I watched Robert Novak on the Tim Russert Sunday; he was lying through his teeth. Russert repeated two quotes that Novak gave in the last couple of years about the CIA leak. Back in "2003" Novak said that he got the name “Valerie Plame” from sources he could not reveal (Cheney, Rove, and Libby). He is quoted saying twice that he was "given the name." Now he says different. He says that his sources did not give a name, they just told him it was "Plame's wife" and he did the research to find her name. [Edited by Don W]
I think this is basically the same thing. They didn't give the name, but any idiot in the news [biz] can easily find who Plame was married to.
But that doesn't matter, his first quotes were that he was "given names," and he is now saying he mis-spoke "Twice." Maybe once you mis-speak, but twice, I doubt it. He was telling the truth the first time and [the] second [time]. But now he is lying.
Poor Robert Novak looked all used up. He has lost whatever bit of integrity he had and now his legacy is caught up in this CIA leak. This guy will die of a mysterious heart attack . . he is a problem for the administration because he has lied for them and that will eat on him until he can't stand it. I figure Novak is off to retirement and never [to be] heard from again. All them years in the business and now he is ruined. [Edited by Don W]
