Was the CIA Fitzgerald's Deep Throat?

The Associated Press wrote an article naming the officials who knew the identity of Valerie Plame as listed in the Libby indictment.

According to the article, there were seven officials: Libby, Vice President Cheney, Karl Rove, Ari Fleischer (White House Press Secretary), Marc Grossman (Undersecretary of State), Cathie Miers (Assistant to the Vice President for Public Affairs) and a "secret" seventh government official.

Now, the seventh person could be the "unnamed" senior official with the Central Intelligence Agency. Or perhaps the CIA briefer of June 14, 2003.

Oh, oh, that makes eight, right...?

Be that as it may, given how chummy everyone from the vice president's office was, my money for "Deep Throat" honors is on the spooks.

As you may recall, the CIA was the first to refer the matter to the Justice Department; and dollars to a donut, the Agency put pressure on Ashcroft to eventually recuse himself. Who else would have that kind of clout?

Let us not forget the "senior administration official" who told the Washington Post in late September 2003 that White House officials were going around calling "at least six journalists" and disclosing Plame's identity. No direct mention of him or her in the indictment, unless he's also Ari Fleischer.

Granted Fleischer left the White House in July, more than four months before the WaPo article, but...if Libby can be referred to as "a former Hill staffer," Ari can surely be "a senior administration official."

After seeing the unimpressive "Goodnight, and Good Luck" recently, I am reminded of the old maxim, "Never mess with the 'man.'" That is, the police, military, FBI or CIA. You will smolder; and as miserable as the White House cabal made it for the CIA during their early glory days, hell hath no fury as an intelligence agency scorned.
