Plamegate vs. Secret Prisons

DB may eat these words later, but a first knee-jerk reaction here is that the Washington Post's Dana Priest was right to go with her story about the secret prisons in Eastern Europe and would be right to protect her sources.

It's important to know what our government is doing in our names.

On the other hand, it was of no benefit whatsoever to learn that Valerie Plame was a covert agent. Zero. That wasn't whistleblowing, that was revenge.
