Who Leaked to Libby, Rove? Cheney? or Both?

Trial exposes White House crisis machine

AP
WASHINGTON – David Addington, chief legal adviser to Vice President Dick Cheney, says he was taken aback when the White House started making public pronouncements about the CIA leak investigation.
In the fall of 2003, President Bush’s press secretary was categorically denying that either Karl Rove or I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby was involved in exposing the identity of Valerie Plame, a CIA employee married to a critic of the war in Iraq.
“Why are you making these statements?” Addington asked White House communications director Dan Bartlett.
“Your boss is the one who wanted” them, Bartlett replied, referring to Cheney….
With that, “I shut up,” Addington recalled recently for jurors in Libby’s CIA leak trial, which begins its fourth week on Monday with Libby’s lawyers calling their first witnesses.

At the intersection was Cheney, along with Rove and Libby, who were working in the summer of 2003 to rebut claims by Plame’s husband, former Ambassador Joseph Wilson, that Bush had misled the nation about prewar intelligence on Iraq.
The White House denials on behalf of Rove and Libby came just before Rove secretly began acknowledging to the FBI that he had confirmed Plame’s identity for conservative columnist Bob Novak, who first published her name and relationship to Wilson.

H.L.s Take
Libby is on trial for perjury regarding statements he made about Valerie Plame working for the CIA, It is apparent the Libby along with Rove, and Cheney were involved in leaking the information. No one has been charged in the actual leak. If Libby is found guilty that means then he was leaking the info. Where did he get that information from? His boss Cheney? or Rove who has already admitted that he gave the information to Bob Novak who wrote the story that started the whole thing? Were they both involved? Was Bush in on it? This whole thing could unravel just like Watergate did, that is if special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald has an interest in justice, and not just convicting one patsy for lying about the crime that no one was ever charged with.
