Cheney Told Libby About Plame

The New York Times says today that Lewis Libby learned that Joseph Wilson's wife, Valerie Plame was a CIA Agent from Dick Cheney, who learned about it from CIA Chief George Tenet. As the Times says:
Notes of the previously undisclosed conversation between Mr. Libby and Mr. Cheney on June 12, 2003, appear to differ from Mr. Libby's testimony to a federal grand jury that he initially learned about the C.I.A. officer, Valerie Wilson, from journalists, the lawyers said.
So not only did "Scooter" Libby perjure his testimony, which despite new Republican definitions otherwise, is much more than a technicality, it appears he and Cheney were out to get information on Wilson. Just as Nixon assembled information on his critics or "enemies," so to does the current administration, though they are allowed to talk amongst themselves about CIA members, it appears.

I will be completely mystified(and suspicious) if there are no indictments from Patrick Fitzgerald by the end of the week.
