White House

Official A and Other Officials

From the indictment itself:

On or about July 10 or July 11, 2003, LIBBY spoke to a senior official in the White House (“Official A”) who advised LIBBY of a conversation Official A had earlier that week with columnist Robert Novak in which Wilson’s wife was discussed as a CIA employee involved in Wilson’s trip. LIBBY was advised by Official A that Novak would be writing a story about Wilson’s wife.

On or about July 12, 2003, LIBBY flew with the Vice President and others to and from Norfolk, Virginia, on Air Force Two. On his return trip, LIBBY discussed with other officials aboard the plane what LIBBY should say in response to certain pending media inquiries, including questions from Time reporter Matthew Cooper.

Who wants to bet that "Official A" is Turd Blossom? And when the indictment talks about Libby flying to Norfolk with Heart Attack Dick, and then returning to talk to "other officials" about how to spin Joe Wilson...well, it doesn't take a C student from Yale to figure out that Libby's not the end, he's just the beginning. Of what is a grisly blood trail.
