Plame Scandal Overblown?

Is the current hoopla surrounding the outing of Valerie Plame overblown and a manufactured crisis? Sparkey at SSDB thinks that the issue is overblown and that former ambassador Wilson is grinding an axe with respect to the Bush administration. Furthermore, Matt Drudge is reporting that Novak denies that administration officials called him to out Plame. Finally, an interesting analysis was posted online at Pejmanesque. What exactly is going on here? Is this a bona fide crisis, or is the CIA using the Dept. of Justice to deflect the blame for outing Plame itself? Thoughts? Ideas?
