Special prosecutor Patrick J. Fitzgerald is investigating how the occupation of CIA operative Valerie Plame was made public in 2003 and whether Bush administration officials broke a federal law that protects the identities of covert personnel.

In recent days, former ambassador Joseph C. Wilson IV has been portrayed as the victim at the center of a storm over allegations that the Bush administration revealed the identity of Wilson's wife, a covert CIA operative, as punishment for his public criticism of the Iraq war. But in the latest twist of this fast-moving story, Wilson found himself on the defensive Wednesday against charges from the White House's top Republican allies that his motives are political.

Re "A Right-Wing Smear Is Gathering Steam," a July 21 commentary by Joseph C. Wilson IV: I suspect that the intensity of attacks on Wilson is directly proportional to the likelihood of indictments coming down shortly against those who compromised national security. Virgil J. Jose Apple Valley

Re "Cheney's key role in leak case detailed," Jan. 26 This article describes Vice President Dick Cheney's orchestration of the deceitful smearing of former Ambassador Joseph C. Wilson IV. Cheney could have better spent his time studying the history of the Vietnam War or colonialism in the Middle East. Oh, I forgot. He had more important things on his mind at the time.

President Bush invoked executive privilege to keep Congress from seeing the FBI report of an interview with Vice President Dick Cheney and other records related to the administration's leak of CIA operative Valerie Plame's identity in 2003. At the time, the administration was trying to undercut former U.S. Ambassador Joseph C. Wilson IV's criticism of Bush's rationale for the Iraq war. Wilson and Plame are married. The House Oversight Committee had subpoenaed Atty. Gen. Michael B. Mukasey to turn over the documents.

President Bush's former spokesman, Scott McClellan, will testify before the House Judiciary Committee on June 20 about whether Vice President Dick Cheney ordered him to make misleading public statements about the leaking of CIA agent Valerie Plame's identity in an effort to undercut her husband's criticism of the Iraq war. In his new book, McClellan said he was misled by others, possibly including Cheney, about the role of Cheney's chief of staff at the time, I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby.

Journalist Robert Novak's status as a CNN contributor will remain unaffected during a federal probe into the revelation of a CIA officer's identity, executives at the news channel say. "I think we're all aware that no one really knows what's going on in the investigation of the Valerie Plame incident," said Jonathan Klein, president of CNN/U.S. "So it would be awfully presumptuous of us to take steps against a guy in his career based on second-, third-, fourth-hand reporting."

U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan ruled that the FBI must publicly reveal much of its notes from an interview with former Vice President Dick Cheney during the investigation into who leaked the identity of CIA operative Valerie Plame. Her husband, Joseph C. Wilson IV, had publicly criticized the Bush administration about the Iraq war before her identity became public. Cheney was interviewed by special prosecutor Patrick J. Fitzgerald in 2004. Cheney's former top aide, I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, was convicted of obstruction of justice and lying about his dealings with reporters.
