Plame plans to sue White House officials


WASHINGTON, Oct. 20 (UPI) -- Joseph Wilson and his wife, Valerie Plame are preparing to file a civil suit against Bush administration officials.

Plame was the covert CIA agent allegedly unmasked by the White House. Now she is preparing to file a civil lawsuit against the Bush administration officials who may have disclosed her identity and scuttled her career, Salon.com reported Thursday.

"There is no question that her privacy has been invaded. She was almost by definition the ultimate private person," said the couple's attorney, Christopher Wolf.

Wolf said the couple would make a final decision on filing a lawsuit after special prosecutor Patick Fitzgerald has completed his investigation, Salon said.

If they do sue, Wilson and Plame could be the first litigants to depose senior White House officials since Paula Jones, an employee of the state of Arkansas, sued President Bill Clinton.

Fitzgerald must decide whether or not to return indictments by Oct. 28, the day the grand jury investigating the leak of Plame's name to the press is scheduled to be dismissed. Democrats in Congress have requested a report from Fitzgerald on his findings but legal observers say he is under no obligation to provide one if he decides that no crimes were committed.

Dick Cheny is one of the slickest thieves to be vice president. Not since "Spiro" Agnew was collecting bribes in the Nixon Whitehouse has mafia style corruption dominated the vice presidency. But, like most gangsters that have the FBI/CIA/NSA working to hide their criminal activities look for Cheney to come out of all of these problems "Smelling like a rose!"

Bush's Minister-of-War & Pestilence Don Rumsfeld? Here's another WAR CRIMINAL cut from the same cloth as Robert McNamara that should be sitting at The Hague waiting for Slobadon's Milosevic's trial to end so he can have his own trial and quick hanging.

As the tidbits and cookie crumbs re: the famous Plame case, fall onto the "public green" the speculation that these liars, thieves, conspirators, Bush's women, (Harriet, Babs 'let 'em eat cake' Bush, matalin, Coulter, Scott McClellan (imagine him with a wig and fawning smile), Rove (same with Rove)...might all be grabbing attorneys (and their ankles) very soon.

It is almost too much for words.

You go girl!
