According to a radio report I just heard, Novak said on Crossfire today that he did not get the Plame info from a leak, but from an interview, and that when he called the CIA to confirm that she worked for them, they confirmed that fact--which would be strange if she was indeed some covert operative.


UPDATE: K-Lo of NRO is reporting the same..

History could prove me wrong but this is looking more and more like a WaPo fantasy.

For it to move from there, we would need those little annoying things called facts.

What incentive would there be for the CIA to confirm the name of one of their covert operatives? That makes no sense to me.

That's the issue, i.e., was she a covert operative, or an analyst? Not all CIA types are covert. I don't know the answer, nor do I know who is telling the truth here--I just find the whole story odd, and if the May piece is correct, it may be that she was analyst and not a covert type.

We shall see how it all emerges.
