A federal judge Thursday dismissed on jurisdictional grounds the lawsuit filed by former CIA agent Valerie Plame (in photo) against the Bush administration, which she claims ruined her career by blowing her covert status in retaliation for her husband’s criticisms of the Iraq war. It’s worth noting, though, that the ruling didn’t absolve the White House of ethical wrongdoing. The judge called the alleged smear tactics "highly unsavory" and stressed that the couple’s allegations "pose important questions relating to the propriety of actions undertaken by our highest government officials."
