Well, it turns out Bob Woodward hasn't lost his secret-keeping touch. After having kept the identity of Deep Throat a secret for so long, it was a cinch to keep his involvement in Leakgate a secret -- even as he commented on it in public.

Josh Marshall writes: "From the Post account it appears that Woodward was told of Valerie Plame's identity before any other journalist by an as-yet-unnamed senior administration official who is not Karl Rove or Scooter Libby."

Yet he kept it secret from his editors and traipsed around as a critic of the investigation. Shameful. He only told his editors when he received a subpoena himself. Woodward's statement is [HERE]. (TPM)

Woodward is a freakin' sell out, too full of his own ego to be credible anymore.
