Say, have they arrested the felon in the White House who blew Plame's cover, yet? 

Dana Milbank does his best with a story buried on the Friday after Christmas:

According to administration officials and people familiar with some of the interviews, FBI agents apparently started their White House questioning with top figures -- including President Bush's senior adviser, Karl Rove -- and then worked down to more junior officials. The agents appear to have a great deal of information and have constructed detailed chronologies of various officials' possible tie to the leak, people familiar with the questioning said.

Weird. I thought the usual tactic was to get the little guys first, and have them turn on the bog guys. When they start at the top, with Rove, gee, it's almost like they're getting instructions or something...

Meanwhile, WH law-breaking continues:

But sources said the CIA believes that people in the administration continue to release classified information to damage the figures at the center of the controversy, former ambassador Joseph C. Wilson IV and his wife, Valerie Plame, who was exposed as a CIA officer by unidentified senior administration officials for a July 14 column by Robert D. Novak.

The unidentified officials whom the FBI started the investigation with...

White House officials profess to be unconcerned about the outcome of the investigation. Some administration officials said they believe charges will eventually result, although it could be as long from now as 2005. A Republican legal source who has had detailed conversations about the matter with White House officials said he "doesn't get any sense at all that they're worried or concerned, or that they're covering up."

Well, they would say that, wouldn't they?

Say, how's the 9/11 commission report coming?
