Plame was investigating Iran's WMDs

What does the outing of Valerie Plame have to do with the nuclear tinderbox in Iran? Maybe everything, writes Raw Story. When Scooter Libby or Dick Cheney or whoever in the White House blew Plame's cover, they apparently outed a woman who "was part of an operation tracking distribution and acquisition of weapons of mass destruction technology to and from Iran." Intelligence sources told the publication that identifying Plame "resulted in 'severe' damage to her team and significantly hampered the CIA's ability to monitor nuclear proliferation." And all for what? To punish Joe Wilson for not going along with a war just next door in Iraq?
