This about sums up the entire Plame affair as far as I'm concerned:

Okay so the government official who leaked Plame's CIA status to Novak is known to Fitzgerald. He hasn't been charged. If Novak's version is to be believed, and I don't see why it shouldn't be, the initial leak wasn't some nefarious assault on Wilson, but an "inadvertant" mistake. So what, exactly, was the big deal? The CIA itself confirmed Plame's employment status. Where are the apologies? The whole thing was a big stupid nothing. I'm not saying by the way, the matter shouldn't have been investigated. Merely that the investigation revealed that the initial suspicions were unfounded.
