Amb. Wilson: Libby, Rove, third official leaked wife's name

Seaside, CA – It's the hottest political scandal in Washington right now. The investigation into who leaked the name of CIA officer Valerie Plame has already led to the indictment of Vice President Dick Cheney's chief of staff, Scooter Libby, and could bring more indictments in the coming weeks. Plame's husband, former ambassador Joseph Wilson, says the Bush Administration leaked her name as retribution for an op-ed piece Wilson wrote in The New York Times rebutting one of the administration's arguments for the war in Iraq.

Wilson's now the author of The Politics of Truth and he spoke at California State University Monterey Bay on Tuesday, Dec. 6. Earlier Tuesday, he spoke with KAZU's Ben Adler.
