Carrying a little stick and speaking loudly in Milwaukee


The CIA leak story was back on the front page of the Washington Post today. The WaPo reports that a classified State Department memo had Valerie Plame's identity marked with an "(S)" for secret.

"Almost all of the memo is devoted to describing why State Department intelligence experts did not believe claims that Saddam Hussein had in the recent past sought to purchase uranium from Niger. Only two sentences in the seven-sentence paragraph mention Wilson's wife.

The memo was delivered to Secretary of State Colin L. Powell on July 7, 2003, as he headed to Africa for a trip with President Bush aboard Air Force One. Plame was unmasked in a syndicated column by Robert D. Novak seven days later."

The plot thickens.
