ARC's 1st Law: As a "progressive" online discussion grows longer, the probability of a nefarious reference to Karl Rove approaches one

Official A

In the indictment, it refers to Admin Official A who disclosed Plame's identity to Robert Novak. This means that the original leaker is still not known to the public.

I made the call this summer that it was this guy... certainly not a "partisan gunslinger" (the description used by Novak) and he certainly has a reason to disclose that information (without malice) to Novak... ie, Novak calls him up to determine how in the heck a tool like Wilson was involved in such a high-profile mission. Well, Offical A tells him how it came about... Wilson got the job because of his wife, who works at the CIA.

Another observation from the Fitzgerald presser this afternoon... Reporters ask some of the dumbest questions I've ever heard. IQs must adjust with room temperature.

***UPDATE***
Check out Tom Macquire for some of the unanswered questions and his speculation that Official A is Ari Fleischer.
