Now This Is What We Should Talk About

Matthew Cooper, one of the journalists involved in the Plame affair has said this today:

"There is no question. I first learned about Valerie Plame working at the CIA from Karl Rove," Cooper said.

Libby has since claimed that he heard the Plame rumors from other reporters. Cooper disputed that version of events. "I don't remember it happening that way," he said. "I was taking notes at the time and I feel confident."

If a trial goes ahead, Cooper said he would name Rove as his source of the information.

Bush doesn't want us to talk about this, though. He wants us to talk about Alito and illegal immigration. I wonder why...
