The nameless leaker Richard Armitage

The trial of Scooter Libby stands as an outrage whose true story has been kept from the public. The press today continues to package its accounts of the matter to obscure inconvenient data that might distract from Libby.

The investigation began as a search for the supposed "leaker" of Valerie Plame's name. But that focus was dropped when Tim Russert's recollection of a telephone call differed from that of Libby.

In a current article detailing the released transcripts of former Vice-President Cheney's interviews with the prosecution in the Wilson-Plame imbroglio, the AP summarizes the matter without ever bothering to inform its readers that Colin Powell's Deputy, Richard Armitage was the person who revealed her name to Bob Novak. (also to Bob Woodward and who knows who else.)
