This new WSJ article differs from the earlier WAPO/NYT articles, which both indicate Fitz is focussed on charges relating to cover up the Plame leak.

But lawyers and others close to the case say he may be piecing together a case that White House officials conspired to leak various types of classified material in conversations with reporters -- including Ms. Plame's identity but also other secrets related to national security.

Back in 2003, the CIA was furious that the administration was still leaking classified info, including the infamous INR memo...

Another interesting item from the WSJ article:

Yesterday, one former administration official said Karl Rove, the deputy White House chief of staff, had discussed former diplomat Joseph Wilson and the role of his wife, Ms. Plame, with White House staffers in 2003. That buttresses the possibility that Mr. Fitzgerald is investigating charges related to leaking classified information.

Hmmm. Wonder what Karl said? Is this coming from Ari? Adam Levine? Powell?
