Well my friend you fail to see the largest point, at the time Mark Felt did what he did, it was NOT against the law to "whistleblow" the FBI, CIA, or other government organizations.....I am not looking as Felt as a hero...he unlike Rove did perform a whistleblow option...should he had violated the law (if it was against the law in 71).
The law was put in place after Phillip Agee's book in 1975.....he may have been one of the primary reasons this law was created.....due to this book and what it may or may not have cost the US in national security assets..

Insights on Wilson's bookhttp://talkleft.com/new_archives/006279.html
Rove may have been a party in doing the following:
...outing a CIA operative (Plame was undercover its proven) - she was an asset of the CIA who wouldnt have filled out the criminal complaint if she was a secretary...or some clerk.....thats why we have a special prosceutor...because the complaint went to Ashcroft..who had to recuse himself...(gee wonder why)...and they had to go to Illinois to find this guy Fitzgerald who if he brings charges in..im buying a box of chocolates.
....helping provide information that destroyed a secret company of the CIA...Plame was a representative of Brewster Jennings and Company...a energy company created by the CIA (no the real Brewster Jennings had nothing to do with it)
..... lying to the grand jury (Remember Rove told everyone he had nothing to do with it but its clear now he was involved ...even if he turns out to not be the main criminal..hes still linked and still a liar...)
......and the real fun......Wilson was RIGHT....there are efforts to hurt Wilson but his report was right.....we know the other reports, 911, Dulfer, Senate, etc....all showed this Adminstration was wrong on the Iraq war....Wilson was just the first to stand up against the lies....and his wife paid for it..we know he told Chris Matthews that "Plame was fair game".....

I didnt bring up Clinton...conservatives always bring up clinton when the facts are presented to them...then they just blame clinton. I don't get my news from talking points...i don't have to prove that to you...but unlike you..who i believe probably hasnt done much than listen to Hannity and the latest GOP radio host or spin meister
No one died from Clinton's problem...look at all the blood shed from the war as well as the possible deaths from outing the participants in the CIA company Plame was a part of....who knows how many agents lives are on the line?

I know the truth hurts....but its ok...I know you don't have anything of value to share except insults.....real Americans try to stay informed...unlike you who choose to stay in the dark...when the wash comes in....im curious what you will say to this administration when its caught in a cover up and has damaged national security due to arrogance....if you care to put the facts down...then im ready to debate..but im sure you won't...its easier to insult and run...
