Ain't It a Bitch When ...

your alibi is contradicted by another direct witness.

Last week, we learned that, while Ari claimed to not have seen the INR memo, another witness on Air Force One states he saw Ari perusing the INR memo.

Today, we learn that Libby said he got Plame's name from Pumpkinhead Timmeh Russert, but Timmeh says, "No Way!!" ...

and ...

that Rove claims he got Plame's name from Novacula, but Novack gave the grand jury a somewhat different version. Indeed, remember Novack's initial comments about Plame's identity:

Novak, in an interview, said his sources had come to him with the information. "I didn't dig it out, it was given to me," he said. "They thought it was significant, they gave me the name and I used it."


MACSWAIN'S SELF-HELP TIP-O-THE-DAY: When, in your daily life, you are confronted with that god-awful predicament of whether to reveal a CIA agent's identity for political gain, as we all are, you can avoid the troubling problems that arise when others contradict your cover story by simply not revealing the agent's identity in the first place. Trust me. Follow this simple advice and it will all be O.K.


  • Is this what you mean by "wild horses"?
