A whole complex range of wrong-doing

Josh Marshal, Talking Points Memo:

It's always been more or less an open secret who the perps are in this case [the Plame case disclosure of the name of a working CIA agent]. And they're very high-level folks -- people with deep influence of the formulation and implementation of policy. And the wrong-doing here is directly related to the execution of policy. So if a crime was committed, and if an indictment is forthcoming, it will bring under scrutiny a whole complex range of wrong-doing (though not necessarily criminal wrongdoing) relating to administration war policy and intelligence manipulation and other stuff we can go into at a later date.

Ummmm, This is the lately-just-been-outed CIA agent whose husband
has been making the talk show rounds discussing how disgraceful it was
that his outed wife was outed and was just in a Vanity Fair mag spread
along with same husband and posed disguised with a scarf and dark
glasses for the picture spread, right?
Remind me, this covert agent was last working covertly when?

She was covert for years in Africa and the Middle East -- and apparently quite productive -- until President Bush's minions outed her to distract attention from their earlier misbehaviour.

Revealing an intelligence operative, who is working outside the US, during "wartime". Dirty trick? or Treason?
