"Get your facts first, and then you can distort them as much as you please." (Mark Twain)
It would be shocking to find that the craven attack on Valerie Plame, as unprecedented and horrifying as it is, is merely a small part in a much bigger and more frightening story. Fact is, it looks more and more every day as though that is precisely the case. I strongly urge you to follow one or more of the writers teasing the truth from the Italian forgeries story (I've been relying mostly on Josh Marshall
, but there are others just as good) if you want some idea of how big this story actually is.
