Cooper Abundantly Clear – It's Rove

This is so simple that even George W. Bush should be able to understand it...

Here's Time reporter Matthew Cooper making it clear to Tim Russert on Meet The Press yesterday that, in 2003, it was indeed White House senior adviser Karl Rove who first gave up Valerie Plame's identity as a covert CIA agent:

Russert: For the record, the first time you learned that Joe Wilson's wife worked for the CIA was from Karl Rove?

Cooper: That's correct.

Clear enough?
