Rats Deserting A Sinking Ship

Wonder how many more we will see this year? Bug the president, boy that will be helpful. | B City & State: "Newspaper columnist Robert Novak is still not naming his source in the Valerie Plame affair, but he says he is pretty sure the name is no mystery to President Bush.

'I'm confident the president knows who the source is,' Novak told a luncheon audience at the John Locke Foundation in Raleigh on Tuesday. 'I'd be amazed if he doesn't.'

'So I say, 'Don't bug me. Don't bug Bob Woodward. Bug the president as to whether he should reveal who the source is.' '

It was Novak who first revealed that Plame, the wife of former Ambassador Joseph Wilson, worked for the CIA. Wilson had angered the Bush administration when he accused it of twisting intelligence to exaggerate the Iraqi threat before the war."
"Novak said his role in the Plame affair "snowballed out of proportion" as a result of a "campaign by the left."

But he also blamed "extremely bad management of the issue by the White House. Once you give an issue to a special prosecutor, you lose control of it.""
He's just a little nattering nabob of negativity isn't he?
