Rice Says She Wasn't Woodward's Leak Source - New York Times

Some folks are born made to wave the flag,
ooh, they're red, white and blue.
And when the band plays "Hail To The Chief",
oh, they point the cannon at you, Lord,

It ain't me, it ain't me,
I ain't no senator's son,
It ain't me, it ain't me,
I ain't no fortunate one, no,


WASHINGTON, Nov. 19 - Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is not the source who told Bob Woodward of The Washington Post in June 2003 that the wife of the former diplomat Joseph C. Wilson IV worked at the C.I.A., the State Department spokesman said on Saturday.

Ms. Rice, who was traveling in Asia with President Bush, said that she was not Mr. Woodward's source, the spokesman, Sean McCormack, said. Ms. Rice was responding to an article about the C.I.A. leak case in The New York Times on Saturday saying that she had been one of a handful of officials who had declined to comment on the case.

Earlier in the week, Mr. Woodward disclosed that a confidential source told him in June 2003 that Mr. Wilson's wife worked at the Central Intelligence Agency and that he had given sworn testimony on Monday to a grand jury investigating the leak. Afterward, more than a dozen top Bush administration officials directly or indirectly denied telling Mr. Woodward of Ms. Wilson's role.
