Man, this has got to be BS.
Chief presidential adviser Karl Rove testified to a grand jury that he talked with two journalists before they divulged the identity of an undercover CIA officer but that he originally learned about the operative from the news media and not government sources, according to a person briefed on the testimony.

The person, who works in the legal profession [emphasis added] and spoke only on condition of anonymity because of grand jury secrecy, told The Associated Press that Rove testified last year that he remembers specifically being told by columnist Robert Novak that Valerie Plame, the wife of a harsh Iraq war critic, worked for the CIA.
So Luskin tells the media that his man really didn't know what was going on and was only informed of Plame's identity by a newspaper writer. This is pretty much the party line.

Give me a freaking break.
