"Lawyers and witnesses in the" bogus Valerie Plame/Joe Wilson "probe said" FBI investigator "Fitzgerald is interested in a story co-written by Pincus that appeared in The Post on Oct. 12, 2003. That story said that on July 12, 2003, two days before Novak's column was published, an administration official told a Post reporter that Wilson's wife had recommended him for the trip to Niger. The official said she was a CIA employee but did not disclose her name. An attorney for The Post declined to comment."

This could be interesting. IIRC, Pincus and another WPost reporter interviwed Wilson (w/Plame in attendance) over the 4th of July holiday in 2003 at Wilson's home in preperation for the initial release of Wilson's NYT op-ed attacking Bush.
Now, IMHO, Pincus certainly already knew who Plame was when he was at Wilson's house. I think Pincus screwed up and now has some 'splaining to do.

For your files. If I can find the 10/03 Pincus article I'll post it.

(The 2004 election won't be about what one did in the military, but on how one would use it)
It is always a hysterical sight to see the demo-commies scrambling, when the lights are turned on.

Now that would be something, if Pincus is the culprit...

Thanks for the ping, Ben. Perhaps the full truth will come out someday. From the above: "...on July 12, 2003, two days before Novak's column was published, an administration official told a Post reporter..." Actually, Pincus wrote
that, but it doesn't make it true. Pincus knew the Wilsons and could just as easily have inserted that info himself, citing a non-existent source.
The latest case of media fraud CBS and the Bush documents should reinforce for us just how dishonest some in the media can be.

(Silence in the face of atrocity is complicity. Vote GWB 11/2/04 for 9/11/01 & the Russian kids.)
Thank you very much.
I also see it notes at the end that Novak will not comment, including whether he has spoken to the prosecutor.
I agree, Pincus has some 'splaining to do.
What we're witnessing now with the CBS forged document caper illustrates that the media is indeed capable of whipping of a false story in order to bring this president down. They even bandied about the word "impeachment" over this Wilson and Niger business.
Talk about an evil plot.
