    Cheney and Libby were informed Niger claims were false before leak

    The National Journal has this report, which takes a look at the CIA informing both Cheney, and his adviser, "Scooter", that the allegations on Iraq attempting to buy uranium from Niger were false, before the outing of a CIA operative:

    The campaign against Wilson led to the outing of Wilson's wife, Valerie Plame, as an undercover CIA officer -- less than a month after the CIA assessment was completed. Libby resigned as Cheney's chief of staff and national security adviser on October 28, 2005, after he was indicted by a federal grand jury on five counts of making false statements, perjury, and obstruction of justice for concealing his role in leaking Plame's identity to the media.
    There are suggestions in the media that Libby's superiors ok'd the leaking of Plame's name. Libby's only superiors were Cheney and Bush. See all recent "A Logical Voice" posts
