Rove's attorney, Luskin, has been consistently saying that Rove never knowingly leaked classified information. Emphasis on the "knowingly."
Well, he has stopped saying that.
And he has stopped saying it at the same time that he STARTED offering Idiot Defenses, like "He said 'Wilson's Wife,' not 'Valerie Plame.' "

Luskin declined to say whether Rove knew that Plame was a covert agent, even if he did not know her name, which analysts said was a crucial factor in determining whether the law was broken.
