Scott McLellan says Vice President Dick Cheney and others should be questioned about the "leak" of Valerie Plame's CIA identity to the meida, the most ridiculous waste of time imaginable.

The fact that Joseph Wilson's wife was a CIA employee was first reported by Robert Novak, who has since explained that he got that tidbit from Richard Armitage. Novak's full account of this is included in his recent memoir, The Prince of Darkness. Considering Novak's book was a New York Times bestseller, I am stunned that Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee are unaware of the source of the "leak." The story is explained in the first chapter, pages 1-14.
