Nadagate: There's supposed to be indictment(s) handed down today in Nadagate -- more commonly known as the "Plame Affair." (That sounds like a title for a Robert Ludlum novel.) The New York Times is reporting that I. Lewis Libby, Vice President Dick Cheney's chief of staff, will be indicted for allegedly making false statements to the grand jury. The Times bases this reporting on a leak.
In fact, most of the speculation in recent days has been a result of leaks.
But there's no demands for the identity of those leakers.
Maybe that's because it's unlikely that the leakers are Republicans.
By the time I wake up later this morning, you'll all know one way or another if the Times reporting has been accurate.
Personally, I'd like to see Joseph Wilson get indicted for blowing his wife's cover to David Corn of The Nation magazine. Now that would be justice.
