I've been digging into this "Plame wasn't undercover at the time of the leak" thing, trying to sort out exactly what's up and what it means, and it turns out the AP story was just written by a bad reporter. Shocking, eh?

Anyway, John Aravosis and Atrios clear it up nicely, so I won't bother, although the bottom line is that Joe Wilson said his wife wasn't covert as soon as Novak's column came out, not that she wasn't covert at the time it came out. His wording is a little weird, but that's because Joe Wilson is doing what Rove and at least one other senior administration official did not: respect what you are legally allowed to disclose about undercover operatives.
