More background on the Tefft case

I'm in contact with Dr. Tefft and hope to have more details to report soon, but in the meantime here are three more articles with background on the case: Neal Boortz, Der Speigel, Reuters.

UPDATE: Here is an unrelated article about the judge the Der Speigel article claims will be hearing the case:

No Dates for Plame

U.S. District Judge Barbara S. Jones said Wednesday the CIA had convinced her in statements by its deputy director, Stephen Kappes, that national security could be harmed if the agency acknowledged whether the information at issue in the case was true, the Associated Press reports.

According to published reports, including in the Congressional Record, Plame worked at the agency from 1985 to 2006, AP reported. The government has publicly acknowledged that she worked for the CIA from 2002 to January 2006.

Plame's publisher, Simon & Schuster, said in a statement that it was displeased with the decision, is considering its legal options and is still planning to publish the memoir, titled "Fair Game."
