Brit Hume Suggests Valerie Plame Lied Under Oath

Well, someone had to say it.

It's simply not plausible that "some guy walked by [her] office" and told her to write up a memo suggesting her husband for the job.

And it's just not plausible she was "covert," in a legal or real sense. The woman began her duties working out of an embassy -- that's officially cover, not "non-official cover" or NOC.

Real covert spies do not work out of embassies. Everyone working in an embassy is suspected of being a spy until proven otherwise (and then they're still suspected, just less so). Everyone working in an embassy is photographed every few weeks by just about every intelligence service with a global reach in the world.

There are CIA officers working in the embassy, of course-- probably about a quarter to a third of its staff. And they are engaged in espionage. But "covert"? Please. They're not covert -- they've virtually got "SPY" written on their foreheads -- which is why they need diplomatic immunity to cover them.

Any "spy" who works out of an embassy is, in short, "burned" as a true covert agent for life. You can't put the toothpaste back into the tube.
