Woodward testifies in CIA leak case
The Washington Post via MSNBC wbsite ^ | Nov. 16, 2005 | Jim VandeHei and Carol D. Leonnig

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.

"The second question I would have is: Why did Mr. Fitzgerald indict Mr. Libby before fully investigating what other reporters knew about Wilson's wife?"

"Are you kidding?" Pincus said. "I certainly would have remembered that"...
Pincus said Woodward may be confused about the timing and the exact nature of the conversation.

What the fudge? Fitzy is still taking testimony? Woodward gives a deposition not at the eleventh hour but at 1am?
This highlights the nebulous standards that Woodward is held to. This highlights how poorly Fitzgerald's "investigation" has been. Given unlimited money & time, my six year old nephew could have got at tleast two indictments. This makes me sick.

When there was a real security problem with Sandy Berger stuffing highly classified documents in his pants the MSM just yawned. The double standard is incredible.

P.S. Libby was indicted for lying to federal investigators. Why isn't Wilson indicted? He's lied continuously to the world. The mofo is still lying!

Well, he didn't lie under oath so he gets to go around lying till someone calls him out on it--I won't hold my breath waiting for the media to hold his feet to the fire :P

I understood Wilson's wife worked at the CIA as a WMD analyst

This phrase again.

No one who has talked publicly had any notion that the ditzy blond was undercover, if she ever was for intelligence reasons.

Pincus is lying, Woodward hasn't forgotten what he had for a recess snack in 1952.

I feel another Rove smackdown coming, and the end of a political career for Fitzgerald.

In the Woodward style of speech, I hear the following...Now Mis..ter Fitz..ger..ald; why..didn't..you..talk..to..all..the..Wash..ing..ton..report..ers..to..find..out..who..knew..what..?

Does anyone have a link that was on Drudge originally I think where Robert Novak wrote a column stating he would reveal what he knew after the special prosecutor wrapped up?
Why is Novak not speaking out by now?

I've been trying to ignore this MSM generated investigation simply because I can't afford to vomit that often but something just dawned on me:
The media has given us the answer to the who-dunnit all along "The CIA Leak Case" Look at the name the "CIA LEAK" look at all the other leaks coming out of that agency (black prison sites, all the memos and documents during the campaign...)
Time to clean out the CIA and get some patriots in there, we have enough weenies in the State Dept.

A reporter gives testimony under oath. I have never seen a reporter that did not lie. So how can they give testimony under oath?

Since this woman was not a covert agent who cares if she worked at the CIA or not? This is all a bunch of BS. They are spending my tax money for a bunch of crap and should be put in jail for robbery.

Fitzgerald has turned into a political hack with only his career in mind. He is a becoming pathetic but unfortunately is having an impact with the mindless people in this country.

Also this makes three reports who have revealed their source. What hasn't Fitz asked Novak to reveal his sources?

Is this the same Woodward who started the rumor that the Democratic party had received funds from CUBA?

Maybe Fitzgerald is afraid of the answer he will get? So just don't ask the question.

Berger, Leahy, Rockefeller, Kerry, Gorelick, the DNC, Hillary, Slick etc,etc...It never changes they, the true criminals get away with whatever they want. Can't someone force an invetigation on the treason committed by Rockefeller? I'd love to see him hang from the Gallows.

It looks like Woodward is still holding back on a lot of information that he has, and it makes me wonder why the special prosecutor isn't doing all that he needs to be doing. Libby is looking more and more as a fall guy, or a "cut-out!" Tis' amazin' to me...

Fitzpatrick said in his press conference announcing the Libby indictment that the investigation is continuing. According to this article, Woodward was deposed Monday. Woodward also says later in the article that it's the first time in 35 years he's had to give info to a grand jury.

I haven't seen any report that Fitz has impanelled a new grand jury -- yet. But Woodward apparently believes his info is for a GJ.
