Then-deputy secretary of state Richard Armitage met with Washington Post
reporter Bob Woodward in mid-June 2003, the same time the reporter has testified an administration official talked to him about CIA employee Valerie Plame. Armitage's official State Department calendars, provided to the Associated Press under the Freedom of Information Act, show a one-hour meeting marked ``private appointment" with Woodward on June 13, 2003.
...A person familiar with the information prosecutors have gathered, who spoke only on condition of anonymity because the material remains sealed, said Woodward's meeting with the confidential source was June 13, 2003.
I don't think this news is exactly a shocker - even Chris Matthews had speculated that Armitage might be the original source for both Woodward and Novak. The proceedings had made it pretty clear that Woodward and Novak shared a source - here is a WaPo story and an old post on that specific legal tussle; here is an old post with background on Armitage as a candidate to have been Woodward's source, and in this post I tried to track Novak's use of Armitage as a source (guess what - they were pretty friendly).
LEST YOU HAVE TROUBLE CARING: Before your eyes glaze over completely, consider this, from the Times story telling us that John McCain's Straight Talk 2008 bus is getting ready to leave the station:
But as he has tried to claim the mantle of Mr. Bush’s natural successor, Mr. McCain has expanded his orbit to encompass supporters who have been part of Mr. Bush’s circle, and others who have not previously backed the senator.
His still-informal network includes Richard L. Armitage, the former deputy secretary of state;
If Armitage's likely role in the Plame case emerges in a trial beginning early next year, that may be a (tiny) speed bump for McCain.
