WHO OUTED VALERIE PLAME?....Joe Wilson is writing a book, and according to Publishers Weekly he'll be naming names:

Sources say the embargoed title, The Politics of Truth, from Carroll & Graf, will reveal who tipped off syndicated columnist Robert Novak in July that Wilson's wife, Valerie Plame, worked for the CIA--a felony punishable by as many as ten years in prison--and the larger circumstances around the leak. The matter is the subject of a grand-jury investigation that has seen Novak, Wilson and a number of high-profile administration members questioned.

It's not really clear from the blurb whether Wilson knows who the leaker is or if he merely "sketches out a scenario of events that is convincing and plausible and very personal." In any case, presumably he's already told everything he knows to the FBI and the grand jury, so if really knows who did it then so does the FBI.

The book is due out May 20.
