woodward has joined the dark side!

Woodward CIA Leak Admission May Aid Libby
WASHINGTON - Bob Woodward's version of when and where he learned the identity of a CIA operative contradicts a special prosecutor's contention that Vice President Dick Cheney's top aide was the first to make the disclosure to reporters.

Attorneys for the aide, I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, described Wednesday's statement by the Washington Post's assistant managing editor as helpful for their defense, although Libby is charged with lying to a grand jury and the FBI, not with disclosing the CIA official's name.

"Hopefully, as information is obtained from reporters like Bob Woodward, the real facts will come out," lawyer Ted Wells said Wednesday.

Woodward, a Pulitzer Prize winning reporter, said he had not told his bosses until last month that he had learned about Valerie Plame's identity and her work at the CIA more than two years ago from a high-level Bush administration official.

When Woodward learned Plame's name, he told The Associated Press Wednesday, he was in the middle of finishing a book about the administration's decision to go to war in Iraq, and didn't want to be subpoenaed to testify.

Sounds like woodward has become a dick and a shill for the administration! He didn't bother to tell anyone until last month that he had this information, despite a 2 year investigation! Sounds about as reliable as the Fox employees that suddenly remember a month or so ago that 2 years ago Wilson told them that his wife was an undercover agent! What a bunch of bs!
And his reasoning is all-so-righteous! He didn't wanna be subpoenaed! Poor baby! But now he suddenly thinks that the "truth" is so important!
