Et tu, Woodward?

Woodward Was Told of Plame More Than Two Years Ago

It would also make Woodward, who has been publicly critical of the investigation, the first reporter known to have learned about Plame from a government source.

Dear bloggers of all things Plame:

You know all that ire you were directing at Russert for not being forthcoming about his role in the Plame leak? And how, from the Libby indictment, he seems to have had no role other than to have been used by Libby as an alibi?

Please re-direct all that ire to Woodward.

All due respect to his storied career, but this mealy-mouthed fuck has been belittling the investigation, while knowingly sitting on relevant information.

How fitting that one of the most famous, lionized figures in the history of journalism is now shown to be one of the in-bed figures in the Plame leak. Here is your meta-story about journalism over the past 30 years: The guy who worked from the outside to reveal the dirty secrets of the Nixon administration, years later becomes one of the guys on the inside who works to conceal the dirty secrets of the Bush II administration.
