Why Protect Bob Novak?

Am I the only guy in the world who wonders what these 'investigators' hope to learn from Judith Miller and Matt Cooper that they couldn't just ask Robert Novak?


Bob Novak wrote the column that outed Valerie Plame more than eighteen months ago and no one's threatening Novak with jail time.  Why?  Does Patrick Fitzgerald, head of the Chicago office of the U.S. Attorney, think Novak doesn't know who tipped him to Valerie's name?  And what is the Chicago office doing in this anyway? 


C'mon, Patrick . . . have enough guts to ask the guy who wrote the article what he knows instead of playing at schoolyard bully with a couple of minor journalists.
