Missing the real outrage about Valerie Plame

Published

on

Earlier today, our boring Thursday got jolted by a reappearance from former United States spy Valerie Plame Wilson. On Twitter.

The one great thing about social media? It reveals so easily, what others try so hard to conceal.

As you might know by now, Valerie Plame’s bird droppings via Twitter would not, um, end well.

So that tweet started it. The surprise and backlash were predictable.

But the problem was that Plame, infamously outed as an American covert operative in 2003, forgot Lesson One of Crisis Management.

Namely: When you’re in a hole, STOP DIGGING!

So here goes with Excuse One (which Plame so thoughtfully numbered so as to foreshadow the excuses AND to indicate that, oh boy, did she really step in it!)

And Two: the I-Can’t-Be-Anti-Semitic-Because-I-Am-A-Jew Defense

But really…who misspells “descent”?

Here goes Three and the start of Excuse Four, in one tweet, don’t miss them, because Four isn’t a defense, it’s a Wait-You-Really-Oughta-Read-This-Garbage!

And the rest of Four follows

just erasing all doubt that Plame intended every bit of the original tweet.

Plame just demonstrated why the first rule of criminal defense for perps is: Shut The Hell Up!

The outrage here? It’s that someone so clueless in judgment to write this got into America’s foreign relations field corps.

But it gets even worse, because Plame can’t shut up, so she decides to dig out of the hole. But it’s too late. Like years too late.

But this “undercurrent” wasn’t just a one-time flirt with Jew-hatred. She’s been swimming in those currents for years.

The Internet never forgets, folks. And if there’s anyone in America more in need of deleting their Twitter account than @ValeriePlame, I can’t tell you who that would be.

I grieve for the intelligence community.
