Bolton + Rove = Treason
King of Zembla points us to a fascinating, connect-the-dots post by John at Blogenlust:
The way she [Huffington] relays how Rove and Libby got their information on Wilson from the State Department is rather matter of factly, isn't it? If this is indeed true, then the State Department is the location of the original source. And who was at the State Department at this time?
John Bolton, Under Secretary, Arms Control and International Security.
My wild speculation about Bolton yesterday doesn't seem so wild today. I think the key to connecting Bolton to the Plame investigation is whether Wilson or Plame show up in any of the NSA documents that the White House is keeping from the Senate. Remember, the Democrats have asked the White House to reveal whether the documents contain intelligence on intercepted conversations relating to about 36 people. The big question now is whether Plame or Wilson are one of those people. If they are, it wouldn't be too hard to imagine that information gleamed from those intercepts resulted in the leak to the White House. After all, Plame's area of expertise is precisely the area for which Bolton was responsible.
