And So It Ends
No indictment for Rove.
Not sure what to make of this. Liberal bloggers are already cranking up the spin machine, as are the conservative bloggers. Both, of course, according to their preconceptions.
But if Rove wasn't the source of the Plame leak, or the motivating force, or whatever relationship to it you happen to be looking for, then who was? Is there further action or investigation coming? I think this isn't quite as final an end as some are assuming.
Speaking of things ending, Bad Guy #1 in Iraq, al-Zarqawi, went to his long-overdue martyrdom last week. And it seems that a bonanza of intel was recovered from the location of the strike, as US and Iraqi forces launched a veritable blizzard of operations in the hours and days following the event. Reports are that lots of bad guys have been rounded up, shot up, blown up, and otherwise rendered combat ineffective.
But, of course, we're losing that war. Just read the papers.
