INVESTIGATIVE REPORTER JASON LEOPOLD ON THE PLAME LEAK CASE04/18/06
Jason Leopold author of NEWS JUNKIE (Process) was the Los Angeles bureau chief for the Dow Jones news service when the Enron scandal story broke. After suffering setbacks in his personal life he has resumed his reporting career for TRUTHOUT.ORG. In that capacity he's broken many stories about the President Bush and VP Cheney's involvement in the Valerie Plame case. He discussed his latest pieces, including a story on a newly released State Department memo that showed a fierce debate between the White House and State in the summer of 2003 over the claims that Iraq was seeking uranium for nuclear weapons.
