G, sometimes you just reap what you sow. I love ya, but you need to begin reading some of the resources we post, so you can answer your own questions.
Specs posted the answer up thread. READ G. Read!!!! That, and there is another thread around here that has the precise language of the Identity Protection Act. She was covert. I can't believe there would be this much debate over a simple thing like this. She was covert.
Instead of accepting she that she was covert, you and others make light of her service and pretend that her outing wasn't a serious matter. I suppose you need to do that in order to maintain the delusion that our government didn't just throw her to the wolves, but the truth remains--SHE WAS COVERT. What her covert-ness entailed is TOP SECRET, because [here it comes] she was covert.
If a soldier was given this kind of treatment from the government after having served in Iraq, I'm sure you would be able to see just how callous you sound. You [and others] make it all political. Make her sound like some secretary at Langley who never amounted to much at all in the CIA. Which is simply not the case.
While it is easy to take political swipes at her [it's all the rage now-a-days anyway], you all only come off as un-American and petty.
[side note] She must have been really good at what she did, because even after she was outed and the CIA confirmed her covert status, people still don't believe she was covert. It's a shame to lose that kind of agent]
