Drip. Drip. Drip.
The Douchebag of Liberty spoke to Karl:
Karl Rove, the White House senior adviser, spoke with the columnist Robert D. Novak as he was preparing an article in July 2003 that identified a C.I.A. officer who was undercover, someone who has been officially briefed on the matter said.
Mr. Rove has told investigators that he learned from the columnist the name of the C.I.A. officer, who was referred to by her maiden name, Valerie Plame, and the circumstances in which her husband, former Ambassador Joseph C. Wilson IV, traveled to Africa to investigate possible uranium sales to Iraq, the person said.
After hearing Mr. Novak’s account, the person who has been briefed on the matter said, Mr. Rove told the columnist: “I heard that, too.”
The previously undisclosed telephone conversation, which took place on July 8, 2003, was initiated by Mr. Novak, the person who has been briefed on the matter said.
Of course Rove won’t be responsible for this because he didn’t bring it up and besides he was just making conversation and he really isn’t part of Bush’s inner circle except for cutting up the Presidents’ meat and ratfucking his enemies.
So there’s nothing to see here. Look! A shark kidnapping a blond! Go! Go!
