Well, maybe the reason Fitzgerald didn't hit Libby with the full force of the Espionage Charges that are obviously just beneath the surface of Libby's perjury indictment is because he wanted to smoke out all the journalists that Libby would produce as evidence that, either he's an idiot, or he's an idiot. Libby's probably searching his contact files for discussions about Wilson he had before the tell-tale conversation with Ari Fleischer. So perhaps former kingkiller Bob Woodward won't be the only one who we hear of learning of Wilson's wife in June?
Who said irony was dead?
And then, once they've all come out of the woodwork. Bammmm!
Just remember. Fitzgerald said only that Libby was the first official to leak Plame's role at the CIA. He didn't say when that leak occurred.
