Newsweek – Time magazine talked to Bush’s guru for Plame story: The e-mails surrendered by Time Inc., which are largely between Cooper and his editors, show that one of Cooper’s sources was White House deputy chief of staff Karl Rove, according to two lawyers who asked not to be identified because they are representing witnesses sympathetic to the White House.
Guardian – Key Bush aide named in row over CIA leak: Mr Rove’s lawyer, Robert Luskin, confirmed that his client had been interviewed by Matthew Cooper for the article, but denied that Mr Rove provided the crucial information that exposed the identity of the agent.
Perhaps, like our great leader, he merely ‘confirmed’ the name.
UPDATE – The following paragrah from the Guardian has been link-enhanced for your futher reading pleasure: At the time, Mr Wilson said he believed that Mr Rove was the source, but the accusation was dismissed by the White House as “totally ridiculous”.
