Bolton and the Plame Game

News & Politics

Like your classic pulp novel it may all come together in the end. The creep in the background thrown in -- you thought -- for atmosphere turns out to be the killer.

Well, I suppose we shouldn't get ahead of ourselves here but Arianna Huffington's latest theory (based on information from two sources...) on the source of the punitive Plame leak is that it traces back to the Mustached One himself, the unconfirmed ambassador to the UN, John Bolton.

Via his chief of staff, a CIA insider Fred Fleitz. He had the means, the motive, the past. See, just like a pulp fiction?

Which could mean that Bolton himself is the target of the Fitzgerald investigation as he has not been subpoenaed and, according to a Times lawyer, "The target of a grand jury investigation would not ordinarily be subpoenaed to testify before the grand jury."

Huffington also joins the chorus of those perplexed and disgusted by the latest of the Times' myopic editorials martyring Judy Miller who could be freed by simply naming her crooked source. (Huffington Post)
