As if the only scandal was Novak's release of her identity to the public.
A new book by Michael Isikoff of Newsweek and David Corn puts this notion to sleep. As usual, Digby puts it best [bold emphasis mine]:
Armitage may have just been a gossipy little busybody from way back, but that doesn't explain Libby and Judy and Rove and Cooper or the "two senior administration officials" who tried to get the Washington Post to print that Wilson's CIA "wife" had sent Wilson on a "boondoggle." Rove said she was "fair game." You simply cannot persuade me that every last person involved in this did not know that the head of the Joint Task Force on Iraq's WMD at the CIA in 2003 was the person they were busy making sure was publicly outed.
