A Timeline in Pictures
Juan Cole has posted a brilliant timeline of the whole bogus-reports-of-yellowcake-in-Niger to outing-an-undercover-CIA-operative episode - with pictures. With yesterday's revelations that former Chief of Staff to the Vice President Scooter Libby was authorized to leak classified information, it's good to have this reminder of what the root of the matter really is - we were lied into a war. Outing an undercover CIA agent, while obviously dangerous and potentially life-threatening (not to mention highly illegal), is only the cherry on top of this disaster sundae.
