More on Judith Miller and friends...

In reading a post by Clarice Feldman of The American Thinker, one point that set off instant alarm bells was her contention that both Scooter Libby, chief of staff to Vice President Dick Cheney, and Deputy White House Chief of Staff, Karl Rove, found out about Valerie Plame from reporters.

Feldman refers readers to a news story by the Washington Post, which she feels is proof positive that newshounds were the ones bantering the name of CIA operative Valerie Plame in the first place.

Although her logic is circuitous, at best, if her hunch is correct and reporters did indeed start the rumor mill talking about Wilson/Plame, then the logical next question is who told the chatty reporters to begin with?

Inevitably, it comes back to a secret hunch of my own: underneath the Miller/Libby/Rove/Plame drama lies the name of embattled United Nations ambassador John Bolton.

If you recall, during Bolton's senate confirmation hearings, we learned Bolton tried to fire any intelligence analyst who had the temerity to disagree with him on the subject of weapons of mass destruction.

And as undersecretary for arms control, Bolton would certainly have been the logical first person to learn of Valerie Plame's association to former Ambassador Joseph Wilson who was starting to squawk about White House claims of aluminum tubes, yellow cake and Niger.
Also remember, Plame was a CIA operative on weapons of mass destruction.

This past summer, we also learned Bolton was going around demanding larger office space even before he'd been cofirmed to the UN or received his presidential recess appointment; so sure was he that he would get the nod.

Finally, we also know that Bolton paid Judith Miller a friendly visit while she was in jail.

Call me a conspiracy nut case if you will, but am I the only soul who sees a likely Bolton thread...?
