And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. - John 8:32
There is no doubt that the Bush Cheney neo-con cabal believes in an unfettered marketplace. Certainly, in the case of selling a war to Congress and the public, they believe in a marketplace, though one unfettered by truth.
Which is why, when selling the war in Iraq, and with an eye to the distant but upcoming war against Iran, Valerie Plame Wilson had to go.
Valerie Plame Wilson was working on counter-proliferation of nuclear arms in Iraq and Iran until she was outed by someone in the White House. When her cover was blown, so was the entire "brass-plate" cover operation she worked for - Brewster-Jennings.
With the destruction of Brewster-Jennings, so went the career of a key player in the CIA's human intelligence apparatus, her value investigating nuclear programs in the Middle East went with it also. -- This, more than revenge against Joe Wilson, appears to be exactly what the neo-con cabal in the White House wanted.
