Another Talking Point Bites The Dust - Fitzgerald Corrects The Record

Prosecutor in CIA Leak Case Corrects Part of Court Filing

The recent revelations in the Libby / Plame affair included an allegation that the administration had mislead reports by terming an item a key finding, when in fact it was relatively minor. Patrick Fitzgerald made the allegation in his filings in response to Libby's request for access to documents. It was an error:

In a letter to U.S. District Judge Reggie B. Walton, Fitzgerald wrote yesterday that he wanted to "correct" the sentence that dealt with the issue in a filing he submitted last Wednesday. That sentence said Libby "was to tell Miller, among other things, that a key judgment of the NIE held that Iraq was 'vigorously trying to procure' uranium."

Instead, the sentence should have conveyed that Libby was to tell Miller some of the key judgments of the NIE "and that the NIE stated that Iraq was 'vigorously trying to procure' uranium."
