CIPA Fun

Jeff has kindly sent over Judge Walton’s November 15 CIPA ruling (4MB), which was declassified and released Friday. This is the ruling the one that Fitzgerald is appealing.

Walton lays out his ruling carefully. There are two kinds of information at issue: (a) information supporting Libby’s argument that he is so important that he can’t be expected to remember the details of the covert spy’s lives he has ruined, and (b) information supporting Libby’s argument that he was responding to Wilson’s "findings regarding Iraq’s relationship with Niger" on the merits, and not trying to out a CIA NOC.
