Plame Blame Game Suit

Joe Wilson and Valerie Plame announced their civil suit today against Vice President Cheney, White House aide Karl Rove, and former VP Chief of Staff Scooter Libby.

"I and my former CIA colleagues trusted our government to protect us as we did our jobs. That a few reckless individuals within the current administration betrayed that trust has been a grave disappointment to every patriotic American." --Valerie Plame has video from MSNBC's coverage.

What are their chances?

We know someone in the White House leaked her identity as a CIA agent.

Back in the 1990s, top members of the Clinton administration leaked to the press information about Linda Tripp's arrest at the age of 19 for shoplifting.

The goverment eventually settled out of court -- agreeing to pay Ms Tripp $595,000 for violating her privacy. (crooksandliars)
