Who’s outing who now?

Amazingly, this story is buried deep into Yahoo News in the Whitehouse section.

Mr. Smith came to Washington again Monday, as an alias for a Central Intelligence Agency officer who works covertly. Senators, however, may have blown his cover.

Committee Chairman Richard Lugar, R-Ind., and Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., both mentioned a name, Fulton Armstrong, that had not previously come up in public accounts of the intelligence flap.

It is not clear whether Armstrong is the undercover officer, but an exchange between Kerry and Bolton suggests that he may be.

The Left, including the MSM’s, would have us believe that Valerie Plame was purposely outed by the Bush admin, at least by innuendo. Yet here we have 2 Senators, one from each Party, saying the name of a CIA officer.

And, to be clear, despite the story giving no mention of the actual quote, Senator Lugar did mention Armstrongs name, and clearly indicated that he was "a national intelligence officer for Latin America at the NIC at the time."

Of course, not many in the media are carrying this story, at least that is easily findable. Not CNN, nor MSNBC and not the New York Times. Anyhow, why was the Committee stupid enough to have his name in the transcript? You could see it coming a mile away. I have to give it to the Washington Post: they edited Armstrong’s name out of the story.
