Discussing This Karl RovE/Plame Thing With A Repug Friend....
Advertisements [?]
I was looking for an analogy. So I came up with the following:

What if your significant other was in the military and in Iraq or Afghanistan. What if they were on a secret mission to locate WMD or insurgents, etc. Now what if somebody (another GI, politician, reporter) indicated that this was going down and put the mission in jeopardy and maybe your significant other was put in danger or killed - what would you think? What if this person did this to get back at you for something?

I likened this to what Rove did to Plame/Wilson.

I also brought up the Geraldo Rivera incident during the initial battles
in Iraq - when Geraldo drew out a map on the ground and was criticized for potentially giving out this units' position. He received a great deal of heat from the Administration as I recall.

Anyway - these examples seemed to help get the message across as to the seriousness of what Rove has done to Plame/Wilson and ultimately the American people and the 'war on terrorism'/'search for WMD'.

Just curious fellow DU'ers - is this something useful?
