ON KNOWING AND NOT KNOWING….Karl Rove’s lawyer, Robert Luskin, on Sunday:
Rove “never knowingly disclosed classified information.”
The LA Times today:
Luskin declined to say whether Rove knew that Plame was a covert agent….
But this is a logical identity, isn’t it? We know Rove outed Plame to Matt Cooper, and the only possible way for this to be an unknowing disclosure of classified information is if Rove didn’t know she was covert. If Luskin was telling the truth on Sunday, it logically has to be the case that Rove didn’t know. So why is Luskin suddenly reluctant to say so?
