Vice President Dick Cheney is not the unidentified source who told Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward about the CIA status of the wife of Bush administration critic Joseph Wilson, a person familiar with the investigation said Thursday.
Woodward did not talk with the vice president that day, did not provide the information that's been reported in Woodward's notes and has not had any conversations over the past several weeks about any release for allowing Woodward to testify, said the person, speaking on condition of anonymity.
Ari Fleischer, perhaps? Or -- horror of horrors -- could President Bush be the source? We know Woodward's been tight with the guy; the reporter's books prove it. It would dovetail with Woodward's claim that the source tossed off the info with a casual air. And yes, we know we've used "tossed off," "dick" and "wood" in this posting. Who said Traitorgate wasn't sexy?
