Plame Affair: Wilson names names. Was felon who blew Valerie Plame's cover on Dick "Dick" Cheney's staff? 

Who knew? Can it be that that the Republicans would happily break the law to smear an enemy? More Republican lawbreaking. Media yawns, collects paycheck.

Vice President Cheney's chief of staff, Lewis "Scooter" Libby, has been pegged as a possible leaker of the name of CIA operative Valerie Plame to a syndicated columnist, according to a new book by former ambassador Joseph C. Wilson IV, Plame's husband.

"Pegged", eh? Hmmm... Nice picture!

Or could it be Iran-Contra thug Elliot Abrams?

The other name "that has most often been repeated to me in connection with the inquiry and disclosure into my background and Valerie's is that of Elliott Abrams, who gained infamy in the Iran-Contra scandal during the first Bush administration." (Abrams, Leiby explains, is on the staff of the National Security Council.)

Then again, they could be heaving "Scooter" (love the sobriquet!) over the side to protect Rove....

Another suspect named in Wilson's book: White House chief political adviser Karl Rove. "The workup on me that turned up the information on Valerie was shared with Karl Rove, who then circulated it in administration and neoconservative circles," Wilson writes.

Columnist Robert Novak has said only that "two senior administration officials" were his sources.

Two sources? I know! It was Mary Kate and Ashley! Let's hope the grand jury can find out...
