    hmm (none / 1)

    Michael Isikoff was on Hardball today(seems like he has been on a lot recently discussing Plame) and said that we dont know Novak's source, and of course Novak was the one who actually wrote the story first and had it published first. Isikoff said that Fitz likely knows who that source was and has flipped them, and they are giving info about what was going on with WH conversations, etc.

    I don't think it's Ari. I believe Ari flipped, but he did that a long time ago.It's someone new.

    •  I saw Isikoff (none)
      on Hardball as well. Mike Allen was also on the program. This is what I wrote elsewhere.

      Tonight on Hardball (no link to transcipt yet) Isikoff was able to squeeze in (in the 3 seconds when Matthews wasn't talking) that Novak's first administration source is important.

      Isikoff referred to a lawyer with knowledge of a large body of the GJ testimony. I got the feeling Mike Allen has also talked to this lawyer.

      Isikoff implied that this Novak source may be cooperating and might have knowledge of inside conversations.

      He also said that it is very likely that Fitz knows Novak's first source and Mike Allen agreed citing a Bloomberg article. Here is the quotes from the Bloomberg article.

      Novak, who was first to report Plame's name and connection to Wilson, has given a somewhat different version to the special prosecutor, the person said

    •  Powell (none)
      Was Colin Powell in the White House Iraq Group?


    •  It Can't be (none)
      Fleischer, or Powell, look at what they say


      That says it's someone currently in the whitehouse, not those two who are long gone.
