Plame Update

PLAME UPDATE….Today’s Plame tidbits:

  • Arianna Huffington says that hallway gossip at the New York Times places Judith Miller at the center of Plamegate. Her story: after Joe Wilson’s op-ed appeared on July 6, Miller went ballistic, checked out Wilson with her CIA contacts, found out about his wife, and then passed along the information to Scooter Libby in the White House.

  • Douglas Jehl, in a confusing New York Times article, suggests that there’s a third Bush administration official ? in addition to Karl Rove and Scooter Libby ? who was actively pushing the Plame story to reporters after Wilson’s July 6 op-ed appeared.

That’s about it. Both stories are speculative, so take them for what they’re worth.
