    •  No, it was a pre-emptive effort. (none)
      What Joe Wilson revealed was immaterial since all the information was false.  What they were afraid of was that this was just a preliminary volley and that what was coming was the real stuff.

      I suspect that what Wilson was trying to do was derail them with the threat to go public with real information.  And what Bush/Cheney was doing was trying to short-circuit any revelations.  Since they themselves were in the habit of leaking classified information, they naturally suspected that's what Wilson and Plame had in mind.  So, they over-reacted and engaged in a cover-up which is going to expose their hand.
