I know we’ve got to figure out who leaked the info, but unless someone offers some astounding new fact, I think Novak’s column settles this story as far as I am concerned. Or, if not quite settling it, I think his column certainly deflated this hysteria to a more reasonable level. Also, the Wall Street Journal editorial on the Wilson flap hits the nail on the head on why this thing got blown out of proportion in the first place. My favorite point is one the Fair Jessica raised with me yesterday, Don’t you just love these Democrats fighting for the integrity of the CIA?
Anyway, unless there’s something more than what we know so far, I think this is a much smaller story — with a similar explanation at its core — than Filegate was.
