Rove Still a Target
WaPo “Rove remains a focus of the CIA leak probe. He has told friends it is possible he still will be indicted for providing false statements to the grand jury. ‘Everyone thinks it is over for Karl and they are wrong,’ a source close to Rove said.”

Remember, Fitzgerald did say that Valerie Plame was a classified CIA agent in his indictment.

Plus there is this: " A classified State Department memorandum central to a federal leak investigation contained information about CIA officer Valerie Plame in a paragraph marked "(S)" for secret, a clear indication that any Bush administration official who read it should have been aware the information was classified, according to current and former government officials."

The pundits might be celebrating a little too early.
