Who leaked (who really leaked) Valerie Plame's Identity?
The Associated Press report dated June 28th summarizes the mysterious case about former CIA officer Valerie Plame. Two journalists facing possible jail time for being "in contempt of court". They are refusing to divulge their source(s). But the burning question is why Robert Novak, who originally disclosed that Valerie Plame was a CIA operative, remains beyond the special prosecutor's reach. Perhaps we shall never know.
"Plame's name was first made public in 2003 by columnist Robert Novak, who cited unidentified senior Bush administration officials for the information. There has been no public explanation for why prosecutors are not pursuing Novak."
