Tears for unanswered prayers

Juan Cole on Plame suing the Cheney gang:

It is a ruling about the jurisdiction of the court and so something technical in the law about which I don't feel qualified to comment. Just as a citizen, I cannot understand how committing what was essentially an act of treason (or trying very hard to) can be seen as part of the ordinary political duties of incumbents.

If I had a career which involved doing good stuff for my Country and in this case the World, I'd be pretty cheesed if some megalomaniac ruined it.
