Now then, this means that, if true, Karl Rove did not leak Valerie Plame's name to the press.
I demand Joe Wilson, Barbara Boxer, John Kerry et al, that you immediately fire the media.
Much Ado About Nothing?
I wonder too if this quote isn't telling:
Wilson later told CNN that his wife was no longer in an undercover job at the time Novak’s column first identified her. “My wife was not a clandestine officer the day that Bob Novak blew her identity,” he said.Federal law prohibits government officials from divulging the identity of an undercover intelligence officer. But in order to bring charges, prosecutors must prove the official knew the officer was covert and nonetheless outed his or her identity.
So if his wife wasn't undercover at the time then isn't this whole thing a moot point? I understand that if someone divulged her name on a Friday and then she came in from the cold on Saturday that the divulger is still in trouble but one has to wonder at the signifigance of this one woman who apparently got her husband (an obvious critic of the President) permission / assistance in going to Niger. Maybe they (the Wilsons) should be investigated for nepotism.
