 Former CIA officers speak out against Rove

Via Crooks and Liars, eleven former CIA Officers speak out and set the record straight:
The disclosure of Ms. Plame’s name was a shameful event in American history and, in our professional judgment, may have damaged U.S. national security and poses a threat to the ability of U.S. intelligence gathering using human sources. Any breach of the code of confidentiality and cover weakens the overall fabric of intelligence, and, directly or indirectly, jeopardizes the work and safety of intelligence workers and their sources... The fact is that there are thousands of U.S. intelligence officers who "work at a desk" in the Washington, D.C. area every day who are undercover.

What bugs me about all the indignation over what Rove et al did or didn't do is that it sounds like they were responding to Wilson's decision to go public. If he, knowing his wife is CIA, chooses to imply that Cheney was behind his mission to Niger, then he should expect that the truth of how his name came up would become public. He was making an offensive use of his wife's CIA status, expecting that he could make it up from whole cloth while no White House response could mention her CIA involvement.
