Is Richard Armitage the Plame Leaker?

Ben Bradlee seems to think so:

WASH POST's Ben Bradlee Claims Plame Leaker Was Richard Armitage
Mon Mar 13 2006 10:48:34 ET

THE WASHINGTON POST's famous Watergate editor Ben Bradlee claims that it was former State Department Deputy Secretary Richard Armitage who was the individual who leaked the identity of CIA official Valerie Plame.

In the latest issue of VANITY FAIR: "Woodward was in a tricky position. People close to him believe that he had learned about Plame from his friend Richard Armitage, Colin Powell's former deputy, who has been known to be critical of the administration and who has a blunt way of speaking. 'That Armitage is the likely source is a fair assumption,' former WASHINGTON POST editor Ben Bradlee said."

'I had heard about an e-mail that was sent that had a lot of unprintable language in it.'"


Now why am I not surprised that Colin Powell's closest pal this side of Saudi Prince Bandar would be at the heart of this mess?

Why are you NOT surprised?

State Department

All those diplo-types should be replaced with "John Boltons."

From my Bolton file, for Anonymous and other fans:
"There is no such thing as the United Nations. United States makes the U.N. work, when it wants it to work. If the U.N. secretary [sic] building in New York lost 10 stories, it would not make a bit of difference". John Bolton declared in February 3, 1994. [attributed to video by www.stopbolton.org, quote lifted from Wikipedia] ...sic 'em, John!
