As Brad DeLong says, the Bush administration always proves to be worse than you imagined possible even after taking into account the fact that they are worse than you imagine possible.

I didn't think I could be flabbergasted anymore, but I was totally amazed by this particular depth of depravity

In 2004 the FBI received intelligence that Al Qaeda hit teams were enroute to the United States to kill Dick Cheney, Karl Rove, and Valerie Plame. The FBI informed Valerie of this threat. [snip]

When the White House learned of these threats they sprung into action. They beefed up Secret Service protection for Vice President Cheney and provided security protection to Karl Rove. But they declined to do anything for Valerie. That was a CIA problem.

Valerie contacted the office of Security at CIA and requested assistance. [snip] they told her she was on her own.
