Valerie Plame Update

VALERIE PLAME UPDATE….The Carpetbagger summarizes the latest leaks about Karl Rove’s initial interview with the FBI regarding Valerie Plame:

That discussion between Rove and federal investigators must have been quite a hoot. Where’d Rove learn about Plame? He said from a reporter. Which reporter? He doesn’t know. When he did he talk to this reporter? He doesn’t know. How did Rove communicate with this reporter? He doesn’t know. For a guy who can remember voter information by the precinct in swing states, Karl Rove couldn’t remember the slightest details when a reporter gave him classified information?
