  •  BTW, about the origin of this Plame thing . . . (none)
    I never did like the conventional explanation. But this Talon business makes a lot of sense.

    How about this? It's a plumber's job. Two birds with one stone. Talon calls the journalists, claiming to be someone else, who may not exist. Or claiming to be a conduit for this information. The "investigation" is not to find out who outed Plame - they know that - it's to see who in the WH is willing to talk to reporters about it, and also to prosecute any reporter who won't reveal the name of a leaker.

    See - that makes sense. That's why the investigation has been so wierd with only reporters going to jail. There may have been some people fired, too, but no way to know that.
