Bill Maher let one fly on the betrayal of Valerie Wilson.  If you haven't seen it, you really should.  Especially the part where he calls the Bush Administration on their constant hyping of WMD threats around the globe — and the fact that this was exactly the issue that Valerie was working on, trying to keep the nation safe along with the rest of her network of CIA agents and assets in nations that pose threats to our nation.

In other words, the Bush Administration put their own CYA ahead of the safety of the rest of the United States when they outed Valerie.  As Maher says, even the mob doesn't go after people's families.
