Say what? Tom DeLay rewrites history once again

We always knew Tom DeLay suffered from reality separation syndrome but his latest claim that Valerie Plame “was not a CIA agent” is way out there even for him.

From the transcript of a “Hardball interview by Chris Matthews of disgraced former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay:

Matthews: You said you were against leaking

Delay: You said something that Karl Rove is not being commited of, convicted of…

Matthews: He never denied it, and nobody is going to contest it. It’s public record that he leaked.

Delay: It’s just you saying that he is guilty.

Matthews: I am not saying it’s a crime. I’m saying he leaked.

Delay: How do you know he leaked?

Matthews: Because it’s the public record now that he leaked (laughs in frustration)! That doesn’t bother you?

Delay: No! Leaking national security secrets at a time of war is outrageous and shouldn’t be done.

Matthews: But not the identity of a CIA agent?

Delay: We can spend an hour on that. Valerie Plame was not a CIA agent.

Matthews: What was she?

Delay: (dismissively) She was behind a desk over at Langley.

Matthews: But was her classification undercover? She deep background?

Delay: Yes, but she was not an out-in-the field CIA agent, and that’s what the law is all about.
