McClellan's Omissions

Robert D. Novak, the journalist at the center of the controversy over the leak of Valerie Plame's identity, points out that the discussion of that issue in Scott McClellan's recent book bashing the Bush administration fails to account for publicly known information about that event. In fact, Mr. Novak charges that the book displays a seemingly willful ignorance that invites the conclusion that the writer (or ghostwriter, as the case may be) is attempting to trumpet Democratic Party talking points about the whole affair.

It should be noted that Mr. Novak is no friend of the administration with regard to war policy. His discussion of the matter should be factored into any critique of Mr. McClellan's book.
