Ex-CIA official Plame sues Armitage in leak suit Ex-CIA official Plame sues Armitage in leak suit

Yahoo! News: Ex-CIA official Plame sues Armitage in leak suit. I commented on this yesterday. The Wilsons face an interesting problem here. Cheney, Libby, Rove, et al. leaked Plame's CIA affiliation supposedly based on animus, but there was no damage, because Armitage was the primary leaker to Novak, whose article rebutting Wilson's claims in the NYT was the primary way that her identity got out. But Armitage was clearly not in a conspiracy with Cheney, et al., as he was one of their principal opponents as to Iraq in the Administration. But there is no indication that Armitage (or his boss, Powell) had any animus towards Plame or Wilson, just most likely the CIA.
