Frogmarch watch: Reid makes his first move 


Senate Democrats moved forcefully into the controversy surrounding Rove on Thursday, calling for legislation to deny security clearances to officials who disclose the identity of an undercover agent.

Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev., sought to attach the proposal to a spending bill for the Department of Homeland Security, and aides said he hoped for a vote by day's end.

Seems like the voice of sweet reason to me. I mean, how could even the most knuckle-dragging Republican think it was OK to have a security clearance if you blow an agent's cover? So, it should pass 100-0, right?

I'm just wild about Harry!

NOTE The lead is clear on the concept: the issue is whether Rove disclosed Plame's identity. The rest of the story confuses the issue by using the Republican talking point that Rove disclose Plame's name. Obviously, there are all kinds of ways to disclose Plame's identity without mentioning her name directly. "Joseph Wilson's wife," for example.
