Rove Blames Novak?


Curiouser and curiouser.

Rove testified that Novakula was his source on Plame's covert CIA status?

Circle jerk, anyone?

If this is true, then the president's closest advisor heard it from a journalist, didn't check it out, and proceeded to spread it around to other journalists on double super secret background?


Next, they'll claim that Judith Miller told Novak, who then told Rove, yada yada yada.

If so, who told Miller in the first place?


Miller's ass is in jail because she refuses to cooperate with the grand jury.

My money's on Rove's lawyer, Luskin, as the source of today's story...

Source: Rove Got CIA Agent ID From Media

By JOHN SOLOMON, Associated Press Writer 1 hour, 31 minutes ago

The person, who works in the legal profession and spoke only on condition of anonymity because of grand jury secrecy, told The Associated Press that Rove testified last year that he remembers specifically being told by columnist Robert Novak that Valerie Plame, the wife of a harsh Iraq war critic, worked for the CIA.

Rove testified that Novak originally called him the Tuesday before Plame's identity was revealed in July 2003 to discuss another story.

What a crock!

We're supposed to believe that Novak learned about Plame's CIA status within 48 hours after her husband's op ed was published?

We know that Valerie Plame's CIA dossier was aboard Air Force One on that BushCo trip to Africa the week after Ambassador Wilson's op ed was published on July 6, 2003.

We know that Fitzgerald has subpoenaed all phone records from Air Force One during that time period.

We know that Novakula said he "didn't go looking for the information. It was given" to him by "two senior administration officials."

Here's a plausible scenario...

Rove instructs two minions to call Novak, who's the consummate whore and will write anything salacious on behalf of BushCo.

Novak calls Rove to tell him what he's going to write.

Rove calls Matt Cooper and several other reporters to get the story out there.

Does anyone actually believe that Rove didn't orchestrate this whole conspiracy?
