16. Dead right
This is pure WH in-fighting. Whoever "accidently" leaked the Plame identity to six different reporters (in fairness, it was only five leaks since the two Newsday reporters work as a team), is a bureaucratic enemy of whoever is trying to sic the WaPo reporters onto the leakers.

Because the "WH insider" doesn't seem to trust Ashcroft's underlings to do a full job on outing the leaker, I think there might be two camps here:

The insider camp - Powell, Rumsfeld, and maybe Card. Of the three, I'd put my money on Rumsfeld as the leaker. He's a loose cannon more than a team player.

The leaker camp - Rove, Cheney, Wolfowitz, Rice, Perl, and their neocon ilk. I can wish that Rove turns out to be the traitor, but if it is him, I doubt he'd take the fall. That's what they keep "Scooter" around for.
