. The Beltway media has tried to sell this story as an administration conspiracy to discredit Joseph Wilson by "outing" his CIA wife. In retrospect, that story line appears now to be patently absurd.

At best, I'll never again read an article in a mainstream newspaper without a healthy dose of skepticism. At worst, I suspect the Washington media is now the most corrupt institution in contemporary America.
