Well, I don't buy this, from Newsweek's Christopher Dickey:

...Given the way Judy [Miller] takes notes, I'm not surprised that she can't remember who first gave her the name of [Valerie] "Flame." I've even seen speculation that it came from one of her other not-so-reliable sources, Iraqi exile leader (and now vice president) Ahmad Chalabi, who peddled so many of the WMD rumors that wound up as facts in the Times. Ahmad keeps close tabs on his enemies, and I know first-hand that he counted many people at the CIA on that list....

I don't buy it because the information about Plame was more or less accurate. When has that been true about any of Chalabi's other leaks?
