Oh, Rove wants to find the WH leaker alright…
He wants to know who told Dana Priest that he called six reporters before he called Novak. So he set up a sting: he asked Ashcroft in Justice to set up a deadline for all possible evidence in the Plame leak matter, THEN he had all the evidence sent to the WH council to be “reviewed”. And he used the media fascination with CA Recall to hide the outrage. Here’s the AP story:

White House to screen leak material
Lawyers may spend 2 weeks examining responses to probe

ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON, Oct. 7 — White House lawyers will spend up to two weeks screening responses turned in by roughly 2,000 staff members asked what they know, if anything, about the unauthorized disclosure of an undercover CIA officer’s identity.

Who ever Deep Throat is, I hope they didn’t fall for this sting.

2. On Meet the Press, Dana Priest made it clear that many WH aides...
think "who ever leaked Plame's name" (read Rove) has gone too far.
