I think Armitage owes Scooter an apology...

The likelihood that former Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage was the first to leak Valerie Plame’s name has become so clear that even The New York Times is reporting that he is probably the source.

The Wall Street Journal editorializes today on how disloyalty in the administration may have played a role in keeping this information from top Bush officials and suggests Patrick Fitzgerald may have played into the administration critics theory that the Bush administration was gunning to out Plame.

Armitage has yet to admit publicly he was the source, something he should have done long ago when Fitzgerald was going after Rove and Libby. He should admit his role in this affair and hopefully, finally put this issue to rest.

Maybe if Armitage had come out in the first place, more attention could have been paid to how Plame was able to get her husband assigned to the trip and the fact that his report has been widely discredited. Actually, that likely would have been ignored by mainstream media anyway.
