In court proceedings Friday in a lawsuit by by Dow Jones to unseal the eight redacted pages in the Judith Miller Appeal, the Special Prosecutor stated:
"After being served with the instant motion,the Special Counsel arranged for the classification review of the redacted portions of this Court 's February 15, 2005 opinion by the relevant agency.Based on that review, it has been determined that the redacted pages contain no references to information that is classified as of November 30, 2005. Thus, the presence of classified information no longer provides a reason for maintaining the secrecy of the redacted pages."
As I read it, this statement is a concession that Plame was not an undercover agent and the revelation of that fact did not endanger national security. And, further, that the Special Prosecutor knew that quite early in the investigation.
