Cheney aide under new scrutiny in CIA leak probe

Cheney aide under new scrutiny in CIA leak probe


On Friday, New York Times reporter Judith Miller testified before a grand jury after spending 85 days in jail for refusing to reveal her source, finally agreeing to testify after Lewis "Scooter" Libby, Cheney's chief of staff, personally assured her that he voluntarily waived any confidentiality regarding conversations with her.

Libby's attorney asserted on Friday that Libby had not given Miller the name of the CIA agent, and also maintained that Libby is not a target of a probe that appears to be reaching its climax with the long-sought testimony of the now-freed journalist.


Rove's attorney has repeatedly made the same assertion about the president's chief political adviser, whom a Time reporter has named as a source. Rove told Time's Matthew Cooper that Wilson's wife worked at the CIA, Cooper has said he told the grand jury, but Rove did not identify the agent by name.

"Not quite a year ago, I received oral and written assurances from the counsel that Karl is not a target of the investigation," Rove attorney Robert Luskin said Friday. "There is nothing I am aware of in the matters that have come to light since then that would change that."

1. Why isn't Mr. Pacemaker under scrutiny, too?
And wtf happened to that next phase of that Senate investigative committee that was supposed to determine the level of interference/pressure applied by the WH on the CIA and other intelligence agencies?
