CIA Meddling in Domestic Politics?

I had meant to link to this WSJ OpEd piece by Victoria Toensing about the CIA's role in the entire Plame affair. (When Ms. Toensing was deputy assistant attorney general in the Reagan administration, she was the primary author of the law making it a crime to knowingly disclose the identity of a covert CIA agent.) Read the whole thing, but here is her conclusion:

The CIA conduct in this matter is either a brilliant covert action against the White House or inept intelligence tradecraft. It is up to Congress to decide which.

This piece had originally appeared in the WSJ on Thursday, but was added to the open access Opinion Journal this morning. Hat tip to Glenn Reynolds for highlighting the link.
