Newsweek has another scoop! They’re saying that they have information proving that Bush advisor Karl Rove was the one who leaked information to Time Magazine reporter Matt Cooper.
This information “outed” Valerie Plame as a CIA operative. Plame is the wife of former ambassador to Gabon and acting ambassador the Iraq shortly before Gulf War I. Wilson says the leak was in retaliation for his refutation of the Bush administration’s claims that Saddam Hussein had sought uranium in Africa to build a nuclear bomb.
We’ll see where the story goes. After all, it is Newsweek. Before too long, Rove will probably be accused of having tried to flush Plame down the toilet.
