By Bill Burkett, right
About a week ago, the LA Times did a story about Plamegate that I said was mainlined from the Whtie House. This story was leaked and almost written by Dan Bartlett after Rove was served with a target letter by Special Prosecutor Fitzgerald. The story was the Bush attempt to make Libby the fall guy and distance the President from the whole affair. Since last Friday, Rove's lawyers have met with Fitzgerald or his staff on numerous occasions and Karl has been very "willing to talk".
Karl isn't as tough as he'd like everyone to believe, and he's certainly not above doing whatever it takes to save his own skin.
The indictment of Libby today can do something, though. In a plea bargain, it might be nice if Libby now decided to protect himself. The sooner he understands that Rove, Bartlett and the Texas Bush Team will circle their own wagons independent of all others, the better.
