No Fitzmas for the dummies at du.
Yes, all I have heard on the hourly belch from ABC radio is that Novak named Karl Rove as his source, which is a flat out lie.
"So what was Pete Yost's AP headline? Any guesses?
'Novak: Rove was a source in outing Plame'..."
Incredible! And at the end of that "Al-JazzAP" story, they STILL refer to Plame as "covert." All Freepers (and probably more than we'll ever be told) knew that the Wilsons "outed" themselves all along, and the Drive-Bys will NEVER allow themselves to accept that.
That is a level of ignorance and dishonesty that makes our press look infantile. If their desired result is trashed, they will ignore it and proclaim that the sky is red and if you don't believe that, you're a Nazi.
Liberals are a queer lot. After talking and dreaming about Fitzmas for two and a half years, there's not one header or discussion about Novak's revelations and article. It's as if they have their hands over their eyes and ears and a screaming nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah so they'll hear nothing about it.
Another liberal wet dream shattered. Oh, the horror.
ABC not only reported that, but included "covert" in the description of Plame. This is known to be false, but I guess the media can't let a little something like "truth" get in the way for their efforts to bring down the President and anyone who supports him.
Don't worry about a supposed double post. This story dripped out on this forum yesterday like this:
Post #1 "Fox News: NOVAK TELLS ALL!"
Reply #132 "He's finally spilling the beans."
Reply #257 "He name secondary source as Deputy CIA Director."
Reply #324 "Drudge has story now."
Reply #432 "I heard him say he got her name from Joe Wilson."
Reply #567 "He got her name from Who's Who."
You get the idea.
Anyway, thanks for the post.
So, who's the Primary Source?
As the Capt. aptly commented.."The people responsible for outing Valerie Plame are Joe Wilson and Valerie Plame herself, and her cohorts at the CIA who tried running a little disinformation campaign against George Bush in order to control foreign policy themselves".
Is this the way it went?
Primary source revealed to Novak that Wilson's wife worked for CIA.
Novak then went to Who's Who to find out the name of Wilson's wife. It was listed there.
Kark Rove and CIA rep confirm name.
What was the sequence of events?
So much for Fitzmas.
I don't understand what the big deal is about the Who's Who listing. Here's a link to the actual listing: http://photos1.blogger.com/blogger/7050/620/320/josephwilson_whoswho-thumb.jpg It simply includes the name of Wilson's wife. It doesn't say she worked for the CIA, in fact it says nothing about where she worked. The classified information that caused all of these problems involves her status with the CIA, not simply her name and the fact that she was married to Joe Wilson.
He's pulling a Woodward by not naming his primary source .. though he does clear Rove
And that's what Novak says. He learned her name from the Who's Who listing.
I can hardly keep up with who has named who..........LOL. I need a flow chart!
BTW, I heard Howie Kurtz on CNN saying that this was a bad story for the press because "They were manipulted by the White House and used in an attempt to smear Joe Wilson, a White House enemy."
They STILL don't get it.
It didn't mention that she worked for the CIA .. though Joe gave her name "Valerie Plame" and not Valarie Wilson
Oh, the DUmmies are talking about it, all right:
