"Cheney’s ex-spokeswoman contradicts Libby account."

“Vice President Dick Cheney’s spokeswoman testified Thursday she told I. Lewis ‘Scooter’ Libby that a prominent war critic’s wife was a CIA employee earlier than Libby has said he first learned it from a reporter,” the AP reports. “On the third day of Libby’s trial, Cathie Martin became the first member of Cheney’s inner circle to contradict statements by Libby that led to the charges he lied to the FBI and a grand jury investigating who leaked the wife’s identity to reporters in 2003.”
