Vallely update.

By

Joseph A. Wilson IV has threatened to sue General Paul Vallely unless he retracts his statement that in 2002 Wilson told him (while they shared a green room at Fox) that his wife was a CIA agent. Vallely stands by his statement:

Vallely said, citing CIA colleagues, that in addition to his conversations with Wilson, the ambassador was proud to introduce Plame at cocktail parties and other social events around Washington as his CIA wife. "That was pretty common knowledge," he said Friday. "She's been out there on the Washington scene many years."
If Plame were a covert agent at the time, Vallely said, "he would not have paraded her around as he did." "This whole thing has become the biggest non—story I know," he concluded, "and all created by Joe Wilson." Joseph Wilson and Valerie Plame in July 2005 issue of Vanity Fair magazine.

UPDATE: John Batchelor, at Redstate.org, thinks that Wilson in panicking, and demands that the CIA makle a referral to DoJ for Wilson outing his wife within the 5 year post—covert status limit on disclosure.

I certainly want to see Wilson put under oath.
