That's the question that Newsweek's Jonathan Alter asks breathlessly in his latest column.
Based on the evidence, I'd say Rove is a piker compared to these guys.
BTW, this blog was one of the few to highlight Senator Ron Wyden's deliberate disclosure of a secret spy satellite program last spring. Anyone care to speculate about the damage from that disclosure, compared to the impact of the Valerie Plame affair. The MSM seems to regard the Plame case as one of the most serious security breaches in the nation's history. Wyden's disclosure received scant coverage.
Scooter Libby was arraigned this morning--on charges that have no relation to the original leak referral in the Plame case. He's facing up to 30 years in prison, if convicted. Senator Wyden still has his security clearance. Go figure.
