"In short, Libby is almost certainly lying about what he was authorized to leak to Judy on July 8, 2003, in a meeting where Judy Miller admits he talked about Valerie Plame, and where Libby tried to get her to falsely attribute the story. Or let me put it even more plainly:emptywheel has been on this for a long time - and she's spot on. good on her. it's devastating analysis. does ew rock or what? I hope fitzgerald reads her.Evidence suggests that the Vice President of the United States authorized the outing of the CIA spy who could prove Cheney ignored evidence that Iraq didn't have WMDs."All of which suggests Libby's lawyers still have a problem. They're left with the same inconsistencies in Libby's story. And they're left with the increasing likelihood that "Scooter's black op" had nothing to do with the leak of the NIE and everything to do with the leak of the classified identity of a WMD operative.
