“the harm that is done when a CIA cover is blown is grave” . . . “breaches of national security endangered CIA officers, it has jeopardized and even destroyed entire networks of foreign agents” . . . “lives are literally at stake”Well, it now appears that Hillary Clinton, in an e-mail exchange with close friend, Sydney Blumenthal, has essentially done the same thing by outing the classified name of a CIA operative in Libya. As expressed by a former CIA lawyer on MSNBC, the consequences of this are grave:
We already know that Sydney Blumethal's emails were hacked. Thus, that CIA operative's name is already out there. If Hillary's private email server was also hacked, that person's name may also be in the hands of another foreign government and his/her life might already be in danger.
So, where are all the outraged Democrats that wanted to have Bush's head over the outing of Plame? Their silence simply proves how politically motivated the whole Plame affair was.
