David Corn and Plamegate

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

David Corn writes at AlterNet that one of the mysteries surrounding Plamegate has been solved: Richard Armitage, then a deputy secretary of state, leaked information about Joe Wilson’s wife being a CIA agent to columnist Robert Novak. Corn observes that:

Bush backers cannot claim the leak was merely an innocent slip. Rove confirmed the classified information to Novak and then leaked it himself as part of an effort to undermine a White House critic. Afterward, the White House falsely insisted that neither Rove nor Libby had been involved in the leak and vowed that anyone who had participated in it would be bounced from the administration. […] It remains a story of ugly and unethical politics, stonewalling, and lies.

The full Newsweek article—from the book Hubris, co-written by Corn and Michael Isikoff—is here.
