White Houses Denies Involvement in CIA Leak

At the White House Monday, questions persist about news leaks that identified a former ambassador's wife as a CIA operative. White House spokesman Scott McClellan said there was no evidence the White House was involved in the leaks. The woman in question is the wife of former Ambassador Joseph Wilson, who had cast doubt earlier this year on the Bush administration's claim that Iraq tried to obtain nuclear bomb material from Niger. NPR's Don Gonyea reports from the White House.
