Bob Woodward and the Libby case

For those that haven’t heard!

The Washington Post’s Bob Woodward was told Valerie Flame’s (Plame) name in mid June 2003 by an undisclosed Whitehouse official. Read more here:

How is it that apparently Bob Woodward, Andrea Mitchell, and a few others in the media knew this highly top secret supper undercover spy’s real name before it was disclosed? Seems like there just might be more than meets the eye in this case?....;0)

From the Washington Post:

"Washington Post Assistant Managing Editor Bob Woodward testified under oath Monday in the CIA leak case that a senior administration official told him about CIA operative Valerie Plame and her position at the agency nearly a month before her identity was disclosed.

In a more than two-hour deposition, Woodward told Special Counsel Patrick J. Fitzgerald that the official casually told him in mid-June 2003 that Plame worked as a CIA analyst on weapons of mass destruction, and that he did not believe the information to be classified or sensitive, according to a statement Woodward released yesterday.

Fitzgerald interviewed Woodward about the previously undisclosed conversation after the official alerted the prosecutor to it on Nov. 3 -- one week after Vice President Cheney's chief of staff, I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, was indicted in the investigation."

This indictment will prove to be exactly what the accusation proved to be in the first place… Ridiculous!
