    Woodward comes clear re. Treasongate

    Woodward's testimony appears to change key elements in the chronology Fitzgerald laid out in his investigation and announced when indicting Libby three weeks ago. It would make the unnamed official -- not Libby -- the first government employee to disclose Plame's CIA employment to a reporter. It would also make Woodward, who has been publicly critical of the investigation, the first reporter known to have learned about Plame from a government source.

    Wow, so who is it and will Libby take the fall or will he rat out the real criminal or most likely co-criminal?

    William Jeffress Jr., one of Libby's lawyers, asks some stupid questions...
    "If what Woodward says is so, will Mr. Fitzgerald now say he was wrong to say on TV that Scooter Libby was the first official to give this information to a reporter?" Jeffress said last night. "The second question I would have is: Why did Mr. Fitzgerald indict Mr. Libby before fully investigating what other reporters knew about Wilson's wife?"

    One, maybe but this isn't do to some failure on behalf of Fitzgerald but lack of cooperation from the press and especially the WH.

    Two, Libby was indicted because it is clear that he was holding back info and covering for those above him in the WH. Also, Woodwards source released him less than two weeks ago from a confidentiality agreement so he didn't know about this but someone in the WH did so again with the stonewall.

    All in all, an interesting case is coming...
