The Latest "Uh, oh" for Karl

According to the July 16th edition of the NYT:
Prosecutors in the C.I.A. leak case have shown intense interest in a 2003 State Department memorandum that explained how a former diplomat came to be dispatched on an intelligence-gathering mission and the role of his wife, a C.I.A. officer, in the trip, people who have been officially briefed on the case said.

This is the part that got me:
The memorandum was sent to Colin L. Powell, then the secretary of state, just before or as he traveled with President Bush and other senior officials to Africa starting on July 7, 2003, when the White House was scrambling to defend itself from a blast of criticism a few days earlier from the former diplomat, Joseph C. Wilson IV, current and former government officials said.

Mr. Powell was seen walking around Air Force One during the trip with the memorandum in hand, said a person involved in the case who also requested anonymity because of the prosecutor's admonitions about talking about the investigation.

Note the date - July 7th. The day after Wilson's op-ed piece was published.

There are very thorough discussions of the memo and the surrounding issues on Americablog and DailyKos today.

Ummmmmm...yeah, and I'm sure Karl NEVER saw it...
