Say My Name, Bitch!

The cryptically written Times article contains, I suppose, some actual new relevant information. Despite claiming that he never knew Plame's name, he did in fact learn it from Novak, according to what's being claimed, and learned it (and therefore knew it) before he talked to Cooper.

Not that the name itself is important, it is only necessary to disclose information about the identity, but it does mean that Rove and his lawyer have been lying.

...and, this new version of events contradicts Novak's previous statements about this story. Either Novak has been lying in public, in which case I think it's time to him to finally drummed out of his job in disgrace, or Rove lied to the grand jury, or this account of the testimony is bollocks.
