‘Fair Game,” the Movie – Revisiting the Iraq Invasion, Joe Wilson, Valerie Plame,

Remember Valerie Plame, Joe Wilson, and all the lies that were told by senior Bush Administration officails to try to cover up the trumped up basis for invading Iraq ? The story is retold in Fair Game, with a focus on the marriage of CIA agent Valerie Plame Wilson and her former ambassador husband, Joe Wilson. The movie is well done and powerful.

One caveat. Seeing the movie reinflames contempt for Dick Cheney, Karl Rove, Scooter, Fox "News,"and President Bush’s commutation of Scooter’s sentence.

I saw the movie yesterday after I took the Multistate Ethics Exam, and so was especially well-steeped in the ethical rules that are supposed to stop lawyers from lying. Hopefully Scooter stays disbarred forever. Wikipedia covers his various post-conviction ploys and disbarments.
