Fitzgerald fiddling with WHIG

The WSJ is reporting today that Fitzgerald's Plame investigation is taking an interesting side tour into the activities of the White House Iraq Group, the executive branch organ that coordinated efforts to "market the war" to the American public via propaganda and disinformation typically funneled from the Pentagon's Office of Special Plans.

We're still deep in the woods of speculation here, but this is an interesting development. If Rove and/or Libby get indicted, as many now suspect, that'd be bad for this administration. But if some pesky prosecutor starts sniffing around the Iraq war run-up, Bush's crew could be in deep trouble. It's their Achilles heel.

Today's two other Plame news items can be found here and here.
