Who told Novack?

"Scooter" Libby has been indicted for lying to the FBI and the Grand Jury in the Valerie Plame investigation. While proves that he was an idiot, it still does not answer the pertinent question of the investigation. Namely, "Who told Novack?" Robert Novack is the guy who outed Plame in his column. Not Matt Cooper or Judith Miller, though Miller will not survive at the NY Times it appears, but Novack. So the important question is who told Novack. Novack testified before the Grand Jury and since he did not go to jail for contempt, he must have given up his source. Whoever that person is should have been indicted, or called to question to find out how he or she had access to classified information. At some point in the process, someone told someone else something they should not have.

While purging our government of people so stupid they lie when they don't have to is always a good thing, the person who committed the crime that started this mess has not been named. Perhaps Fitzgerald should worry about getting the criminal (i.e. the leaker) first and getting the nitwits later.
