But of course

Over at The Cornered, Jonah Pantload hopes out loud this morning that Wilson gets some Fitzmas indictments along with Scoots and Turdie. Although this is so lame that even his cobloggers can't back his play (are you listening, Ruppert?), he does get some sympathy from Stephen Spruiell, who comments

Hi Jonah, Sorry. I had that wishful thinking too. But the Senate Select Intelligence Committee report reveals that: "DO officials told Committee staff that they promised the former ambassador that they would keep his relationship with CIA confidential, but did not ask the former ambassador to do the same and did not ask him to sign a confidentiality or non-disclosure agreement" (p. 41). So Wilson was never obligated to keep his trip a secret, although if leaking his wife's name is a crime he should be indicted for ensuring it would happen when he wrote his op-ed. Oh, and if lying to reporters was a crime he'd be sharing a cell with Bubba already.

Blame the victim. A tried and true approach for the law-n-order crowd.

Actually, it occurs to me that Spruiell (inadvertently, I'm sure) offers a concise characterization of the assministration's ethics: "If you write a critical editorial, they will smear you and your family." Stephen presumably will not be on the defense's witness list for a civil rights trial...
