The BBC finally did a story
today on the Valerie Plame investigation without asserting as undisputed fact that the leak of her employment with the CIA was a federal crime. As I have already noted
, every other time it has written on this story it has casually claimed that the leak was a criminal act, a "fact" which is in much doubt.
Three cheers for the BBC for finally getting it right on this story. (Although it still has not mentioned the hysterical role the New York Times itself played in calling for the very investigation that it now thinks is unjustified.)
