From the December 30, 2003 letter by Acting Attorney General Corney referring tha matter to Fitzgerald for investigation, we get this description of the Plame matter:

'all the authority of the Attorney General with respect to the Department's investigation into the alleged unauthorized disclosure of a CIA employee's identity" [emphasis added]. 

From Fitzgerald's most recent filing:

'The charges arose from an investigation concerning alleged leaks to reporters of classified information regarding the employment of  a purported CIA official by one or more government officials.' [emphasis added].  

Is this an partial admission that the basis of the referral has not been met?
