With every move he makes, another chance he takes

Victoria Toensing is a Right-wing tool. She may have worshipped at the altar of honest über-conservative Barry Goldwater, and she may have obstructed, or written, the Intelligence Identities Protection Act, but she's still a tool as Henry Waxman shows today (via Crooks&Liars):

Here's the thing: Toensing bases her position on the Plame outing being just peachy-keen based on Plame having been in the US for 5 years, thus invalidating the criminal provisions of the aforementioned IIPA. But according to Plame (via BradBlog):

I was covert when my identity was outed. Worked in counter-proliferation division of CIA where most agents were also covert. I was covert, the status of my position was classified, I was working on WMD issues in Iraq. I traveled overseas during the five years prior to my being outed at which time my cover was blown, network destroyed along with my career path.
