Libby Asked Bolton Who Sent Wilson to Niger

Larisa Alexandrovna and Jason Leopold, who have done accurate, original and well sourced reporting of details of the Plame Name Game, are reporting on the web site “Raw Story” that “two key prosecution witnesses now cooperating with the probe told Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald about the events that led to Libby learning about Wilson’s mission and Valerie Plame Wilson’s identity” have indicated that “John Bolton, the former Undersecretary of State for Arms Control and International Security Affairs who is now the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, was contacted by I. Lewis ‘Scooter’ Libby in late May 2003 to find out who sent Ambassador Joseph Wilson on a fact-finding mission to Niger.”

Considering that Raw Story’s reporting of the Plame affair has thus far been quite accurate I am proceeding from withholding gloating to preliminary gloating over the fact that some time ago I suggested Plame’s identity was passed around to administration hit men by Bolton. I am, however, withholding a full blown gloat pending further confirmation.
