Bring Rove to Justice... But First, Bring Handcuffs to Rove

The conspiracy is heating up.

There are two traitors in the case of the undercover CIA agent's name being leaked to the public - the person who leaked the name, and the person who published the leak - both violations of federal law and compromises of national security.

Unfortuantely, the two people being jailed in the case, Cooper and Miller, are neither of those two people.

One of them is Robert Novak, and the other is potentially Karl Rove or whichever other "senior White House official" who fed Novak, Miller and Cooper the illegal information.

What is Fitzgerald doing? The case is not being handled responsibly, but when it comes to issues surrounding this white house, treason and the culture of unaccountability run amok. Disgusting.

Edit: Novak is not going to jail because he squealed that his source is Rove. Fitzgerald now needs to prove that Rove knew that Plame was undercover, but I don't understand why we can't just put her on the stand (or someone else) who can testify that yes she was working covertly. Rove has already confessed to having outed her, which is treason given the covert testimony.

Why Isn't Bob Novak Going to Jail?
Why Bush has to fire Rove

And finally, a rather interesting read:
