Who's Leaking Now?

Democrats expressed outrage over the leak of the Sandy Berger probe and the name of disgraced former ambassador (and former Kerry advisor) Joe Wilson's wife, Valerie Plame, to Bob Novak. But I don't hear any complaints about this leak about Colin Powell's testimony before a grand jury in the Wilson/Plame/Novak case to Michael Isikoff and Eve Conant of Newsweek.

Powell is not, however, a target of the investigation. The subpoena is just one more sign that prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald is being thorough in his work. In other words, the president's pledge to have a full and complete investigation of the matter is being fulfilled, and there is no cover-up. What a refreshing change of pace from the type of obstruction we got from the previous occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
