"This case is not just about what top government officials did to Valerie and me." Wilson said in a statement. "We brought this suit because we strongly believe that politicizing intelligence ultimately serves only to undermine the security of our nation."
Translation: "This case is about getting us more publicity and more money. And if we can use the Clintonian tactic of destroying the people who showed us to be the liars that we are, so much the better!"
"But there can be no serious dispute that the act of rebutting public criticism, such as that levied by Mr. Wilson against the Bush administration's handling of prewar foreign intelligence, by speaking with members of the press is within the scope of defendants' duties as high-level Executive Branch officials," (Judge) Bates said.
Translation: "When all evidence points to the fact that Mr. & Mrs. Plame are nothing more than lying publicity hounds, their targets have the right to defend themselves."
Of course, they'll appeal the verdict. As is normal with anyone on the Left, especially those with Bush Derangement Syndrome, they are somehow able to believe their own lies.
