Never mind. I take it all back. See update below.
Jane Hamsher asks an excellent question to which there’s no obvious answer: who leaked the “aspens” letter from Scooter Libby to Judith Miller?
Notice that what leaked wasn’t the final letter, but a draft. Unless Libby’s lawyers and Miller’s were negotiating over the terms of the letter and exchanging drafts, no one other than Libby, his lawyers, and people working for or with Libby or his lawyers would have had access to the draft.
People who work for law firms, even those who aren’t themselves lawyers, are fanatical about keeping confidences. So if I had to make a guess, it would be that someone in Cheney’s office had it in for Libby and decided to release the draft, thus virtually guaranteeing that Libby would be indicted.
UPDATE AND RETRACTION
A reader points out that the above is way too hasty. The Libby letter is signed; the fact that it isn’t on letterhead doesn’t mean (as I hastily assumed it meant) that the document must be a draft. Never mind.
