Plame Out in one easy lesson

From The Independent:

Rovegate: The scandal that lays bare the cynicism behind Bush's war in Iraq

This tacky, third-rate leak that is starting to scar the President's second term springs from the great deception executed in his first term, luring the US into a war that 60 per cent of Americans now believe was misconceived.

That is the true scandal, which has yet to be properly explained.
Nothing much new here for those who have been following events closely, but a nice, concise piece summarizing and contextualizing Plamegate from a paper that doesn't give an armadillo's ass about maintaining "access." Give a copy to mom when she asks you what you think happened to that poor girl down in Aruba.
