There's an even bigger story in here though. The reason they tried to trash Joe Wilson: the attempt to silence the leaks coming from the CIA. These leaks were undermining the Bush Administrations line of lies about why there were no weapons of mass destruction. It is proof that they lied us into war.
More after the fold....
This entire scandal is laying this effort bare, but we're so consumed with the treason involved, the cover-up, and the chance to "get" Karl Rove, we're missing the biggest prize: impeachment.
Judith Miller's testimony shows the effort to discredit Joe Wilson began in June, 2003. It's intent was to cover their tracks on the twisted intelligence. This proves they intentionally fixed the intelligence around the policy. It proves INTENT. It proves they lied the country into war.
This is an even bigger story, and we're missing it. This is the basis for impeaching Bush. A recent poll showed 50% of Americans would support impeachment if Bush intentionally misled us into war in Iraq. Folks, this is the Holy Grail. This is the smoking gun. Let's pursue the treason charges, but as an aside to the bigger issue.
