He knew. No doubt about it. He may be a vicious thug, but he's no dumbass. That means he told Libby she was covert.
...on July 12, 2003--six days after Wilson published his op-ed--Libby apparently discussed with Cheney what he should say to reporters, particularly Matt Cooper, about the Wilson imbroglio. The indictment does not disclose what Cheney said to Libby at this point. But the next day, Libby confirmed for Cooper that Wilson's wife worked at the CIA.Hmmmm... OK, wingers, explain that one.
I'll help you out. Dick Cheney told Scooter Libby to attack Joe Wilson by telling reporters that his wife worked for the CIA. There's a word for that: treason. Those of us who didn't shove our heads up our asses after 9/11 know what went on. And we know that these people don't really give a shit about National Security. They care about their narrow, neo-con agenda for spreading the military industrial complex into the energy and weapons centers of the whole damn world. And if someone like Joe Wilson dared get in their way, they were going to do everything they could to seriously fuck with him.
Well, payback's a bitch, motherfuckers. See you in court.
