Carrying a little stick and speaking loudly in Milwaukee


Newsweek has posted a new article on its site today that implicates Karl Rove in the outing of CIA operative Valerie Plame, and discusses the contents of e-mails between Rove and Time Magazine's Matt Cooper.

"It was 11:07 on a Friday morning, July 11, 2003, and Time magazine correspondent Matt Cooper was tapping out an e-mail to his bureau chief, Michael Duffy. "Subject: Rove/P&C," (for personal and confidential), Cooper began. "Spoke to Rove on double super secret background for about two mins before he went on vacation ..." Cooper proceeded to spell out some guidance on a story that was beginning to roil Washington. He finished, "please don't source this to rove or even WH [White House]" and suggested another reporter check with the CIA."
