Powerline’s Indictment Analysis: Up = Down

CREDIT:

More crackerjack analysis from our friend John Hinderaker on the right-wing blog Powerline:

Fitzgerald appears to have concluded that Plame was not, in fact, a covert agent…

Mr. Hinderaker has clearly been watching Fox News. But he hasn’t read Libby’s indictment very carefully. From page 3 of the indictment:

At all relevant times from January 1, 2002 through July 2003, Valerie Wilson was employed by the CIA, and her employment status was classified. Prior to July 14, 2003, Valerie Wilson’s affiliation with the CIA was not common knowledge outside the intelligence community.

Then again, everyone is entitled to an occasional mistake.
