The dilemma was resolved when Fitzgerald showed up to interview me with waivers only from my three sources. The prosecutor had learned their names on his own, so there was no use in not testifying about them. Hubris misrepresents me by saying my dilemma came after Fitzgerald appeared with the three waivers ("crunch time for Novak") and that I gave up their names under pressure from the special prosecutor. This is such a misreading of my clear account that it must have been derived from either sloppiness or malice.

"The book also identifies the "senior administration official" quoted in a Washington Post story as the source of the six-journalists story, and as saying that the White House was out for "purely and simply revenge" against Wilson. He turns out to be Adam Levine, an obscure, middle-level communications aide who soon left the White House."

Sr. Admin Official or Obscure, middle-level aide? I wonder which sounds better when referring to an "anonymous source" when pushing a phoney story.

Personally, if I were Robert Novak, I would leave well enough alone and shut up.

In their tirade against the Bush White House, Isikoff and Corn found a hero: Paul Pillar, then the CIA officer in charge of the Middle East. During the 2004 election campaign, I wrote in a column that Pillar was delivering off-the-record briefings to citizens groups around the country, and was highly critical of the president seeking a second term. Probing such subversion at the CIA might have been an interesting exercise for an investigative reporter, but that is not what this book is about.

Instead, he was an impassioned, angry activist who accused me of "outing a CIA agent" and breaking the law. Since the Nation had never before been concerned with the protection of intelligence agents, I suspected political motives behind Corn's outrage.

I may be going out on a limb here, but I suspect DC has had more than one intimate IM conversation with a teenage boy.

This is probably Novak's best oped he has written in this decade.

The ultimate observation about the incredible hypocrisy of the left over this. They have no problem with leaking classified programs that are stopping terrorist attacks, but go bonkers over revealing the identity of a partisan CIA agent who isn't even covert and whose husband outed her long ago.

Indeed. The book is strictly a smear job, and quite a lousy one. Pee yoo.
Baby mice like Corn will never grow up.
