Libby: Now the Whipping Boy?

"Rove Told Jury Libby May Have Been His Source In Leak Case"

Is it me, or does this seem to be turning into a giant game of Telephone?

Mary Matalin is one of the many Cheney staffers that have been questioned by Fitzgerald--I wonder how James Carville feels about that.

  1. yes combine that with these details about the investigation and it would seem, as it has for a while to those less trustful of the administration, that this might have been a pretty orchestratedand that a bunch of indictments might be the most appopriate action:

    "Cooper, after receiving permission from sources, testified before the grand jury and later said publicly that Rove and Libby had talked to him about Plame. But other reporters were contacted by other White House officials about Plame during the crucial week in July 2003 after Wilson's views became public, according to government officials and people involved in the case.

    This leaves open the possibility of a broader leak campaign. In September of 2003, a senior administration official told The Post that at least six journalists were contacted about Plame by two top White House officials"

    "One reason Fitzgerald expressed interest in Fleischer, administration officials said, is his presence on a July 2003 presidential trip to Africa. On that flight aboard Air Force One, then-Secretary of State Colin L. Powell had a memo that mentioned Wilson's wife, in a section marked "S" for secret, according to some administration officials. But Powell said on CNN this week the memo he saw did not mention Plame.

    According to people involved in the case, prosecutors believe a printout of that memo was in the front of Air Force One during the July 7-12 trip Bush took to Africa, but investigators are unsure who saw it. "
