When Bushies blew a CIA cover, it was 'treason'; now, it's a mistake Published: May 29, 2014

Valerie Plame doesn't deny that blowing the cover of the CIA station chief in Afghanistan is a serious matter, says the Washington Examiner.

It's just that, discussing the issue at a Wednesday evening forum sponsored by The Atlantic, Plame seemed to view the outing of the CIA's top spy on the front lines in the Afghan war as more of an embarrassment than an outrage.

"My understanding is … it was a military aide who compiled this list of those that were greeting the president when he came," Plame said. "Colossally stupid, but I think it was inadvertent. It was an error … really stupid. The White House apparently has said that they're going to do an investigation, and they'll find someone who's really embarrassed at the end of it."
