The front page of the Washington Post today contains an explosive story proving once and for all that the White House knew Valerie Plame’s identity as a CIA agent was secret. Read a little further into the story, though, for another interesting — and damning — point:

[The secret State Department memo] records that the INR analyst at the [Feb. 19, 2002] meeting opposed Wilson’s trip to Niger because the State Department, through other inquiries, already had disproved the allegation that Iraq was seeking uranium from Niger.

There it is – proof the White House knew in February 2002 that Saddam was not trying to buy yellowcake from Niger. That’s nearly a year before President Bush tried to terrify the American people by including that claim in his state of the union.

Busted.
