Why isn't he on MSNBC talking about this?
On KCRW, Left, Right and Center, Tony Blankley tried to use the new trick of Valeri not being an active operative in the CIA by using Joe WIlson's Wolf Blitzer segment. Lawrence O'Donnell corrects Blankley by making the obvious point that Valeri Plame had to be an operative or else there would be no case:
Heres what I think is definitive on this question. Patrick Fitzgerald has represented to the courts that he is pursuing a serious, national security, criminal violation. It seems to me in this grand jury, witness number one -- and Tony youve been a prosecutor, you know how they assemble cases -- witness number one would have been a CIA administrator who comes in and testifies about how Valerie Plame does indeed fit the laws requirements. Because if witness number one doesnt do that successfully for the prosecutor, there is absolutely no reason to call witness number two, because there is no crime to investigate.
Yeah--well--I mean--thats one way to approach it.
Blankley acts like an ass, and O'Donnell once again corrects him saying that any witness can walk out of the that grand jury and tell you exactly every question they asked and every question they gave.
