They Say it IS so...

Jason Lepold over The Raw Story has a good article regarding the role of the veep Cheney in the outing of Valerie Plame's name.

The investigation into who leaked the officer's name to reporters has now turned toward a little known cabal of administration hawks known as the White House Iraq Group (WHIG), which came together in August 2002 to publicize the threat posed by Saddam Hussein. WHIG was founded by Bush chief of staff Andrew Card and operated out of the Vice President’s office. [more]
Steve Soto at The Left Coaster writes about Miller's Mea Culpa and Convenient Memory Lapses to protect Cheney.

If you are to believe these accounts, however, Miller didn’t know who Plame was prior to these discussions with White House officials, since there is a paper trail that indicates Miller got Plame’s name wrong several times. This may be why Fitzgerald has told her she is no longer a target, and why the White House is doing all the sweating now.
