Here is Bob Novak’s side of the Plame leak. He talks about the three leakers (“two senior Bush administration officials and an unspecified CIA source”), two of whom have been identified as Karl Rove and CIA Bill Harlow. Does anyone suppose that Novak’s “principal source in the Valerie Wilson column, a source whose name has not yet been revealed” is anyone other than Scooter Libby? David Corn analyzes Novak’s admission, and notes that “despite all this evidence, the Bush White House has not honored the vow made early on in the leak investigation: anyone involved in the leak would be dismissed.”
Rove still is gainfully employed as George W. Bush's top strategist at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. There are no signs that he has even been disciplined or denied access to classified information. During the investigation, the president refused to say anything publicly about Rove and the probe. And after the investigation, the president has refused to say anything publicly about Rove's participation in the leak.
