Okay, who didn't leak Valerie Plame's identity?

How about this--would anyone in the Bush administration who didn't leak the identity of an undercover CIA officer to the press please raise their hand.

Walter Pincus of the Washington Post says Ari Fleischer leaked the info to him.

Fleischer also said under oath that he leaked the information to Bob Woodward and John Dickerson who was working for Time Magazine.

Judith Miller, formerly of The New York Times, and Matthew Cooper, formerly of Time magazine testified earlier that I. Lewis Libby leaked the information to them.

Now, Robert Novak says that Richard Armitage and Karl Rove were his sources.

So Libby, Armitage, Fleischer, and Rove were all leaking the information to anyone who would listen. Are we supposed to believe that they all just spontaneously started speaking out of school (and in violation of federal law) without orders from above? Is there anyone who doesn't think that this goes all the way to the top?
