No rest for Rove

"Well, Roberts bought Rove all of what, 24 hours? I hope he got some sleep in, because he's got no reprieve," writes Kos.


A classified State Department memorandum central to a federal leak investigation contained information about CIA officer Valerie Plame in a paragraph marked '(S)' for secret, a clear indication that any Bush administration official who read it should have been aware the information was classified, according to current and former government officials.

...
The paragraph identifying her as the wife of former ambassador Joseph C. Wilson IV was clearly marked to show that it contained classified material at the 'secret' level, two sources said. The CIA classifies as 'secret' the names of officers whose identities are covert, according to former senior agency officials.


"So who is singing to the WSJ and WaPo? This piece cites 'two sources familiar with the investigation.' The special prosecutor has been leak-free thus far, and would likely try to stay that way...The Rovians, who have leaked like sieves (most of it lies), aren't going to leak this golden nugget. Powell? He did his damage yesterday, placing the memo right on the White House's lap. So who's left?" (Daily Kos)
