Kevin Drum has three

Kevin Drum has three really good posts on the Judy Miller portion of the Plame finale.

In one post he reminds of John Bolton’s man Fred Fleitz as a very probable background player in the drama. And he rightly points to the significance of Miller’s having been told by someone — just who is almost a secondary matter — the name ‘Plame’ rather than simply told that Joe Wilson’s wife worked as a clandestine operative at CIA.

In the second he doubts the now-popular notion that Miller’s attorney Bob Bennett hoodwinked Fitzgerald by getting him to agree to limit his questions to her conversations with Libby.

This last one explains why Miller’s claim not to remember who identified Wilson’s wife as “Plame” is obviously false.
