Here's a series of events:

US Administration fabricates Iraq WMD evidence. Valerie Plame's husband speaks out. Valerie Plame's identity is revealed to US journalists; she can no longer work as an undercover operative. An investigation follows, because that's not right. Lewis Libby obstructs the investigation and is convicted of perjury. George Bush pardons Libby. The world celebrates a new understanding of justice.

That reminds me of this one time...

UK government fabricates Iraq WMD evidence. David Kelly, a weapons inspector, speaks out - off the record. David Kelly's identity is revealed to UK journalists; he is later found dead. An investigation follows, because that's not right. The investigation finds he committed suicide. The world sleeps easy.
