The American Prospect reports that I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby has acknowledged to federal investigators that he talked with jailed reporter Judith Miller about Valerie Plame almost a week before columnist Robert Novak “outed” the CIA operative in a column. The article said the Libby-Miller meeting came during a week-long effort by Libby and White House deputy chief of staff Karl Rove to discredit Plame’s husband, former ambassador Joseph Wilson, who had just written a New York Times opinion piece that said the Bush administration had misrepresented intelligence information to make the case for war with Iraq.
