Bob Woodward Involved in CIA Plame Case

How fitting it is that one of the most famous journalistic figures in politics would be involved in the biggest investigation into possible crimes since Watergate. Bob Woodward of the Washington Post, and one half of the duo that brought down Nixon's White House, revealed today that he was also involved in the CIA Plame leak case. The name was revealed to him fully one month before it became public. Woodward has stated that Lewis Libby, ex-VP chief of staff to Cheney, was not his source, possibly exonerating Libby of being the first to leak the name (that does not necessarily exonerate Libby of disclosing classified information). Woodward said that another senior White House official was the source, begging the question: who? Woodward apologized to his Washington Post editor for not revealing his involvement in the investigation. Only after special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald called on Woodward to testify under oath did Woodward reveal that he had been told Valerie Plame's name before it became public. He has stated, though, that he was told in a very offhand manner and therefore he did not make much of the bit of information. But once again the spotlight shines brightly on Karl Rove's face, who is widely believed to have been the other source in the leak.
