Rove Looking at Possible Jail Time for That Thing About the Lady Whose Husband Did Something then Told Everyone it was a Secret or Something

High profile case tests limits of something about people who talk about things that may or may not have happened and/or may have been secret or not secret at some time.

I realize this post may have come across as flippant and uncaring.

For the record, I am sure this case is very serious and very important or the press would have nothing to do with it.

Very serious.

IAEA, ElBaradei Share Nobel Peace Prize

Mohamed ElBaradei and International Atomic Energy Agency, the nuclear watchdog agency he heads, won the 2005 Nobel Prize for Peace today.

The Norwegian Nobel Committee called ElBaradei "an unafraid advocate" for nuclear nonproliferation "at a time when the threat of nuclear arms is again increasing."

As the recipient of what many consider the world's most prestigious award, ElBaradei joins a pantheon that includes Woodrow Wilson, Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela, the Dalai Lama, Jimmy Carter, Mother Teresa, and a host of agencies connected, like the IAEA, with the United Nations, including the United Nations itself and Secretary General Kofi Annan.

Analysis -
Right Sees Miers as Threat to a Dream

If there has been a unifying cause in American conservatism over the past three decades, it has been a passionate desire to change the Supreme Court. When there were arguments over tax cuts and deficits, when libertarians clashed with religious conservatives, when disputes over foreign policy erupted, reshaping the judiciary bound the movement together.

Until Monday, that is. Now conservatives are in a roiling fight with the White House over President Bush's nomination of White House counsel Harriet Miers to the high court. They fear that the president may have jeopardized their dream of fundamentally shifting the court by nominating someone with no known experience in constitutional issues rather than any one of a number of better-known jurists with unquestioned records.

Where have you been, Ray? We've missed your contrarian wit and at times, lunacy.

You're right. Maybe I don't understand this whole Rove/Plame/Wilson/Libby/Miller deal.

It's somewhat confusing. You know, like stuffing secret documents into your tighty whities is a bit of a legal/ethical grey area.

The judith miller thing is pretty weird -- why WAS she in jail??

Yes, a prominent Democrat and national security advisor did place materials in his panties...
At least he was held accountable (Bush will probably give a medal to the guys who leaked the info. on the CIA agent):

WASHINGTON, Sept. 8 (UPI) -- Former National Security Adviser Samuel Berger has been fined $50,000 for removing and destroying copies of classified documents from the National Archives.

I did some research on the Rove thing, and as it turns out, somebody who may or may not have said something to somebody, as it turns out, did not say anything about the wife of someone or other, so as it turns out, no one need be worried that someone may have done something. Whew! I'd been sweatin' that one out, too.
