Plame Files Suit Against V.P.Cheney and Others

"These officials abused power for personal revenge, broke faith with their obligations as public servants to uphold and defend the Constitution. This remains a nation of laws and no administration official, however powerful, is above the law."
-Valerie Plame, former CIA Operative

Former CIA employee, Valerie Plame, along with her husband, former diplomat Joseph Wilson, has filed a law suit against, Vice President Dick Cheney, former Presidential top advisor, Karl Rove, and former vice presidential aide I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby. Plame and her husband, US former diplomat Joseph Wilson, charged in the lawsuit filed in Washington that Cheney and others conspired to leak her work at the CIA to strike back at Wilson for clashing with Bush's administration over the
Iraq war.

The case grew out of Wilson's allegations following the March 2003 invasion of Iraq that Bush and others had falsely claimed that Iraq had sought uranium in Niger for weapons programs.

The 23-page lawsuit alleges that Plame and Wilson "suffered a violation of rights guaranteed them under the United States Constitution and the laws of the District of Columbia."

The lawsuit accuses the administration officials, and 10 other unnamed persons, of embarking "on an anonymous 'whispering campaign'."

Despite what different things we may believe about the Plame case, can we all at least agree that Valerie is a Hottie?
