If the White House


If the White House is still taking a wait-and-see attitude to how the Wilsongate scandal develops, maybe it’s because they think they may get more vague and sloppy press coverage like this.

These are the first two grafs from the story running now on CNN …

The Justice Department is trying to pinpoint the source of a news leak that identified the wife of former U.S. Ambassador Joseph Wilson as a CIA officer, National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice said Sunday.

Administration officials told CNN last week that the CIA had asked the department for a legal opinion as to whether there should be an official investigation into the naming of an undercover CIA employee, allegedly by someone working in the Bush administration.

Someone working in the Bush administration … I guess it must have been a deputy assistant underlackey at Commerce, right?

Note to the Post publicity department: should you comp these guys?
