… revealed little we didn’t already know. But let’s just go through it one more time, just so we’re clear:
- Some administration guy (probably Richard Armitage), whom Novak describes as “not a political gunslinger,” told Novak “inadvertant[ly]” that Wilson’s wife worked at the CIA and probably recommended him for his trip to Africa;
- Novak confirmed the information with Karl Rove and CIA spokesman Bill Harlow, although the particulars of these convos remain a matter of dispute;
- Novak looked up Joe Wilson in “Who’s Who in America” and discovered the name of his super-secret agent wife: Valerie Plame;
- Thus fatally undermining fevered accusations that the White House plotted to “out” Plame as a matter of retaliation for Wilson’s op-ed about his tea party in Niger.
