I've been reluctant to embrace suggestions that torture, Iraq, and Valerie Plame were all going to coalesce into one linked story. After all, it would be too easy for me, of all people, to argue these stories were linked. But I increasingly suspect they are.
First, let me pull together some data points
(1)Nancy Pelosi and Bob Graham are linking the non-briefings on torture with the Iraq NIE
(2)The proposal to waterboard Muhammed Khudayr al-Dulaymi
(3)Dougie Feith has said his DOD intell office helped formulate policy on detainees
(4)Dick Cheney outed Valerie Plame because of Joe--but also because of pushback at CIA
(5)Wilson's recent comments tying everything together
