Plame Criticizes Bush, Media for Leak Scandal

A Bush scandal that won't go away:
Four years after her CIA cover was blown in a newspaper column, Valerie Plame is settling scores with the Bush administration, Republican lawmakers and the journalists involved in the White House leak scandal.

Plame writes about the leak, the fallout and the perjury trial of former White House aide I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby in her memoir, “Fair Game: My Life as a Spy, My Betrayal by the White House.” The book is to be released Monday, but The Associated Press purchased it early.

She offers harsh words for President Bush, whom she assails for administration “arrogance and intolerance.” She also said criticism of her husband, former Ambassador Joseph Wilson, was a “dress rehearsal” for the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth effort that impugned Sen. John Kerry’s war record during his failed presidential campaign in 2004.
