Outing the Outers -- Rove & Libby

TIME magazine reporter Matt Cooper identifies White House adviser Karl Rove as the first person to identify Valerie Plame as a CIA operative. Mr Cooper was released from his promise of confidentiality by his source shortly before he was to go to jail for contempt in the grand jury investigation into the case.

Mr Cooper writes an article for the current issue of TIME. In it, he says Mr Rove was the first to tell him of Ms Plame's role at the CIA. He says it was later confirmed by Vice President Dick Cheney's chief of staff -- Lewis Libby. (USAToday)
