PLAME ISN'T GOING AWAY
Ashcroft Recuses Himself From Leak Investigation
Ashcroft recusing himself means he's going to get fired or "resigned." The Rove administration doesn't mind losing him as virtually no one - R or D - likes him.
He will be the fall guy.
The only other option that seems worthy of attention is that, the investigation is indeed coming to a close and it's going to focus on " a department oversight." If the result was any more serious there would be more effort to control this.
I can't think of any way the new prosecutor, U.S. Attorney Patrick J. Fitzgerald of Chicago, would benefit by being a patsy.
