Will this movie include details of Robert Novak's disclosure and his testimony that the 'leak' was not arranged by the Bush administration? Why was Libby prosecuted for something that everyone knew Novak originated?

What about Clinton's stacking of the CIA with liberal democrats?

Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?

I would like to say I'm shocked at the Daily News hatchet job in this story, but I'm not.

1st, let's just say there is no way to prove or disprove anything that Valerie Plame and Joe Wilson say, because that information is classified. What is known is that Plame (as was reported at the time) had not been in the "field" for well over five (5) years, so she was not considered covert! As for Joe Wilson, he reportedly is well known in DC circles for his over indulgence, and for embellishing his own importance!

2nd, it is also well known that Richard Armitage, a Democrat, is the one that "outed" Plame, not Karl Rove, Dick Cheney, or "Scooter" Libby. However, Armitage was never held to answer for the outing...which in any reasonable mind would beg the question of does this sound like a serious breach, or more like a "get GW anyway we can" kind of story?

3rd, the Daily News, like most of the liberal MSM, deliberately left out that the special prosecutor in the case, Fitzgerald, did not charge Libby with anything to do with the outing of Plame....Libby was convicted of lying to federal agents on four minor details, which very well could have been nothing more than a lapse of memory.

Yes folks, again the MSM has shown that they can not relate the facts as they really happened....instead they would rather wait to put out a story when they think peoples memories of the specifics in a situation are blurry.

Who can take this situation, or this hack job of a movie seriously with that whack job Sean Penn as one of the actors? Please, this is just another attempt to re-write history, and an attempt by the MSM to try and play it that Republicans are really really bad guys and can't be trusted. What a bunch of fools!!!

Shame on you Daily News....this is a reason so many people no longer buy your rag, nor do they trust what you print!

Maybe it was those liberal democrats who couldn't find any evidence of WMD's,so Cheney spent a week in the cia till he "found" evidence of WMD's.

I guess I could just say a Republican Administration sent an army to war over WMD's,and no WMD's were found."Iraqi Freedom" didn't begin till no WMD's were found and "Iraqi Freedom"was not the arguement presented to the UN as a reason for the war.That makes it an unjust war and those responsible for it are war criminals.I know you're gonna say that it was passed by a majority of the Dems in the house and senate but it was the Rep doing the convincing.I never could understand why we were pouring all this into Iraq,when the bad guys were getting away in Afghanistan.

Not sure where you've been hiding but WMD have been found in Iraq.
