From radioblogger:

HH: Did the 9/11 Commission find differently?

JE: It did.

HH: Erwin?

EC: I don't...I would have to go back, to be honest, and look at what the 9/11 Commission found.

HH: You haven't looked at that yet???

EC: I read it, but I sure didn't look at this aspect of it, since...

HH: And you took the case???

Just to rise in defense of Professor EC - he may have been lost at sea when HH and JE began discussing the findings of the 9/11 Commission re Wilson. Presumably they were referring to the Senate Intel report (Niger and Wilson are not examined in the 9/11 report).

So when EC says "I read it, but I sure didn't look at this aspect of it", he may just have been thinking, man, I need to re-read that 9/11 report, I don't have a clue what they are talking about. Nor could he have.

That said, some of his other comments did not inspire confidence.

You may be right, though the facts that Eastman had raised are in the SSCI report and no matter how he (mis)titled it, it seems the Professor was unfamiliar with what they'd found.

Back Story to Spy Source Outing

Turns out that Richard Armitage, the No. 2 under Secretary of State Colin Powell, was the first Bush administration official to disclose the name of CIA analyst Valerie Plame to columnist Robert Novak. But why'd it take nearly three years for Armitage's role to emerge? One answer: Patrick Fitzgerald, the special counsel investigating the mess, suggested that Armitage keep quiet. In a July 2003 interview, Armitage casually mentioned Plame's affiliation to Novak. In October, after controversy erupted over Novak's outing of Plame, Armitage realized he was the columnist's primary source. According to a person familiar with his actions, Armitage immediately told Powell, took steps to tell the Justice Department, later met with Fitzgerald, and voluntarily appeared before a grand jury several times. He offered to resign but stayed because Powell couldn't easily explain his departure as Fitzgerald examined whether the White House had tried to dirty up Plame's husband, Joseph Wilson, an Iraq war critic. Earlier this year, Fitzgerald told Armitage he wouldn't be charged.
