Interesting, though this involves an official other than Rove, and I doubt it was Libby because of the claim that "he did not believe the information to be classified or sensitive."
Meanwhile, according to news to date (MSNBC this evening), there is a lot of disbelief that someone as bright and detailed as Libby could have forgotten where/when he first learned of Plame (which was Cheney) after only a month or so had passed. In addition, his notes were unusually detailed on this particular matter.
This is not likely to happen, but when 16 former agents are all of a like mind, they probably have a good reason. They aslo have a lot of information that anyone outside of the intellegence community does not have.
It is unfortunate that current intel officials are not allowed to comment on this. I have a gut feeling that there is a schism within the CIA.
Especially since, according to his own notes he discussed her 7 times in June/July before talking to Tim Russert. He also said he was surprised when Russert told him she worked for the CIA.
He should have taken a clue from Ollie North and shredded his notes.
Porter Goss is Bush's man. I wonder how things are going now that he is head of the CIA.
