What Did Bush Know and When Did He Know It?

Oh no not this again.

Bob Novak Says President Knows Leak Source - Yahoo! News
By PETE YOST, Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON - Columnist Bob Novak, who first published the identity of covert CIA officer Valerie Plame, says he is confident that President Bush knows who leaked Plame's name.

Novak said that "I'd be amazed" if the president didn't know the source's identity and that the public should "bug the president as to whether he should reveal who the source is."

Novak's remarks, reported in the Raleigh, N.C., News & Observer, came during a question and answer session Tuesday after a speech sponsored by the John Locke Foundation, a conservative think tank.

Keep in mind that Bush is (and Cheney too) purported to have told Fitzgerald that he doesn't know who the source of the leak is. The key here becomes when did Bush learn what Novak says he knows. If it's before he went to the grand jury then it's Clinton redux, only this time it's a national security investigation rather than a sexual harassment investigation that provides the context for perjury.
