Because it wasn't enough to out a covert

CIA operative. They had to out the CIA operative who was responsible for monitoring Iran's nuclear weapons program.

According to current and former intelligence officials, Plame Wilson, who worked on the clandestine side of the CIA in the Directorate of Operations as a non-official cover (NOC) officer, was part of an operation tracking distribution and acquisition of weapons of mass destruction technology to and from Iran.

Speaking under strict confidentiality, intelligence officials revealed heretofore unreported elements of Plame's work. Their accounts suggest that Plame's outing was more serious than has previously been reported and carries grave implications for U.S. national security and its ability to monitor Iran's burgeoning nuclear program.

You cannot get any more evilly stupid and inept than this crew. This country, not Iran, is the biggest threat to the world.
