White Houses Denies Rove Link to CIA Leak

Listen: Hear NPR News

The White House rejects as "ridiculous" suggestions that top adviser Karl Rove was involved in a leak that exposed a CIA operative, the wife of former ambassador to Gabon Joseph Wilson. Earlier this year, Wilson cast doubt on claims that Iraq tried to obtain nuclear bomb material from Niger. The Bush administration says it will cooperate with any investigation into the leak. Hear Wilson and NPR's Don Gonyea.
