Leak Source Goes Public, Story Ignored at Eleven

We now know who leaked Valerie Plame's CIA affiliation to the media. It wasn't Rove, Rumsfeld, Bush, Lewis Libby, or any of the big names that were mentioned. It wasn't done maliciously. It was Richard Armitage, who states that it was an inadvertent leak. And he kept quiet about it until now at the request of the prosecutor of the leak investigation.

So, where does the news media stand now? Well, I doubt we will hear much about the admission, but I have not been following the news as closely of late. The Washington Post has a pretty decent editorial on the whole mess.
