  •  The New York Time's reaction? (none)
    the only mention of this little problem is in John Tierney's editorial "A Very Special Scandal" (where is the crime). I don't have it online, but to quote:

    "The lesson for the public would be to stop appointing special prosecutors. The job can turn a reasonable lawayer into an inquisitor with the zeal of Captain Ahab - even more zeal, actually, because he'll keep hunting even after he learns there is no whale. He'll settle for anything else he can scare up."  and

    "Unless Fitzgerald comes up with something unexpected, neither (as in the Clinton affair) is Nadagate. For now, it looks as if the outing of Valerie Wilson was done by officials who didn't think it was illegal and believed they were replying truthfully to a partisan who had smeared them. Hardball politics isn't pretty, but it's not criminal, either..."

    With this editorial, the Times has shoveled their already shaky reputation into the dung-heap of journalism.

    I see nothing at night.

    •  Fitzgerald isn't a "special" (none)
      prosecutor, is he?

      He's a prosecutor working under the Justice Dept.  But I didn't think he was a "special."

      though lord knows, he's special to me. :o)
