    I have a feeling that Miller might not matter as much as she seems. Even though her "Crock of Shit" story about not recalling who gave her the name "Valerie Flame", I think her story might be used circumstatially.

    There is one question still outstanding in all of this mess...

    Who was Bob Novak's Source?

    Novak never seemed to resist the Grand Jury. Maybe he told them that Libby was his source & where he got the name. The State Department's testimony about the VP's office requesting classified info, and Judith Miller's conversations & the fact that the name appears in her notes would then be circumstatial evidence of his guilt.

    Even if Novak denied Libby gave him the name, the fact that Novak & Miller both talked to Libby & somehow ended up with the name Valerie Plame would be circumstatial enough...

      •  yeah (none)
        i was saying earlier this week that it was Matalin, and that Novak fled from Carville because he flipped on the guy's wife. But Carville's stateents after Novak's quick exit don't realy jibe with that.

        So, yeah, Hannah.

        •  The FBI put pressure on him in Feb04 (none)
          by naming him as a likely suspect. He would have the requisite clearances (dealing specifically with Middle East national security issues) and it's no mistake that his name was leaked after Fitz became SP.

          I also think Fitz is leaking the Cheney stuff now: signal for people to flip while the flippin's good.
