Libby Judge: Even I Don't Know Plame’s Status
"I’m not going to tell the jury the information was classified," Fitzgerald answered. “I will tell the jury that there was an investigation into whether the law was violated.”
And what law might that be? Sure enough, it's the one barring disclosure of a covert agent’s identity. And the person in question is Valerie Plame Wilson. And the person being investigated is Lewis Libby. That’s what the case is about. Fitzgerald knows that. Wells knows that. The judge knows that. But the jury — shhhhhh.
It’s a bizarre situation — a CIA-leak trial without the CIA leak. And, at least under its present restrictions, without much hope for justice, either. <more>
