The Plame Blame Game

The Plame Blame Game: More on the Who Said What When, and to Whom Investigation

by Joshua Frank

Karl Rove could be in a lot of trouble if what journalist Murray Waas has written is true. In a web exclusive for the American Prospect, Waas contends "Rove did not disclose that he had ever discussed CIA officer Valerie Plame with Time magazine reporter Matthew Cooper during Rove's first interview with the FBI, according to legal sources with firsthand knowledge of the matter…. The omission by Rove created doubt for federal investigators, almost from the inception of their criminal probe into who leaked Plame's name to columnist Robert Novak, as to whether Rove was withholding crucial information from them, and perhaps even misleading or lying to them, the sources said."

According to Miller -- who suddenly recalled a previous undisclosed conversation with I. Lewis 'Scooter' Libby, and 'found' her notes -- she told Fitzgerald she didn't recall the name of the person who had disclosed CIA agent Valerie Plame's name to her, even though the phrase 'Valerie Flame' [sic] appears in the same notebook as her notes of her encounter with Libby. 'I simply could not recall where that came from, when I wrote it, or why the name was misspelled'...
