MY letter to Daily News
This was published last week in the Daily News.
In watching Tim Russert's "Meet the Press" interview with reporter Robert Novak, I was struck by Novak's evasive answers.
He verbally 'bobbed & weaved' to avoid admitting the obvious conclusion that he was responsible for the disclosure of Valerie Plame's CIA connection. Vice President Cheney, Karl Rove, and others used him in a devious, vindictive manner to punish her husband.
They are sneaky cowards who used a reporter to gain their ends. This doesn't excuse Mr. Novak who, as a veteren reporter, should know better. He should also be held accountable for his actions.
