Was Richard Armitage Bob Woodward's Source On Plame?

by Steve

Vanity Fair magazine is reporting on Tuesday that Ben Bradlee says it is reasonable to assume that Bob Woodward's source on Valerie Plame's CIA identity is Richard Armitage, who was Colin Powell's Number Two at State. This could make sense, since it was Undersecretary of State Marc Grossman who authored the memo on Plame that Colin Powell took with him on Air Force One to Africa in July 2003.

If you want some background on what this may mean, read Empty Wheel's post from yesterday on this very subject over at The Last Hurrah.
