Boo Frickin’ Who, someone call him a Whaaabulance! This from Saturday’s edition of the NYT:
“It was a terrible error on my part,” Mr. Armitage said in an interview, discussing his conversations with reporters. He added: “There wasn’t a day when I didn’t feel like I had let down the president, the secretary of state, my colleagues, my family and the Wilsons. I value my ability to keep state secrets. This was bad, and I really felt badly about this.”
Not bad enough not to let various parties be left swinging in the wind while “special” prosecutor FitzClown wasted tens of millions of tax dollars tracking down ghost conspiracies.
Oh and get this line the NYT has the audacity to print; “Mr. Armitage also confirmed what had long been speculated — that he was the anonymous government official who talked to Bob Woodward…” Long speculated by who? It damn sure wasn’t anyone in the employ of the Grey Lady. They’ve spent the best part of three years riding the Wilson pony for all its was worth and in the process leaving one of their own reporters to rot in jail for next to nothing.
